Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center offers some of the most advanced imaging technologies available for screening and diagnosing patients available at the medical center and at its satellite locations. Continually acquiring state-of-the-art equipment, including the high-speed, low-dose Toshiba AquilionTM 64 CFX CT Scanner, enhances the ability of physicians and clinical staff at Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center to offer the best and most accurate diagnosis and treatment.
All Providence imaging centers provide convenient preauthorization and pre-registration. Imaging tests are performed in a caring, patient-focused environment and meet the most stringent guidelines. For example, we use the latest technology and techniques to minimize radiation exposure while still maintaining a good image quality for an accurate diagnosis. We also use some imaging technologies that don't involve radiation when appropriate.
