OPEN MRI

Our Open MRI is a brand new Hitachi Oasis 1.2 Tesla High Field Open MRI system. It features a wide patient table for comfortable access and easy positioning. The open design is beneficial for pediatric patients and those who are claustrophobic, comfortable imaging for those with size limitations, and highly defined images of the extremities.  Our Open MRI is equipped with the latest software, which allows for the use of motion correction parameters to increase the quality of scans for patients who are claustrophobic or unable to remain still.

IMAGING

The all-new Health Center offers the latest in health care technology to patients and physicians in our region. With this technology, those who come to St. Anthony’s Health Center can be assured that they are receiving the most advanced care close to home, at a convenient, all-in-one location.

The Carestream DRX-Excel Plus is a brand-new fluoroscopy x-ray unit. With fluoroscopy, a continuous x-ray beam is passed through the body part being examined. The beam is transmitted to a TV-like monitor so that the body part and its motion can be seen in detail. This unit has a table that has the ability to tilt a full 90 degrees for performance of all exam types and lowers to 19 inches, making it easily accessible for wheelchair patients.

ULTRASOUND

Ultrasound is one of the most widely used diagnostic procedures available. It provides a safe, non-invasive and virtually painless means of observing soft tissue anatomy on an outpatient basis. Medical sonography (ultrasonography) is an ultrasound-based diagnostic medical imaging technique used to visualize muscles, tendons, and many internal organs, their size, structure, and any pathological lesions with real time tomographic images.  Obstetric sonography is commonly used during pregnancy.

LAB

The redesigned lab area has three private blood draw rooms. We offer in-room private registration of patients needing laboratory services along with full service Point of Care testing, drug screens, breath alcohol testing and EKG services. The availability of these services in this conveniently accessible location is a continuation of St. Anthony’s goal to provide integrated services to the patients and physicians we serve through both our main campus and outreach facilities.

We look forward to talking with you.
