Radiology

Wilmington Health Radiology utilizes state-of-the-art technology to provide high-quality, high-speed imaging services. Our services include: full-body X-ray imaging, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT), nuclear medicine, 3D mammography, radiography, ultrasound, and bone density testing. We also have a mobile ultrasound unit that visits our Porters Neck, Jacksonville, Mayfaire, and Leland offices.

Wilmington Health offers the latest in CT technology with our cutting-edge “Canon Aquillon Lightning 40” CT to offer the fastest diagnostics and the most comprehensive imaging of any private practice in the greater Wilmington area. Learn more here.

We also have the latest and most advanced 3D mammography equipment on the market today. It offers the absolute lowest radiation dose among all 3D mammography systems in the world. Plus, it is designed with patient care in mind, offering rounded edges and fiber carbon rather than metal. Newly designed paddles almost eliminate compression discomfort. The actual exam takes less than 10 minutes.

Additionally, multiple specialty services offer a full complement of diagnostic services including ultrasound and nuclear to diagnose, treat, and monitor their patients.

For 3D mammogram or bone density screening questions/scheduling, please talk to your primary care provider.

For thousands of years, there was no way for doctors to see inside a patient’s body, short of cutting the patient open, if there was a problem. That changed with the advent of x-rays. (Read about “X-rays“) Since then, the number of ways to look inside our bodies has mushroomed. Some of the techniques use x-rays combined with a computer to get a three-dimensional look inside. Other use ultrasound waves or magnetic waves to get a look. Sometimes injections, such as contrasting materials, are used to enhance the details.

Different types of imaging techniques are used to diagnose different conditions. There isn’t an organ of your body now out of reach of imaging technology. Diagnostic imaging techniques give your doctor information about what is happening inside your body and makes for a better diagnosis and treatment.
