Services Provided Include

MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging)

MRI Technologists at Kaweah Health Imaging have over 20 years of experience.

GE's 1.5 tesla Hi Speed Plus MRI with eight channel Excite technology provides the finest MRI images quickly, accurately, and with extreme detail. Our "short bore" technology also provides a more comfortable environment that will make the exam less stressful.

MRI has proven very valuable in diagnosing a broad range of conditions, including cancer, heart and vascular disease, stroke and musculoskeletal disorders.

CT Scan (Computed Tomography)

Toshiba's Aquil ion 16 Helical CT is one of the most highly advanced units available. Highly detailed images are acquired within seconds to provide our patients the most comfortable experience in CT procedures.

A CT scan can be used to study many parts of your body, such as the chest, abdomen, pelvis and extremities. It can also acquire images of internal organs that would otherwise be too hard to see, such as the liver, pancreas, intestines, kidneys, adrenal glands, lungs, heart and blood vessels.

Digital Imaging Units

Our diagnostic x-ray units are completely digital, film less technology. An x-ray is taken and within several seconds, the image is on a monitor and the patient on their way home.

Picture Archiving Communications System (PACS)

Kaweah Health Imaging Center is a filmless facility, meaning physicians can access any films taken at Kaweah Health Imaging Center or at Kaweah Health Medical Center for immediate electronic viewing

on line, at the hospital, their office or their homes. The speed in which we provide the information for physicians to provide treatment could not be faster.

Ultrasound

Kaweah Health Imaging Center provides a wide-range of ultrasound services performed by licensed technologists with more than 23 years of experience. We feature technology that includes color Aow and Doppler capabilities.

Digital Mammography

Kaweah Health Breast Center is home to Visalia's first digital mammography units. A digital mammogram uses a special detector to capture and convert x-ray energy into digital data. Digital technology also offers better visibility of the entire breast. In addition, digital now makes the mammogram process faster than film and is available to the radiologist electronically providing instant extremely detailed results.

The combination of full-field digital mammography equipment in conjunction with the MammoPad breast cushion, dramatically eases the discomfort some women experience during their exam. This state of the art technology and added comfort makes Kaweah Health Breast Center the number one choice for patients choosing a mammography provider.

Breast MRI

Added in spring of 2007, Kaweah Health Imaging Center became the first center in Tulare County to provide Breast MRI technology.

MRI of the breast is not a replacement for mammog­raphy or ultrasound imaging but rather is a supple­mental tool for detecting and staging breast cancer and other breast abnormalities.

Kaweah Health Imaging Center's Breast Center is accredited by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) and the ACR (American College of Radiology). We are a softer Mammogram provider and one of only two centers in the central valley with this designation.
