We offer:

  • SPECT nuclear medicine camera. Using gamma rays, a high-tech camera captures 2-D images from multiple angles. A computer assembles a 3-D view that can show thin slices along any axis of the body. Used for cardiac work, bone scans and more. 
  • State-of-the-art radiographic/fluoroscopic imaging. Fluroscopy allows us to look through the body while things are actually happening. (We can watch someone drink a barium mixture, for example, or see iodine flow through a vein.) This test may be used to examine organs or in cases of ulcer, swallowing disorders, cancers, kidney stones or gallstones. 
  • MRI 
  • CT scans
  • Moderate sedation to help those with claustrophobia get the best possible results from their MRI or CT scan. Open units typically offer weaker magnets, yielding lower-resolution images. Get the best possible result — in comfort — by taking advantage of our sedation program. 
  • Cardiac CT for Calcium Scoring studies, which show deposits in arteries — a marker of coronary artery disease. Insurance does not pay for this screening. 
  • Ultrasound
  • Mammograms, offered at both Shore Memorial Hospital and Shore Medical Center at Metompkin. Both programs are approved by the American College of Radiology and the Food & Drug Administration. Equipment at Metompkin is identical to that at the hospital. Call 414-8747 to schedule procedure at either location.
  • Stereotactic breast biopsy. Suspicious tissue is removed from the breast using a hollow needle guided by special Xrays. It's an outpatient procedure that's less costly than a traditional biopsy, with little pain and no scarring.
