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 Riverside Shore Memorial Hospital and Riverside Shore Medical Center at Metompkin. Both locations offer digital mammography and both are approved by the American College of Radiology and the Food & Drug Administration. Equipment at the hospital has the additional ability to offer 3D mammograms for our patients who need it. Call 302-2102 to schedule a 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.
