In a joint venture, Hutcheson Medical Center and Diagnostic Radiology Consultants formed the first all digital imaging center in the area and the first High Field Open MRI. Under the medical direction of John Nelson, MD, Battlefield Imaging boasts of offering world class imaging through its many services:
High Field 1.5 Open MRI
Battlefield Imaging is home to one of the world's first open 1.5 T magnetic resonance imaging systems, used for detection, diagnosis and treatment planning of cancer. By providing the greatest patient comfort and advanced imaging capabilities, the new Espree MRI scanner offers patients the best of both worlds.
Battlefield Imaging is one of the first centers to unveil the latest technology of digital mammography, which converts x-rays directly to incredibly detailed grayscale images. Patients describe much less discomfort, and the radiation dose associated with each digital mammogram is reduced by as much as 40 percent compared to standard high contrast film-based mammograms. This new technology accommodates virtually all breast sizes.
