State-of-the-art diagnosis for our patients
Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital completed its new Imaging Services Department in November 2009, creating a new state-of-the-art department that now features updated advanced-technology, additional state-of-the-art capabilities in ultra sound,
vascular lab and nuclear medicine as well as modernized offices, lounge and waiting rooms.
The first phase of the expansion, completed in April 2008, enabled the hospital to offer many life-saving specialized diagnostic procedures, such as diagnostic heart catheterizations, and an array of new special procedures with interventional exams. Shortly thereafter, a radiographic fluoroscopy room was added, as well as a brand new corridor, dressing room, bathroom and an office. A new computerized radiographic fluoroscopy unit assists physicians with minor special radiology and intervention procedures.
One of the most exciting and significant upgrades in the department was moving from a single-slice CT scanner to a 64-slice machine. The new scanner not only scans much faster, but it also enhances the images that the radiologists and physicians use for diagnostic purposes. The new CT machine now allows scans that used to take 45 minutes to be completed in only 5 to 10 minutes.
With the addition of the latest, most innovative equipment and sparkling new examination rooms, it’s easy to provide top quality, fast service and comfortable accommodations to patients. In addition, physicians in the Santa Clarita Valley appreciate the quality and accessibility of these vital diagnostic and interventional services in their community.
