Medical Imaging


Medical Imaging is one of the most important tools the doctor has for diagnosing and treating your medical condition. Pender Community Hospital Medical Imaging Services provides the highest standards of imaging for every patient. We support the Mission and Vision of Pender Community Hospital and apply our Core Values of Dignity, Service, Excellence and Justice by identifying and meeting each patient's needs.

Remarkable advances in medical imaging technology have been made in just the past few years. Pender Community Hospital's Medical Imaging department offers the latest and most effective imaging options available. Currently our facility utilizes a mobile MRI unit that is available for patients every Sunday. In the fall of 2015 we will be able to offer an in-house, high field MRI scanner that will produce more precise images than ever before. The larger opening of our scanner also increases comfort and reduces discomfort for our patients. This technology makes it possible for us to create remarkably clear three-dimensional cardiovascular, vascular, and musculoskeletal images. We will have the ability to see, evaluate, and recommend preventative treatments more quickly and accurately than ever before.

Our CT (Computed Tomography)help physicians more accurately diagnose and identify cancer and other disease processes.

Images created by our leading edge equipment are stored in our digital Picture Archive and Communication System (PACS). Because PACS stores scanned results as secured digital images instead of on film, it allows your physician to access those images and reports on-line, 24 hours a day.

Bone Density
