Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
High-field MRI captures the sharpest, fastest, most accurate images available in imaging today. Featuring a "short bore" tunnel, MRI tests allow patients to lie comfortably without feeling closed-in within the unit.
Computed tomography (CT) scan
A non-invasive computed tomography (CT) scanner spirals around the body taking up to 100 images per second while creating 3D images of internal structures from various angles. At Memorial Satilla Health, the CT scan is also used for vascular studies, providing sharp, real-time pictures of even the tiniest blood vessels. CT scanner technology helps physicians instantly diagnose a full range of disorders.
Positron emission tomography (PET)/CT scan
This scan combines the strengths of PET and CT technologies into a single scan. CT shows images of the body’s internal structures, while PET shows how those structures are functioning on a cellular level. For example, a CT scan may show the precise size, shape and location of a tumor. However, a PET scan can detect biochemical changes inside the tumor that indicate if it is cancer.
Mammography with computer-aided detection (CAD) technology can spot breast abnormalities the human eye cannot yet see.
Convenient medical imaging
With our hospital-based diagnostic imaging center, we are providing Waycross, Georgia and the surrounding area with fast, convenient service.
Our picture archiving and communication system (PACS) is a "filmless" approach to diagnostic imaging, which allows multiple physicians to view the same scan at the same time, no matter where they are located. Patients no longer need to transfer their own films from one office to another, saving you time and energy.
