Whether it's a routine screening, a diagnostic test, or an interventional procedure, diagnostic imaging may be an unfamiliar experience. It's normal to be a little nervous. That's why you need a team of expert physicians and technologists who put you at ease and use the latest technology to provide the clearest, most detailed images possible.
At MedStar Southern Maryland Imaging, located on the campus of MedStar Southern Maryland Hospital Center, diagnostic imaging is our specialty. MedStar Southern Maryland Imaging offers a full range of outpatient radiology services, delivered with the latest technology, conveniently located on the hospital campus.
No matter what imaging studies your doctor orders, MedStar Southern Maryland Imaging's team of experienced physicians and skilled technologists is here for you. Our specialized imaging tests and procedures include various computer tomography (CT) scanning, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasound, X-rays, fluoroscopy, bone density scans, mammograms, magnetic resonance angiography (MRA), and stereotactic breast biopsy, a less invasive alternative to surgical breast biopsy. In most cases, images can be burned onto a disc and handed to you as you walk out - no more waiting for large, unwieldy films to develop. Find out more about our diagnostic imaging services.
Providing the best diagnostic equipment possible to our patients is a vital step to good preventive health, and one we take seriously. MedStar Southern Maryland Imaging was the first facility in the Southern Maryland region to acquire full field digital mammography. We also offer stereotactic breast biopsy, 4D ultrasound, and 16-slice CT scanning, and we are continually upgrading our equipment to keep up with the latest developments in diagnostic imaging.
Why is it important to use the latest technology? Imaging studies are essential components of preventative care and treatment. The clearer and more detailed the images are, the more accurate the diagnosis can be. It also means fewer appointments for re-testing. The digital image quality available at MedStar Southern Maryland Imaging is the best you can get.
Because we're located on the campus of MedStar Southern Maryland Hospital Center, patients can easily go from the doctor's office to get imaging or lab testing done. If a problem ever occurred during an imaging procedure, patients would have immediate access to the hospital's emergency department, which is not the case with other outpatient imaging centers.
Located next to the main hospital building, the MedStar Southern Maryland Hospital Center Professional Building houses our outpatient services, offering a wide range of specialty physicians and leading-edge technologies to better serve patients promptly and conveniently. All patients must register in the outpatient services office prior to arrival:
