Medical Imaging at Glens Falls Hospital
Glens Falls Hospital continues to invest signi cantly in state-of-the-art medical imaging equipment,
most notably through the development of MRI services, as well as the addition of a new GE SPECT/CT unit installed in March 2017. SPECT/CT systems combine single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) and computed tomography (CT) into a single image, and presents combined results to aid physicians in making treatment decisions all in one study. The new nuclear medicine camera provides unique information that often cannot be obtained by other imaging procedures and continues to position Glens Falls Hospital as a leader in medical imaging, while expanding specialized services for our cardiac and oncology patients.
Plans continue into 2018 for an expansion of our existing medical imaging department, to accommodate the addition of a new Siemens 1.5T wide-bore MRI machine. The new MRI will continue to support the hospital’s patient-focused care and introduce a new service to the already existing modalities of X-Ray, Mammography, Ultrasound, CT, and Nuclear Medicine imaging services.
