Radiology Services at Shoreline Medical Center
As a new, state-of-the-art facility, the Middlesex Hospital Shoreline Medical Center has the advantage of an all-digital, filmless Radiology Department. This technology enables us to produce the clearest, most precise images possible, using the most modern equipment available. The Center offers the following radiologic tests:
Technology-certified mammography by the American Registry of Radiologic Technology produce film images of the breast, which are read by board-certified radiologists.
Open and Closed MRI
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) uses magnetic fields and radio waves to produce accurate anatomical images that, when aided by a computer, can be viewed from any different angles.
High-resolution duplex color Doppler ultrasound uses sound waves to look inside the body, and is frequently used for monitoring fetal development. Technologists certified by the American Institute of Ultrasound and Medicine.
Advanced digital technology makes real-time consultation possible between radiologists at Middlesex Hospital and the Marlborough Medical Center, 24 hours a day.
An X-ray based technology that can assess an organ or body in real time. Typical fluoroscopies include gastrointestinal or barium GI) studies.
High Speed Multi-Slice CT Scan (“CAT” Scan)
CT scans use a computer to enhance X-ray type images. Typical CT scanners create image slices one at a time; our machine creates two images at the same time. Images are then assembled into a very detailed, three-dimensional view.
An x-ray exam of the blood vessels, this procedure is performed to help doctors identify diseased, narrowed, enlarged, and blocked vessels, and to determine where internal bleeding may be occurring.
A bone density scan, along with a patient's medical history, is a useful aid in evaluating the probability of a fracture or osteoporosis and whether any preventative treatment is needed.
