Each one is accredited through the American College of Radiology (ACR). The ACR is the highest standard of accreditation and is dedicated to providing the highest quality patient care. At St. Elizabeth Healthcare, we offer a wide variety of services including: MRI Magnetic Resonance Angiogram (MRA) and Non-contrast MRA Spectroscopy Stereotactic brain imaging Breast MRI - used in cases where a lesion is not properly seen in mammography and for those women who are a high breast cancer risk. Breast Biopsy Prostate MRI - uses an endorectal coil for detailed prostate imaging. Safety All St. Elizabeth Healthcare MRI Technologists hold an advanced registry from the American Registry of Radiologic Technologist (ARRT). The ARRT is the world’s largest credentialing organization that seeks to ensure high quality patient care in medical imaging, interventional procedures and radiation therapy. All eight of our locations are accredited by both The Joint Commission (TJC) and the American College of Radiology (ACR). The accreditation and certification by TJC and ACR are recognized nationwide as a symbol of quality that reflects an organization’s commitment to meeting certain performance standards. St. Elizabeth Healthcare’s commitment to providing the community the highest level of care does not stop with quality. We also have one of the highest levels of safety programs in the area. By following the ACR’s and TJC’s standards for safety at all facilities, technologists ensure the highest possible patient safety and image quality. Innovation Since MRI does not use ionizing radiation, by performing MRI studies for exams that were previously routinely imaged by CT, St. Elizabeth Healthcare is able to limit exposure to radiation. This results in a decreased lifetime cumulative radiation dosage. We use the most current technology in all aspects of imaging. MRI Enterography is one of our newest studies. The exam is performed for evaluation for Crohn’s disease and other inflammatory bowel disease. This exam is an alternative to having multiple CT Scan exams. St. Elizabeth Healthcare Imaging - Alexandria has a large 70 cm bore MRI machine that can accommodate claustrophobic patients and patients of all sizes. Beginning in mid-2014 we will be offering Cardiac imaging at the St. Elizabeth Edgewood, making us the first in NKY to offer this type of service. This scanner will also be a large 70 cm bore MRI machine. MRI Resources MRI Safe Pacemaker RadiologyInfo.org: The radiology information resource for patients What is MRI?
