Modalities include:

Bone Density Scans

A bone density scan measures the density of bone in a person and determines the risk of fractures and osteoporosis. Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) measures bone density by detecting the extent to which bones absorb photons that are generated by very low-level X-rays.

Recommended for post-menopausal women every 2 years – or earlier / more frequently depending on risk factors

CT or CAT scans (Computerized Axial Tomography)

CT scans use X-rays to produce computer-generated images of the soft tissue within the body, including the brain. They are frequently used to detect tumors, inflammatory conditions, stroke, obstructions, trauma, and kidney stones.

 

Available 24/7/365 for emergent needs through Emergency Department or Convenient Care
Same or next day appointments, pending insurance approval
New technology
Faster, with lower radiation
Low dose CT for lungs recommended for age 50-80 if current smoker or quit within 15 years

State-of-the-Art CT

Schuyler Hospital has introduced a new Computed Tomography (CT) suite within the Hospital including the addition of a new state-of-the-art CT unit.

Schuyler Hospital has further solidified its commitment to higher diagnostic quality images at a lower dose to the patient with the addition of GE Healthcare’s leading CT imaging technology.

The Revolution Maxima delivers high-quality images while delivering optimized dose levels with a quicker scanning speed.

This new CT unit offers the “gold standard” of care in today’s Radiology environment when it comes to the time the patient needs to be in the scanner for their CT scan. It also offers a lower radiation dose as compared to the old CT unit. This new CT unit is compliant with the “Image Wisely” program concept of providing the lowest possible radiation dose to the patient and, at the same time, being able to obtain superior CT images for diagnosis. This “gold standard” of care is important for our pediatric patients as well and has been a huge focus of the American College of Radiology and the Joint Commission of pediatric imaging.

The Revolution Maxima is equipped with an exclusive low dose reconstruction technology that can help physicians significantly reduce dose while maintaining the high image quality and low contrast detectability they need for accurate diagnosis.

The Revolution Maxima system is a 64-slice scanner that allows for fast, high-quality acquisition at optimized dose for patients young and old, large and small, and can be used across a wide spectrum of procedures.

Same-day and next-day appointments are available, depending on insurance approval.

CT Pulmonary Angiography

CT Pulmonary Angiography aids in the diagnosis of acute and chronic pulmonary embolism.

Fluoroscopy Studies – UGI, Barium Swallow, & Barium Enemas

Fluoroscopy uses X-rays to capture an image of an organ while it is functioning. Unlike a conventional X-ray, fluoroscopy allows the physician to see a “live” image of the body’s internal organs in order to observe their size, shape and movement.

At Schuyler Hospital, we offer arthrograms as part of our fluoroscopy services.

Mammography

A mammogram is an X-ray image of the breast, used to check for tumors, cysts, calcifications, or other abnormalities. Schuyler Hospital’s Computer Assisted Detection (CAD) mammography equipment serves as a “second pair of eyes” to ensure that radiologists don’t miss a suspect area on an image. The CAD equipment identifies regions that may contain an abnormality and marks them for further analysis by the radiologist.

Appointments Monday-Friday and Saturday mornings
Screening mammograms recommended for age 40 and older annually – or earlier / more frequently depending on risk factors
Can schedule same-day additional imaging as needed

MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging)

An MRI scan does not use x-rays or radiation. Instead, it uses a powerful magnetic field and radio waves to provide computerized images. An MRI can detect problems associated with joints, muscles, cartilage, and internal organs as well as other parts of the body. MRI Services are available 5 days a week at Schuyler Hospital.

Advanced MRI

Schuyler Hospital‘s new scanning technology combines the advancements in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) with the sophisticated engineering of a 1.5T wide-bore system.

This new scanner provides a whole new level of patient comfort with flexible coil designs and novel applications designed to minimize scan times and improve image quality. This is just another example of Schuyler Hospital’s commitment to providing patients with the latest in diagnostic imaging technology.

This new scanner, the SIGNA™ Voyager from GE Healthcare, is built with contemporary architecture that delivers deeper signal penetration and sharper, high-quality images. The intelligent design automates patient protocols to help decrease exam times and accommodate more patients per day. The SIGNA™ Voyager comes equipped with the SIGNA™ Works productivity platform, a robust workflow solution designed to maximize clinical performance and simplify operational efficiency.

Same-day or next-day appointments are available, depending on insurance approval.

To make an appointment, call (607) 535-8613 or email info@schuylerhospital.org.

Ultrasound (Obstetrical/GYN, Abdominal, & Vascular)

Ultrasound technology uses high frequency sound waves to create images. The sound waves are bounced off of human tissue, and the reflected “echoes” are converted into a picture called a sonogram. Ultrasound is often used to evaluate a fetus during pregnancy, and can also be used to examine the chest, abdomen and blood vessels.

We offer same or next day appointments, pending insurance approval.

Appointments can be made Monday-Friday to 8 p.m. and Saturday mornings.

X-ray

First used in the late 1800s, X-rays continue to play a prominent role in medical diagnosis. An X-ray is a high-energy beam used in low doses to diagnose a variety of conditions ranging from broken bones to abnormal tissue growth such as tumors.

X-rays are available 24/7/365 for emergent needs through Emergency
Department or Convenient Care.

For non-emergency needs, we offer same or next day appointments, pending insurance approval.
