Diagnostic Imaging

Advanced Imaging Technology

Today’s advanced imaging technology makes it possible to see inside the human body more clearly than ever before. Our sophisticated equipment enables doctors to diagnose and treat disease faster and with even greater accuracy. Along with the confidence that comes from knowing that your medical team is equipped with the diagnostic tools required to provide better care for you, our investment in technology means you’ll benefit from quicker, more comfortable procedures.

Patient Centered Care

We designed our Imaging Department to maximize your comfort. Our friendly staff is dedicated to making your experience here as pleasant as possible. For the convenience of our patients and their referring physicians, we provide:

  • Easy and flexible scheduling, including some walk-in appointments
  • Comfortable waiting areas
  • Prompt delivery of test results
  • Faster, Better Communication

Because we use a fully digital, electronic imaging system, your doctor has immediate access to the results of your diagnostic procedures – and can view them on a computer screen, using secure Internet access, from home, the office or the hospital.

Our electronic archiving also makes your entire hospital record available to authorized staff at the click of a computer button. If you come back to the hospital with an emergency, your information is instantly available to your doctors and nurses for faster care.

To schedule an appointment in our Imaging Department, please call 801-807-7120.

Preparing for Your Imaging Procedure

If you have a scheduled appointment, please discuss the procedure and any special instructions with your doctor before you arrive. If a test is ordered while you are a patient at the hospital, your physician, nurse or technician can explain the procedure and answer any questions you have.
These general guidelines will help you prepare for and stay comfortable during your procedure:

  • Wear loose-fitting clothes. Don’t wear items containing metal. You may be asked to change into a hospital gown. In some cases, you may be asked to remove jewelry, watches, hairpins, eyeglasses or dentures.
  • Some tests require that you go without eating or drinking for a specified time beforehand. Be sure to ask your doctor about this at least 24 hours before your procedure.
  • Tell your technologist if there is any chance you may be pregnant or if you are breastfeeding.
  • Tell your technologist if you are allergic to shellfish or iodine.
  • Some procedures require you to remain still for a period of time. Your technologist will explain what you need to do for a successful procedure.

Advanced Imaging Capabilities

Our Imaging department includes some of the most advanced medical equipment in use today. In addition, all of our systems are digital, enabling us to provide higher quality images and faster retrieval. With our board-certified radiologists and experienced technicians making use of these sophisticated technologies, our capabilities translate into services for you that are second to none.

128-slice CT Scanner

Computer Tomography (CT) scans create images of internal organs, tissues and bones. In just seconds, this advanced technology can make a complete scan of your entire body — or produce detailed views of a targeted area, such as the brain or heart. Physicians can view the individual images (called “slices”) for specific detail. Or they can assemble the images to create a three-dimensional view of an organ. The result often is a faster, more precise diagnosis. The 128-slice CT scanner in our Imaging Department is among the most sophisticated available.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging

MRI technology relies on a combination of radio waves, computer technology and a strong magnetic field to produce high-definition, three-dimensional images of internal organs and structures. Physicians order MRIs to diagnose a wide range of conditions, from cancer, heart and vascular disease and strokes to joint and muscle disorders.

Nuclear Medicine

Nuclear medicine uses tiny, safe levels of radioactive liquid to help physicians diagnose disease. The liquid is formulated so that after you drink it or receive it through an IV, it goes to the part of the body being studied. Then, special cameras scan the affected area. The cameras can detect disease by registering metabolic changes made visible by the liquid. Nuclear medicine procedures are painless and you are exposed to no more radiation than you would receive from a traditional X-ray.

General X-ray

X-rays are the most traditional form of diagnostic imaging. Even with the advent of many newer and highly advanced technologies, X-rays remain an important part of our Imaging Department and are commonly used to view broken bones and other medical conditions.

Radiographic/Fluoroscopic (R&F) Unit

Radiographic/Fluoroscopic equipment is most commonly used for upper gastrointestinal and barium studies to detect the cause digestive problems. We also use this technology to detect spinal cord abnormalities, fractures of vertebrae, and certain internal organ functions.

Digital Mammography

Digital Mammography is used for the screening and early detection of breast cancer. Women over 40 are encouraged to have a mammogram annually. To make this procedure more comfortable for our patients, we use soft, cushioned pads on our mammography equipment.

3D Mammography

Davis Hospital and Medical Center offers 3D mammography, an advanced, potentially life-saving breast cancer screening procedure for women. This service is administered by certified mammography technologists and interpreted by fellowship-trained breast radiologists. It’s just another way we can uphold our commitment to provide patients in Layton and the surrounding areas with excellent breast care.

Schedule Your Mammogram

Ultrasound

Ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to produce images inside the body that can be viewed on a monitor. It’s a safe and painless way to view the health and development of a baby before birth. Ultrasound can be used to view other areas of the body, including the heart, liver, bladder, kidneys and breasts.

HeartView Screening

Detect heart disease long before symptoms occur with a quick 10-minute, non-invasive HeartView Screening for only $69. It  may save your life.

The HeartView screening will be read by a physician who will look for calcification in the arteries of the heart. A calcium score will be provided which helps your doctors determine your risk for having a heart attack.

How is the scan performed and what can I expect?

The scan is performed on a CT scanner. You will lie flat on the table for a few minutes while the scanner is setup. A few electrodes are placed on your chest to time the images with your heart beats. The actual scan will take about 12–18 seconds while you hold your breath. The whole process should be less than 10 minutes.

Is there anything I should do to prepare for the screening?

  • It is best if you do not drink caffeine or smoke prior to the scan. Caffeine and smoking can affect your heart rate during the exam.

Do I need a doctor’s order?

  • No.  We can help you determine if you are a candidate  and schedule you for the study through our Well line (1-866-431-WELL).
  • It is best if you provide us with the name and contact information of your primary care provider, so that we can ensure they receive the results of your exam.

Call 1-866-431-9355 today to schedule a HeartView Scan.
