Medical imaging is crucial in every medical setting and at all levels of health care. Effective decisions depend on correct diagnosis. Marshall MedCenter aims to provide timely, rapid and exact diagnostics of a disease. Our team consists of the very best radiographers, ultrasonographers, echo physiologists, consultant radiologists, who, together with the administrative and clerical staff, work together for the common goal of providing excellent diagnostics for the commencement of not only symptomatic but also timely pathogenic therapy.
Our diagnostic imaging department uses the latest technology and provides excellent one-on-one care
We recognize the fact that going through a series of diagnostic tests can be overwhelming so we constantly strive to make the process and environment as easy and as comfortable as possible. Marshall MedCenter is proud to offer some of the most advanced diagnostic tools available.
X-rays, CT-scans, MRI, ultrasound, and nuclear medicine: we use trusted, hogh-tech tools to ensure the correct diagnosis
Diagnostic imaging allows doctors to look inside your body for clues about a medical condition. Considering your symptoms and the part of your body being examined, the type of imaging your doctor uses will vary. Thus, diagnostic imaging includes:
- CT Scans
- Nuclear Medicine Scans
- MRI Scans
Imaging tests are painless and easy, but some require patients to stay still for a long time inside a machine and certain tests involve exposure to a small amount of radiation. For some imaging tests, anesthesia is needed because some procedures involve inserting a tiny camera attached to a long, thin tube into the patient’s body. This tool is called a scope and it is used to see inside a particular organ, such as the colon, lungs or heart.
Pathology identifies and studies the following components of disease:
- etiology or cause
- pathogenesis or the mechanisms of development
- morphologic changes or cell alterations
- clinical manifestations or the consequences of structural changes
Our medical expert team at Marshall MedCenter incorporates skilled and experienced pathologists who work in the different divisions of the pathology department, ready to do everything in their power to help patients to a healthier life.
Clinical pathology is the subspecialty of pathology that diagnoses disease through the laboratory testing of blood, urine and other body fluids, tissues, and microscopic cell analysis. Our board-certified clinical pathologists are physicians trained to direct particular laboratory divisions such as:
- Blood bank
- Clinical chemistry and biology
- Immunology and serology
Anatomic Pathology is the medical specialty that deals with the diagnosis of disease based on the:
- examination of organs and tissues.
Anatomic pathology covers a large spectrum of specialized divisions, all of which require extensive training, skill, talent, and experience.
