National Radiology Technology Week

Employee News & Views Editor: November 05, 20132 Comments

This week Community Regional Medical Center’s Medical imaging department is celebrating the anniversary of the discovery of X-rays by Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen in 1895. Community Regional's medical imaging staff of nearly 200 employees, 43 of which have been in the field of medical imaging for over 25 years, provides a wide variety of medical imaging specialties including:

  • Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen discovered the X-ray in 1895

    Diagnostic Imaging

  • CT Scanning
  • Ultrasound
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging
  • Nuclear Medicine
  • Interventional Radiology
  • Mammography 

     

Annual Procedure volumes exceeded 250,000 exams this past year and growing!

The Community Regional imaging staff support the Table Mountain Rancheria Trauma Center, Deran Koligian Ambulatory Care Center, Surgical Services Clinic and Community Medical Providers-Herndon. Medical imaging offers multi-modality imaging services 24 hours/day, seven days/week. We are fortunate to have state-of-the-art Imaging equipment and are an “all digital” imaging service. We are currently under construction for installation of the first of two new 640-slice CT scanners. 

The first new CT system will be installed in the main imaging department on the third floor of the trauma and critical care building, followed by installation of the second new 640-slice CT scanner in the emergency department. Both new scanners should be operational by the end of March 2014.

Community Regional Medical imaging is home to our nationally CAAHEP Accredited Diagnostic Medical Sonography Program (both cardiac and general sonography). There are currently 14 students enrolled in this 18 month teaching program.
