Heart scans now available!
A $49 heart scan can help you understand your risk for heart attack. If you’re over 40, have high blood pressure, are diabetic, obese, have high or borderline cholesterol, are a smoker, and/or have a family history of heart disease – then you are likely to benefit from a heart scan. To ask questions or schedule, call 765-776-8000.
Are you at risk for lung cancer?
Low-dose CT lung screenings now available. Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States. A low-dose CT lung screening shows the lung tissue in high diagnostic detail to help you understand your risk for lung cancer. USPSTF guidelines and Medicare eligibility criteria recommend annual lung screenings for individuals ages 55 to 77 with a tobacco smoking history of at least 30 pack years.
Advanced MRI Technology
The Imaging Center includes a new MRI machine that features a wider, 70-centimeter opening—the widest MRI opening in Kokomo—for better patient comfort during the exam and also touts a “silent scan package,” providing for a much quieter experience than the hospital’s prior model. The new MRI machine allows patients to be scanned head first or feet first, and is located in a “caring suite.” Inside the suite, patients have access to an iPad and a view of a ceiling-mounted monitor to watch videos, calming video themes or listen to music.
