Advanced technology and expert radiologists make Rutland Regional Medical Center one of New England’s most advanced diagnostic imaging centers.
Our superior ability to diagnose, monitor and treat illnesses and injuries has, in fact, led to us becoming one of just five U.S. hospitals – and the only rural hospital – to be named a GE Healthcare “Community Hospital Showcase”. As such, clinicians, radiologists,and hospital administrators from across the nation visit Rutland Regional to not just view and learn about our diagnostic imaging equipment, but to understand how we use it to improve the quality and efficiency of patient care.
Diagnostic Services at Rutland Regional
The first hospital in Vermont accredited by the American College of Radiology (ACR), all of Rutland Regional’s advanced imaging services are ACR accredited. Our state-of-the-art inpatient and outpatient diagnostic imaging services include:
- Interventional Radiography
- Bone Density Testing
- CT Scan including Coronary CT Angiography (CCTA)
- Digital Fluoroscopy
- Nuclear Medicine
- PET/CT Scan
A team of dedicated diagnostic imaging nurses ensure patients receive care that’s as high-touch as it is high-tech. Overseen by a clinical nurse manager, these nurses greet each patient and perform all needed prep work, as well as manage any necessary medications and monitoring – a process proven to improve patient safety and efficiency, along with the patient’s overall experience.
Mammography and Bone Density Testing
The diagnostic imaging staff supports the hospital’s Breast Care Program, which offers advanced imaging as a key component of its comprehensive breast health and cancer care. Imaging services include diagnostic mammogram, breast ultrasound, breast MRI and minimally invasive biopsy. Each patient receives individualized support from our Certified Breast Patient Care Navigator.
With convenience in mind, Rutland Regional makes it easy to schedule a bone density test at the same time as a mammogram. Both tests are available five days per week and are performed during one appointment by the same technician.
Digital Image Transfer
To make accessing, examining and sharing images as quick and effective as possible, all scans are created, saved and transferred via a state-of-the-art, digital teleradiology system.
