Aria Health has high-tech imaging services

Aria Health, the largest health-care pro­vider in North­east Phil­adelphia and Lower Bucks County, has be­gun of­fer­ing out­pa­tient PET/CT ima­ging ser­vices five days a week at its newly con­struc­ted out­pa­tient ima­ging cen­ter at 2451 Grant Ave.

Staffed by one of the largest ra­di­ology groups in the re­gion, the cen­ter is provid­ing pa­tients with lead­ing-edge tech­no­logy through ac­cess to GE Health­care’s Dis­cov­ery PET/CT 690. Two “quiet rooms,” de­signed to provide com­fort be­fore test­ing, and a spa­cious wait­ing area also en­hance the pa­tient ex­per­i­ence.

The Dis­cov­ery PET/CT 690 of­fers tech­no­logy that will en­able Aria’s ra­di­ology team to de­tect dis­ease at an earli­er stage than con­ven­tion­al mod­al­it­ies. It also will en­able the team to provide faster pa­tient ex­ams, mak­ing an of­ten stress­ful situ­ation for pa­tients that much short­er.

The cen­ter, which is ac­cept­ing pa­tient ap­point­ments, also of­fers CAT scans and so­di­um bone scans.
