An array of different coils for musculoskeletal MRIs includes ankles, knees, shoulders and wrists.
16-Slice CT-Scan—This new scanner takes 16 pictures, or slices, of the body per revolution, up to four times the number taken by other scanners, giving our extremely physicians extremely detailed images to help then identify diseases and conditions not visible with conventional CT units.
PET-CT (positron emission tomography - computed tomography) is used for a wide range of medical diagnoses, including cancer detection and oncology, Alzheimer’s Disease detection and a variety of surgery planning. Valley View’s PET-CT is available for both inpatient and outpatient screenings and was the first permanent PET-CT in western Mohave County.
