Over the years, the medical imaging field has experienced tremendous growth.

Whether you need a routine mammogram or an emergency x-ray, Garden Park Medical Center’s caring team of healthcare professionals along with our digitally-advanced equipment is available to provide you the best diagnostic and treatment services.
We offer a full range of imaging services that will help your physician quickly and accurately gain a clear picture of your medical needs. In addition, all of our images are electronically saved in a PAC system which provides clearer images for physicians and allows them to easily transmit images to other specialists if needed.
Mammography is a specific type of imaging that uses a low-dose x-ray system for examination of the breast. Mammography plays a central role in the early detection of breast cancers because it can show changes in the breast up to two years before you might actually feel the lump in your breast.
Garden Park Medical Center’s full field digital mammography uses computers and specially designed digital detectors to produce an image that can be displayed on a high resolution computer monitor and transmitted and stored just like computer files. The digital image allows the radiologist to manipulate the image to adjust the brightness, change contrast, and zoom in for close ups of specific areas of interest.
In conjunction with the digital mammography unit, Garden Park Medical Center also offers the Computer-Aided Detection. CAD provides a “second read” of the mammogram by the computer. This assists the radiologist in making an accurate diagnosis.
