St. Mary provided the following imaging services:

Non-invasive prostrate MRI provides accurate images, without discomfort, for diagnosing and planning treatment of prostate cancer. Breast MRI helps evaluate cases that are difficult to assess with conventional mammography or ultrasound. 
  • CT Scans (Computerized Axial Tomography) - A CT scan uses a computer to combine a series of x-rays to produce a 3-D image of internal organs or structures. Our helical CT scanner is fast and accurate. Our wide-bore CT performs specialized studies and can accomodate larger patients. Our 64-slice VCT produces images in great detail for diagnosing heart disease, stroke or trauma.
  • Cardiac Imaging  and Calcium Scoring

  • Bring you insurance card. Bring it each visit, even if you have been here recently. This provides us with more accurate billing information.
  • Bring your driver’s license or another "picture" form of ID.
