GE’s 1.5 tesla Hi Speed Plus MRI with eight channel Excite technology
provides the finest MRI images quickly, accurately, and with extreme detail.
Our “short bore” technology also provides a more comfortable
environment that will make the exam less stressful.
Toshiba’s Aquilion 16 Helical CT is one of the most highly advanced
units available. Highly detailed images are acquired within seconds to
provide our patients the most comfortable experience in CT procedures.
Ultra fast scan times, speed, and accuracy. It’s all to give our
patients a more comfortable experience.
Our diagnostic x-ray units are pure digital, filmless x-ray technology.
That means that there is no film or heavy cassettes that take valuable
time to process. A chest x-ray is taken, and within several seconds, the
image is on a monitor, and the patient is finished.
Picture Archiving Communication Systems (PACS)
Kaweah Delta Imaging Center is a totally filmless facility. Physicians
can access any films taken at Kaweah Delta Imaging Center or at Kaweah
Delta Hospital for immediate electronic viewing online. Physicians at
SRCC can access any images, whether CT, MRI, or x-rays, at the hospital,
their offices, or their homes. The speed in which we provide the information
for physicians to provide treatment could not be faster.
Kaweah Delta Imaging Center is home to Visalia's first digital mammography
units. A digital mammogram uses a special detector to capture and convert
x-ray energy into digital data. The resulting digital images are immediately
available to the radiologist for diagnosis and are incredibly flexible.
Much like a digital photo, the images can be enhanced, manipulated, and
improved by the radiologist, so a digital mammogram can provide more information
for diagnosis. Digital technology also offers better visibility of the
entire breast. In addition to a more flexible image, the new digital system
works with ImageChecker, a computer-aided detection system. The software
analyzes the image and highlights areas on the mammogram that contain
features associated with cancer-much like a second set of eyes for the
radiologist reading the mammogram. Breast localizations, stereotactic
biopsies and biopsies utilizing ultrasound are also completed within this
Kaweah Delta Imaging Center provides a wide-range of ultrasound services
for obstetrical and general diagnostic patients, by licensed technologists

technologies including the state-of-the-art Toshiba Aplio system with
the latest in color flow and Doppler capabilities.
