CT Services- Harris Campus

Catskill Regional Medical Center features a state-of-the-art computed tomography (CT) system at its main campus in Harris, New York. The LightSpeed® VCT 64-configured system from GE Healthcare is one of the most technologically advanced diagnostic tools available for helping physicians reach confident diagnoses to provide the best patient care.

The 64-slice CT system delivers high quality images of the brain, heart, musculoskeletal system, spine and vascular system. Additionally, the new system provides high-tech 3D angiography, which allows the radiologist to image various organs and vascular areas using only an IV injection, avoiding more invasive procedures. This advanced CT technology incorporates improved resolution and lowers the radiation dose by 30 to 40 percent over conventional CT systems.

Furthermore, the system is specifically designed to accommodate pediatric patients using low-dose techniques. The CT system is located near the Emergency Department, so critical cases can be diagnosed quickly.

CRMC radiologists are available around the clock, so they can get results to guide treating physicians within 30 minutes. A CT-certified technologist is on site 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and two specially-trained registered nurses staff the facility during scheduled hours.

CT Services- Grover M. Hermann Hospital Division

The LightSpeed® 16-slice CT system from GE Healthcare gives western Sullivan County and its surrounding communities access to nearby CT imaging services.

The 16-slice CT system delivers high quality images of the brain, heart, musculoskeletal system, spine and vascular system. The images allow physicians to see inside the body without using surgery. CT exams are used when people are ill or injured, or when a physician suspects a medical problem that is not easily detected from a conventional physical examination.

Catskill Regional Medical Center features a wide-bore GE Healthcare Optima MR450W 1.5T magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) system.
The advanced MRI system offers many benefits to our patients, including faster imaging results (which reduces exam times), enhanced image quality, allowing accurate and timely diagnosis, and a wide-bore opening, making the MRI system more comfortable and convenient for larger individuals, children and those prone to claustrophobia.

With MRI, a physician can see what is wrong in many parts of the body, including the head, neck, spine, abdomen, pelvis, joints, prostate, blood vessels and musculoskeletal regions of the body.

When your doctor requests an MRI, you can have it done at the most convenient center. Since it’s your choice, why not schedule your MRI where you get weekend and evening hours, quick results and the most detailed image available in the area? CRMC’s MRI offers breakthrough diagnostic imaging technology and your MRI will be read by a Board-certified physician. At CRMC, you can make your appointment and have your MRI all in the same day. Your doctor may even receive your results before you get home.

Contact the MRI office at 845-794-3300, ext. 2216. The MRI facility is located at Harris campus, on the first floor of the Ambulatory Services Building.

Diagnostic Imaging Services

Monday – Saturday: 8:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m.

Catskill Regional Medical Center’s Diagnostic Imaging Department has many different ways to look at muscles and bones. Its fluoroscopy unit has state-of-the-art equipment for diagnosing problems in the digestive tract. The facility uses low-dose technology to avoid radiation damage in growing children.

X-rays are taken using modern computer radiography (CR), which produces high-quality images with a low radiation dose. Instead of being printed on film as in the past, x-ray images are immediately downloaded into our picture archive communication system (PACS). A Board-certified radiologist can read the CR images online as soon as the x-rays are taken.

Register at the Radiology Department
All scheduled patients can go directly to the Radiology Department where they will be registered within minutes by the Radiology Registrar.

Catskill Regional Medical Center offers digital mammography services to the women of our community at the Grover M. Hermann Hospital location.

Digital mammography incorporates revolutionary imaging technology providing incredibly sharp images and lower radiation exposure assisting in the early diagnosis of breast cancer. We are accredited by the American College of Radiology (ACR) and our technologists are certified by the American Registrar of Technologists (ARRT). In additional to our highly trained staff,  the crystal clear images are expertly read by our on-site radiologist.  Grover M. Hermann Hospital provides screening mammography services.  A prescription is required.

Digital mammography is like having a conventional mammogram, though women may notice shorter exam times and a reduction in call backs due to the increase clarity of the images taken. Digital mammography takes less than half the time of conventional mammography since there’s no waiting for film to develop.  Digital images are easily stored and transferred electronically, eliminating the risk that original films might be misfiled or lost in transit. The radiologist can magnify the images, increase or decrease the contrast and invert the black and white views to make the images easier to read. These improve the likelihood of diagnosing cancer early.

Catskill Regional is committed to the fight against breast cancer.  Women, age 40 and over, should have a screening mammogram every year, according to the American Cancer Society. Early detection of breast cancer is vital in the successful treatment of breast cancer.

To schedule a mammogram or for additional information, please call 845-794-3300 ext. 2225. Our scheduling office is open Monday – Friday 7:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. and Saturday 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Bone Densitometry

Bone density testing, also known as bone densitometry, is a test used to diagnose osteoporosis, a disease which weakens bones making them brittle and more likely to break.

X-rays are used to measure the amount of calcium and important minerals within a bone, with testing most common for the spine, hip and forearm. The higher your bone mineral content, the denser and stronger your bones are.

Osteoporosis is more common in older women, but men can also develop the condition. Your doctor may recommend a bone density test, regardless of your sex or age, if you have any of the following risk factors: bone fractures, long-term use of steroids, an organ transplant, significant lost height of 1.6″ or more, or a drop in hormone levels.

To schedule an appointment or for additional information,
please call 845-794-3300 ext. 2225.
