Long Beach Medical Center is pleased to offer a variety of diagnostic services and therapeutic treatments using a wide range of imaging technology and modalities.
Commonly referred to as a 320 slice CT, the Aquilon One is a computed technologic device that utilizes 320 ultra-high resolution detector rows (0.5 mm in width) to image an entire organ in a single gantry rotation. This technology allows physicians to detect and treat life-threatening diseases at its earliest stages.
When it comes to breast cancer, cancer, and heart and vascular conditions, early detection is key. Using the latest equipment, we offer a wide range of diagnostics:
Each MemorialCare hospital provides the broadest range of routine and advanced diagnostic outpatient imaging services, utilizing state-of-the-art equipment in patient friendly environments. In addition, services include image-guided biopsy capabilities, a wide range of interventional radiology procedures, fluoroscopy and therapeutic treatments including radioisotope therapies. Each hospital-based imaging department is staffed with board-certified radiologists with modality sub-specialization, providing the highest level of care.
We offer radiological excellence in imaging services, with a team of physicians and technicians who have specialized training and licensure in numerous radiological procedures.
Digital imaging systems, such as Picture Archival Communications System (PACS) and DR Systems, allows radiology images and reports to be examined digitally as soon as they are captured. With this technology, images and reports are available to physicians for viewing right away, either here in the hospital or in the physician's own office. The result for our patients is a timely turnaround of high-quality images, eliminating the need for time-consuming and cumbersome films.

Varicose veins are dilated veins that have lost their valve effectiveness and become elongated, bulged and thickened. Veins carry blood from the capillaries to the heart. In the leg, this means the blood has to flow upward, against gravity. These veins have one-way valves to prevent the blood from flowing backwards.
Osteoporosis is a process that develops within the bones and makes them fragile and more likely to fracture. Anyone can develop osteoporosis, but it is common in older women. According to studies, 25 percent of men and 50 percent of women over the age of 50 will break a bone due to osteoporosis.
Uterine fibroids are benign, non-cancerous, growths — within or on the muscular walls of the uterus or womb. As many as 20 to 40 percent of women over the age of 35 have fibroids. They can be caused by a combination of genetic, hormonal or environmental factors; however the true cause is unknown.

Cardiac nuclear study is a painless exam that uses radioactive tracers to capture images of the heart and vascular system. Images reveal how the blood flows to the heart and how the heart pumps while under stress and at rest.
Arterial duplex scan is a painless exam that uses high-frequency sound waves (ultrasound) to capture internal images of the major arteries in the arms, legs and neck. A special jelly is placed on the area being examined while a wand-like device called a transducer is passed lightly over the skin above the artery.
Ultrasound technology uses high-frequency sound waves to produce exceptionally high-quality moving images of the fetus, heart, abdominal organs and other soft tissues of the body. It can also be used for scanning other organs such as the liver, kidneys, uterus and ovaries.
