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. In addition, we offer interventional radiology which benefits patients with a minimally invasive approach to care with better outcomes and reduced stress on the patient.
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 since it produces such clear imagery in a short amount of time.
Interventional radiology (IR) is the use of image guidance to perform minimally invasive procedures for diagnostics and treatments. Long Beach Medical Center offers leading interventional radiology procedures and treatments within many specialties.
Interventional radiologists use imaging techniques such as X-rays, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans, fluoroscopy, computed tomography (CT) scans and ultrasounds to navigate small instruments, such as catheters and needles, through blood vessels and organs to treat a variety of diseases. Interventional radiology diagnoses and treats patients using the least invasive techniques available to minimize risk to patients and improve health outcomes. Most IR patients are sent home the same day and normal activity is resumed within a week or two.
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.

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.
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.

X-ray is the oldest and most frequently used form of medical imaging used to diagnose conditions in the chest, bone, sinuses, skull, or spine. It is the fastest and easiest way for a physician to view and assess broken bones and can also be used to diagnose and monitor the progression of degenerative diseases.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a diagnostic test that uses a magnetic field and pulses of radio wave energy to provide pictures of organs and structures inside the body. MRI provides information that, in many cases, cannot be obtained from an X–ray, ultrasound or CT scan.
Computed tomography angiography is an exam that uses a contrast (dye) that is placed into the blood stream so that vessels in the body can be seen when an internal image is taken. With Computed Tomography (CT) scanning you will lie on a CT examination table as it moves through the scanner.

Interventional radiology (IR) is the use of radiology, image guidance, to perform minimally invasive procedures for diagnostics and treatments. Doctors can now do remarkable things from within the blood vessels of your body.
Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE) is a safe and effective alternative to surgery. A non-surgical, uterus sparing treatment, UFE blocks the blood supply to the fibroids causing them to shrink.
