The Imaging Department at PVH provides a wide variety of diagnostic testing including:
All of the Radiologic Technologists have graduated from an accredited Medical Radiography program, are licensed by the state of Maine, and are registered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT).
PVH has converted to using digital radiography (DR) and PACS (Picture Archival and Communication System). This change has allowed the department to go completely digital. Instead of taking films that have to be transported to providers and stored, we now can send the images immediately for interpretation and stored digitally. The new DR technology allows for faster exams and a reduced radiation dose.Our CT scanner also offers faster scans with state-of-the-art dose reduction software. Patients receive the highest quality CT scans at a significantly reduced radiation dose.
Patients are afforded the utmost privacy and comfort during the tests. Appointments for all imaging modalities are made by calling PVH at (207) 794-7118. Almost all exams require a referral from your physician, so if you feel you need imaging procedures, please contact your physician.
