New Orleans East Hospital (NOEH) Imaging Services offers access to the most advanced imaging technology, including a 64-slice CT and MRI. Our high-quality images interpreted by expert radiologists offer the best chance for accurate diagnosis and treatment planning. The following services are offered at NOEH:
Bone mineral scan evaluates bone mineral density it is an important part of patient care and can aid in diagnosis and treatment of osteoporosis.
Computed Tomography (CT) Scan
Our 64-slice scanner is one of the most technologically advanced scanners available. The multi-slice images allow radiologists and the CT technologists to gain more precise views of the head, chest, abdomen, pelvis and extremities for quicker and more accurate diagnoses.
X-ray is the oldest and most frequently used form of medical imagining. X-rays can produce diagnostic images of the human body on film or digitally that allow doctors to view and assess broken bones or other injuries.
Interventional Radiology is used to diagnose and treat patients using the least invasive techniques currently available in order to minimize risk to the patient and improve health outcomes. These procedures have less risk, less pain and less recovery time compared to open surgery.
Mammography is a specific type of imaging that uses a low-dose x-ray system to examine breasts. A mammography exam, called a mammogram, is used to aid in the early detection and diagnosis of breast diseases in women.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
The MRI uses magnets, radio waves, and computers for highly detailed images of internal organs, muscles, nerves and bones. The technology is often used to diagnose orthopedic injuries, tumors, infections in the brain, spine or joints, and strokes in early stages.
Nuclear medicine involves the use of small amounts of radioactive materials (or tracers) to help diagnose and treat a variety of diseases. Nuclear medicine determines the cause of the medical problem based on the function of the organ, tissue or bone.
Ultrasound services are available for sonographic needs, including breast, abdominal, pelvic, and gynecological exams.
General Hours: Monday-Friday from 7:30 AM to 4:00 PM. Emergency and General X-rays 24 hours a day.
