Adventist HealthCare Imaging recently began offering SPECT/CT, a new state-of-the-art, advanced imaging scan. SPECT/CT allows better diagnosis of medical conditions such as thyroid cancer, parathyroid tumors, fractures, infections and some brain disorders. Currently, Adventist HealthCare Imaging has the only SPECT/CT machine in Montgomery County, Maryland.


How it Works

  • SPECT/CT combines images from two types of scans — nuclear medicine and computed tomography (CT) — to form color images from multiple views. This type of scan produces higher-quality images that may reduce the need for additional imaging studies.
  • IMAGES show pictures of organs or specific areas and can indicate how the surrounding area is functioning.
  • PHYSICIANS can more accurately identify an abnormality and pinpoint its location.

Conditions Diagnosed

Adventist HealthCare Imaging offers quality imaging services such as mammography, MRI, ultrasound and SPECT/CT at several Montgomery County locations.
