Open 1.5 Tesla MRI

El Portal Imaging Center is pleased that we have a high field open MRI because it provides the best of both worlds. The high field magnet ensures faster and more accurate reads. Plus, its open configuration provides superior patient comfort by minimizing any claustrophobic feelings. MRI is an important tool for viewing soft tissues within the body.

PET Imaging

Our state-of-the-art Hybrid PET-CT 64 Slice allows our radiologists to capture detailed images of how the organs and tissues are actually functioning and is particularly useful in detection of certain cancers as well as heart and brain disorders.

CT Coronary Angiography

Computerized tomographic angiography is a radiological test that combines the technology of a highly accurate 64-slice CT scan with that of traditional angiography to create detailed 3D images of the blood vessels in the heart. Finally there is an option to more invasive traditional angiograms.

Digital Mammography

Our advanced digital mammography equipment allows for faster image acquisition (less than a minute), offering you a shorter exam time. The digital scans also provide an improved contrast between dense and non-dense breast tissue, and we're able to manipulate the breast images for a more accurate detection of breast cancer.

Nuclear Medicine

These procedures are noninvasive and usually painless tests used to visualize the structure and functioning of an organ, tissue, bone, or system of the body.

4-D Sonography

Soon-to-be parents will be able to see their baby in motion for the first time through 4-D sonography, and can also share this memorable experience with family members and friends through El Portal Imaging's take-home DVD option.

X-Ray

An X-Ray is a painless test that is often used to detect fractures and dislocations in the skeletal system. X-rays are also instrumental in detecting some diseases in soft tissue. A chest X-ray is used to identify lung diseases like lung cancer, pneumonia or pulmonary edema (swelling or fluid in the lungs), and an abdominal X-ray can detect blockages of the intestines, among other things.

Ultrasound

An ultrasound is a diagnostic imaging technique used to visualize muscles and internal organs, their size, structures and possible pathologies. It is commonly used during pregnancy to check on the status of the fetus, and to check on a man's prostate or bladder health or view the health of a woman's uterus and ovaries.
