Advanced Imaging at Baybrook
Advanced Imaging at Baybrook, located off Bay Road in Queesbury, just south of Adirondack Community College, is a joint partnership between Glens Falls Hospital and Adirondack Radiology Associates.
The 8,800-square-foot diagnostic imaging facility offers the latest in digital mammography, CT and MRI, and the region's first combined PET/CT scanner, a valuable new medical imaging tool for detecting various forms of cancer.
Full-field digital mammography helps doctors detect breast cancer in its earliest stages by providing sharper, more detailed images of your breast tissue.
Computerized tomography, or CT scan, is a special x-ray that scans an area one layer (slice) at a time. Using ionizing radiation to acquire cross sectional views of the body, a radiologist is able to look inside the body to see healthy and diseased tissues as well as some blood vessels. Advanced Imaging's CT scanner uses 16-slice technology for faster, clearer images.
A PET scan is a relatively recent medical imaging technology that uses small amounts of radioactivity that show how the body's organs and tissues function. Capable of diagnosing various cancer types and responses to treatment, PET is an extremely valuable and informative tool for the area physicians caring for cancer patients. Having these two technologies PET and CT together in one medical imaging device helps give Advanced Imaging radiologists greater accuracy in diagnosing medical conditions.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) uses radio frequency waves and a strong magnetic field to provide remarkably clear and detailed images of internal organs and tissues, proving very valuable for the diagnosis of cancer, heart and vascular disease and stroke. Because MRI can give such clear pictures of soft-tissue structures near and around bones, it is widely used to diagnose sports-related injuries, especially those affecting the joints. Advanced Imaging's high-field open MRI provides better imaging quality and is less claustrophobic for patients.
