Aria Health Opens New PET/CT Imaging Center in
New facility provides leading-edge technology with shorter scan times.
Beginning Tuesday, September 6, Aria Health – the largest health care provider in Northeast Philadelphia and Lower Bucks County – will offer outpatient PET/CT imaging services five days per week at its newly constructed outpatient imaging center located at 2451 Grant Avenue in Northeast Philadelphia.
Staffed by one of the largest radiology groups in the region, the center will provide patients with leading-edge technology through access to GE Healthcare’s Discovery PET/CT 690. Two “quiet rooms” designed to provide comfort before testing and a spacious waiting area also enhance the patient experience.
The Discovery PET/CT 690 combines the power of two technologies: computed tomography (CT) and positron emission tomography (PET) to enhance patient care. This technology will enable Aria’s Radiology team to detect disease at an earlier stage than conventional modalities and provide faster patient exams, making an often stressful situation for patients that much shorter.
The center, which is now accepting patient appointments, will also offer CAT scans and sodium bone scans.
