Tests & Screenings
At Doctors Hospital of Manteca, we provide a wide range of advanced imaging services. It's our mission to provide convenient, comfortable and highly accurate care to the Manteca community, and to communicate seamlessly with your referring physician.
We offer the following diagnostic services in our expanded facility:
Uses low-energy X-rays to scan the lower back, hip or forearm. This helps to diagnose osteoporosis, a disease that weakens bones and makes them more brittle and susceptible to fracture.
Combines X-rays and computer scans to create images of the body. The result is a detailed image that can show problems with soft tissues, organs and bones. This unit has the ability to produce CTA studies (angiography) of the aorta and pulmonary arteries, and the multi-detector accelerates patient throughput. Additionally, this CT system has an independent workstation for 3-D multi-format imaging.
Uses X-rays to visualize abnormalities in the breast tissue. This equipment is used to detect breast cancer as early as possible, which generally improves the effectiveness of treatment.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
Provides detailed pictures of the inside of the body using strong magnets and radio waves. This unit is notable for its ability to provide greater spatial resolution of images.
Stereotactic breast biopsy
A breast cancer imaging option that produces stereo images — images of the same area from different angles. This helps to determine the exact location for the biopsy where a sample of breast tissue is then removed with a needle.
Our ultrasound technology uses sound waves to produced 3D/4D images of the body's interior. (Expectant parents will delight in seeing detailed pictures of their baby in utero produced by this system.)
Uses a small amount of radiation to create images of bones and organs.
