Imaging services at Saint Vincent Hospital

  • Computed tomography scan (CT Scan). A series of images are taken from different angles to create cross-sectional images of your body.
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI scan). Doctors can examine your anatomy by using magnetic and radio waves. Saint Vincent Hospital operates the sole 3T MRI in Erie County, which enhances cancer, orthopaedic, and neurologic imaging versus typical MRIs.
  • General ultrasound. Also called a sonogram, our experts create images of organs, tissues, and other structures within your body using sound waves.
  • X-ray. Electromagnetic waves create pictures of your body. Often used to spot broken bones, pneumonia, or cancer.
  • Nuclear medicine. We use a small dose of radioactive material and special cameras to get a clear view inside your body.

Interventional Radiology now available at Saint Vincent Hospital in Erie, PA

With the help of these diagnostic tools, AHN specialists can successfully treat a wide variety of conditions through Interventional Radiology (IR).

IR provides a minimally invasive alternative to open or laparoscopic surgery. Our specialists are experienced at using various imaging techniques during minimally invasive procedures to treat conditions like venous disease, arterial disease, liver and kidney cancers, portal hypertension, uterine fibroids, and to deliver chemotherapy. This can lead to smaller scars, faster recovery times, and reduce the risk of complications.
