GMAC Imaging Department

Glendale Adventist Medical Center’s imaging department takes pride in providing compassionate care and accurate information using the latest advances in technology. Certified technologists work around the clock to deliver vital information to physicians for prompt diagnosis and treatment.

Two multi-slice CT scanners provide patients with convenient, state-of-the-art imaging services. A multi-slice Siemens Volume Zoom CT scanner, located in the Emergency Department, provides immediate and accurate imaging in as little as 20 minutes. A second G.E. Lightspeed multi-slice CT scanner provides imaging services for scheduled procedures. This modern scanner creates optimal imaging for all routine studies and is also equipped with advance applications dedicated to the study of the heart and brain, including selected CT perfusion, coronary calcium scoring and CT angiography of the heart, brain and other parts of the body.

A separate station allows technologists to create 3D imaging and other special processes. Complementing the CT imaging are two 1.5 Tesla MRI units, providing speed, comfort and accurate imaging.

The neuro angiography bi-plane suite in the West Tower features modern flat panel technology designed to reduce radiation dose to patients and staff. This system has the ability to image two views, 90 degrees to each other, at the same time. With advanced imaging and software packages, physicians can perform 3-D rotational angiography as well as CT images of the brains. This is the first system of its kind in the San Fernando Valley.
