2-D & 3-D Digital Mammography

According to the American Cancer Society, one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime, making it the most commonly diagnosed cancer among women in the U.S. However, when detected in its earliest stages and appropriately treated, the average five-year breast cancer survival rate is 98%

Salem Regional Medical Center now offers the newest generation of 3-D mammography available between Pittsburgh and Cleveland for improving breast cancer detection at its earliest stage.

3-D mammography complements standard 2-D digital mammography, and can find up to 40% more invasive cancers than a traditional mammogram alone.

Benefits of 3-D mammography include:

  • Greater image detail to detect cancer in its earliest stages, especially in women with dense breasts and fibrocystic breast disease, where tumors are more difficult to find.
  • Enables radiologists to distinguish harmless structures from tumors, resulting in fewer false positive results and fewer "call backs," which occur when a mammogram identifies something suspicious and additional imaging or a biopsy is recommended.
  • Less discomfort due to less breast compression.
  • Uses 30% less radiation than traditional mammograms.

►Two Locations

2-D and 3-D Digital Mammograms can be scheduled at:

SRMC's Main Campus
1995 East State Street in Salem

Firestone Farms TownCenter
116 Carriage Drive in Columbiana

PET/CT

PET/CT exams combine images from PET (Positron Emission Tomography) Scans, which detect changes in cell function, with detailed pictures of the body's anatomy from CT Scans, to aid in the early detection and treatment of cancer. This safe and painless exam can benefit patients by:

  • Detecting cancer at its earliest stage
  • Determining tumor extent and staging for therapy
  • Defining the extent of disease before surgery
  • Reducing invasive procedures and diagnostic tests
  • Monitoring therapy

COMING IN 2019: The Latest Advancements In Medical Imaging

SRMC will install a new 3-D PET/CT Scanner with the fastest and highest quality, leading-edge technology to benefit area patients facing cancer, heart disease, dementia, stroke or other conditions of the brain and nervous system.

Nuclear Medicine

Nuclear Medicine is a safe and painless imaging procedure that uses a special camera and very small amounts of radioactive material to create images of the body and document the body's function. (Note: These special radioactive materials are introduced into the body by injection, swallowing or inhalation.)

Nuclear Medicine can assist your physician in diagnosing a variety of diseases and is commonly used for:

  • Detecting cancer at its earliest stage
  • Analyzing kidneys
  • Examining blood flow and the heart's function
  • Scanning the lungs for respiratory and blood flow
  • Identifying function of the gallbladder and stomach
  • Evaluating bones for fractures, infections, arthritis or tumors
  • Determining the presence or spread of cancer
  • Identifying bleeding into the bowel
  • Locating the presence of infection
  • Measuring thyroid function and nodules

DEXA Bone Density

DEXA stands for Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiometry. It is the most commonly used test for measuring bone mineral density and one of the most accurate ways to diagnose osteoporosis, which is responsible for 1.5 million fractures in the U.S. each year. DEXA scanning has proven to be the most accurate method of measuring bone density and uses the least amount of radiation.

►Two DEXA Locations

DEXA Bone Density scans can be scheduled at:

SRMC's Main Campus
1995 East State Street in Salem

Firestone Farms TownCenter
116 Carriage Drive in Columbiana

To Schedule:

Call SRMC's Appointment Desk at 330-332-7300.

Ultrasound

Ultrasound Imaging uses sound waves to produce images of the body's organs, tissues and vessels without using radiation. Because the images are captured in real-time, they can show the structure and movement of the body's internal organs, as well as blood flowing through blood vessels.

Ultrasound testing can help physicians diagnose diseases or abnormalities by imaging the heart and blood vessels, organs in the abdomen and pelvis, the breast, thyroid or a pregnant woman's unborn child. It is also used to guide minimally-invasive procedures or biopsies.

►Two Locations

Ultrasound Imaging can be scheduled at:

SRMC's Main Campus
1995 East State Street in Salem

Firestone Farms TownCenter
116 Carriage Drive in Columbiana

To Schedule:

Call SRMC's Appointment Desk at 330-332-7300.

Digital X-Ray

An x-ray is a fast and painless exam that uses a small amount of radiation to visualize the body's internal structures. While x-rays are most often used to image the bones for fractures and other abnormalities, they are also effective in detecting pneumonia in the lungs or foreign objects in the body.

Salem Regional Medical Center uses digital x-ray equipment and a state-of-the-art computerized system to obtain, view and store images electronically. This "filmless" technology benefits patients with:

  • Better exam quality
  • Less waiting time for test results
  • Faster diagnosis and treatment

Virtual CT Colonoscopy

Salem Regional Medical Center is the only hospital in the Mahoning Valley to offer 3-D Virtual CT Colonoscopy for colon cancer diagnosis and screening.

This state-of-the-art procedure is an alternative to a traditional colonoscopy, which many people prefer to avoid because of the discomfort of the rigorous colon preparation, the need for anesthesia or their inability to take time off from work.

Benefits of Virtual CT Colonoscopy include:

  • Better exam quality
  • Alternative to conventional colonoscopy
  • Easier colon preparation
  • Less invasive
  • No anesthesia needed
  • Convenient scheduling
  • Low radiation dose

Low-Dose CT Lung Cancer Screening

Lung cancer is the most common cause of cancer death in the U.S., and occurs particularly in men and women with long-term smoking histories. Recent studies have shown that the screening of current and former heavy smokers reduced their risk of dying from lung cancer by 20%.

A low-cost, low-dose CT lung cancer screening program is offered at Salem Regional Medical Center to detect lung cancer before it has spread. The lung cancer screening is modeled after mammography, which has been highly successful in detecting breast cancer.

Note: All patients will need to obtain a referral for the low-dose CT lung screening from their health care provider.
