Built on the experience of more than 1,000 customers, the MAGNETOM ESSENZA perfectly complements this 1.5T MRI scanner’s outstanding performance, making an already highly productive 1.5 Tesla machine even more efficient.
In combination with Edge technology, the system delivers a much sharper slice profile and makes possible the reconstruction of true 0.5 mm slices and offers unmatched spatial resolution in routine clinical protocols with excellent dose efficiency.
The ACUSON S3000™ Ultrasound System, HELX™ Evolution with Touch Control was designed with a dedicated focus on General Imaging and Interventional Radiology. It offers new levels of workflow efficiency, imaging performance and sustainability. The system is Siemens’ premium ultrasound system that offers unique solutions, such as elastography imaging, multi-modality review and contrast-enhanced ultrasound.
This unit is a high quality X-Ray breast imaging system for both screening and diagnostic examinations. Employing advanced imaging technology, it is capable of producing images in the two standard mammography sizes as well as magnified images.
Equipped with industry-leading imaging technology, unique dose management tools, and the latest clinical applications based on the innovative PURE® platform, it delivers excellent image quality at lowest dose.
This is an advanced analog X-ray machine which employs remarkable imaging power to provide an excellent image quality for multiple applications and minimize exposure times down to 1 ms, virtually eliminating any motion blurring.
From X-rays to MRIs, Angiography to Ultrasound, Spectra Health uses the latest methods and technology in diagnostic imaging and radiology.

Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE) is a new, minimally invasive procedure that helps shrink uterine fibroids without surgery.
KEY ADVANTAGES of UFE
- Preservation of the uterus
- Decrease in heavy menstrual bleeding
- Decrease in urinary dysfunction
- Virtually no blood loss
- Just an overnight stay at the hospital
- Rapid recovery and return to normal activity
- Much less risky compared to open surgery
- No scarring
- No stitches
TACE is a minimally invasive procedure that blocks the vessel that supply blood to the liver (hepatic artery) to treat liver cancer. This block or slow down the blood supply to the tumor cells leading to their eventual death. The material used to block the blood supply also delivers chemotherapy drugs to the tumor, further assisting in the killing of the cancer cells.
In PAVD, the arteries that carry blood to the arms and legs slowly become narrowed or blocked when plaque gradually forms inside the artery walls. When this happens, blood cannot get through to nourish organs and other tissues, causing damage to the tissues and eventually tissue death.
Percutaneous laser disc decompression is a minimally-invasive medical procedure that uses a laser beam to treat back and neck pain caused by a herniated disc. A herniated disc is like a balloon with a weak spot. Inflating it will cause a bulge (herniation). Pain results from the bulge pressing against nerves in the spinal column.
If you suffer from agonizing back or neck pain as a result of a herniated disc, PLDD offers quick relief from pain!
Who should consider PLDD?
This procedure is specifically designed for patients with disc problems accompanied by the following:
- Herniated lumbar discs confirmed by x-ray studies.
- Severe leg, arm, neck or lower back pain.
- Pain that has not responded to six weeks of conservative treatments- rest, meds or physical therapy.
A nerve block is an injection to decrease inflammation or “turn off” a pain signal along a specific distribution of nerve. At Spectra Health, this is done under imaging guidance (CT) to place the needle in the right location for maximum benefit.
Nerve block is needed by:
- People who suffer from either acute or chronic pain, often, such pain originates from the spine, but other areas commonly affected include the neck, buttocks, legs and arms.
- People with damaged nerve, as nerve blocks allows the nerve to heal itself from a state of constant irritation.
- Patients with undetermined cause or source of pain.
