Aspen Valley Hospital’s Diagnostic Imaging services are at the heart of our patients’ coordinated care. Our imaging specialists work with your physician as an important member of your healthcare team—using the latest technology to rule out a major illness or receive a swift diagnosis to get you started on the right care path.
We offer a full line of medical imaging services including CT, MRI and X-rays to help diagnose a wide range of conditions.
With a cutting-edge imaging interface, our team at Aspen Valley Hospital is able to access the expertise of over 90 offsite radiology specialists in Denver. These physicians are members of Radiology Imaging Associates (RIA), an alliance of radiologists in Colorado who are fellowship-trained in their field of specialty for additional certification. All images are read by specialists best suited to read the scan and provide a diagnosis in a matter of minutes.
A computed tomography (CT) scan is an imaging method that uses X-rays to create cross-sectional pictures of the body.
We provide incredible image quality on our 64-Slice GE for studies such as drain placement, biopsies and bone marrow biopsies, giving precise measurements and accurate location of the area of interest.
We also provide specialized studies, such as:
A magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan is an imaging test that uses powerful magnets and radio waves to create pictures of the body. It does not use radiation (X-rays).
Our top-of-the-line 1.5 GE Optima 450W provides exceptional image quality for all MRI studies.
Specialized studies include:
X-rays are a form of electromagnetic radiation, just like visible light. In a healthcare setting, a machine sends individual X-ray particles through the body. A computer or special film is used to record the images that are created.
Diagnostic X-ray encompasses many different types of exams such as bone imaging, scoliosis imaging, chest X-rays, abdomen plain films, fluoroscopy and studies using contrast agents.
An ultrasound is a safe and painless test using sound waves to get an image of different areas inside your body.
We provide adult and pediatric echo studies, diagnostic breast studies and more.
If you have dense breast tissue you may benefit from having a 3D mammogram. Also known as digital breast tomosynthesis, 3D mammography creates more detailed images of your breast.
Our ABUS system is specialized for these studies.
Learn more about our commitment to breast health.
In addition to 3D mammography, we also have the latest non-surgical technology for performing biopsies, including an upright stereotactic machine and a vaccuum assist machine so you don’t have to travel far from home for expert care during a stressful time.
Fluoroscopy is an imaging technique that uses X-rays to obtain real-time moving images of the interior of an object. In its primary application of medical imaging, a fluoroscope allows a physician to see the internal structure and function of a patient so that the pumping action of the heart or the motion of swallowing, for example, can be watched.
We provide all types of fluoroscopy imaging (live imaging performed by the radiologist). We work hand-in-hand with our speech pathologists to offer modified barium swallows.
Bone density scans (densitometry) is a scan that measures your bone thickness. Bone densitometry is also called a dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) scan. DXA scans are normally done on your hip, spine or forearm (lower arm).
Nuclear radiologists are doctors who use tiny amounts of radiation to find and treat disease. Nuclear medicine procedures include:
Request a connection to the LifeImage Network so you can securely share imaging exams.
If you have an order for an imaging study from your physician, our scheduling department would be happy to help you. All imaging studies do require an order from your provider.
The Midvalley Imaging Center is Aspen Valley Hospital’s option for high-quality, lower-cost healthcare in a convenient outpatient setting. The center is located in Basalt, just off of Highway 82 near the Willits commercial district and neighborhood. Serving patients from the Roaring Fork Valley and beyond since 1998, we have the same high standards and accreditation levels of area hospitals.
The Midvalley Imaging Center is currently undergoing renovations and is anticipated to reopen in Summer 2020. Please check back for more information!
