NEW: Evening Mammogram Appointment Hours Now Available at Women's Imaging Center
Mammograms play a central role in the early detection of breast cancer. It is vital for women to take control of their breast health but we also realize that many women have busy schedules with work and family life, and often don't have the time to schedule their exam in the middle of the workday.
To increase convenience for our community, our Women's Imaging Center has added evening mammogram appointment time to accomodate busy schedules.
Appointment times: Monday through Thursday, 4:30-8:00pm. Call 618-222-4639 to schedule your exam today. (Regular appointment hours are 7am-4:30pm, Monday-Friday and Saturday 7am-3pm).
Latest imaging technology delivers faster, higher quality test results
St. Elizabeth’s Hospital uses the newest high-quality diagnostic and interventional imaging services to assist in the diagnosis of disease or injury.
St. Elizabeth’s Picture Archival Communication System (PACS) integrates all the diagnostic images and related reports created at its hospital and satellite facilities in O’Fallon, and stores them in one large database that is accessible to any of our doctors, whenever and wherever it is needed. This means that our doctors have a more complete picture of a patient’s history, to aid in their diagnosis and treatment.
While PACS makes patients’ diagnostic images easily accessible, new imaging technology installed at St. Elizabeth’s Hospital is dramatically sharpening imaging quality, as well as improving the speed and comfort of the testing process itself. Thanks to our new MRI scanner, our radiologists can obtain full body images in ultra-high resolution…quickly and quietly.Assisted by the most experienced group in the metro east, Radiology Consultants of Mid-America, we acquire and interpret more than 120,000 images each year. St. Elizabeth’s is equipped to address a full-spectrum of imaging needs for both inpatients and outpatients, including:
- Biopsies using CT scans, ultrasound and fluoroscopic procedures
- Computed tomography (CT Scans), including coronary artery calcification scoring
