Featuring the New 64-Slice CT Scanner

Broward Health Imperial Point offers a complete line of radiological services, such as our new 64-Slice CT Scanner. We provide the most advanced techniques in diagnostic and therapeutic radiology.

Broward Health Imperial Point’s experienced board certified radiologists, certified technologists, critical care nurses and skilled administrative staff are dedicated to personalized service and high-quality imaging and interpretation. We work closely with your physician to assure timely and convenient scheduling, imaging, treatment and follow-up.

Broward Health Imperial Point's nuclear medicine, MRI, CT, mammography and ultrasound departments are fully accredited by the American College of Radiology. This prestigious achievement is an example of our commitment to providing the highest quality standard in the community. 

Diagnostic Radiography
Plain film radiography - commonly known as x-ray - is safe, noninvasive, and quickly performed. The average exam takes no more than 10-15 minutes. For most plain film exams, no special preparation is required.

Angiography / Interventional Radiology
An angiogram is performed to get a much closer look at arteries or veins than is possible from other means. A long thin tube, or catheter, is guided through the artery to the area to be studied by using a contrast dye and x-rays. Broward Health Imperial Point offers a comprehensive array of interventional procedures including arteriograms, stents, stent grafts, vertebroplasty, uterine fibroid embolization, central lines, drainages, biopsies and angioplasty.

Computerized Tomography
CT scan is a non-invasive technique in which rotating x-ray beams produce thin cross-sectional images of the body. At Broward Health Imperial Point, a licensed radiologic technologist performs the procedure within minutes. 64-Slice CT Scanner provides precise, three dimensional imaging of most structures. We offer heart, calcium scoring, virtual colonoscopy, and other CT screening services.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Magnetic Resonance Angiography
MRI and MRA have greatly improved the sensitivity and accuracy of diagnostic imaging through the use of strong magnetic fields, radiofrequency transducers and computer-assisted imaging. The advantage of MRI is that the patient is not exposed to x-rays.

Comprehensive Breast Imaging and Breast Services
Broward Health Imperial Point offers the highest quality, low-dose mammograms available, provided by ACR certified mammography technologists in our FDA IMQSA-Certified facility. A mammogram can detect breast cancer years before it can be found by a physical examination.

Comprehensive Breast Services include routine screening and diagnostic mammograms, breast ultrasound, which also includes mammography and ultrasound guided breast biopsies. State-of-the-art equipment includes our new digital mammography system and breast MRI.

Nuclear Medicine
Broward Health Imperial Point’s high-tech Gamma Camera performs all aspects of diagnostic and therapeutic nuclear medicine procedures. Diagnostic procedures include scintigraphic imaging of the brain, bones, thyroid, heart, lungs and kidneys.

Procedures can be scheduled by calling Central Scheduling 954-759-7500. Procedures are performed Monday - Thursday, 8:30am - 5:00pm, and Friday 9:00am - 5:00pm.

Ultrasound
ACR Accredited since 1998 Ultrasound is a quick and painless exam that can be performed without radiation. Diagnostic studies include abdominal, gynecologic, vascular, prostate, thyroid, testicular and musculoskeletal, to name a few. Ultrasound also is used to guide interventional procedures such as biopsies, paracentesis, thoracentesis, needle localizations and breast procedures.

Interventional Neuroradiology
Interventional Neuroradiology is an exciting, minimally invasive approach in the treatment of vascular diseases of the central nervous system. Conditions that, in the past, would have required surgery such as aneurysms, vascular malformations, and tumors of the brain, head and neck can be considered for treatment by using an endovascular approach. Interventional techniques such as thrombolysis are also useful in the management of patients with acute ischemic stroke.

Extended Outpatient Operating Hours:
The Department of Radiology has extended operating hours in its MRI and CT Divisions.
