New PET/CT Scanner at First Avenue

Imaging Healthcare Specialists is pleased to announce the opening of a new state-of-art PET/CT scanner at our San Diego facility, located at 2466 First Avenue in Hillcrest. We will be taking patients at the new scanner beginning February 21, 2011.  With the opening of this new scanner, IHS now has two state-of-the-art PET/CT scanners, and will continue to also offer PET/CT services at our other location in Encinitas at 1200 Garden View Rd, Encinitas, CA 92024.

Our new GE Discovery ST PET/CT scanner offers patients technology that combines the strength of two well-established imaging modalities into one single imaging device.  By imaging with the two modalities in a single scan, disease can be both identified and localized, potentially resulting in an earlier diagnosis and more accurate staging.

Expert PET/CT professional interpretations are provided by Radiology Medial Group physicians Mark Schechter MD, David Buckley MD, John Johnson MD, Erick Lizerbram MD and Greg Anderson MD.

We look forward to serving you at our new location.
