Imaging Services at BCH

Overview

Our professional staff takes pride in delivering quality, personalized care to our patients. We utilize an advanced reporting and integration system to ensure timely delivery of test results to ordering clinicians. Our 12 board-certified radiologists use the lastest technologies to diagnose and treat a wide variety of medical problems.

Foothills Hospital has the only breast center north of Denver that is fully accredited by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC). We also offer a top-of-the-line 3 Tesla MRI scanner with a large internal opening and a state-of-the-art 128 slice CT scanner with low dose radiation capabilities.

Other specialized equipment and imaging services include magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) breast biopsy/localization, an interventional suite, mammographic stereotactic breast biopsy, nuclear medicine and progressive ultrasound capabilities.

Safety

Boulder Community Health employs a full time medical physicist who regulates and monitors all radiation doses to ensure that every patient receives the least amount of radiation required during exams and procedures.  We participate in accreditation programs through the American College of Radiology. These programs require that Boulder Community Health Imaging meets nationally recognized standards for personnel, radiation dose and image quality.

There has been an increased awareness of lowering dose to pediatric patients without compromising quality. The fact is, children are more sensitive to radiation. At Boulder Community Health, we “Image Gently” as defined by the Alliance for Radiation Safety in Pediatric Imaging. More helpful information for parents is available on the Image Gently website by clicking here.

Adult patients may also have concerns regarding radiation dose. Just as we “Image Gently” for children, we “Image Wisely” for adults. To learn more about benefits/risks, safety and radiation dose for adult patients, visit the Image Wisely website by clicking here.
