Imaging

UP Health System - Marquette is one of a handful of hospitals in the nation to have some of the most advanced imaging technologies under one roof. Just as important as the technologies is the expertise of the radiologists who interpret the images and provide specialized treatments. It's very uncommon to have so many advanced technologies available at a single hospital.

Two MRI scanners make it possible to accommodate patients on evenings, weekends, and in situations when same-day imaging may save the patient an extra trip or an overnight stay in Marquette. MRI capabilities include brain, spinal cord, cardiac and musculoskeletal imaging. UP Health System - Marquette is the only hospital in the Upper Peninsula to offer multi-dimensional breast imaging with on-site interpretation and MRI-guided breast biopsy.

An on-site PET/CT scanner is used for cancer, cardiac and neurological imaging. Unlike other imaging methods, the PET/CT scanner reveals how cells and structures function, rather than how they look. PET/CT has changed the course of treatment for many cancer patients throughout the region.
 
The most current CT scanning technology at UP Health System - Marquette includes two CT scanners with dual source imaging. Providing capabilities in advanced vascular imaging and intervention; cardiac imaging; interventional imaging and treatment; and trauma imaging, these scanners are changing the way patients receive care. The most current CT software, along with the expertise of the physicians, provides patients with significant advantages in both diagnostics and treatment.
 
All of the supporting technologies including ultrasound, special procedures labs, mammography, and x-ray, in the hands of our highly skilled radiology department staff, can provide virtually any kind of imaging that patients may need.
