Hannibal Regional Radiology offering new imaging services
HANNIBAL, Mo. — Hannibal Regional Radiology recently received two new imaging services: Liver Elastography Ultrasound and prostate-specific membrane antigen PET scan. Both of these new services will allow for earlier detection of disease.
Liver elastography ultrasound is a noninvasive ultrasound examination that can diagnosis, stage and monitor liver disease by measuring the stiffness of liver tissue. It reduces the need for costly and painful liver biopsies and allows for faster clinical decisions and advanced treatment planning. It also may be used as a follow-up tool for patients under treatment to monitor the progression, stabilization or regression of their liver disease.
Prostate cancer is one of the most common cancers in men. The new prostate-specific membrane antigen PET imaging is a test that will significantly improve how prostate cancer is detected and treated. This new imaging technique locates metastatic cancer lesions for earlier detection.
To see if you would be a good candidate for either of these exams, talk to your primary care provider or contact Hannibal Regional Medical Group at 573-629-3500.
