University of Maryland Shore Regional Health has some of the most advanced medical imaging equipment available to diagnose and treat cancer. Imaging services include:

  • Digital mammography - produces high quality digital images of breast tissue that can be stored and transmitted electronically, as well as enhanced by physicians for more accurate diagnosis
  • Image-guided breast biopsy - ultrasound images or a special mammography machine guide the physician to the location of an abnormal growth too small to be felt by hand
  • Ultrasound - advanced scanning technology that allows physicians to evaluate blood flow and view images of internal organs as they function
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) - creates incredibly clear and precise images for diagnosis, without the use of radiation
  • Digital diagnostic radiography - diagnostic x-rays taken using digital equipment, which allows for immediate viewing of the image and faster exam
  • Computerized tomography (CT) - multidetector and 16-Slice CT scanners use x-rays and computer technology to create detailed cross-sectional images of any part of the body, helping to plan radiation treatment
  • Nuclear medicine - a non-invasive procedure that places small amounts of radioactive material in the body, allowing physicians to accurately diagnose and treat cancer
  • Interventional radiology (IR) - minimally invasive cancer treatment procedures performed with the help of ultrasound and radiography images, often performed on an outpatient basis
  • PET/CT - produces detailed images that assist physicians in diagnosing and staging tumors with incredible accuracy, as well as developing more precise treatment plans

Diagnostic imaging and laboratory testing is available throughout the five-county region serviced by UM Shore Regional Health in Cambridge, Centreville, Denton, Easton and Queenstown.
