RadiologyPatients of all ages benefit from our ultrasound, CAT scans (CT), x-rays, MRI, Echocardiograms and bone density (DEXA) exams.
We offer computerized imaging which stores digital records of your studies, easily accessed by a medical provider, regardless of their location. If your doctor has access to the internet, we can make your latest radiology exam available for their use.
Additionally our innovative partnerships with regional radiological service providers save you both time and money.

CT ScanSyringa Hospital & Clinics (SHC) is pleased to announce the acquisition and installation of a new state-of-the-art 64 row, 128 slice Toshiba CT scanner. Using Toshiba's newest technology (AIDR 3D and VELO CT software), the upgrade will result in the lowest radiation dose capabilities in northern Idaho and, at a minimum, matches the low dose CT systems in the Spokane area. This new system reduces the radiation dose to the patient by more than 50%, pediatric scans by up to 80%, and decreases time to perform the exam by 65% or more from the current scanner at SHC. The 128 slice CT creates a radiation dose protocol specific to the patient and exam, helping to eliminate unnecessary exposure.
