IN THE NEWS
NORTHPOINTE UPDATE:

April 14, 2017 On April 14th, Inland Imaging will begin a construction and remodeling project at our Northpointe Imaging Center. We’ll be expanding our waiting room to provide patients with a more comfortable and
convenient experience. In order to accomplish that we’ll be closing our Northpointe Ultrasound department. Ultrasound exams will still be available on the Northside at our Holy Family Imaging Center.

This expansion will also allow us to upgrade our current X-ray technology and replace it with Digital Radiography equipment (DR) that will provide our patients with faster exams, lower radiation doses, and better image quality.

Finally, once the waiting room expansion is complete, we’ll be adding another 3T (Tesla) MRI Scanner at Northpointe. The 3T MRI provides the highest quality imaging available in the area and features a wide-bore for patient comfort and fit.

The expansion also means we will be able to have Radiologists on-site and available every day.

Please call Dave Durgan, Marketing Development, Customer Service Specialist, at 509.363.7742, if you have any questions.

KOMEN EASTERN WASHINGTON BECOMES EVERY WOMAN CAN

March 31, 2017 Susan G. Komen of Eastern Washington ceased operations at the end of March, 2017 to become Every Woman Can.

Inland Imaging is proud to support Every Woman Can’s mission to save lives and motivate women to get an annual mammogram beginning at the age of 40.

EWC inspires, educates and advocates for breast cancer awareness throughout the Inland Northwest and raises funds to grant into local community organizations who provide increased breast health education, facilitation of patient navigation and direct care and support to survivors.

Every Woman Can’s first annual 5k Pink Ribbon Run was held on April 23, 2017. The race both started and finished in Riverfront Park.

THE NEW 3T MRI SCANNER PROVIDES A FULL RANGE OF MRI SCANNING CAPABILITIES

October 16, 2016: The technology of the new 3T MRI scanner addresses everything from routine medical exams to clinical research.
Simply put, its bigger, better and faster than its predecessors. Which makes your MRI visit a faster, more comfortable, and much less-stressful experience.
One Smooth Machine.
The new 3T MRI scanner makes comfort a priority, adjusting for each individual’s body and needs. It provides much more detailed images, scanning all the major systems of the body, and can detect problems earlier than ever before. 
The 3T MRI Scanner has a fully adjustable bed that can quietly accommodate everyone
from small children to large adults. The 70cm Open Bore and short system design provides a comfortable MRI scanning experience for a range of patient sizes and conditions: children, tall, obese, critically ill, claustrophobic, those with respiratory problems, pain or mobility issues. 
“This scanner is also much faster than our previous scanners, which is helpful for decreasing motion artifact and for patient comfort.  The scanner has a larger bore and can accommodate larger patients, which means we have to turn away fewer patients due to weight restrictions.”  Dr. John Bell, Inland Imaging radiologist.
You deserve the latest technology when it comes to your health.
With a clinical capacity that ranges from orthopedics to cardiology, pediatrics, oncology and reproductive health; the 3T MRI scanner opens a new world in imaging technology for our patients.
It provides exceptional high resolution images more quickly and efficiently than ever before. This includes anatomy-specific optimization of scans for things like early detection of prostate cancer, to visualize arteries and veins, comprehensive scans of the upper abdomen, joint imaging including the spine, as well as cardio and ventricular function scans. 
For detection of cancers, it features a collection of sequences, protocols, and evaluation tools that guide through the detailed assessment of a variety of oncological conditions. It can even acquire whole body coverage in a single, continuous move.
Don’t forget to ask for your favorite color.
The new MRI scanner even provides custom mood light color options for soothing light while the scan is occurring.
They were even earth-conscious when they designed the new 3T MRI scanner.
Made by Siemens Healthineers USA, the 3T MRI scanner boasts a reduced footprint with energy-efficient lighting and power systems. This includes new “green” Eco-Chiller technology that automatically adapts its cooling requirements and decreases energy consumption by up to 50%.
