Doctors use imaging tests to diagnose conditions and monitor how well treatments are working. They also use a process called interventional radiology to deliver treatments such as angioplasty, radiofrequency ablation and placement of stents.
At El Camino Health, our expert imaging team uses advanced imaging equipment and technology that ranks us among the nation’s best hospitals. For example, our Lurie Women's Imaging Center uses leading-edge 3D digital mammography and computer-aided detection (CAD) that give radiologists even better tools for finding breast abnormalities.
