Dr. Leslie Tutt discusses Graves Gilbert Clinic’s Full Service Radiology Department

Graves Gilbert has a full-service Radiology
department. We offer conventional x-rays, cat scans, MRI,
ultrasound, nuclear medicine testing, mammography, bone density. We have state-of-the-art equipment in our
Nashville Road facility we have purchased a larger bore MRI and if any of our patients
have had an MRI before they know that they will go into sort of a tunnel to have their
images made and that can be claustrophobic for some patients and they may need medication,
but what we’ve found with the wide bore is patients are able to tolerate it much better. We’ve also gone a step further at our Nashville
Road facility. We have clouds in the sky on the ceiling and
it really is a soothing effect when the patient lays down that’s the first thing they see
and that has helped as well. We do have the state-of-the-art imaging software
and coils for the MRI. We have state-of-the-art CT scanner of course
the breast tomosynthesis is cutting-edge and all of our other equipment we make sure that
it’s up to date and we’re offering the latest available. We want the patients to feel comfortable that
they know what they’re getting and not be surprised that, “oh you didn’t tell me this”
and I think our staff is very good at making sure that doesn’t happen.
