Phillips Hospital Listed in Best Doctors in Orlando Magazine state-of-the-art Orlando Health Imaging Centers facility within the Orlando Health Medical Pavilion — Spring Lake. Not only is the Orlando Health Imaging Center at Spring Lake equipped with the latest technology for highly precise CTs, MRIs and other diagnostic exams, but the facility offers a relaxing spa-like environment where patients are treated as guests. Moreover, patients do not pay a facility fee, which is usually charged when receiving imaging services in hospital settings. Did you know that you can specify to your doctor where you would like to receive your diagnostic imaging? Because you want an accurate diagnosis of what’s happening inside your body, the decision where to have your imaging done can be as important as the doctor you choose. Choosing to have your diagnostic exams done at a facility accredited by the American College of Radiology (ACR) is a key way you can select a high-quality imaging clinic. All six locations of Orlando Health Imaging Centers are ACR-accredited for MRI, CT, mammography, ultrasound and position emission tomography (PET) exams. ACR accreditation is awarded only after a rigorous review process of personnel, equipment performance, quality control and quality of clinical images. In addition, Orlando Health Imaging Centers offer advanced technology that delivers more precise imaging and quicker scanning, and results in a better patient experience. For example, the Spring Lake center is equipped with a 3T MRI, which has twice the strength and enhanced imaging quality of a standard 1.5T MRI. This increased image clarity is particularly beneficial for conditions involving the brain, spine and musculoskeletal system. For patients who may be anxious in a traditional MRI, the facility’s large bore 3T MRI has shorter scan times and more room and comfort. The 128-slice CT machine at Spring Lake provides detailed and speedy imaging to help diagnose conditions such as cancer, heart disease, infectious disease, appendicitis and musculoskeletal disorders. As it scans, the CT machine divides the body into “slices” like a cake and takes detailed pictures of each one. The more slices, the more precision in the resulting image. The 128-slice CT system at Spring Lake also completes the scanning in about half the time as a traditional 64-slice exam. Orlando Health Imaging Center at Spring Lake is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Endocrinology José Mandry, M.D. Endocrine Associates of Florida — Ocoee 1510 Citrus Medical Court, Ocoee • 407-480-4830 José Mandry, M.D., is a diplomate of the American Board of Internal Medicine, 1989, with a subspecialty of endocrinology and metabolism since 1991.
