Danville Diagnostic Imaging Center - Convenient Location

DDIC logoSince 1991, Danville Diagnostic Imaging Center (DDIC) has been providing high-quality services to the community and has recently upgraded equipment. This includes an enhanced Computed Tomography (CT) scanner and new wide-bore MRI unit.

The new CT scanner, an upgrade from the 4-slice CT scanner, allows for higher quality imaging and clearer samples for a more accurate diagnosis. Since the equipment scans the images faster, a patient’s examination time is reduced. The CT scan offers a clearer view of scanned anatomy and reveals more details than normal x-ray exams.

Breast MRI ACR SealThe new wide-bore MRI unit will also provide faster and more efficient images, allowing for a quick, accurate diagnosis. Without using x-rays, the MRI machine uses a large magnet, radio waves and a computer to produce imaging of all portions of the anatomy. With this new technology, an MRI scan averages between 15 and 30 minutes for most procedures. Other advantages of the unit include a much larger bore (opening) so claustrophobia typically is not an issue as well as accommodation of patients weighing up to 500 pounds. A patient can listen to their iPod, favorite CD or satellite radio station choice while their scan is performed.

DDIC services provide:

  • Wide-Bore (70cm) MRI
  • CT
  • Fluoroscopy
  • Digital Mammography
  • Sonography
  • Radiology
  • Non-invasive Vascular Testing
