Nuclear medicine

Nuclear Medicine scanning is a diagnostic procedure that uses radioactive isotopes–or radiopharmaceuticals–that are absorbed by certain body tissues. A “camera”–which is really a radioisotope detector–is used to map the distribution of the radiopharmaceutical. The resulting images provide information about organ function and physiology. We provides Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT), an advanced nuclear medicine procedure that uses a computer to process the data and produce cross-sectional images of the area of interest.

SPECT exams are used to diagnose a wide variety of conditions. Common applications of SPECT include cardiac perfusion and function, brain perfusion and function, liver, spleen and bone. This technology is offered on a mobile basis or as a fixed-site g. An Alliance partnership provides healthcare facilities with an opportunity to expand their diagnostic capabilities without the expense and commitment associated with purchasing the equipment.

Our CT systems allow facilities to receive shared-service on a regularly scheduled basis or on a daily basis through our fixed-site development program . Alliance also rents mobile CT systems by the week or month to hospitals that are upgrading or replacing their in-house CT units.

These rental systems may also be used to relieve temporary scheduling backlogs at very busy facilities. All CT rentals include original equipment manufacturer service and maintenance. Other available services include technologists, transportation, training and marketing.

CT began to be used widely in the 1970′s and is now a common diagnostic test in most U.S. hospitals. CT is an imaging technique in which pictures are generated from a series of finely spaced, narrow-beam x-rays measured at different angles around a given body part. CT compares the intensity of each beam exiting the patient with the beam’s original intensity; and then uses a computer to synthesize these measurements into a visual reconstruction of the object.

The body part is displayed as a series of slices, or tomographs, which effectively allows radiologists to view the body part in three dimensions. If the same body part is imaged with conventional radiographs, it is represented in two dimensions; and the area of interest may be obscured by overlying objects.

Who we are?

We are an industry leader in shared-medical imaging services. As one of the first providers of positron emission tomography (PET) services, Alliance’s 19 years of diagnostic imaging experience is making the power of PET technology a reality in communities across the nation. Alliance’s full-service PET options include technologists, over reading, PET radiopharmaceuticals, billing support and education materials for physicians and patients, as well as equipment maintenance and upgrades. Our experience, flexibility and innovative approach to healthcare solutions builds a strong foundation for successful PET programs.

PET is a nuclear medicine procedure that produces pictures of the body’s biological functions. This is important because functional change often predates structural change in tissues, such as tissue metabolism and physiologic functions.

Since precursors to disease are biochemical in nature and initially affect function, PET can save time and costs in diagnosis and treatment of many significant disease conditions in the fields of oncology, cardiology and neurology. Utilizing PET improves patient care since it helps physicians select more effective therapies, which ultimately helps save lives.

What is Magnetic Resonance Imaging?

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is an advanced diagnostic procedure that makes detailed images of internal bodily structures without the use of X-rays or any other form of radiation. MR images are produced through the use of a large and powerful magnet, radiowaves and a computer. This technology enables physicians to detect diseases or abnormalities in early stages of development. Early detection is the key to curing many diseases. Modern MRI systems can produce cross-sectional images less than a millimeter in thickness. Such resolution yields very fine detail of internal structures such as the spine, joints, brain and other vital organs. Developed in the late 1970s, Magnetic Resonance Imaging has become a common diagnostic test across the U.S.

MRI program offers hospitals a cost-effective way to compliment their current imaging services. Available on a regularly scheduled basis, this valuable diagnostic tool meets the increasing patient demand for Open-MRI services.

These units are also available for full-time rental at facilities that require more access to systems. As with allsystems, service includes labor, transportation, insurance and system maintenance.

Open-Sided MRI systems are designed to be more comfortable for patients who are too large or claustrophobic for conventional MRI systems. These systems have the advantage of a large scanning bore and increased patient access. Their open architecture makes them ideal for imaging sedated patients and children. The wide magnet bore allows full range of motion joint studies and facilitates administration of anesthesia.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging

Alliance is the industry leader in furnishing mid-field and high-field strength magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) systems with actively shielded magnets to hospitals and healthcare facilities. From startups to facility expansions , Alliance has the flexibility and depth of resources to implement a dependable and cost-effective “turn-key” MRI program.

Alliance owns and operates nearly 350 MRI systems from major manufacturers. We maintain a modern fleet of MRI systems that are equipped with the manufacturer’s latest software upgrades, coils and laser cameras. Our equipment is maintained under Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) service contracts. It is our pledge to provide the best technology available. To ensure optimum image quality, each system undergoes a daily system calibration and scheduled clinical image checks.

mr1

Our dependability speaks for itself. With an uptime average of 97%, we reliably deliver the highest quality MRI services to the patients and referring physicians in each medical community we serve.

Alliance mobile systems provide service to healthcare facilities on a shared, part-time basis. Alliance fixed-sites are developed for hospitals who would like a full-time service but wish to avoid the financial risk of ownership. A special fleet of mobile systems provides “interim” service to facilities that need full-time systems on either a long-term or short-term basis. All Alliance MRI systems include maintenance by the Original Equipment Manufacturers. Full service includes technologists, transportation, insurance, training and marketing.
