PET/CT Scanning Services:
All three hospital locations offer PET/CT scanning services.
Two MRI scanners make it possible to accommodate patients on evenings, weekends, and in situations when same-day imaging may save the patient an extra trip or an overnight stay in Marquette. MRI capabilities include brain, spinal cord, cardiac and musculoskeletal imaging. UP Health System offers multi-dimensional breast imaging with onsite interpretation and MRI-guided breast biopsy.
An onsite PET/CT scanner is used for cancer, cardiac and neurological imaging. Unlike other imaging methods, the PET/CT scanner reveals how cells and structures function, rather than how they look. PET/CT has changed the course of treatment for many cancer patients throughout the region.
CT scanners with dual-source imaging provide capabilities in advanced vascular imaging and intervention; cardiac imaging; interventional imaging and treatment; and trauma imaging. These scanners are changing the way patients receive care.

When you see a physician or receive services in a provider-based clinic, you are technically being treated in an outpatient department of the hospital rather than the physician’s office.
