Dedicated to meeting the diverse health needs of the Flint, Michigan, community and improving access to state-of-the-art treatment, Hurley Medical Center has built a comprehensive diagnostic and interventional radiology department. Its diagnostic radiology services make use of such innovative technology as the county's first 64-slice Siemens computed tomography (CT) scanner as well as the first Optima MR450w magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machine to arrive at an area hospital.
Meanwhile, the hospital's interventional radiology department offers patients minimally invasive alternatives to such surgeries as kidney stone removal, blood clot dissolution, and biopsy. The hospital employs one of the world's 300 interventional neuroradiologists, thus granting patients access to such innovative procedures as nucleoplasty and carotid artery stenting. The hospital's staff also includes the area's only pediatric radiologists, who, alongside expert colleagues in oncology, surgery, and other departments, perform a combined total of more than 125,000 procedures each year.
