Radiology and Imaging

As part of the MaineHealth family, PBMC benefits from increased purchasing power for the newest technologies. We have focused significant resources on the expansion of imaging services. We expanded day, evening and weekend hours for patient convenience in the areas of mammography, CT scan, MRI and ultrasound. We invested in state-of-the-art breast health technology with the installation of digital mammography with 3D capabilities and have installed wide bore MRI technology as well as the installation of a nuclear SPECT technology. 

Imaging Clinical Decision Support

As of January 1, 2020 CMS requires that physicians and advanced practice providers consult a clinical decision support system when ordering advanced imaging procedures in all care settings. This requirement applies to studies performed for Medicare patients at Franklin Community Health Network, Maine Medical Center, Pen Bay Medical Center and Southern Maine Health Care. Critical access hospitals are exempt from this requirement. MaineHealth has implemented the CareSelect imaging clinical decision support tool within Epic, our electronic health record system. Providers who are associated with MaineHealth but do not have access to Epic may access to the CareSelect imaging clinical decision support tool online.

  • One foot of spacious headroom: you’ll no longer feel like you’re nose-to-nose with the top of the magnet.
  • Due to its short design, most exams can be done with your head outside of the system.
