Jefferson Outpatient Imaging Opens New East Norriton Location

09/23/11

Jefferson Outpatient Imaging and the Department of Radiology at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital recently opened an imaging center in East Norriton, PA, for the convenience of patients in the Montgomery County area.

Jefferson Outpatient Imaging offers state of the art diagnostic imaging services.  The wide scope of comprehensive services available at this location include open bore magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), positron emission/computed tomography (PET/CT), computed tomography (CT), ultrasound, mammography, DEXA scans, arthrography, and general x-ray.

All imaging studies at the East Norriton location are interpreted by board-certified, subspecialty radiologists from Thomas Jefferson University Hospital.  The Jefferson Department of Radiology is recognized nationally for its clinical expertise and excellence in educational programs.

 “We are excited to be able to offer patients in the Montgomery County region state of the art imaging technology and the clinical expertise that Jefferson radiologists are known for providing,” says Vijay Rao, M.D. , chair of the Department of Radiology at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital.  “Our goal is to provide the highest quality care for our patients by offering unsurpassed customer service, superior image quality and diagnostic interpretations by doctors who are academic experts in subspecialized aspects of radiology.”

The Imaging Center’s new 1.5T high field open bore MRI offers superior image quality and a larger opening than standard MRIs.  This allows the imaging experience to be more comfortable for claustrophobic and/or larger-size patients.

At the new East Norriton location, the Jefferson difference means:

  • Board-certified, fellowship-trained subspecialty radiologists interpret all studies.
  • Board-certified technologists provide quality patient care.
  • State of the art imaging equipment accredited by the American College of Radiology.
  • Expedited appointment scheduling provided to all patients and referring physicians.

The new office location is 1 West Germantown Pike, East Norriton, PA, 19401.  Interested patients are asked to call 610-277-3202 to schedule an appointment.
