Thank you for visiting Peninsula Imaging online. Peninsula Imaging is a full-service Outpatient Imaging Center located in Salisbury, MD, committed to the highest quality patient care employing the best diagnostic technologies available.

Accurate, thorough and rapid imaging is essential to our mission and believe it is critical for maintaining health and wellness for the patients we serve. With this visionary approach, we have equipped our new facility with the most current imaging equipment and technology available on the market today.

Outside of this technology, the heart of our quality is our staff. Our 15 highly skilled, community-based and board certified Radiologists, hold the key to providing patients with the most effective treatment recommendations.





 

Virtual Colonoscopy

Virtual Colonoscopy is a quick non-invasive option to a traditional colonoscopy.

No sedation needed, means.....no recovery time for you!

Using state-of-the-art CT scanning equipment, we produce the highest quality 3D images using low dose CT. This aids in early detection of polyps.

New Diagnostic innovations in MRI at Peninsula Imaging (Please share this with your physicians!)

At Peninsula Imaging, we pride ourselves in bringing state-of-the-art imaging techniques to the shore. The most recent additions to our MRI department are non-contrast enhanced angiography, whole body spectroscopy, and Susceptibility Weighted Imaging (SWI). Non-contrast angiography allows radiologists to see arteries and veins without the risks of having a needle stick or MRI contrast injection. Multivoxel Chemical Shift Imaging (CSI) spectroscopy examines the specific metabolite/chemical makeup of the tissue or the area being sampled anywhere in the body in a shorter amount of time when compared to singlevoxel spectroscopy. Lastly, SWI (susceptibility weighted imaging) produces images that are highly sensitive to blood and arterial venous malformations (AVM). Small bleeds due to sheering affect in the brain as a result of trauma or concussion can now be easily detected. With SWI, arterial venous malformations can be seen in their fullest extent which possibly could have been misdiagnosed using other techniques.


Peninsula Imaging awarded Accreditation in Breast MRI

Peninsula Imaging has been awarded a three-year term of accreditation in breast magnetic resonance imaging as the result of a recent review by the American College of Radiology (ACR). MRI of the breast offers valuable information about many breast conditions that may not be obtained by other imaging modalities, such as mammography or ultrasound.

The ACR gold seal of accreditation represents the highest level of image quality and patient safety. It is awarded only to facilities meeting ACR Practice Guidelines and Technical Standards after a peer-review evaluation by board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field. Image quality, personnel qualifications, adequacy of facility equipment, quality control procedures, and quality assurance programs are assessed. The findings are reported to the ACR Committee on Accreditation, which subsequently provides the practice with a comprehensive report they can use for continuous practice improvement.
