Technology with a Personal Touch
At Florida Hospital Zephyrhills, our medical imaging technology is an important tool that gives your doctor the ability to quickly detect medical conditions inside the body and helps determine the best plan of treatment. Our digital imaging technology gives us the ability to transmit your test results electronically, so that your doctor receives your results quickly and you get treatment faster.
Our radiologists* and technologists are specifically trained to use the most advanced imaging and digital x-ray equipment available. This equipment provides better results and more precise procedures. At Florida Hospital Zephyrhills, we can assess the risk of osteoporosis in less than one minute, measure liver stiffness in patients with chronic liver disease without a needle, reduce acoustic noise during an MRI exam without compromising image quality, and detect the earliest signs of breast cancer when it is the most treatable.

Additional patient friendly features include a mood lighting application which allows patients to set the mood for their exam through custom lighting to create a more relaxed environment. And, unlike traditional MRI scanners, Florida Hospital Zephyrhills is the first in the area to deliver an MRI equipped with Quiet Suite to reduce noise during an exam, resulting in a more comfortable experience for patients.
