Innovative Technology

 

At Newport Diagnostic Center (NDC) in Orange County, California, innovation is a key component of our practice philosophy. We were the first outpatient imaging center on the Pacific Coast to offer whole-body imaging studies with positron emission tomography (PET) and the first in Orange County, CA to offer a dedicated PET/CT system, which was recently upgraded to include 64-slice CT. NDC is currently the only outpatient imaging center in Orange County offering functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and fiber tracking with the GE Signa HDx 3.0 Tesla MRI.
