Imaging Overview

Our Imaging Department staff take pride in delivering care professionally and efficiently. They extend personal support to their patients and ensure that test results are provided to physicians in a timely manner.

The Imaging Department is one of Boulder Community's largest and most rapidly expanding clinical areas. We have 12 board-certified radiologists and 95 technologists on staff who perform more than 200,000 procedures a year.

Our radiologists use cutting-edge technologies to diagnose and treat medical problems. Boulder Community Hospital is the only hospital in Boulder County to offer Digital Mammography to its patients.  Digital Mammography has been proven to find more cancers in women with dense breast tissue.  We also offer three 1.5 Tesla MRI scanners and one open MRI.  In addition Boulder Community offers a state of the art 64 slice CT scanner. 

Other specialized equipment and imaging services include Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scanners, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) breast biopsy, an interventional suite, stereotactic breast biopsy, nuclear medicine and ultrasound.


Boulder Community Hospital employs a full time medical physicist who regulates and monitors all radiation doses to ensure that every patient receives the least amount of radiation required during exams and procedures.  We participate in accreditation programs through the American College of Radiology. These programs require that Boulder Community Hospital meets nationally recognized standards for personnel, radiation dose, and image quality.
