What We Can Do For You:

MRI

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a form of imaging modality used to obtain clinically useful diagnostic information. MRI produces images of anatomy without the use of radiation required with other imaging modalities, such as x-ray. MRI is noninvasive with no known side or after effects. 

Community Hospital-Fairfax placed an MRI onsite in 2019. The Echelon Oval is designed around the shape of the human body, allowing for an optimal patient experience with outstanding comfort, space and efficiency. The 74cm oval bore is the widest 1.5T MR system available.

MRIs are offered 5 days a week Monday through Friday.

Why should I have my imaging exam done at an accredited facility?

When you see the gold seals of accreditation prominently displayed in our imaging facility, you can be sure that you are in a facility that meets standards for imaging quality and safety. Look for the ACR Gold Seals of Accreditation.

To achieve the ACR Gold Standard of Accreditation, our facility's personnel qualifications, equipment requirements, quality assurance, and quality control procedures have gone through a rigorous review process and have met specific qualifications. It's important for patients to know that every aspect of the ACR accreditation process is overseen by board-certified, expert radiologists and medical physicists in advanced diagnostic imaging.

What does ACR accreditation mean?

  • Our facility has voluntarily gone through a vigorous review process to ensure that we meet nationally-accepted standards of care.
  • Our personnel are well qualified, through education and certification, to perform mdical imaging, interpret your images, and administer your radiation therapy treatments.
  • Our equipment is appropriate for the test or treatment you will receive, and our facility meets or exceeds quality assurance and safety guidelines.

What does the gold seal mean?

When you see the ACR gold seal, you can rest assured that your prescribed imaging test will be done at a facility that has met the highest level of imaging quality and radiation safety. The facility and its personnel have gone through a comprehensive review to earn accreditation status by the American College of Radiology (ACR), the largest and oldest imaging accrediting body in the U.S. and a professional organization of 34,000 physicians.

Low Dose CT

The Low Dose CT is a low dose radiation CT that can help detect lung cancer early. If detected early, lung cancer can often be treated successfully.

For smokers with Medicare, this screening is free but there are eligibility requirements.

For non-Medicare smokers or for Medicare smokers that do not meet the eligibility requirements, it is recommended that you visit with your provider about whether your screening might be covered and if this screening is right for you.
