Sibley Hospital’s Imaging Department

Sibley Hospital’s Imaging Department includes the Sullivan Center for Breast Health, Sibley Center for Sleep Disorders and Sibley Non-invasive Vascular Laboratory. All of these areas provide a full array of state-of-the-art diagnostic and interventional services in a comfortable community hospital setting.

The Sibley Outpatient Imaging Center opened in March 2011 and provides CT, MRI, ultrasound and general radiography, in addition to those already provided in the main hospital. The Outpatient Imaging Center, located on the ground floor of the Sibley Medical Building, offers a convenient entrance directly from the new parking garage.

Many areas of the Imaging Services department have received accreditation by the American College of Radiology or the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission. These accreditations help to assure patients that they are receiving high quality care within the department. Sibley is the only hospital in Washington, D.C., accredited in CT, MRI, mammography, vascular sonography and sleep medicine.

Additionally, the Sullivan Center for Breast Health has been designated as a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the ACR and is also accredited by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers.

Other highlights of the department include:

  • PET/CT: Sibley operated the first PET/CT scanner in the Washington area, and our facility is registered with the National Oncologic PET Registry.
  • Multislice CT: Sibley operates two multislice CT scanners in its main department including a 64 slice spiral unit. Both units are accredited by the American College of Radiology and perform the latest in diagnostic and screening examinations, including coronary CT angiography and virtual colonoscopy. Sibley is a member of the Image Gently program to help reduce radiation exposure to patients.
  • MRI: The Morris and Gwendolyn Cafritz Foundation MRI Suite features 2 high field MRI scanners capable of the latest imaging techniques, including breast MRI and interventional procedures. The MRI group is accredited by the American College of Radiology.
  • Interventional Radiology: This group offers minimally invasive procedures including varicose vein treatments, vertebroplasty and uterine artery embolism.

Images at Sibley Hospital are all digital, stored electronically and read by our board-certified radiologists on special high-resolution monitors. These same images are available online for review by your physician (staff physicians only) throughout the hospital or in their offices.
