No Dose & Low Dose Testing


Heart disease is the number one cause of death among Americans each year, making early detection essential. At Ryan Ranch Center for Advanced Diagnostic Imaging at Ryan Ranch, you will find technology you won't find anywhere else-technology that reduces the amount of radiation in at CT scan by 80% while providing the most advanced imaging on the Central Coast. This technology places patient safety at the forefront without compromising detection.

When determining what tests should be performed, the physicians at the Ryan Ranch Center evaluate each patient on an individual basis to determine what will be the most effective and safest tests. In addition to low-dose CT technology, the Ryan Ranch facility also houses state-or-the-art MRI technology that does not need a contrast agent, making it safe or people with kidney problems. This approach ensures that patients are receiving the best, safest care possible.
