GRMC has a full range of the latest radiology tools, and an experienced team of professionals who specialize in analyzing and treating the conditions they reveal.
Our advanced technologies help ensure the early detection of malignancies and they enable our specialists to treat cancerous cells with pinpoint accuracy, causing minimal damage to healthy tissues. As a result, patients feel better, faster, so they can resume their normal, healthy lives sooner. These tools also provide our doctors with the data they need to analyze blood flow and brain activity, allowing them to catch the early stages of Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s disease, or the threat of a stroke.
“TrueBeam” linear accelerator: This device provides GRMC with the highest quality radiation therapy on Guam. The “TrueBeam” linear accelerator is able to target the treatment needed with pinpoint accuracy.
“Ysio” digital x-ray system: This technology provides enhanced x-ray clarity with no additional radiation dose to the patient.
“Artis Zeego”: This is an interventional imaging system. It is the first device of its kind to use a multi-axis platform to make large volume CT-like scans in a single 6-second sweep. It provides soft tissue imaging in less than a minute and enables enhanced navigation of instruments for minimally invasive surgery.
Computed Tomography [CT]: During a CT scan, an X-ray tube emits ionizing radiation captured by an X-ray detector in a ring-shaped apparatus that rotates around a patient’s body. The scan produces a high quality three-dimensional and cross-sectional image called a tomogram.
Ultrasound: Ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to create an image of soft tissue structures in the body in real time. An ultrasound test is often used to track the progression of pregnancies. It does not pose a risk to the fetus because no ionizing radiation is involved.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging [MRI]: MRIs employ safe magnetic fields and radio frequency pulses to produce detailed pictures of organs, soft tissues, bone and virtually all other internal body structures. MRIs do not produce ionizing radiation.
