COVID-19 Safety Precautions and Sterilization

 To Our Guilford Community

Now more than ever, the safety of our patients, community and staff is our top priority. Our staff is fully trained in Covid-19 screening, safety precautions and sterilization technique. We remained committed to our referring providers and patients and have been open throughout the pandemic, while continuing to maintain a clean safe facility.  Trust the staff at Guilford Radiology to take care of you and your family’s medical imaging needs in a patient friendly, convenient outpatient environment for the safest, most comfortable exam possible.

Our facility is clean, Safety is our primary concern

  • Our entire office gets a complete deep cleaning nightly.
  • Exam rooms and equipment are thoroughly disinfected after each patient, from mammography paddles to the CT & MRI bores, to the exam tables, counters, and areas of patient contact.
  • We are maintaining CDC and the state of CT guidelines. All staff and patients are required to wear appropriate face masks and staff wear other required PPE.  Patients without an acceptable mask will be provided one.

Prostate Screening Exam

Early Detection Saves Lives.

This includes early detection of Prostate Cancer.

In Connecticut Men, Prostate Cancer is:

  • The most commonly diagnosed cancer.
  • The 2nd leading cause of cancer death.
  • 60% higher in Black Men than White Men.

Talk to your doctor and get a yearly PSA Test beginning at:

  • Age 45:  Black Men & Men with a Family History of Prostate Cancer
  • Age 50:  All other Men

If your PSA is elevated, get a Prostate MRI.

  • MRI is the only imaging exam that can screen for prostate cancer.
  • Prostate MRI is non-invasive, safe and painless test.
  • Most insurance companies will cover a prostate MRI, check with your provider for plan covrage.
  • Although many men have normal exams and don't need a biopsy, if the MRI shows a suspicious area, that area can be directly biopsied.

Our Radiologists at Guilford Radiology have been reading and performing Prostate MRI for years.  Guilford Radiology also has a top-of-the-line MRI scanner and the advanced software to provide the best quality images.  

 Be assured if your doctor orders a prostate MRI exam, the staff and readiologists at Guilford Radiology will provide you with the best care and results.
