What is the Gill Imaging Center?

The Gill Imaging Center is a nearly $10 million venture that utilizes some of the most technologically advanced imaging equipment available. This outpatient center provides complete diagnostic imaging of a wide variety of clinical conditions. Housed within the center is the UK Advanced Cardiovascular Imaging Program. This program is led by a team of cardiologists, radiologists and technologists and serves to noninvasively diagnose and assess the extent of a patient's heart disease.

What types of technology are offered?

The Gill Imaging Center has two state-of-the-art 64-slice computed tomography (CT) scanners. One of these units is a dual-source CT scanner and represents the next generation of CT technology. It is the first of its kind in Kentucky. This innovative technology is approximately twice as fast as other CT machines, capturing precise images of a beating heart in seconds, reducing the need for heart-slowing medication while providing exceptional images to aid in diagnosis and treatment decisions.

Also within the Gill Imaging Center, two new magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) units expand UK HealthCare's imaging capabilities. The 1.5T MRI unit is the clinical standard for imaging the breast, chest, heart, abdomen, bones and joints, including the spine. The 3T MRI unit benefits from an even higher magnetic field and is perfect for advanced studies of the brain and the entire vascular system.

Who can benefit from the new imaging center?

People who may benefit from our new imaging capabilities are those who are not able to be evaluated by other means such as echocardiography, stress test, conventional X-ray, ultrasound or nuclear studies. In certain situations, these new imaging technologies can be used in place of more invasive tests.

How do I make an appointment?

Ask your doctor's office to schedule an appointment at the imaging center or call 859-323-9977.
