• Technology Brought to Life


  • Every day we use the power of modern medical technology to change lives. We were one of the first in the region to provide the latest technology in diagnostic imaging for a variety of health indications. Our Southern California Gamma Knife Center is the only Gamma Knife Center in the Inland Empire. From the 64-Slice CT to digital mammography, San Antonio Community Hospital delivers the latest technological advances.

    Perfexion™ Gamma Knife
    Imagine brain surgery without a single incision. Gamma Knife technology makes it possible. Read More >> 
    3Tesla MRI
    3T MRI technology has twice the magnetic strength of a standard 1.5T MRI, producing images with greater clarity than ever before. Read More >> 
    64-Slice CT Heart Scan
    64-slice CT technology can provide images so detailed, it creates a virtual "road map" of even the tiniest arteries in the heart. Read More >> 
    Digital Mammography
    Digital mammography gives physicians a better chance of detecting early stages of breast cancer. Read More >> 
    3D Transesophageal Echocardiograms
    3D "Echo" technology is the latest generation in Echocardiograms, used by physicians for measuring heart function. Read More >> 
    Stereotactic Breast Biopsy
    A stereotactic breast biopsy is a minimally-invasive procedure that uses stereo images (advanced images of the breast from different angles) to determine the precise coordinates of the abnormal tissue to be biopsied. Read More >> 
    PET Scans
    Positron Emission Tomography (PET) is a test that uses a special type of camera and a tracer (radioactive chemical) to look at organs in the body. Read More >> 
    Diagnostic Ultrasound
    Ultrasound imaging, also called sonography, involves exposing part of the body to
    high-frequency sound waves to produce pictures of the inside of the body.

    Angiography
    Catheter angiography is a minimally invasive test that produces pictures of blood vessels. A thin plastic tube (catheter) is inserted into an artery through a small incision in the skin. Read More >> 
    Giraffe Omnibeds
    The Giraffe Beds serve as an integral part of the NICU, which provide superior care for some of our more sensitive patients.  Read More >> 
    da Vinci® Si Robot
    The da Vinci Si Robotic System provides a minimally-invasive option for surgeries ranging from uterine fibroid tumor removal and endometriosis to pelvic organ prolapse, hysterectomies, many gynecological cancers and more. Read More >> 
    Omnicell 
    Omnicell allows the hospital pharmacy to securely store and track medications while reducing potential errors and improving the quality of care.  Read More >> 
    Impella 
    Impella is the world's smallest left ventricular assist device (LVAD), used to support patients who are experiencing heart failure either before or after open heart surgery or cardiac catheterization.  Read More >> 
    Telemedicine 
    Stroke telemedicine utilizes video conferencing technology, similar to communicating via a web camera. Neurologists, physicians with advanced training in the nervous system, use this “video conferencing” to evaluate and treat patients experiencing an acute stroke.  Read More >>
