Shelton-based Advanced Radiology Consultants opened its new imaging center at 30 Danbury Rd. in Wilton. The South Wilton office is the company’s eighth location, joining its network of imaging centers in Stamford, Fairfield, Trumbull, Shelton, Stratford and Orange.

The Wilton imaging center is located near the Wilton/Norwalk town line on Rte. 7, close to the Merritt Parkway/Rte. 15 and Interstate 95. The center will offer open high-field MRI, digital screening mammography with 3D breast tomosynthesis, ultrasound and elastography, bone densitometry, and digital X-ray.

According to a press release from Advanced Radiology, “the new, state-of-the-art, open high field MRI is the second installed unit of its type in the country. It is capable of producing extraordinary images and features noiseless scanning. The capability of this leading edge technology allows Advanced Radiology to expand the range of exams that can be performed, including enhanced imaging of patients with orthopedic implants and joint replacements.”

Company officials say the new facility will also serve as a model for new and newly-redesigned imaging centers in the future, and demonstrates Advanced Radiology’s commitment to providing a patient experience that combines “high quality care, patient comfort and significant healthcare value.”

“Our objective has always been to give patients and doctors convenient and efficient access to the latest technology, the expertise of our subspecialty trained radiologists, and exceptional value for their healthcare dollar,” says Clark Yoder, chief executive officer of Advanced Radiology Consultants. “We are excited about bringing the convenience of our services to the Wilton, Ridgefield and Norwalk communities.”
