Day Kimball Healthcare provides high quality, convenient diagnostic imaging services at four locations across northeast Connecticut. Our state-of-the-art facilities use the latest technologies. Our associated board-certified radiologists from Jefferson Radiology are experts in the fields of diagnostic imaging and interventional radiology. Our diagnostic services including CT/PET Scanning, Mammography, MRI, Nuclear Medicine and Ultrasound have been accredited by the American College of Radiology. And, our integrated Electronic Medical Records (EMR) system means your care team will have access to your imaging results as soon as they’re available, providing you with a shorter wait time to receive results and helping you to avoid redundant testing so you can better control your healthcare costs.

Our services include:

CT (Computerized Tomography) Scans 
Head and body scans, CT angiography, and CT-guided biopsies and surgical procedures are performed at Day Kimball Hospital.

DEXA (Bone Density/Bone Densiometry) Testing 
We offer dual energy bone density imaging for the detection of osteoporosis and high definition instant vertebral assessment for detection of spine fractures with rapid, low dose, single energy images in seconds.

Interventional Radiology
Image guided interventional services include a wide range of procedures, biopsies and pain management treatment.

Low Dose CT Lung Cancer Screening
The only recommended screening test for lung cancer helps identify early stage lung cancers.

We offer full field digital (FFD) screening and diagnostic mammographies, including the most advanced 3-D technology for mammograms, ductograms, needle localizations, invasive procedures and sterotactic core biopsies.

MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) 
Services include head and body scans, breast MRI and Magnetic Resonance Angiography (MRA). We also offer the High Field Espree Open Bore MRI machine for those who aren’t comfortable in the traditional enclosed MRI.

Day Kimball Hospital is now offering MRI for certain patients with Cardiac Implantable Electronic Devices [CEIDs]. The Day Kimball Cardiology group; in conjunction with Diagnostic Imaging has developed specialty protocols and policies that enable us to perform MRI’s on most patients with pacemakers and implantable cardiac devices including implantable cardioverters/ defibrillators. Patients with cardiac pacemakers and defibrillators have, in the past been disadvantaged because of poor access to MRI scans. This may lead to late diagnosis and misdiagnosis, particularly for cancer and neurological diseases. New technology along with tested protocols now allows safe and timely MRI scanning for patients with cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIEDs).

MRI patients please review the MRI Patient Screening Form below. You will receive a phone call before your appointment and be asked these questions. 


Nuclear Medicine 
Nuclear medicine uses radioactive substances to visualize the structure and function of internal organs. Services include cardiac SPECT scans, thyroid function scans and bone, gastrointestinal, liver, spleen, and renal (kidney) scans.

PET (Positron Emission Tomography) Scans 
PET scans use a radioactive drug to show how your tissues and organs are functioning. PET scans are helpful in diagnosing or assessing several conditions, including cancer, heart disease and brain disorders.
