Our Lady of the Lake team members and executives attended a blessing ceremony Sept. 17 for the new Thomas J. Moran Imaging Center.

The imaging center, on the first floor of the Heart and Vascular Institute at Our Lady of the Lake, includes radiology, PET/CT, MRI, nuclear medicine, ultrasound and other special procedures.

In addition to providing diagnostic images for patients at the regional medical center, the Moran Imaging Center also plays a role in the diagnosis of cancer patients, their treatment and care management, a news release from the center said.

“The new imaging center offers the most comprehensive and technically advanced diagnostic radiology services for adults and children combined with a spacious and relaxing environment for patients,” said Dr. Brandon St. Amant, diagnostic radiology specialist. “The imaging center is one of the key services provided at Our Lady of the Lake Regional Medical Center and Mary Bird Perkins-Our Lady of the Lake Cancer Center.”

St. Amant was joined by Todd Stevens, chief executive officer of Mary Bird Perkins, in giving opening remarks. The blessing was led by the Rev. Sam Maranto with Our Lady of the Lake’s pastoral care.

The Imaging Center is named in honor of Thomas J. Moran, a grateful patient who recognized the significant difference imaging made in his care and outcome, the release said.
