The Imaging department is made up of a dedicated team of Registered/Certified techs that are ready to assist the Medical Staff with your imaging needs.
With low radiation doses, x-rays serve as a means of diagnosing or ruling out the possibility of any fractures or disease. Our techs will explain what they are going to be doing, and how they will be taking several x-rays each in a different position, to try and get a different angle of the body part being x-rayed. In the event that a patient is unable to come to our x-ray room, we have a portable x-ray machine that can be brought into the Emergency room or in an inpatient room. It helps us to get the job done more efficiently without moving a critical patient unnecessarily.
CT- (CAT scan)
Our 32 slice CT scanner can quickly run very detailed scans on our patients, showing many thin ‘slices’ of the areas being scanned. It aids in the Medical Staff’s ability to diagnose or rule out a possible stroke, cancer, bowel obstruction, pulmonary embolus, and other diseases. With new technology software, we are able to provide scans at a lower radiation dose than in the past with our previous scanner.
This is a low dose x-ray scan that checks your bone density for osteopenia or osteoporosis. We use your lower back and both femurs. If you have had lower back surgery or either hip replaced, we can use your forearm. This test takes approximately 20 minutes.
MRI, Mammography, general and vascular ultrasound, and Nuclear Medicine are available by Mobile Services and can be scheduled through our Outreach department.
