Diagnostic Imaging provides all types of medical imaging to aid in diagnosis, treatment and preventative care. The main hospital imaging department provides state-of-the-art diagnostic radiography (x-ray) and fluoroscopy, nuclear medicine, ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computerized tomography (CT) using the latest technology, and highly qualified technologist. These images are interpreted by radiologists (physicians who specialize in diagnostic imaging) who hold advance training and certification in general radiology and specialty areas, including interventional radiology, musculoskeletal imaging, cross-sectional imaging (CT and MRI).
In addition, the department provides women’s imaging – breast imaging, osteoporosis scanning (bone density or DEXA), breast ultrasound, PET-CT (a fusion or combined imaging using both CT and nuclear medicine for specific cancer and heart conditions). The department uses medical informatics (computerized processing, storage, and viewing) to ensure timely and accurate interpretation and reporting of studies.
