Medical imaging services we offer

Our hospital's network includes board-certified physicians, radiologists and interventional radiologists. They use the latest advancements in imaging and radiological technology to diagnose and treat your condition.

Our outpatient imaging services include:

CT scans

A CT scan, also referred to as a computerized axial tomography (CAT) scan, uses X-rays to produce detailed images of the body's organs, bones, soft tissues and blood vessels. CT scans may be used to guide biopsies and detect:

  • Blood clots
  • Broken bones
  • Cancers
  • Heart disease
  • Internal bleeding

Our hospital offers the cutting-edge, 64-slice CT scan and a large, open scanner with tumor localization technology. These technologies provide the highest level of accuracy in radiotherapy.


Fluoroscopy uses X-rays to create real-time, moving pictures of structures within the body. The ability to see the images in real time allows for increased accuracy for diagnoses and procedures.


An ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to produce video images of soft tissues, such as in the cardiovascular, gastrointestinal or reproductive areas. Ultrasounds are often used during prenatal care to examine and produce images of the fetus.


An X-ray uses a small dose of radiation to produce images of the body. X-rays are especially helpful in diagnosing bone and joint injuries, but they can also be used to detect an infection, tumor or fluid in the lungs.
