Our radiology suite offers a full range of scans, so you can be proactive about your health care and to help you spot problems early. We use the latest technology, because we believe rural communities should have access to advanced health care.
Our scanning equipment includes:
X-ray imaging creates pictures of the inside of your body using electromagnetic waves. An X-ray is a quick, painless test that produces images of the structures inside your body — particularly your bones.
Digital X-Ray Multi-function & Digital Portable X-Ray
Our digital X-rays transmit the data they collect straight to the computer. This speeds up the time needed to access the image and means doctors can digitally transfer and enhance images. Also, less radiation can be used compared to a traditional X-ray.
Bone density (DEXA) scans
Bone density scans are used to help diagnose bone-related health problems, such as osteoporosis, or to assess the risk of getting the disease. It is a low-dose X-ray that measures calcium and other minerals in your bones. This will show the strength and thickness (density) of your bones.
Mammograms are an important tool to detect breast cancer in men and women. Our 3D mammogram is an imaging test that combines multiple X-rays to create a three-dimensional picture of the breast to help us better detect growths or abnormalities.
A computerized tomography (CT) scan puts together multiple X-ray images of your body and combines them to create cross-sectional images of your bones, blood vessels and organs. It provides more detail than just an X-ray. It can be particularly helpful to quickly examine people who may have internal injuries.
64-Slice CT scanner
Our 64-Slice CT scanner creates 64 high-resolution images per rotation, which speeds up scan time compared to a traditional scanner.
Low Dose CT Lung Scan
Our low dose CT scanner is recommended for detecting early stage lung cancer that may be too small to be detected by a traditional X-ray. The smaller the cancer when it’s detected, the more treatment options there are likely to be available.
Ultrasound imaging uses sound waves to produce pictures of the inside of the body. It can be used to diagnose causes of pain or infection inside the body, or to examine an unborn child (fetus).
Our general ultrasound can be used to scan various areas of the body.
Our Vascular Ultrasound uses sound waves to look at your circulatory system (veins and arteries) to help spot blockages and blood clots.
Our Echocardiology Ultrasound specifically looks at your heart function in order to diagnose any problems with your heart and monitor any ongoing issues such as heart disease.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) uses a magnetic field and radio waves to create images of the inside of your body. We use MRI scans to diagnose problems with bones, soft tissue, organs, and joints.
