    Radiology/Imaging


    Although we do take X-rays, radiology at Highland Community Hospital is far more than just X-rays. It's a full-range of imaging services, including ultrasound, nuclear medicine and the digital CAT scanner.

    Ultrasound uses sound waves to visualize internal organs. Nuclear medicine provides images to evaluate body system performance by using various contrast substances. The recently upgraded digital CAT scanner constructs 3-D pictures of any part of the body.

    These images provide valuable information in determining a precise diagnosis for physicians to use in determining treatment plans. Staff radiologists interpret every study and provide reports to physicians in a timely manner. This assures that the patients receive exams and interpretations equal to those they would get anywhere.
