Although we do take x-rays, radiology at Highland Community Hospital is far more than just x-rays. We have a full range of imaging services, including ultrasound, nuclear medicine, mammography, MRI, and digital CAT scan.
Ultrasound uses sound waves to visualize internal organs. Nuclear Medicine provides images to evaluate body system performance by using various contrast substances. Mammography uses x-rays to produce breast imaging. MRI produces images of the body by utilizing a magnetic field and RF signals. The digital CAT scanner constructs 2D and 3D images 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.
