Imaging

We provide high-tech imaging to ensure accurate diagnoses from head to toe. Imaging tests are performed in a caring, patient-focused environment and meet our high standards of comfortable, compassionate results-driven care.

Diagnostic imaging refers to technologies used to create images of inside the body. These images are used to reveal, diagnose, or monitor a medical condition.

Diagnostic imaging uses a variety of equipment and techniques to create these images. Your physician will determine the best technology to use based upon your symptoms and the part of the body being examined.

Our wide array of imaging capabilities, including high-speed, low-radiation, and even 3-D imaging, allow our doctors to determine the most accurate treatment for your individual medical needs.

Advanced imaging technology ensures your digital images are immediately available, reducing the stress and anxiety that come with waiting for medical results.

Digital diagnostic images, reports, and results give our radiologists the ability to access, compare and dictate studies from any location, at any hour of the day.

Digital results also allow your entire caregiving team to consult one another online, through a secured internet connection, regarding your images, reports and examinations.  This enhanced level of communication strengthens collaboration for those delivering your care and allows you to have the most comprehensive, comfortable and thorough experience.
