The radiology department in our critical access hospital is committed to providing the highest standard of compassionate care to our patients using the latest technology, equipment, and training for each medical service. Radiology services are provided on an outpatient, inpatient, swing bed, and emergency basis.
A computerized tomography scan (CT scan), or computerized axial tomography scan (CAT scan), combines digital data from several X-rays to produce a highly detailed image of structures within the body, such as the bones, the blood vessels, and the soft tissues. These computerized X-ray imaging procedures are used to generate cross-sectional 2- and 3-dimensional images of a section or a slice of the body — these slices are called tomographic images. The scanner emits a series of narrow radiation beams through the human body, and it can detect hundreds of different degrees of density — the CT scanner can produce images of tissues within a solid human organ. Physicians, then, analyze these images to identify organs, disease, and abnormalities within the patient’s body.
Outpatient diagnostic X-rays are performed on a walk-in basis 7 days a week from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. No appointment is required. Please bring a copy of your order from your physician, insurance card and ID.
Outpatient ultrasounds are a scheduled procedure. Certain types of ultrasounds require special instructions. To schedule an ultrasound, please call 386-496-2843. Same-day appointments are usually available.
