Here is an overview of the imaging technologies available at MRH:

X-Rays and Fluoroscopy

X-Rays are an important part of our imaging department and are commonly used to non-invasively view broken bones and other medical conditions. Fluoroscopy is used to take streaming real-time images by x-ray and combines those images to create a kind of “x-ray movie”.

CT or CAT

Computed Tomography or Computed Axial Tomography is an x-ray procedure that combines many x-ray images with the aid of a computer to generate cross-sectional views and, if needed, three-dimensional images of the internal organs and structures of the body. In just seconds, this advanced technology can make a complete scan of your entire body – or produce detailed views of a targeted area.

MRI

Magnetic Resonance Imaging is a painless and safe diagnostic procedure that uses a powerful magnet and radio waves to produce detailed images of the body’s organs and structures, without the use of x-rays or other radiation.

3D Digital Mammography

Mammography is a specific type of imaging that uses a low-dose x-ray system to examine breasts and is the primary means of the early detection of breast cancer. Computer-aided detection (CAD) systems use an image obtained from a digitally acquired mammogram. We also offer 3D digital mammography, which improves the quality of the images, improves breast cancer detection, and reduces the need for follow-up imaging. 

Ultrasound

Ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to produce images inside of the body that can be viewed on a monitor. It is a safe and painless way to view internal organs without radiation and is often used to monitor the health and development of a baby before birth.

Bone Densitometry

Bone Density testing is a tool for classifying bone mass as normal, osteopenia or osteoporosis. This procedure is non-invasive and may be ordered by your doctor to determine if you have osteoporosis or low bone mass.

Moab Regional Hospital’s Financial Assistance Program

Medical bills can seem intimidating and overwhelming, even if you have health insurance. Moab Regional Hospital is a not-for-profit, 501(c)3 hospital and is committed to helping you afford the health care you deserve. We have a generous financial aid program that you could be eligible for!

The Statistics

Information was recently gathered from a survey and focus groups of randomly selected residents of Moab and surrounding areas. Those who responded to our survey and participated in our focus groups listed the “ability to pay the high cost of health care” as one of their top concerns from a list of community health concerns. Then when they were asked about our financial aid program, a total of 67% of respondents said that they didn’t apply for financial assistance because they either didn’t think they would qualify or they weren’t aware of the program. We are dedicated to helping our community afford their health care. Our financial assistance program is set up so that we can assist as many patients as possible, with generous amounts paid out to aid in this goal. Before assuming you may not qualify, get in touch with one of our Financial Navigators who can give you a better idea of what you may qualify for at 435-719-3540

How Is Financial Aid Determined?

Our financial aid program is determined on a sliding scale based on income and family size. For example, if you have a family of four, and you make $44,000 a year, Moab Regional Hospital would cover 50% of your hospital bill. Keep in mind that our financial assistance program is available to everyone, those with health insurance and without. We understand that meeting your deductible and out-of-pocket costs can be overwhelming, we’re here to help. The deadline to apply for financial assistance through our program is 120 days after the date of your first billing statement. These applications are reviewed by a committee and are usually decided within 30 days.
