Our Imaging and Radiology Department provides you with a complete range of diagnostic and treatment services. Using state-of-the-art equipment, our skilled team provides you with caring, safe, and accurate imaging services that are fully coordinated with your medical care.
All of our imaging is read by a Board Certified Radiologist via teleradiology services through Mountain Medical. You will receive a separate bill for each professional read provided by Mountain Medical.
Imaging Technologies at MRH include:
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.
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 using x-rays or other radiation.
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.
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 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.
