We offer radiological excellence in imaging services, with a team of physicians and technicians who have specialized training and licensure in numerous radiological procedures.
Digital imaging systems, such as Picture Archival Communications System (PACS) and DR Systems, allows radiology images and reports to be examined digitally as soon as they are captured. With this technology, images and reports are available to physicians for viewing right away, either here in the hospital or in the physician's own office. The result for our patients is a timely turnaround of high-quality images, eliminating the need for time-consuming and cumbersome films.

Varicose veins are dilated veins that have lost their valve effectiveness and become elongated, bulged and thickened. Veins carry blood from the capillaries to the heart. In the leg, this means the blood has to flow upward, against gravity. These veins have one-way valves to prevent the blood from flowing backwards.
Uterine fibroids are benign, non-cancerous, growths — within or on the muscular walls of the uterus or womb. As many as 20 to 40 percent of women over the age of 35 have fibroids. They can be caused by a combination of genetic, hormonal or environmental factors; however the true cause is unknown.
Osteoporosis is a process that develops within the bones and makes them fragile and more likely to fracture. Anyone can develop osteoporosis, but it is common in older women. According to studies, 25 percent of men and 50 percent of women over the age of 50 will break a bone due to osteoporosis.

A chest X-ray is a black and white image of the chest area which shows the heart, lungs and bones of the rib cage. The chest X-ray does not show the inside of the heart, but does show its size, shape and location.
Computed Tomography (CT Scan)
Computed tomography (CT scan) technology uses X–rays and complex computers to create cross–sectional “slice” images of the body. Each image provides detailed views of anatomy at the specific location or slice, including bones, soft tissue, brain, organs and blood vessels.
Wide Bore MRI
Espree 1.5 Tesla magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) system is a leading-edge technology that produces accurate high quality images and reduces exam times. The Wide Bore MRI offers more room than traditional MRI.
