Department of Radiology provides comprehensive inpatient and outpatient diagnostic services. Imaging techniques available include computed radiography, computed tomography (CT), ultrasound, mammography and diagnostic angiography. Inpatient Services The Inpatient Radiology Department is a 24-hour imaging service that uses x-ray producing equipment (computed radiography) to generate images of the tissues, organs, bones and vessels of the body, as prescribed by physicians, to assist in the diagnosis of disease or injury. Procedures are also performed at the patient's bedside using mobile radiographic equipment, in surgical suites through the use of mobile fluoroscopic (C-arm) units, as well as in the Emergency Department, and recovery room.
