Medical imaging is the technique and process of creating visual representations of interior body organs or systems for clinical analysis and medical treatment. Medical imaging is used to reveal internal structures, as well as to diagnose and treat disease. It helps to establish normal anatomy and physiology to identify abnormalities. Imaging modalities include radiology and the use of X-rays, CT scans, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasound, nuclear medicine, and positron emission tomography (PET scan), among others.

Outpatient imaging hours: 7:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.

Crisp Regional Hospital’s Imaging Department, formerly known as Radiology or X-Ray, is second to none as we utilize the latest state-of-the-art imaging technology. We offer comprehensive services close to home, provided by experienced technologists and board-certified radiologists.

Our imaging services are accredited by the American College of Radiology (ACR). Digital technologies decrease radiation by approximately 50 percent. Results and images are available immediately for your physician to view through our online digital records system, PACS (Picture Archive and Communication System). Not only are diagnoses and treatment planning made much simpler and faster for your physician, but the digital image clarity is also superior, resulting in the reduced need for retakes and the capability to manipulate the image for improved interpretation.

The Imaging Department is conveniently staffed seven days a week, 24 hours a day, for inpatient care for our community.

Services and Modalities

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)/Magnetic Resonance Angiography (MRA) utilizes a high field magnet with a large bore opening and fast scan time, making it more comfortable for patients while providing exceptional image quality. The MRI is located in a spacious suite with windows to aid patients with claustrophobia.

CT Scanning utilizes the latest 64-slice technology and ASIR upgrade — a software that lowers radiation by 30% without compromising image quality. CT is used to diagnose stroke, lesions, masses, trauma, blood clots, and heart and vessel blockages.

DXA (Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiometry) is a low-dose radiation exam that detects bone loss by measuring bone mineral density. Through early diagnosis of osteoporosis, fractures — including hip fractures — can be prevented.

Positron Emission Tomography (PET)/CT Imaging is the gold standard for diagnosing, staging and determining a cancer treatment plan. It provides detailed information regarding the spread, location, size, and nature of cancer in the entire body, detecting cancer sites not found by other imaging modalities. PET has the ability to differentiate scan tissue from tumors, as well as benign from malignant lesions. It also can demonstrate metabolism or biochemical changes. Together, PET and CT reveal a complete picture, providing both anatomic and metabolic information in stunning detail to help physicians correctly and completely diagnose and localize cancer.

State-of-the-art 3D mammography is available for patients using the Senographe Pristina Mammography System. Early detection and diagnosis of breast cancer saves thousands of lives every year. Mammography services are inspected annually by Phoenix Technology, the physicists’ group, and accredited by the American College of Radiology, the FDA, and The Joint Commission.

Crisp Regional offers a benefit not offered by other area imaging services: Patients receive their mammogram results before leaving, offering real peace of mind.

Other imaging services include ultrasonography (cardiac, vascular, obstetric, and abdominal scanning) and the latest digital radiography and fluoroscopy equipment. We have recently installed new digital radiographic and fluoroscopic equipment and the latest technology in portable radiographic equipment for bedside and emergency imaging.
