St. Mary’s provides comprehensive diagnostic imaging on an in-patient and out-patient basis. Over 70,000 examinations are performed each year. Our staff is committed to providing patients with a compassionate, caring environment with the latest in technology and innovation in medical imaging.
For your convenience, the Diagnostic Imaging department is located on the first floor of the hospital.
The department offers the following services:
Ultrasound uses high frequency sound waves to image organs and soft tissue structures in the human body. Ultrasound is a safe imaging technology that allows imaging of internal structures without the use of radiation and it is an excellent tool for diagnosing a variety of conditions. The Sonographers, or Ultrasound Technologists, at St. Mary’s perform a variety of exams, including imaging of the abdomen, pelvis (both gynecological and urological examinations), blood vessels, breasts, thyroids, testicles and general soft tissue studies. The interventional suite also provides space for procedures or biopsies. At St. Mary’s we do not perform routine obstetrical exams, arterial exams for the upper and lower extremities, renal artery studies, or musculoskeletal scans.
A CT Scan (Computerized Tomography), uses x-rays to provide two- or three dimensional images of your body. This is different from routine x-ray examinations which produce a flat planar image. Some scans require the administration of an intravenous contract medium called a “dye”.
Elective X-ray at St. Mary’s operates from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday to Friday. Outside of these hours, x-ray services at St. Mary’s are for emergency cases only.
