Welcome to the Radiology Department
At Girard Medical Center, we are committed to providing advanced and comprehensive diagnostic imaging services through our Radiology Department. Our team of highly skilled and experienced radiologists and technologists work together to deliver accurate and timely imaging results that aid in diagnosing and treating various medical conditions.
1. Computed Tomography (CT): Our CT imaging services generate detailed cross-sectional images of the body. CT scans help our medical professionals visualize internal structures, identify abnormalities, and guide interventions. Our advanced CT scanners can capture high-quality images with reduced radiation exposure, ensuring patient safety and comfort.
2. Diagnostic Radiography and Fluoroscopy: Diagnostic radiography and fluoroscopy are essential imaging techniques that provide real-time visualization of internal organs and body systems. Our department offers both conventional X-ray imaging and fluoroscopic procedures, allowing our team to assess skeletal structures, identify injuries, and monitor the progress of treatments.
3. Mammography: Breast health is of paramount importance, and our mammography services play a crucial role in early detection and diagnosis of breast conditions. We offer digital mammography, a state-of-the-art technique that produces high-resolution images while minimizing discomfort. Regular mammograms are recommended for women as part of their overall health and wellness.
4. Ultrasound: Ultrasound imaging uses sound waves to create real-time images of the body's internal structures. Our skilled sonographers perform a wide range of ultrasound examinations, helping to evaluate various organs such as the heart, liver, kidneys, and reproductive organs. Ultrasound is non-invasive, safe, and often used to guide procedures.
5. Bone Densitometry: Bone densitometry, also known as dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA), is a specialized technique used to assess bone health and diagnose conditions such as osteoporosis. Our bone densitometry services provide accurate measurements of bone density, aiding in the prevention and management of bone-related disorders.
6. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI): MRI is a powerful imaging modality that uses a strong magnetic field and radio waves to create detailed images of the body's internal structures. Our MRI services offer exceptional image quality and allow us to visualize soft tissues, joints, and the central nervous system. We offer MRI services every Wednesday.
