State-of-the-Art Imaging Services in your county
From X-rays to ultrasounds, the radiology teams at Shepherds Hospitals specialize in imaging and diagnosis for high-quality patient care. Our diagnostic imaging services include X-rays, ultrasound, and more.
What to Expect
The radiology staff will go above and beyond to ensure your comfort and safety while receiving an imaging test or undergoing a surgical procedure. Our radiology services are digital and “low dose,” meaning patients receive only as much radiation as they
need to produce successful imaging. In some cases, radiation exposure may be reduced by as much as 60 percent.
- Diagnostic X-ray is a medical procedure using X-rays to help identify (diagnose) disease or injury. The machine sends X-rays through your body to procedure an image.
- Ultrasound is a method of obtaining images of your internal organs using sound waves. As the sound waves make contact with organs, portions of the sound waves bounce back to the transducer like echoes. These echoes are then analyzed by a computer to produce an image of the organs on the screen of the ultrasound equipment. There is no pain during the examination and current evidence does not indicate any health risk resulting from the sound waves that enter the body during a diagnostic ultrasound exam.
