Seeing Your Health More Clearly
Imaging plays an important role in your health and treatment. The radiology services at CMC act as a second set of eyes for your doctor. What they can’t see on the inside of your body can be seen clearly with the use of modern imaging techniques By making the invisible visible, your medical team can gain a better understanding of what’s going on in your body and build a treatment plan just for you.
The imaging services at CMC are used for preventative health screenings, to diagnose the causes of existing symptoms, and to monitor existing conditions and treat them. Some of the different types of imaging we use are X-rays, CT (computed tomography) scans, MRI (magnetic resonance imaging), ultrasound, and 3D mammography. Each imaging type uses a different technology to create the snapshots that are then analyzed by our radiologists.
The imaging department is a modern, progressive department staffed by qualified professional including nationally registered and state certified technologists, and board-certified radiologists that rivals other larger hospitals across the country. CMC had long been the pioneer for imaging services and has been the first hospital in our area to implement several new cutting-edge techniques and technologies.
Our expert radiologists and staff stay on the cusp of this advancing and ever-changing technology and are trusted resources for your doctors. Once the proper exam is determined, your radiologist reviews and interprets the results of your images that your doctor then uses to direct your care.
In some instances, your radiologist will use imaging services to treat medical conditions – not just diagnose problems. This is called interventional radiology. Doctors use medical imaging to guide minimally invasive surgical procedures for treatment for various purposes. From corrective procedures for varicose veins to targeted radiation therapy for various cancers, this type of imaging offers a host of life changing procedures that are minimally invasive and effective.
