Diagnostic Imaging Services

Proper treatment of injury and disease relies on the proper diagnosis of a patient's underlying condition. St. Joseph Hospital provides state-of-the-art diagnostic and therapuetic services within our diagnostic imaging department, through a variety of state-of-the-art technologies. We are equipped with high-quality and effective diagnostic imaging technology including: digital mammography, bone densitometry (DEXA scan) MRI, CT Scan, PET/CT, Ultrasound, Nuclear Medicine, Interventional Radiology, and General Radiology.

Continuing our tradition of leading the way in providing the most advanced technology to our patients, St. Joseph Hospital was the first in the community to implement PACS (Picture Archiving & Communication System). With PACs, images and information can be accessed by multiple users at multiple locations simultaneously, increasing the ease with which consultations can occur between the medical staff and our dedicated expert radiologists.

A patient's comfort is as important to us as the level of expertise we offer. We understand that many diagnostic procedures, and the reasons for having them, may be stressful. That's why our knowledgeable technologists and staff perform diagnostic testing with personal care and attention, taking time to explain each procedure so you'll know what to anticipate every step of the way, beginning with how to prepare for an imaging exam. We encourage patients to ask questions if they want more information about a specific process or procedure.
