  • X-Ray & Fluoroscopy

    X-rays are performed for various reasons such as, but not limited to, diagnosing bone injuries, tumors or chest infections.

  • Computed Tomography CT

    A CT scan uses x-rays and computer technology to take multiple views of the inside of the body. Compared to regular x-rays, a CT scan can take clearer images of organs, bone, soft tissue, blood vessels and other parts of the body.

  • Mammography
    Our breast imaging centers offer a comfortable environment, a caring and experienced staff, and a wide range of state-of-the-art screening and diagnostic capabilities. Schedule your mammogram today.
  • Ultrasound

    An ultrasound is a diagnostic imaging technique that uses inaudible high-frequency sound waves emitted through the body to create an image of your internal organs on screen.

  • Bone Density Imaging
    DEXA (bone densitometry) is an imaging study to measure bone density. It's used primarily to detect osteoporosis.
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

    MRI uses radio frequency waves and a strong magnetic field rather than x-rays to provide remarkably clear and detailed pictures of internal organs and tissues. MRI is a valuable tool for the diagnosis of a broad range of conditions.

  • Medical Imaging

    All Swedish imaging departments are accredited by the American College of Radiology (ACR) in recognition of their demonstration of and commitment to quality diagnostic imaging.

  • PETCT and CT Imaging

    PET/CT exams target the exact location of tumors for radiation treatment, determine appropriate dosage levels, and minimize damage to healthy tissue in the process.

  • Nuclear Imaging

    Nuclear medicine is a specialty of medical imaging that uses medications to help detect the presence of disease or injury. Nuclear medicine patients are given a radioactive compound that travels through the body to the specific area being studied. A gamma camera is used to create images that provide information about the structure and function of most organ systems in the body.
