Diagnostic Services


CHI St. Joseph’s Health offers the latest diagnostic technologies in a friendly, close-to-home setting.

Radiology

St. Joseph’s radiology services offer local residents access to state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatment procedures around the clock without traveling far from home. Our tele-radiology system keeps a radiologist in contact as needed for CT image interpretation to provide faster results. This provides better service and ultimately better care for patients.

This allows for almost instantaneous image access on site and a host of capabilities to transmit images to local physicians as well as provide a easily carried CDs for those needing to make a consult.

We also use the #1-ranked Computerized Radiography system, which is a film-free electronic means to do x-rays. In addition, we have ultrasound capable of 3-D imaging, as well CT with advanced post-processing capabilities and software. Specially trained and registered mammography technologists are available for screening and diagnostic mammograms, helping to keep area residents healthy.
