A diagnostic test is any kind of medical test performed to aid in the diagnosis or detection of disease.
At CRMC, we provide our patients with the highest quality healthcare that Southeast Kansas provides and our Medical Imaging Department houses state-of-the art equipment for patients needs so they don't have to travel to other facilities; they can get their testing done right at home.
We have 29 staff in the Medical Imaging Department. All of our staff are highly trained in their specific fields.
The use of radiation to produce images using a computer technology to diagnosis and treat injuries and disease.
A non-invasive test that uses x-rays to create cross sectional images of the body.
A non-invasive test that uses magnetic fields and radio waves to acquire images of the body.
The use of very small amounts of radioactive material to diagnose, and sometimes treat disease.
A screening and diagnostic tool used in detection of breast cancer. This new technology now allows us to have better quality and immediate images.
A non-invasive test using sound waves to see organs and tissues.
A non-invasive test that accurately images the cellular function of the human body. Combination of CT and PET to help in detecting CancerDual Energy X-Ray Aborptiometry (DEXA Scan)
A test to determine early stages of bone loss associated with Osteoporosis, a disease in which bone density increases, making bones brittle and prone to fracture.Digital Picture and Archiving Communication System(PACS)
Our Medical Imaging Department uses a PACS system. This system automatically downloads a digital copy of a patient's Xray, MRI Scan, CT Scan and PET Scan. This enables any physician to retrieve any patients information without having to print a film. The PACS System breaks down the physical and time barriers associated with traditional film-based image retrieval, distribution, and display. The physician also has the ability to burn CD's to take images to another facility, if need be.
Registered Lab Techs use sophisticated, automated, equipment and instruments that perform a number of tests simultaneously, as well as microscopes and cell counters to perform more "manual" testing, to safely perform quality, complex testing, to analyze body fluids, tissues, and cells. The results are analyzed, evaluated, and relayed to physicians to help deliver quality patient care.
