Imaging (Radiology)

The Imaging (Radiology) Department provides ultrasound, CT scans, MRIs, mammography, nuclear medicine exams and bone densitometry. State-of-the-art Picture Archival and Communication System (PACS) allows physicians to look at images on the computer wherever they are, eliminating the need to transport images throughout the hospital or deliver images to different facilities. Magnetic resonance imaging technology includes the new Signa™ Architect MRI system from GE Healthcare, the most advanced MRI available today. Fort Memorial Hospital is the first hospital of its size in the nation to have this equipment.
