Hello, .

Radiology

The Radiology Department offers many of the technologies available today that provide high-quality images for the diagnosis and treatment of illness and injury.

Pomerene Hospital's Radiology Department consists of technologists that are licensed by the State of Ohio and nationally as well. It is the goal of our staff to perform your exam professionally and provide the best service to our patients.

 

The imaging methods available at Pomerene Hospital are:

Bone Densitometry

A Bone Density, or DXA, is an exam that uses low energy x-rays to diagnose osteoporosis. Imaging of the lower back and both hips are usually completed. Sometimes an image of your forearm may be taken.

Cardiovascular

Cardiac and vascular testing uses ultrasound to take pictures and recordings of the heart and blood vessels. Ultrasound technology uses high frequency sound-waves to create pictures and recordings of the heart and blood vessels. The procedures are painless and have no known side-effects. After a water-based gel is applied to the skin, the sonographer places a small transducer on the surface of the skin and obtains and records the pictures for later interpretation by a specially-trained doctor.

 

Computed Tomography (CT)

A CT is a special type of x-ray that requires the patient to lie on a table while the table moves slowly. While the table is moving, images are being collected. A CT scan allows viewing of the internal organs and bones and helps with the visualization of tumors, cysts, diagnosis of disease, and they help determine surgical procedure if needed.

Diagnostic X-Rays

Diagnostic X-Rays are a source of radiation used in imaging that produces energy beams capable of penetrating most substances.

Fluoroscopy

Fluoroscopy is an imaging technology that is a variation of x-ray technology and is used to obtain real-time images of internal structures of a patient.

Holter Monitors/Event Monitors

Holter Monitor - records for 24-48 hours continuously and you will record any symptoms such as palpitations, shortness of breath, chest pain, lightheadedness or dizziness. The symptoms and the heart rhythm are then compared.

Event Monitor - This monitor records heart rhythm during episodes of palpitations, heart racing or to detect changes in your heart rhythm. This is done automatically or by you pushing a button during a symptom.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

MRI is an advanced, state-of-the-art diagnostic test which produces images of the body without the use of x-rays. MRI uses powerful, but harmless, magnetic field and radiowaves to produce the images.

Mammography

A Mammogram is a radiographic procedure using small amounts of radiation to detect masses and other abnormalities of the breast. It is capable of detecting approximately 2-3 times as many "early" breast cancers as a physical examination.

Nuclear Medicine

Nuclear medicine involves the use of small amounts of radioactive materials (or tracers) to help diagnose and treat a variety of diseases. Nuclear medicine determines the cause of the medical problem based on the function of the organ, tissue or bone.

Ultrasound

Ultrasound, also known as sonography, uses high-frequency sound waves to produce images of organs, blood vessels, and tissues within the body. These high-frequency sound waves are inaudible to the human ear and are transmitted through the body by an instrument called a transducer. A water-based gel is applied to the skin to help transmit the sound waves then special computer equipment converts the sound waves into an image.
