DIAGNOSTIC IMAGING

At Monroe Hospital, you will find a full range of resources to meet your diagnostic imaging needs. From the latest imaging technology to flexible scheduling and prompt results, we offer everything you would expect and more. We offer state-of-the-art digital Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS), technology that ensures better images for radiologists and supplies quicker results than older film based systems. Our physicians and staff provide a caring and compassionate atmosphere for our patients.

Diagnostic Imaging services offered at Monroe Hospital include:

Diagnostic Radiology/Fluoroscopy – A radiological technique for obtaining X-ray images of a living patient. A radiologist uses a switch to control an X-Ray beam that is transmitted through the patient. The X-rays then strike a fluorescent plate that is coupled to an “image intensifier” that is coupled to a television camera. The radiologist can then watch the images on a TV monitor.

Available 24/7
Completely digital radiology rooms mean images are available for viewing by radiologists in as little as 3-4 seconds after the images are taken.

We offer a wide variety of fluoroscopy exams, including:

  • UGI
  • Barium Swallows
  • Barium Enemas
  • Arthrograms
  • Myelograms
  • Hysterosalpangiograms

Magnetic Resonance Imaging MRI’s are used to visualize the internal structure and function of the body. MRI provides much greater contrast between the different soft tissues of the body, making it especially useful in neurological (brain), musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, and oncological (cancer) imaging.
