Imaging services

Imaging exams allow radiologists (imaging specialists) and physicians to view structures and activity within the body. This is vital for diagnosis but also for treatment, to ensure your care plan is working as it should.

Imaging center in West Palm Beach, Florida

The diagnostic imaging center at HCA Florida JFK North Hospital provides full-service medical imaging.

We use advanced technology, resulting in superior image quality and quick scans. We also provide interventional procedures. Our radiology team includes registered and licensed technologists by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists. Together, they make your experience with us as quick and comfortable as possible.

Our diagnostic imaging services 

Our imaging services include: 

Computerized tomography (CT) scan

A CT scan uses X-ray technology to capture images of the inside of the body. It can take more precise and detailed pictures than X-rays. CT scans are often used to examine the brain, chest, abdomen and pelvis to help doctors diagnose diseases or life-threatening illnesses.

Our advanced CT scanner offers the latest in CT technology, allowing physicians to perform multiple diagnostic exams quickly and accurately.

CT scans have several diagnostic capabilities, including:

  • Viewing bleeding inside the body, especially in the skull
  • Studying the chest, abdomen, and sinuses
  • Determining the size and site of a tumor
  • Diagnosing skeletal problems
  • Diagnosing blood vessel diseases
  • Planning radiation treatments for cancer
  • Guiding biopsies and other tests
  • Planning surgery
  • Identifying injuries from trauma


With fluoroscopy, physicians can visualize internal organs in motion and in real time. Joints and blood passing through veins can also be viewed with this diagnostic technology.

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)

Our treatment teams at JFK North use MRI to see details inside the body, view the extent of injuries and detect diseases. MRI uses a high-powered magnet and radio waves to create accurate and detailed images.

Our advanced MRI technology delivers breakthrough results, including enhanced image quality and ease of application. The combination of faster and better scanning has proven to decrease the time for the patient in the magnet significantly.


Ultrasound imaging uses sound waves to produce images inside the body. With ultrasounds, we can evaluate blood flow, internal organs, pregnancies, cancer, abdominal disorders, blood vessel problems, pelvic disorders and more.


X-ray is a high energy form of electromagnetic waves that helps physicians visualize bones, soft tissues and some organs.

Interventional radiology

Interventional radiology is a medical sub-specialty where imaging technology is used to guide a minimally invasive diagnostic procedure or treatment. Our hospital offers a wide range of interventional radiology procedures, including:

  • Arteriography and venography
  • Vertebroplasty for back pain
  • Vascular stent placements, including aortic artery stenting
  • Non-invasive treatment of fibroids
  • Imaging total joint replacement with MRI
  • Carotid stenting

Interventional vascular procedures

Our Special Procedures Room is the largest interventional vascular procedures room in West Palm Beach. Full anesthesia capabilities are built into our Special Procedures Room along with an advanced angiography system.

Advanced radiology technology

Our radiologists use a picture archiving communication system (PACS). 

PACS allows a team of physicians to view and manipulate images simultaneously, even from separate locations. This technology improves turnaround time for reporting of studies, and it allows for accelerated decision making in critical situations.
