Imaging services refers to the performance of imaging exams for better visualization and treatment of medical conditions. Different exams allow radiologists and physicians to view structures and activity within the body. Imaging exams are vital for diagnosis and there are a wide range of tests that can be performed.

Our diagnostic imaging services
We perform comprehensive imaging tests to help accurately diagnose and detect medical conditions.
Types of imaging we offer
- Computerized tomography (CT) scan — CT scans consist of a series of detailed X-rays to produce a cross-sectional 3D-image of soft tissue bodily structures (e.g. tendons, ligaments, fat and connective tissue). Our skilled radiologists have the ability to review CT scans as a whole or individually to obtain as much information as possible. Available 24/7 in our facility, CT scans offer extremely accurate results allowing swift diagnosis and treatment.
- Ultrasound — Noninvasive ultrasounds emit high-frequency waves that reflect as echoes when they reach solid surfaces, producing a moving image. Ultrasounds play a pivotal role in patient screening and vascular disease follow up. Ours is one of the few hospitals in the area offering 24/7 ultrasound imaging.
- Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) — MRI is used by radiologists to visualize internal structures that are extremely detailed in nature. A magnetic field is used to produce high-quality images in multiple planes.
- X-ray — X-rays use electromagnetic energy beams to produce images, helping to diagnose tumors or injuries to bone. Routine diagnostic X-rays for outpatients are scheduled seven days a week.
- Nuclear medicine — Nuclear medicine is an imaging specialty that uses radioactive substances to diagnose and treat diseases in the body. Nuclear medicine exams include bone scans, gastric emptying times, thyroid scans, hepatobiliary scans, GI bleed studies and cardiac SPECT scanning.
- Positron emission tomography (PET) scan — A PET scan allows your radiologist to view functions within the body. A radioactive tracer is often ingested to highlight certain internal structures so they can be identified easily during the imaging procedure.
- 3D Mammography — Mammography uses low-dose X-ray imaging to examine breast tissue, helping to diagnose and treat breast-tissue anomalies, such as tumors, breast cancer and other breast diseases. Our team at the Memorial Breast Center will be there for all of your breast imaging and diagnostic needs. We offer mammograms, biopsies, ultrasounds and other tests specifically tailored to detect abnormalities in the breast. We also have a nurse navigator who can support you and answer any questions you may have. For more information about our breast imaging services, please call (904) 702-6426.
- Bone density testing — The dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) scan is an X-ray scan that uses a small amount of radiation to take pictures of different bones. These pictures are used to measure the density of the bones at the spine, hip and forearm. Measurements of the spine and hip are called central DEXA, and measurements of the arms or legs are called peripheral DEXA. Bone density scanning is helpful in the diagnosis of osteoporosis.
- Lung cancer screening — We provide specialized diagnostic tests to help identify lung cancer. These tests can be crucial in detecting lung cancer early and improving treatment outcomes. Tests we offer include endobronchial ultrasound, low-dose CT screening, electromagnetic navigation bronchoscopy and robot-assisted bronchoscopy.
