Diagnostic Imaging Services
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
Owensboro Health Muhlenberg Community Hospital's MRI provides a means for the physicians to better diagnose tumors, strokes and orthopedic abnormalities. It provides an atmosphere that is more comfortable for the patients.
Computerized Tomography (CT) Scans
Owensboro Health Muhlenberg Community Hospital's CT scanner quickly produces clearly defined three-dimensional images of all body systems including organs, bones, arteries and veins in less than one minute. This enables the physician to more quickly make a diagnosis and provide the proper treatment.
The scanner rotates in a continuous 360-degree motion around the patient. It produces detailed laser images of cross-sectional slices of the body on the computer screen that can identify tissue abnormalities, tumor masses, tiny fractures, displaced bones and unusual accumulations of fluid.
A variety of nuclear medicine studies are available in
this area, including bone scans, thyroid scans, renal scans, lung scans and cardiac stress tests.
Ultrasound uses sound waves to see inside the body. An "echo" is created by sound waves passing through the skin and bouncing off certain organs and tissues. These echoes reflect through a transducer to a monitor. The specialized technologists in our Ultrasound area offer routine abdominal and obstetric/gynecological studies in addition to carotid and arterial/venous Doppler studies.
