Radiology

Mammography is the process of using low-dose X-Rays (usually around 0.7 mSv) to examine the human breast. The goal of mammography is the early detection of breast cancer, typically through detection of characteristic masses and/or microcalcifications. Mammography has been shown to reduce mortality from breast cancer. No other imaging technique has been shown to reduce risk, but breast self-examination (BSE) and physician examination are essential parts of regular breast care.

Medical sonography (ultrasonography) is an ultrasound-based diagnostic medical imaging technique used to visualize muscles, tendons, and many internal organs, their size, structure and any pathological lesions with real time tomographic images. It is also used to visualize a fetus during routine and emergency prenatal care. Ultrasound scans are performed by medical health care professionals called sonographers. Obstetric sonography is commonly used during pregnancy. Ultrasound has been used to image the human body for at least 50 years. It is one of the most widely used diagnostic tools in modern medicine.

Phillips Ultrasound - Keeping pace with the beat of life

Echocardiography is the main tool for heart failure assessment. Philips Ultrasound uses 2D and 3D imaging and quantification tools to help doctors answer the major questions related to heart failure management.

Computed tomography (CT) is a medical imaging method employing tomography. Digital geometry processing is used to generate a three-dimensional image of the inside of an object from a large series of two-dimensional X-ray images taken around a single axis of rotation. The word "tomography" is derived from the Greek tomos (slice) and graphein (to write).

Diagnostic Radiology. As a medical specialty, radiology can be classified into two subfields. Diagnostic radiology is concerned with the use of various imaging modalities to aid in the diagnosis of disease. Interventional radiology uses these imaging modalities to guide minimally invasive surgical procedures.

Our new GE 16-slice CT scanner has been installed and is ready to use.  This is the same technology as you will find in Mobile or Montgomery but it's right at home.

"CT" scan, or sometimes called "CAT" scan, stands for Computerized Tomography, a valuable, painless, diagnostic test that allows radiologists (doctors who specialize in the use of imaging for diagnosing diseases) to see inside some areas of the body which cannot be seen using conventional x-rays.

At Grove Hill Memorial Hospital, we want your CT scan to be as stress-free as possible.

Each CT scan is tailored to each patient's needs. In general, the actual imaging time with the GE BrightSpeed™ lasts only about one minute.
