The hospital's GE CT scanner produces detailed images not produced by ordinary X-ray. A CT scan can rapidly provide 3-D images of various parts of the body: including the brain, teeth/jaw, sinuses, eyes, neck, spine, chest, abdomen, pelvis, arms and legs. Ultrasound and traditional X-ray are other diagnostic imaging services frequently employed to assess an emergency center patient's condition.
The hospital's 24-hour clinical laboratory, accredited by the American College of Pathologists (CAP), and our echocardiography and cardiopulmonary services are available to help diagnose and assess trauma and conditions such as heart attack and stroke.
