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.

Medical imaging we provide

Our radiology and imaging services provide fast and reliable results. With these images and videos that examine the body's internal structures, doctors are able to better diagnose and treat our patients.

Teams in the imaging services (also known as radiology) department collaborate with laboratory specialists to manage everything from hematology to microbiology tests. Our laboratories are committed to high-quality service and patient-centered care.

We perform a variety of imaging procedures, such as:

  • Computed tomography (CT) scan
  • Fluoroscopy
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
  • Nuclear medicine imaging
  • X-ray
  • Endoscopy and upper endoscopy

Upper endoscopy procedure

Upper endoscopy or esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) is a diagnostic procedure that allows the physician to diagnose and treat problems in the upper gastrointestinal (UGI) tract.

For the procedure, you will swallow an endoscope, which is a thin, flexible, lighted tube. Right before the procedure, the physician will spray your throat with a numbing agent to help prevent gagging. The endoscope transmits an image of the inside of the esophagus, stomach and duodenum, so the physician can carefully examine the lining of these organs. The scope may also blow air into the stomach which expands the folds of tissue and makes it easier for the physician to examine the stomach.

An EGD may be performed to diagnose structural or functional abnormalities of the esophagus, stomach and/or duodenum. These abnormalities may include the following:

  • Dysphagia (difficulty swallowing)
  • Weight loss (loss of appetite)
  • Upper abdominal pain or chest pain of a non-cardiac origin
  • Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
  • Intractable vomiting (continuous vomiting from an unknown cause)
  • Strictures (narrowing) or obstructions
  • Gastrointestinal bleeding and esophageal varices (enlarged veins in the esophagus)
  • Inflammation and ulcers
  • Tumors (benign or malignant)
  • Hiatal hernia (upward movement of the stomach, either into or alongside the esophagus)
  • Damage caused by ingestion of caustic substances (chemicals such as lye or household detergents)

Scheduling an imaging appointment

Your primary care physician or specialist can send their orders directly to us, or they may give you paperwork to bring in to your imaging appointment. All imaging services require doctor's orders before an appointment can be set.
