Radiography, or as it is most commonly known, an x-ray, is the oldest and most frequently used form of medical imaging and is the foundation for a myriad of applications that impact every medical specialty.
We possess a full compliment of imaging tools including:
- Digital Radiography
- Computed Radiography
- Picture Archiving and Communications System (PACS)
(allowing clinicians to view radiographic images and reports online throughout the facility)
Our staff and services are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for our inpatients and Emergency Department patients, and during normal business hours for our outpatient population.

- Plain Film - is the patient's part; and, can provide excellent information on the diagnosis and progression of many conditions
