Radiology

UHS’ radiology department performs non-invasive tests at our convenient location on the health center’s ground floor – no appointment needed.

UHS diagnostic imaging staff

Radiography uses x-rays to produce images of your body. Frequent uses include chest x-rays, to evaluate the lungs, heart and chest wall; and bone x-rays, which can identify breaks, injuries and disease.

No special preparation is needed. The x-ray doesn’t hurt, but you may need to be positioned in a way that feels uncomfortable. If holding a position is difficult, tell the technologist.

If you are, or think you may be, pregnant, it’s important to let the technologist know. Female patients are asked to review and sign a pregnancy statement before having x-rays.

Our technologists are licensed and certified by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists. Images are interpreted by board-certified radiologists.

We perform studies requested by your UHS provider; written orders are required. If your provider orders services UHS doesn't offer, including mammography, CT scans ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), you’ll be referred to an area imaging center or hospital.
