At Fannin Regional Hospital and Riverstone Imaging Center, diagnostic imaging is used to create a graphic depiction of the structures and functions of the body’s organs and other internal systems. These images are used to examine and diagnose certain medical conditions.
The diagnostic imaging team performs a range of specialized services, such as vascular and doppler ultrasound, myelograms, arthrograms, and guided biopsies. A cardiologist can also order and read cardiac nuclear medicine studies, echo cardiograms, calcium scoring and cardiac CTA studies performed on an 80 slice CT scanner.
