Available at all five EHS locations
The diagnostic imagining department supports the emergency room as well as all other areas of our hospitals by providing images inside the body with the goal of identifying potential problems not observable from outside the body.

These images are read by board-certified radiologists trained to interpret these images and skilled in interventional and diagnostic procedures. Often, visits to our ER will include x-rays or, even, a CT scan depending on the type injury being treated. Sprains, fractures, concussions, and dislocations are best treated with the aid of diagnostic imagining. Diagnostic tools we use include:
