Weems Memorial Hospital offers a wide array of radiological services to our patients.
CT Scans – CT scans combine a series of x-rays taken from many different angles with computer procession to produce a cross-sectional view of bones or soft tissues. CT scans are used to help doctors treating patients who may have internal injuries.
X-rays – This non-invasive procedure uses a low dose of radiation to produce images of the inside of your body. X-rays are a very safe and useful diagnostic tool.
Ultrasounds – Ultrasounds send high-frequency sound waves (inaudible to humans) through the body and produce pictures from the echoes of those waves. Ultrasounds are used to look at soft tissues within the body and can also be used to look at blood flow in arteries to find blockages. Ultrasounds are completely painless and use no dyes or radiation.
The types of radiology exams that Weems can perform include, but are not limited to Aorta, Abdominal, OB, Renal, Liver, Arterial, Venous, Scrotal, Breast and Pelvic.
