Knox County Diagnostic Imaging Services

Imaging services are perhaps the most important tool in any hospital. The best way to treat disease and injury is to uncover the true, underlying cause as soon as possible and treat it directly. In the past, surgeons would have to cut patients open in order to learn more about what was going on inside the body. This method was as inefficient as it was dangerous. Today, Good Samaritan is equipped with cutting-edge diagnostic imaging equipment that allows our knowledgeable physicians to view the body’s internal structures without putting any unnecessary strain on the patient.

We Remain on the Cutting-Edge of Imaging Tech

Radiology, also known as diagnostic imaging, utilizes tools like x-rays, MRI, and CT scans to create detailed images of the body’s inner structures. These instruments were revolutionary when they were first put into practice and they have only improved over time. Newer, faster, more accurate versions of diagnostic equipment are continuously being approved for medical use.

At Good Samaritan, we keep up with the latest developments in medical technology so that we can provide our patients with the best, most modernized health care services possible. We have replaced standard x-rays with more efficient digital x-rays; we have upgraded mammograms with 3D mammography, which creates a more detailed view of dense breast tissue; we have employed low-dose CT scans for lung cancer screening to reduce patient risk; and much more.

Our imaging services include:

  • Digital x-ray
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
  • Computerized Tomography (CT) scanning
  • Ultrasound
  • Breast Specific Gamma Imaging (BSGI)
  • 3D Mammography
  • Nuclear Medicine
  • Interventional Radiology



We are proud to have been designated a Lung Cancer Screening Center.
