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
Our imaging services include:
Electronic images are available instantly to physicians through an electronic
medical record system for efficient consultation.
