Services Include: Ultrasounds, Echocardiograms, Nuclear Medicine Studies, Bone Density Testing, CT, and MRI.
Person Memorial Hospital’s licensed and registered radiology physicians, technologists and sonographers offer a variety of diagnostic services to assist your doctor in his diagnosis. A board-certified radiologist or physician interprets all tests and the results are available immediately to your doctor.

- Bone Density - a bone densitometry is used to measure bone loss and to assess your risk for developing fractures.
- Computed Tomography (CT) – sometimes called a CAT scan, CT uses special x-ray equipment to obtain many images from different angles and then join them together to show a cross-section of body tissues and organs.
- Echocardiography - also called an echo test or heart ultrasound is a test that takes “moving pictures” of the heart with sound waves.
- Low-Dose CT Lung Screening - lung CT scans using low doses of radiation can effectively detect lung cancer in its earliest stages.
- Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) - a non-invasive imaging method that uses radio waves and a powerful magnetic field to produce clear and detailed images of virtually any part of the body.
- Mammography - a specific type of imaging that uses a low dose x-ray for the examination of the breasts. It is frequently used as a screening tool to detect early breast cancer.
- Nuclear Medicine - a healthcare specialty involving the use of radioactive compounds to perform diagnostic imaging examinations that can lead to the effective treatment of disease.
- Stress Echo - a test that looks at the heart’s function with images taken before and after walking on a treadmill.
- Ultrasound - a method of obtaining images from inside the human body through the use of high-frequency sound waves. No radiation is involved. Obstetric ultrasound refers to the specialized use of sound waves to visualize and determine the condition of a pregnant woman and her embryo or fetus.
This department also conducts exercise stress tests (ETT) also called "stress tests".
