Diagnostic Imaging

Diagnostic Imaging

At Pottstown Hospital, diagnostic imaging is used to create a graphic depiction of the structures and functions of the body’s organs and other internal systems. These images are used to examine and diagnose certain medical conditions.

Being able to see inside the body without cutting it open was perhaps the most important medical advancement of the 19th century. At Pottstown Hospital, we use advanced imaging technologies, including 3D Mammography, computed tomography and interventional radiology to offer a clear picture of possible issues inside the body.

Images and reports are available within 24-48 hours of the completed exam, and all reports are faxed to your referring doctor.

Fluoroscopy

Think of Fluoroscopy like a video x-ray. With the help of a contrast agent like barium, fluoroscopy gives doctors a rela-time view of bodily systems at work.

Nuclear Medicine

A special kind of imaging, nuclear medicine creates images of the body and its functions by capturing the energy of a safe radioactive substance as it flows through the body.

Ultrasound

Sometimes called sonography, ultrasounds bounce high-frequency sound waves off the body to produce a real-time picture of the internal structures including organ formation, movement and blood flow.
