Radiology Department and Mobile MRI
Our radiology department offers a wide variety of diagnostic imaging along with a mobile MRI once a week. All studies are read the same day with a final report within an hour. With efficient electronic access to patient information, delivering and receiving studies means your provider has your results as quickly as possible.
Diagnostic imaging has come a long way and is sure to keep climbing as technology improves. Our facility strives to keep up with the times without losing the most important element of a rural hospital, which is patient care. We pride ourselves in our ability to keep this at the forefront and not lose sight of why we are here.
In 2007, we began by updating our x-ray room with digital fluoroscopy. In 2014, we added new mammography and ultrasound machines, which provide more comfortable exams for the patient and clearer images in test results. Coming in spring of 2015 is a 32-slice CT machine, an upgrade from the 16-slice machine. A 32-slice CT acquires more images in less time, and at considerably lower radiation dosage to the patient. This leads to better image quality and better diagnoses while improving patient comfort and safety.
At Three Rivers Hospital, we are able to offer a wide variety of diagnostic imaging modalities. Our ultrasound services include vascular, cardiac, labor and delivery, and arterial. We also have the ability to send or receive studies for patients whose provider practices at another facility. This allows the patient to have the study done here, and their provider already has the results when the patient arrives at their next appointment. This means less travel for the patient and less stress about potential outcomes, and providers love the efficient electronic access to patient information.
