Radiology is a medical field focused on diagnostic imaging services intended both to diagnose and treat various ailments and injuries. Our highly skilled staff at Wabash General Hospital performs a variety of diagnostic radiology exams to screen for possible disease, help diagnose medical conditions, and keep track of how the body responds to prescribed treatment. Our imaging technologists are registered by the American Registration of Radiology Technologists. Their interpretations of imaging services are completed by RadPartners, and ACR (American College of Radiology) offers guidelines for radiology services.

Imaging Services We Offer

Bone densitometry (DEXA)

These scans are similar to X-rays and are used to measure bone density quickly and accurately. They are used primarily for detection of osteopenia or osteoporosis, which is a condition that causes weakened bone mineral and density and increases the risk of sustaining broken bones.

Computerized tomography (CT or CAT scan)

These highly advanced diagnostic scans use computer-enhanced X-rays to show areas surrounded by bone. The tests can also help doctors see details within tissues, such as organs and blood vessels. CT scans are much clearer and detailed than standard X-rays and can often detect certain problems earlier.

Digital Mammography

A mammogram is a breast X-ray . Mammograms can detect breast tumors and cysts in women who have no signs or symptoms of the disease, when the disease is its most treatable. This type of mammogram is called a screening mammogram. Screening mammograms usually involve two or more X-ray pictures, or images, of each breast.

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI scan)

This highly advanced diagnostic imaging scan combines a powerful magnetic field, radio frequency waves, and computers to produce images of the body's internal tissues. These images help physicians diagnose specific medical conditions.

Nuclear medicine

This medical imaging technique uses small amounts of radioactive material, or tracers, to help diagnose and/or treat a variety of conditions or diseases. Nuclear medicine scans give doctors important information about how various parts of the body are working.

PET Scans (Positron Emission Tomography)

Medical imaging that shows your body’s metabolic activity. When combined, the PET and CT scans show what’s happening inside your body, including both normal and abnormal metabolic activity, as well as the anatomic details of the area where the activity is taking place.


A diagnostic medical imaging technique using sound waves to visualize muscles, tendons, tissues, and many internal organs. Imagery can show size, structure and/or abnormalities with real-time images.


An imaging technique that uses invisible energy beams to produce images of internal tissues, bones, and organs.
