Radiologic Diagnostic Imaging

You can count on our team of skilled technologists and board-certified radiologists at GRMC for quality diagnostic imaging. Our state-of-the-art services include 3D digital mammography, X-ray, fluoroscopy, new 64-slice CT, nuclear medicine, MRI, and complete OB imaging services and ultrasound, including Doppler 4-D scanning. Mobile X-ray services are available for the comfort of our critical care and emergency patients.

Our digital mammography services use computer-assisted diagnostic 3-D technology for a computerized “second look” for screening and diagnostic mammograms. PACS (Picture Archiving and Communication System) replaces hard-copy diagnostic images with direct digital feeds from modern imaging equipment, which translates to faster service and a permanent digital record of your imaging study results.

The GRMC radiology department focuses on patient comforts, patient privacy, patient satisfaction, and operational efficiency. The staff of 20 registered technologists and two office personnel provides coverage 24 – 7 at GRMC. These trained staff members conduct approximately 25,000 radiology procedures per year, from chest and extremity x-rays and CTs to ultrasounds and mammograms.

The process of taking radiographs remains largely the same, although technologist will use a digital plate instead of a traditional film plate. Patients will experience less radiation and fewer retakes of films caused by lost films.

Caring for Women is a Way of Life for Us

Your good health is our top priority. We are members of an elite group of facilities across the country that share an important commitment to raising the standard of care for every patient. We are proud to be recognized as a certified Pink Ribbon Facility.

As a Pink Ribbon Facility we take pride in providing every woman that comes to us for a mammogram with a digital mammography exam. Digital mammography produces images that appear on the technologist's monitor in a manner of seconds. There is no waiting for film to develop, which means a shorter time spent in the exam, and you may get the results the same day.
