Through our two hospitals and outpatient medical imaging locations in the north Valley, John C. Lincoln Health Network offers a full spectrum of diagnostic imaging services.

Radiography (X-Ray): Bone radiography is a way to take pictures (X-rays) of bones. A low dose of radiation is passed through the body, producing images of the bones on a piece of film.

Ultrasound: Ultrasound is an imaging test that uses sound waves to display pictures of your organs on a screen. This test can be used to assess symptoms such as pain and to check for problems. Endoscopic ultrasound combines ultrasound and endoscopy (a microscopic camera guided by a catheter) to collect images and information about the digestive tract, as well as surrounding tissue and organs, such as the lungs and pancreas.

Mammography: Mammography is an x-ray exam of breast tissue. The image produced is called a mammogram. A mammogram can help detect problems with your breasts, such as cysts or cancer.

PET Scans: A positron emission tomography (PET) scan is an imaging test that uses a very small dose of a radioactive chemical called a radiotracer. Most commonly used to detect cancer, a PET scan helps your doctor determine how the organs and tissues inside your body are functioning. The test reveals metabolic changes occurring at the cellular level in an organ or tissue.

CT Scanner: CT, which stands for computerized tomography, is a type of diagnostic test that converts multiple X-ray images into images on a screen. CT scans can reveal details that cannot be seen in conventional X-rays.

Computerized Radiography (X-Ray): Computerized Radiography (CR) is similar to conventional radiography (X-Rays) except that in place of a film to create the image, an imaging plate is used. The image is then converted into a digital format that can be enhanced and enlarged for viewing.

Bone Densitometry: Bone densitometry, also known as a bone density scan (DEXA), is an enhanced form of x-ray technology that is used to measure bone loss.

Echocardiography: An echocardiogram (echo) is an imaging test that helps your doctor evaluate your heart. This test, which bounces harmless sound waves (ultrasound) off the heart, is safe and painless. This test helps show the size of your heart and it also helps show the health of the heart’s chambers and valves.

Arterial Vascular Testing: This painless, noninvasive test can detect any blockages or other irregularities in the veins and arteries.

MRI: Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a test that lets your doctor see detailed pictures of the inside of your body. MRI combines the use of strong magnets and radio waves to form an MRI image.

Fluoroscopy: Fluoroscopy combines the use of x-ray images and a fluorescent screen to provide real-time images of a patient's internal organs.

Tomography: Tomography is a diagnostic tool that provides images of each section of a specific part of the body.
