At Phoenixville 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 Phoenixville 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.

As a part of Phoenixville Hospital's clinical affiliation with the University of Pennsylvania Health System, our board-certified radiologists are members of the Department of Radiology at the University of Pennsylvania. Our technologists are certified by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists®, as well as specialty certified for each imaging modality. Our mammography department is certified by the American College of Radiology. And each year, our highly trained team performs more than 100,000 imaging procedures.

Additionally, all images and reports are available within 24 hours of the completed exam, and all reports are faxed to your referring doctor.

CT Scanner

Thanks to CT scanning (computed tomography, often called a “CAT” scan) doctors can view a “slice” of the human body painlessly.

Fluoroscopy

Think of fluoroscopy like a video x-ray. With the help of a contrast agent like barium, fluoroscopy gives doctors a real-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.
