The Radiology Department at Indianhead Medical Center serves in-patients, outpatients and ER patients. We are capable of performing diagnostic imaging on newborns o the very elderly. We can accept patients in wheelchairs or on stretchers in addition to those who walk or need to be carried. If the patient is unable to come to the department, we have the capacity to do most exams portably.
The normal working hours for our department are from 7:00 am or 8:00 am until 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday. The technicians are available “on call” outside of normal hours for the rest of the time; with a 20-minute response time. Our technicians have completed formal radiological technology training in an AMA approved school and are registered by the AART. The radiologists are certified by the American Board of Radiology and staff the department daily and on-call.
Exams are done promptly and accurately according to our protocols. Professional staff will be available to provide comfort, safety and privacy. Any particular needs will be addressed while in our care.
