At CVMC, our Radiology department performs exams to "image" internal body parts and systems. These images help providers diagnose injuries, diseases and other illnesses.
We offer the following tests (all of which must be ordered by a provider for both inpatients and outpatients):
- Routine X-Rays
- Computed Tomography (CT) Scans
- PET/CT (Positron Emission Tomography/Computed Tomography)
- Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
- Breast Biopsies
- Nuclear Medicine

Radiology equipment operated by licensed technologists is completely safe and without significant health risks to you. Technologists use radiation-reducing measures such as minimizing the area exposed to x-rays, and lead aprons for patients of childbearing age. Pregnant patients are encouraged to notify the technologist before the exam starts.
