Medical Imaging

When it comes to medical care, a proper diagnosis is the first step toward proper treatment. Using advanced imaging procedures, it is easier for physicians to see what is occurring inside the body, allowing for early detection of illnesses and abnormalities. Through the first step and all the steps thereafter, ECRMC’s Medical Imaging Department will focus on the entire diagnostic process. Most medical imaging results are available for your physician the same day of testing, ensuring you receive the care you need, when you need it, 24 hours a day and 7 days a week.

The medical imaging department at ECRMC is committed to providing patients with the highest quality imaging services using state of the art technology in a comfortable and professional setting. Our commitment is backed by caring and highly-skilled staff dedicated to your well being. Medical imaging services are provided in both inpatient and outpatient settings.

The medical imaging department is accredited by the American College of Radiology (ACR) in Mammography, Computerized Tomography (CT), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), and Nuclear Medicine. The ACR is the country’s oldest and largest accrediting body diagnostic imaging. The accreditation is a distinction which is not just awarded, but earned. ACR-accredited imaging facilities operate far above accepted standards for accuracy, professionalism, patient safety, and quality assurance.

The team of qualified professionals in the medical imaging department consists of Radiologists, Radiologic Technologists, Nuclear Medicine Technologists, Ultrasound Technologists, Nuclear Medicine Registered Nurse and Radiology Registered Nurse. In addition to the licensed professionals, this department acknowledges its support staff of dedicated individuals trained in various areas of clerical processes, ensuring the proper format and processing of all requests and needs of our patients.
