Medical Imaging Services in Napoleon, OH
Henry County Hospital is Rated Highly for Patient Experience
Large hospitals often have advanced technology, but without the personalized
care of a smaller hospital. On the other hand, smaller hospitals often
have quality care, but lack some of the advanced technology found in larger
hospitals. At Henry County Hospital, we aim to strike the perfect balance.
Though we offer all the comforts and familiarity of a smaller, local hospital,
we also offer state-of-the-art medical imaging services that can meet
each patient's needs. Our staff has over 100 years of combined experience
and provide a level of care that is both personable and professional.
Medical Imaging Services
We offer a wide range of services in medical imaging, including the following:
Bone Densitometry (DEXA) Scanning - This is a screening tool for osteoporosis that uses low dose x-ray to
image lumbar spine hips or wrist to measure the amount of cortical bone
or bone mass that supports the human body.
Computerized Tomography (CT) Scan - A tool that uses x-ray to create small cross-sectional images and 3D
data sets so anatomy may be visualized for abnormalities in many different views.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) - An imaging tool that uses a radiofrequency waves along with a strong
magnetic technology to view the soft tissues of the body such as the brain,
spinal cord and disc, abdominal organs and joints.
Digital Mammography - the use of low-dose x-ray to produce images of the breast to screen
for abnormalities. This service is accredited by the American College
of Radiology and is certified by the FDA.
Nuclear Medicine Scanning - requires an injection of special medication called a radioisotope to
visualize the function of internal organs, or it may be used to diagnosis
abnormalities in the bone by using a special camera that picks up the
activity of the injected radioisotope.
PET/CT - requires an injection of a radioisotope to look for the spread of cancer
through the organs and soft tissues. The patient will be imaged with a
CT scanner and then a nuclear medicine camera. The images will then be
fused together to give greater detail for the radiologist interpreting
Stereotactic Breast Biopsy - is the use of mammography technology to perform a less invasive biopsy
using a specially designed needle system in order to obtain breast tissue
samples, that will be further reviewed by a special doctor called a pathologist
who will provide a diagnosis of the abnormality.
Ultrasound/Vascular Ultrasound - the use of high frequency sound waves to obtain images of the abdominal
and pelvic organs, OB (fetal), and small parts including the thyroid,
breast, or scrotum. Vascular ultrasound is used to screen for deep vein
thrombosis (DVT) in the extremities, and to evaluate for peripheral vascular
disease in the carotid arteries of the neck or the arteries in the extremities.
This service is accredited by the American College of Radiology.
