(ATLANTIC) The Cass County Memorial Hospital Diagnostic Imaging Department is celebrating National Radiologic Technology Week, November 4 – 10, 2012. This is celebrated every November to commemorate the anniversary of the discovery of x-ray by Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen on November 8, 1895.
CCMH uses this time to recognize their technologists and staff, and the state-of-the art care they provide at CCMH. The CCMH Diagnostic Imaging Department includes eight certified radiologic technologists, two certified ultrasound technologists, one certified nuclear medicine technologist and two office staff. Diagnostic Imaging uses several different methods to obtain images of the body, including radiology, computed tomography (CT), mammography, ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), bone densitometry (DEXA), nuclear medicine and stereotactic biopsy. These images provide critical information for health care professionals to diagnose and determine the best treatment for many health conditions.
At CCMH, their Diagnostic Imaging professionals are dedicated to providing our patients with superior care in all the services we provide.
