Radiology is the study of images of the inside of the human body. Although radiology began with the use of x-rays and large, flat sheets of photographic films, the modern radiologist now has a variety of additional and digital tools for “taking pictures” of internal structures of the human body. Many of these newer tools create an image with the help of computers and some do not use any x-rays or conventional radiation, as MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) and ultrasound. First-rate radiology services at Lourdes provide these and many other forms of radiologic imaging.
Note: Lourdes Health System’s medical centers handle general, plain-film, x-ray procedures on a walk-in basis. Patients do not need an appointment for these procedures. For other types of imaging, request your appointment online.
