General Radiography offers exams for virtually any body part. These exams are performed in a special x-ray room and may consist of several individual images. Depending on the exam, you may be asked to stand sit or lie down. You will need to hold still for while we take the X-rays.
Computed Tomography (CT) uses x-rays to create hundreds of images of the body part in question. These images can then be reconstructed and displayed in several different angles or in 3D. For these exams, you will be asked to lie very still on a special table that moves you through the CT machine. Some studies require preparation and may include the use of an oral and or an intravenous (IV) contrast.
In 2017, we installed our new GE Revolution EVO, 64 slice CT Machine. This is a significant upgrade from our previous machine.
Ultrasound does not use radiation. Instead, like sonar, directed sound waves bounce off of structures in your body and that information is converted into an image. Some studies require preparation and special instructions the day prior to your exam.
The Bone Density Scan (Dexascan) uses a very small dose of ionizing radiation to produce images of the inside of the body (usually the lower spine and hips) to measure bone loss. These images are an essential tool for diagnosis of osteoporosis. The new scanner will allow providers to assess an individual's risk for developing osteoporotic fractures while giving patients access to up-to-date technology close to home. Even if you are seeing a specialist in Billings, your doctor can order your scans to be done locally and then can be electronically sent to your doctor.
Cardiac Monitoring. We also offer 2 cardiac monitoring tests. Electrocardiograms (EKGs) and Holter Monitors
- EKG’s: An electrocardiogram (EKG) is a medical recording of the electric impulses from the heart. We attach several electrodes to the patient’s chest, then the impulses from their heart are displayed as a graph on the EKG machine.
- Holter Monitors are 24 or 48 hour heart monitors. These are very similar to EKG’s. The main difference is that the Holter Monitor stays attached to you when you go home and monitors your heart for up to 48 hours. You will need to come back in after the test is complete so we can remove the monitor and send it to be read by a cardiologist. We try to apply Holter Monitors Monday-Wednesday so that it can be removed before the weekend.
