How Do I Make An Appointment For CT, Bone Density, Ultrasound, or MRI?
Obtain a Doctor's Order
Call the Iron County Medical Center Radiology Department at 573-546-8031
A mammogram is an x-ray of the breast. It is the best screening tool we have today to find breast cancer early when it is most treatable. It can find breast cancer when it is very small, even too small to feel. It can also detect abnormal changes to the skin and calcification's. To schedule a screening mammogram call Teresa with the Mobile Mammography Van at (314) 996-7585
*You do not need a doctor's order for screening mammograms if you are age 40 or beyond.
Ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to look at organs and structures inside the body. Unlike x-rays, ultrasound does not involve exposure to radiation.
Computer Tomography (CT)
During a CT scan, you lie still on a table. The table slowly passes through the center of a large x-ray machine. During some tests, you receive contrast dye, which makes part of your body show up better in the image. The uses of CT include looking for broken bones, cancers, blood clots, signs of heart disease and internal bleeding.
Bone Densitometry Benefits
Bone densitometry is a simple, quick and noninvasive procedure. The amount of radiation used is less than a day's exposure to natural radiation. Bone densitometry testing is the most accurate method available for the diagnosis of osteoporosis and is also considered an accurate estimator of fracture risk.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
Magnetic resonance imaging uses a large magnet and radio waves to look at organs and structures inside your body. Health professionals use MRI scans to diagnose a variety of conditions, from torn ligaments to tumors. MRI's are very useful for examining the brain and spinal cord.
X-ray technology uses electromagnetic radiation to make images. The image is recorded on a film, called a radiograph. X-ray examination is painless, fast and easy. The amount of radiation exposure you receive during an x-ray examination is small.
