Radiographs and ultrasound images are also sent to the radiologists for interpretation or second opinion on difficult cases. The imaging services offered at this facility include ultrasound, traditional X-ray, MRI and nuclear scintigraphy. Scintigraphy detects tracer amounts of radioactivity administered for detailed examination of organ function such as kidney, liver or thyroid, as well as bone scans.
