Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and ultrasound are two methods of taking dynamic visual images inside the body without the use of radiation used in x-ray and CT scans. MRI uses powerful magnets and radio waves and ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to produce visual images of organs, tissues, or blood flow inside the body. Logan Regional’s magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and ultrasound services are accredited by the American College of Radiology (ACR).
How does being accredited benefit patients?
Patients who come to Logan Regional Hospital for accredited imaging services can expect a higher standard of care than receiving non-accredited services. They can be assured:
- The equipment being used to determine the extent of their illness or injury is being calibrated daily to ensure high-quality, consistent images of the body.
- The radiologists who read the images participate in peer-to-peer reviews so that there is consensus and accuracy among their colleagues on diagnoses.
- They will receive the proper dose of radiation (used in CT scanning) in accordance with FDA recommendations.
- The technologists are experts in their field and in using the imaging equipment.
Emergency diagnostic imaging services are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
