Floyd County Medical Center Radiology Department offers a wide variety of high quality imaging services taken on “state of the art” equipment comparable to larger facilities.
Floyd County Medical Center staffs eight full time skilled technologists that are all registered with the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists and certified by the Iowa Department of Public Health. Radiographic images are read and interpreted by experienced board-certified Radiologists.
Floyd County Medical Center is staffed 24/7.
Radiology has grown into an important tool for diagnosis and treatment of patient’s and their care. Floyd County Medical Center is committed to providing the best quality care to all of our patients.
- 3D Digital Mammography
3D mammography, images of the breast are taken from multiple angles which help the radiologist see breast cancers earlier and provide better views through dense breast tissue. Clearer images also reduce the chance that a woman will be unnecessarily called back for a repeat test – something that can cause great anxiety. The ability to do all of these things with the same small dose of radiation as 2D mammography makes 3D a better choice for most women.There is an additional cost for a 3D mammogram. Please check with your insurance regarding coverage for 3D before scheduling. Medicare does cover 3D mammography.
- Diagnostic Radiography
Diagnostic Imaging is a conventional x-ray. We have two diagnostic imaging rooms where we can perform all types of x-rays, including digital fluoroscopy (live x-rays of the gastrointestinal tract as well as arthrography joint studies).
- Computerized Axial Tomography (CAT Scan) with 3-D reformation
The Computed Tomography (CT) Scanner is a special x-ray machine, which uses computer techniques to produce images of your body. The CT scanner is shaped like a doughnut and to obtain these images, the x-ray tube rotates around your body while you lie on the table. For certain CT scans an IV may be started for the injection of the intravenous (IV) contrast solution to better visualize the vessels and structures of the body part being imaged. The ordering physician will be able to inform you if the IV contrast solution is needed.
- Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Services
MRI stands for Magnetic Resonance Imaging. MRI does not use radiation but instead uses a magnetic field and radio waves to create a very clear picture of structures inside your body. MRI uses sensitive equipment and specially-designed computers to create images of the entire area being scanned.
- Nuclear Medicine
Nuclear Imaging is a method of producing images by detecting radiation from different parts of the body after a radioactive tracer material is administered. The main difference between nuclear imaging and other radiologic tests is that nuclear imaging assesses how organs function, whereas other imaging methods assess anatomy or how the organs look.
- DEXA Bone Densitometry
Bone Densitometry uses two energies: x-ray and an absorption energy, to obtain an image and measure the densities within the spine and hips. This gives the most accurate result in diagnosing osteoporosis risk.
- 3D/4D Ultrasound
Ultrasound is the examination of internal organs through the use of high-frequency sound waves. Ultrasounds produce real-time images of soft tissue and can capture movement of internal organs.Our ultrasound machine also has the capability to perform 3D Ultrasound imaging which will allow expectant parents a first look at their unborn child after 20 weeks of pregnancy.
- Fluoroscopy Services (UGI – Stomach, Colon, Small Bowel studies)
- Ultrasound Guided breast biopsies
- Stereotactic breast biopsies
Please contact your Healthcare provider to discuss having your imaging performed at Floyd County Medical Center.
