Radiology & Imaging
At Indiana University Health, our radiologists use advanced imaging technologies to diagnose and treat many conditions. Imaging techniques include X-rays, magnetic resonance imaging (MRIs), ultrasounds and more.
Indiana University Health Bloomington Hospital Radiology & Imaging is a recognized leader in delivering medical imaging services using the lowest doses of radiation possible for the most accurate results. We offer a comprehensive range of services using the latest technology to provide patients and referring physicians with accurate diagnostic evaluation.
Our physicians have advanced education in reading these highly specialized images to determine an accurate diagnosis, such as the extent of an injury or the detection of abnormalities. Radiologists interpret the results, consult with your healthcare team and send a report of findings to your physician.
At IU Health Bloomington Hospital, we use leading-edge imaging technology in our operating rooms so surgeons can perform minimally invasive procedures. These procedures have fewer risks than open surgeries and help you recover faster with less pain.
Through our partnership with the Indiana University School of Medicine, we conduct research into new imaging techniques that can lead to more accurate diagnoses and less-invasive treatments.
IU Health Bloomington Hospital Radiology & Imaging provides a full range of imaging procedures including:
- Computed tomography (CT)
- Digital mammography
- Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
- Nuclear medicine
- Interventional radiology
Through a collaborative partnership, IU Health Bloomington Hospital, the Bloomington Hospital Foundation and Southern Indiana Radiological Associates provide digital mammography to enhance the quality mammography services already available in our community.
- Is usually quicker than a traditional film-based exam, and there is less of a chance you will be called back to retake your images. It is a better overall experience for the patient.
- Allows your radiologist to enhance and read the images in ways that were not possible previously. Digital images give better visibility of the breast, particularly near the skin line, chest wall and especially in women with dense breast tissue.
- Is helpful for women with implants and for imaging patients with known abnormalities.
- Offers other advantages, including a lower radiation dose without a compromise in accuracy and ease of image access, transmission, retrieval and storage.
When breast cancer is found early, there are more treatment options and better odds of a full recovery. Early detection saves lives. Remember to schedule your annual mammogram.
