A look inside for accurate diagnosis and treatment
At Indiana University Health Goshen Hospital Imaging, we’re making disease diagnoses and treatment plans with greater accuracy and precision than ever before. That's because we have a full range of imaging capabilities – from traditional radiology to some of the most advanced technology available today. And our team focuses on unsurpassed patient care.
Our inpatient and outpatient services allow us to quickly diagnose your condition so treatment you need can begin as soon as possible. Services include:
- General imaging and diagnostic services
- Nuclear medicine
- Cardiac CTA
You or your physician may schedule an appointment. Please call IU Health Goshen Hospital Patient Access at 574.364.2400 between 8 am and 5:30 pm. Depending upon the type of test, imaging services may be performed at IU Health Goshen Hospital, The Retreat Women’s Health Center or the Outpatient Imaging Center on The Retreat campus.
General Imaging Services
We provide a full range of general radiology and imaging services for inpatient, outpatient and emergency patients, including:
- Diagnostic and routine X-rays
- Fluoroscopy (upper and lower GI studies)
- Other special procedures
Our hybrid operating/X-ray procedure room combines state-of-the-art X-ray imaging with a full operating room where we treat cardiac patients who need a surgical and radiological procedure simultaneously. Specialists work in tandem and get real-time, high-definition images as the surgery and treatment progress.
The specialized technologists in our ultrasound area use reflected sound waves to see how blood flows through a blood vessel. Procedures include routine abdominal and obstetric/gynecological studies in addition to cardiovascular techniques, such as cardiac and carotid Doppler ultrasound, echocardiography and venous Doppler ultrasound.
This painless procedure gives us a view inside the body without surgery or X-rays. We use magnetism and radio-frequency energy that provides information not possible with traditional imaging technology. IU Health Goshen Hospital's MRI unit serves adults and children who need routine MRI studies of the spine, head and any soft tissue body parts.
Noninvasive nuclear medicine imaging procedures use small amounts of radioactive materials to produce precise pictures of the imaged part of the body that doctors use to diagnose and evaluate medical conditions. At IU Health Goshen Hospital, we use nuclear medicine studies for cardiac stress tests and to scan parts of the body, including bone, thyroid, renal, gall bladder, lung and other organs, as well as for infection scans.
We also use nuclear medicine for therapeutic procedures to treat certain types of cancer and medical conditions that affect the thyroid gland.
Positron emission tomography (PET) scans and computed tomography (CT) scans use small amounts of radioactive material injected into the body to form images that doctors use to pinpoint the extent of disease. In cancer treatment, doctors combine PET and CT scans to more accurately diagnose cancer, monitor therapy and determine if cancer remains in remission after treatment.
Computerized tomography (CT), also called computed axial tomography or CAT scan, allows us to view the brain, bones, extremities, chest, abdomen and spine. Our state-of-the-art units allow us to scan patients with significantly lower levels of radiation than traditional CT scans while maintaining high-quality images. Plus, we continuously monitor radiation doses to ensure patients receive the lowest radiation dose possible for accurate, valid results.
