Radiology & Imaging

Our focus is making you comfortable while getting the very best images 

Radiographs, scans and images are important pieces of information that help doctors diagnose medical problems ranging from a broken finger to cancer. Doctors called radiologists use advanced technology to take pictures of what’s going on inside your body and share this information with your other doctors to complete the picture of your medical condition. 

IU Health is focused on two things when it comes to radiology and imaging—getting the best images possible to allow your team of doctors to help you, and ensuring your comfort and confidence during your tests. Imaging procedures sometimes require you to lie still inside a scanner for a period time. Our technologists are trained to put you at ease and help you through to provide you with a good experience. 

Imaging technology is constantly changing. The information doctors get from looking at your images looks nothing like it did even five years ago. Our radiologists consult closely with researchers and doctors at Indiana University School of Medicine to stay on the cusp of advancing technology. Through this collaboration, we are able to use the most up-to-date methods to gather information about your condition. The most accurate diagnoses mean treatment can be tailored to you.
