St. Elizabeth's offers a full spectrum of imaging services ranging from the simplest ultrasound images to the most complicated and high-tech computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and nuclear medicine. The Imaging department is committed to providing our customers with exceptional service through digital radiography. Digital radiography provides high-quality computer-generated images that are sent directly to the Picture Archival Communication System (PACS) and quickly available for review by physicians. Patients experience shorter exam times and decreased radiation dose with digital imaging when compared to convention film imaging.
The PACS combines all the diagnostic images and related reports created at the hospital and its satellite facility in O’Fallon. Images are stored in one database that is accessible to our physicians, whenever and wherever it is needed. This means that your physician has a complete picture of your medical history in minutes.
