Services

Radiology Services include:

  • CT Scan: A CT or CAT scan, also known as a computed tomography scan, is a medical imaging method that uses special X-ray equipment to obtain cross-sectional pictures of the body.
  • Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA): commonly used to diagnose osteoporosis and to assess an individual’s risk for developing fractures
  • 2D and 3D Digital Mammography: Digital Mammography is provided in Radiology's women's services area in Campbell County Memorial Hospital. Amenities include private waiting area, relaxing decor, mood lighting, background music, heated spa robes and fresh infused water.
  • Digital x-ray
  • Lung Cancer Screening: Are you at risk for lung cancer? Campbell County Health Radiology offers lung cancer screenings.
  • MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging): A way to image the inside of the body without the use of x-rays. The exam utilizes radiowaves along with a strong magnetic field (instead of radiation) to create images of the soft tissues in the body like tendons, muscles, and ligaments.
  • Nuclear Medicine: Nuclear medicine involves the use of radioactive materials, or isotopes, to obtain specific diagnostic information. These isotopes transmit a pattern of rays representing the organ size, shape and function. The rays are detected by a special camera which, when coupled with a computer, produces a characteristic image on a screen. Nuclear medicine tests differ from most other imaging modalities in that diagnostic tests primarily show the physiological function of the system being investigated as opposed to traditional anatomical imaging such as CT or MRI. Nuclear medicine imaging studies are generally more organ or tissue specific (e.g.: lungs scan, heart scan, bone scan, brain scan, etc.) than those in conventional radiology imaging, which focus on a particular section of the body (e.g.: chest X-ray, abdomen/pelvis CT scan, head CT scan, etc.).
  • PET CT Scan: Positron Emission Tomography (PET) helps healthcare providers detect cancer and assess the effectiveness of treatment. The new PET CT provides the potential to help more local cancer patients in a comfortable, supportive environment. Call 307-688-1950 to schedule.
  • Ultrasound: Ultrasound (also called sonography) is a diagnostic medical procedure that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce dynamic visual images of organs, tissues or blood flow inside the body. The high-frequency sound waves are transmitted to the area of interest and the returning echoes recorded. This type of procedure is often referred to as a sonogram or ultrasound scan. Selected images are used by an interpreting physician to make a final diagnosis.

3D Mammography available in Gillette

Bea Pfenning has been an advocate for breast cancer screening even before her first mammogram at age 35. She has a family history of breast cancer-her mother, grandmother and great-grandmother were all diagnosed, causing her to be cautious.

“It’s really scary when you find a breast lump when you’re 35, and you have a set of twins that are only one,” remembers Bea.

After talking with her doctor, Bea decided to have a three-dimensional, or 3D mammogram instead. Also referred to as Tomosynthesis, 3D mammography lets radiologists examine the tissue - one thin layer at a time. “It is a technology that is saving lives,” says Bea.

Bea used to travel out of town to have this higher level of screening, but starting in July CCH patients will have the option to get a 3D mammogram at the Campbell County Memorial Hospital Radiology department. Read more here.
