Types of Diagnostics Available at Jackson County Regional Health Center


MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) — MRIs produce detailed images of your body, especially “soft tissue” like nerves, ligaments and the brain. No special preparation is required, though certain patients may not be eligible.  Coming soon — in-house MRI services.

Ultrasound — Your doctor may request an ultrasound to review pregnancy progress, determine blood vessel function or location or examine your thyroid, among many other purposes. It’s a safe and relatively comfortable procedure.

Mammograms — Early detection of breast cancer is so important to preventing advanced disease and death. Mammograms are simple x-rays that help detect tumors and differentiate between benign and malignant diseases.

CT, or CAT Scan — CAT scans are a form of x-ray that is commonly used to examine internal organ areas, fractures or head trauma. In some cases, you may receive a contrast solution to better highlight the area or organs to be examined.

Echocardiogram — Using high-frequency sound waves, this non-invasive procedure creates images of your heart, especially to evaluate the heart walls and chambers as well as leaks or suspected tumors, and to monitor after a heart attack.

Nuclear Medicine — This unique diagnostic tool uses a minute amount of radioactive material and special equipment to detect and sometimes treat diseases. It’s effective for identifying heart disease, cancer, arthritis and infections.

Bone Densitometry — An important tool in the diagnosis of osteoporosis — a disease that thins and weakens bone tissue, mass or density — it measures bone density in the evaluation and treatment of this widespread and debilitating disease.

Cardio Pulmonary — We offer many inpatient and outpatient services, including Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehabilitation and Cardio Pulmonary Testing.

Laboratory — We have a full menu of diagnostic and follow-up testing. All laboratory testing must have a written physician order, including diagnosis and/or symptoms which relate to the ordered tests.
