Types of Imaging Tests

Saint Francis Hospital South’s Imaging Department offers a full array of testing performed on-site. Radiology services encompass the disciplines of clinical imaging, interventional radiology and nuclear medicine. Radiology supports diagnostics and treatment of illness of inpatients, outpatients and emergency patients.

Patients have access to highly skilled radiologists and technologists at both Saint Francis Hospital South and the Warren Clinic Medical Building in Broken Arrow.

Specialized Services

  • Diagnostic Radiography
    Diagnostic radiography is the medical science of producing images (predominately X-rays) of the human body, which can be used to make a diagnosis.

  • Computed Tomography
    Computed tomography (CT) is a diagnostic procedure utilizing special X-ray equipment to obtain cross-sectional pictures of the body. The CT computer displays these pictures as detailed images of organs, bones and other tissues.

    Advanced technology available to our patients includes the “low dose” 64-slice CT scanner, which allows for high quality images with reduced levels of radiation.

  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging
    Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a medical imaging technique used to visualize internal structures of the body in detail. MRI makes use of the property of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) to image nuclei of atoms inside the body.

    Our imaging facilities are equipped with the most advanced MRI technology including large bore 1.5 Tesla magnets.

  • Ultrasound
    Diagnostic ultrasound, also called sonography or diagnostic medical sonography, is an imaging method that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce relatively precise images of structures within your body.

    The images produced during an ultrasound examination often provide valuable information for diagnosing and treating a variety of diseases and conditions. The registered sonographers at Saint Francis Hospital South and the Warren Clinic Medical Building in Broken Arrow are highly skilled at performing a broad spectrum of adult, pediatric and infant studies.

  • Nuclear Medicine
    Nuclear medicine imaging is unique because it provides doctors with information about both structure and function. Using very small amounts of radioactive materials to diagnose and treat disease, nuclear medicine imaging procedures often identify abnormalities very early in the progress of a disease – long before many medical problems are apparent with other diagnostic tests.

    Saint Francis Hospital South’s Imaging Department offers a full array of comprehensive nuclear imaging.

  • Invasive and Fluoroscopic Imaging
    Fluoroscopy is a type of medical imaging that shows a continuous X-ray image on a monitor, much like an X-ray “movie.” It is used to diagnose or treat patients by displaying the movement of a body part or of an instrument or dye (contrast agent) through the body.

    During a fluoroscopy procedure, an X-ray beam is passed through the body. The image is transmitted to a monitor so that the body part and its motion can be seen in detail.

    Our facilities offer multiple invasive procedures using multiple modalities and medical specialties.

  • Mammography Screening
    A mammogram is an X-ray picture of the breasts. It is used to find tumors and to help physicians tell the difference between non-cancerous (benign) and cancerous (malignant) disease.

    For more information about mammography screening services or to make an appointment visit Saint Francis Breast Health Services.
