Advanced Tools for your Diagnosis
Proper treatment of injury and illnesses relies on the correct diagnosis of a patient's underlying condition. UnityPoint Health – Keokuk is accredited by the American College of Radiology and provides state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging. We are equipped with high-quality and effective diagnostic imaging technology including digital mammography, bone densitometry, MRI, CT, ultrasound, nuclear medicine and general digital radiology.
Continuing our tradition of providing advanced technology to our patients, UnityPoint Health – Keokuk utilizes PACS (Picture Archiving & Communication System). PACS allows multiple users (radiologists, physicians, and other health care professionals) at surrounding hospitals to access images and information simultaneously, increasing the ease and efficiency to which consultations can occur between medical staff and radiologists.
A patient's comfort is as important to us as the level of expertise we offer. We understand that many diagnostic procedures, and the reasons for having them, may be stressful. For this reason, our knowledgeable technologists and staff perform each test with personal care and attention, taking time to educate on each procedure so you will know what to anticipate every step of the way. We encourage patients to ask questions if they want more information about a specific process or procedure.
To save you time, pre-registration can be completed online. Pre-registration must be completed 48 hours prior to your scheduled appointment.
A non-invasive test utilizing digital sensors to portray the image of the internal body part.
CT Scan (Computed Tomography)
A test using a small dose of radiation to look at internal organs, bone, soft tissue and blood vessels in several cross sectional images.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
A non-invasive test using a magnetic field and radio waves to produce detailed images of the body's organs and structures.
An imaging test utilized to visualize the structure and function of an organ, tissue, bone or system of the body.
A procedure which allows the radiologist to view the x-ray image more closely, as the image can be displayed on a high-resolution computer monitor. Digital mammography takes less than half the time of traditional film-based exams.
A test, similar to an x-ray, which measures the density of bone. It's used to primarly detect osteoporosis.
