Chest x-ray
Chest x-rays are the most common
radiographic exam performed

On November 8, 1895, German physics Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen (1845-1923) conducted experiments focused on light phenomena generated by discharging electrical current in vacuum glass tubes.

These trials led to the first discovery of "X-ray", a finding that the medical establishment immediately recognized as extraordinary and one that would forever change the face of medical diagnostics.

Radiography, or as it is most commonly known, an x-ray, is the oldest and most frequently used form of medical imaging and is the foundation for a myriad of applications that impact every medical specialty.

We possess a full compliment of imaging tools including:

  • Digital Radiography
  • Computed Radiography
  • Picture Archiving and Communications System (PACS)
    (allowing clinicians to view radiographic images and reports online throughout the facility)

Our staff and services are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for our inpatients and Emergency Department patients, and during normal business hours for our outpatient population.

General Diagnostic Radiology at University Hospital can be divided into 4 specialties:

  • Plain Filmis the most common and and widely available type of x-ray; usually requiring no preparation on the patients part; and, can provide provide excellent information on the diagnosis and progression of many conditions.
  • GI/GUinvolves the imaging of the soft tissue abdominal organs; frequently engages the use of a contrast agent (X-ray dye) and/or the use of a fluoroscope.
  • Trauma and Emergency Department Radiologyspecializes in diagnostic imaging for patients with severe multi-system trauma.
