SERVICES AVAILABLE


Digital Radiography

Digital Radiology is an accurate and filmless process that is viewed on a computer screen. The digital images can then be instantly available to local physicians as well as other facilities.

Ultrasound
Ultrasound is a test that uses reflected sound waves to produce an image of organs and other structures in the body. It does not use X-rays or other types of possibly harmful radiation.

Digital Mammography
Rangely District Hospital is an ACR Accredited Mammography Facility. Mammography is a specific type of imaging that uses a low-dose x-ray for the examination of breasts for the early detection of breast cancer in women.
Early detection is the best protection against breast cancer.


CAT Scan
Computed Tomography (CT) is a method of body imaging in which a thin X-ray beam rotates around the patient. A computer analyzes the data to construct a cross-sectional image. These images can be stored, viewed on a monitor, or printed on film. In addition, three-dimensional models of organs can be created by stacking the individual images, or "slices

MRI
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a test that uses a magnetic field and pulses of radio wave energy to provide pictures of organs and structures inside the body.

C-Arm Fluoroscopy
C-arm fluoroscope is a device used by qualified physicians to guide a needle to a specific area while watching that needle on a live x-ray screen. Rangely District hospital has a dedicated procedure room that gives us greater flexibility with our patients and allows us to offer patients advanced injection techniques.


Bone Density
Also called a Dexa scan, is a scan to determine those patients at risk of osteoporosis.

Osteoporosis is a disease that causes bones to become more fragile and more likely to break. This is measured by how many grams of calcium and other bone minerals are packed into a segment of bone. A bone density test is a fairly accurate predictor of your risk of fracture
