Diagnostic imaging in Ogden, Utah

At Ogden Regional Medical Center, our caregivers have a variety of advanced technologies at their fingertips. Depending on your condition, one of our digital diagnostic tools can provide the vital information your doctor needs to pinpoint a medical condition. This minimally invasive approach to identifying health concerns ensures a more precise diagnosis and quicker treatment.

Digital imaging technology significantly enhances a physician's ability to diagnose diseases or medical conditions accurately. This diagnostic tool provides sharp, detailed images of the inside of your body, internal organs and blood vessels in a remarkably short period.

Advanced imaging technology

Some of our digital imaging technologies available include:

  • Ultrasound: Utilizes high-frequency sound waves to display moving, 3D images of the inside of the body on a monitor.
  • Digital mammography: Usually takes less time than traditional film-based exams, and there is a lower radiation dose required to produce images.
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI): Can reveal medical conditions that are not easily diagnosed through an X-ray, ultrasound or computed tomography (CT) scan.
  • Nuclear medicine scanner: Employs a powerful camera to generate crystal-clear images used to quickly detect and characterize cardiac disease.
  • PET/CT scan: Combines different types of digital images to provide complete information on the size, shape and location of cancerous growths.
  • Fluoroscopy:  Obtains real-time, moving images of a patient's internal structures that can be recorded and played on a display monitor.
