Blessing Imaging Services
- Radiography and Fluoroscopy (X-ray) are forms of radiation that make images of bones, organs and other internal features. Fluoroscopy uses a continuous or pulsed X-ray beam to create moving images of working body structures. Learn more.
- Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) provides images of internal organs, blood vessels, muscles, joints, tumors, areas of infection, and more—without using any radiation. The excellent quality of MRI images provides early detection of many conditions so treatment can be more effective. In many cases, MRI gives different information about structures in the body than can be seen with an X-ray, ultrasound, or computed tomography (CT) scan. Learn more.
- Computed Axial Tomography (CT Scan) is an X-ray technique that produces more detailed images of internal organs or bones than conventional X-ray. A CT is a form of x-ray combined with computer processing to create cross-sectional images of the body which can be used to help diagnose multiple diseases or injuries. Blessing has trained registered technologists and is ACR (American College of Radiology) or DMV-GL accredited. Learn more.
- Nuclear Medicine is a specialized area of imaging that uses very small amounts of radioactive material (isotopes) to examine organ function and structure. These materials may be injected through an IV. It is often used to diagnose and manage the treatment of cancer, heart disease, brain disorders, gastrointestinal disorders, lung disorders, bone disorders, kidney and thyroid disorders, and more. Learn More.
- Ultrasound uses sound waves to produce images of the inside of your body. It is often used to help diagnose the cause of pain, swelling, or infection in internal organs or to examine a baby in utero. Doctors also use the technology to guide biopsies, diagnose heart conditions, or make assessments after a heart attack. Ultrasound is safe, noninvasive, and does not use ionizing radiation. Learn more.
- Mammography is offered at multiple locations throughout the region including the Blessing Breast Center, Blessing Health Hannibal and Illini Community Hospital. It is an X-ray of the breasts performed to detect breast lumps when they are too small to be detected by physical examination. These small lumps can be the first finding of early-stage breast cancer. The Breast Center is equipped with both 2D and 3D digital mammography units, stereotactic breast biopsy equipment, and ultrasound. It also provides bone-density examinations. Learn more.
