Outpatient Diagnostics - Phoebe Radiology
Radiologists at Phoebe use cutting-edge technologies to allow them to examine images of a patient's organs, bones and soft tissue.
Radiology is the branch of medicine that creates images of the body's internal structure. These images allow doctors to more accurately diagnose ailments and see how effectively different parts of the body are functioning.
Diagnostic imaging began over 100 years ago with the discovery of X-ray imaging, but in recent years, combining computers into the imaging process has produced technologies such as CT, MRI and PET scanning, with images many times more detailed and accurate than only 15 years ago.
Dramatic advances are being made almost yearly. Doctors at hospitals that stay out on the cutting edge of this field have access to equipment and techniques that allow them to make more accurate decisions on how to treat illnesses and injuries.
As a major heart and cancer treatment center, Phoebe is one of the hospitals on the leading edge of diagnostics, reinvesting every year in state-of-the-art equipment and bringing the best radiology talent to Southwest Georgia.
