Radiology and Imaging Services in Haxtun

Haxtun Health Radiology offers a full-service menu for a variety of imaging needs. Here, you will find our equipment is top of the line, and our professional radiology team offers caring service that’s supportive of each patient’s individual situation.

Haxtun Health’s Radiology department is not just used for emergency services or referrals from Haxtun Health providers. Local residents can use Haxtun Health Radiology for scans they need done prior to surgical procedures done on the Front Range.

We are happy to accommodate for scans to be performed locally so that our community doesn’t have to drive far for something they can have done close to home.

Diagnostic Imaging Services Offered:

This radiology test provides images helpful in detecting fractures, dislocations, infections, arthritis and many other conditions that aid in accurate diagnosis.

A DEXA scan usually assesses or measures bone density. It can also be used to determine body composition, such as the percentage of lean muscle and fat.

The dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) scan uses two low-energy X-ray beams, which doctors direct toward the bones. Using dual-energy levels separates the images into two components, including soft tissue and bone.

When determining whether a person has low bone density or whether their condition is getting worse, a DEXA scan tends to be more accurate than a typical X-ray because it can detect even small changes in bone loss.

An ultrasound is a noninvasive medical test that displays images of the body using sound waves. Haxtun Health offers both general diagnostic and vascular ultrasound examinations.

Our ultrasound machine is often used by our Specialty Clinic for certain procedures.

An MRI is a noninvasive medical test that providers use to diagnose and treat medical conditions. MRIs use a powerful magnetic field and pulsing radio frequency to produce detailed imaging of tissues, ligaments, tendons, organs and virtually all other internal body structures.

MRIs do not use radiation to produce an image.

An echo, also known as an echocardiogram, is a type of ultrasound examination that uses sound waves to create moving images of the heart. Echoes can also pinpoint areas of the heart that aren’t contracting because of poor blood flow or injury from a previous heart attack.

A CT Scan, also known as CAT Scan, provides detailed 2D images of nearly all parts of the body. Advanced software also enables 3D reconstruction of some scans.

Haxtun Health partners with St. Joseph Mobile Mammography service twice a year to offer these services on the Haxtun Health campus. The mobile unit is typically here in early spring and fall.
