RADIOLOGY

A picture is worth a thousand words. No truer statement could be made than when discussing radiology. Diagnostic imaging is a valuable tool doctors use to diagnose and treat many illnesses. It provides a way for the physician to see what is happening inside the body and devise a treatment plan to help you on your way to recovery. We at Eureka Springs Hospital understand the need for state of the art equipment as well as compassionate and caring staff to assist in this process for our patients.

Our dedicated radiology staff is here to provide you with the best possible care while utilizing the newest technologies which offer the most detailed views in the least amount of time. Images are acquired and sent to the radiologist for interpretation. With our PACS (Picture Archiving and Communications System), this step is almost instantaneous, allowing a diagnosis to be obtained quickly. Our goal is to have you on your way to treatment as soon as possible.
