X-ray (Routine Radiology)
St Elizabeth Healthcare’s professional radiographers are all licensed by the State of Kentucky and certified by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists.
At St. Elizabeth Healthcare, we subscribe to the “Image Gently” and “Image Wisely”
philosophies. This means we are dedicated to providing the highest quality images, infant to adult, at the lowest radiation dose achievable.
St. Elizabeth Healthcare Routine Radiology utilizes both computed radiography (CR) and digital radiography (DR). Computed and Digital Radiology both use a lower dose of radiation than conventional film to obtain an image and compute it into a readable image for a physician to diagnosis and treat patients. DR is a directly captured image, where CR must first be processed. Both are high quality and are then digitally stored on our Picture Archiving Communication System (PACS). Images are readily available to any healthcare facility or physician within the network.
