About our services

Using advanced testing and imaging technology, our Medical Imaging technologists can produce highly accurate views. Tests performed will depend on the patient’s symptoms and the physician’s recommendations.

Because these images are critical in providing the best treatment and care, every Medical Imaging technician is registered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists. And, all radiologists are board certified.

Combined, our level of expertise and equipment ensure that accurate diagnoses and effective treatment will follow.

Types of Medical Imaging

  • Angiography: Angiography involves injecting a material that can be seen on X-ray into one of your arteries.
  • Catheterization: Catheterization is an important tool for diagnosing and treating heart conditions. 
  • CT (CAT Scan): Computed tomography (CT or CAT scans) uses X-ray equipment to take images inside the body, then produces a cross-section of the body using computer processing. CT imaging can show several types of tissue at once.
  • CT 64-Slice Scanner: This CAT scan combines superb image quality with remarkable speed. It can produce detailed pictures of any organ in a few seconds and provide sharp, clear, three-dimensional images, including 3-D views of the blood vessels in an instant. This 64-slice scanner can gather a high-resolution image of a heart, brain or a pair of lungs in about five seconds. This technology has been particularly exciting for studying the beating heart, but also has a significant impact on cancer diagnosis and treatment as well.
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (3-Tesla MRI): With a magnet strength of 3-Tesla, or 3T, this new MRI is the most powerful scanner available to patients today. This technology is unique to Agnesian HealthCare and Fond du Lac. We are one of only a few in the state and one of the first in the country to have this type of technology. This MRI improves the accuracy of diagnoses and treatments of broad categories of diseases, including stroke, brain tumors, epilepsy, musculoskeletal and hear disease. (While X-rays are best for showing bones, MRI creates pictures that can show differences between healthy and unhealthy tissue.)
  • Nuclear Medicine: Nuclear medicine uses radioactive substances to create images of the body and treat disease.
  • Ultrasound: Ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves and a computer to create images of blood vessels, tissues and organs inside the body.
  • X-ray: X-rays are a form of electromagnetic radiation. In a medical setting, X-rays take images of the body that can help diagnose problems.
