Because our primary goal at Delhi Hospital has always been to deliver the highest quality care to our patients, we have added digital mammography to our women's health diagnostic services. We have chosen the Selenia™ Digital Mammgrophy system from Hologic because we believe that it offers the best technology available. Mammograms play a central part in the early detection of breast cancer because they can detect changes in the breast that are too small or subtle to be felt, but may be early signs of cancer. Selenia digital mammography uses computers and specially designed digital detectors to produce an image that can be displayed on a high-resolution computer monitor, and that are transmitted and stored just like computer files. Selenia provides high quality breast images that allow the technologist to zoom in for close-ups of specific areas of interest and even adjust brightness and contrast.

Computerized Axial Tomography (CT Scanning) is proudly offered by the Radiology Department at Delhi Hospital and utilize the GE Bright Speed Elite 16-slice computerized scanner to deliver high resolution imaging for our patients. CT Scanning is a fast and painless procedure that is very useful to patients due to the low amounts of radiation that is exposed during the scan. These advanced imaging capabilities allow our Radiology Staff to produce multiple images of all areas of the body at once, such as soft tissue, bone and blood vessels. CT Scans allow radiologist to quickly diagnose tumors, blood clots and other abnormalities. Our Radiology Department is committed to providing our community and surrounding members with state-of-the-art equipment to better meet the needs of our patients.

Bone Density testing is a safe, non-invasive test that is most commonly recommended for those who are likely to develop Osteoporosis. Delhi Hospital's Radiology Department uses the GE Lunar Prodigy Densitometer Machine because it was designed to look beyond the bone mineral density and even has the ability to detect subtle bone changes. Providing our patients with high quality bone densitometry equipment allows us to deliver fast scans and produce consistent, accurate results. Osteoporosis is a serious and common disease that can be present within your body for years and years without your knowledge. The disease is silent and is usually only screened for when a bone fractures. Bone health awareness is an important issue and our health care professionals encourage you to boost your bone health by asking your doctor if you are at risk of developing osteporosis. Osteporosis can be effectively treated and managed if it detected and diagnosed.

X-rays are the most common and frequently used form of medical imaging that can be utilized for routine or emergency use. X-rays are produced with a small amount of radiation and allow our staff to diagnose and treat many health issues. Delhi Hospital offers Routine Digital X-Rays to patients in order to improve patient care and provide better image quality. Digital X-Rays allow us to view x-ray results as a two dimensional image, requires less radiation to produce a higher quality x-ray and allows our staff to examine patients in the most precise way possible. Our Radiology Staff is dedicated to providing patients with access to fast, accurate x-ray services and ensuring patients the most comfortable experience.

Ultrasound (also known as sonography) is one of our services provided that uses sound waves to create images of the body. Unlike our other diagnostic imaging services, Ultrasound uses no radiation and is a painless procedure. Real-time Images produced through ultrasounds can show structure and movement of the body's internal organs, allowing us to help diagnose and treat an array of medical conditions. Ultrasounds are performed using the LOGIQ E9 Ultrasound Imaging System that is a powerful and versatile imaging machine to help us meet a wide variety of your imaging needs. It allows us to acquire images quickly, achieve deep penetration to obtain image uniformity from the near to far field, and improve image clarity.
