At Kentucky River Medical Center, diagnostic imaging is used to create a graphic depiction of the structures and functions of the body’s organs and other internal systems. These images are used to examine and diagnose certain medical conditions.
The imaging department boasts updated medical technology, including a new CT scanner, and the staff is dedicated to providing comfortable diagnosis and treatment, close to home. We offer advanced medical imaging technology for the Jackson community and surrounding area for routine, emergency and chronic condition care, and perform more than 35,000 diagnostic exams each year.
Kentucky River Medical Center’s program includes a director of radiology, ultrasound technologists, echocardiogramtechnologists, registered technologists in all modalities, and the team is cross-trained in a variety of diagnostic procedures. The department is staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week, including holidays.
