The Truman Medical Centers Department of Radiology provides high quality, comprehensive, and
compassionate patient care. Our department provides services 24-hours-per-day,
7-days-a-week. We offer digital mammography, ultrasonography, nuclear
medicine, and magnetic resonance.
In addition, TMC is one of only a few hospitals in the
country to acquire an important new tool for diagnosing illness in patients:
a 128-slice Computed Tomography or CT Scanner. Where other CT scanners can
take well over 20 minutes to complete a scan for trauma, this one can
complete the task in about five. TMC is one of only a handful of hospitals
in the nation to acquire such a scanner, which offers two important benefits
in addition to speed. It provides exceptionally precise images (most CT
scanners process four to 64 slices) and does so with minimal radiation
exposure to the patient.
In addition to its use in trauma cases, the scanner is
also used to evaluate the vascular system to detect blockages and other
abnormalities and to plan surgeries.
