The Radiology department at Tyler County Hospital has over 20 years of technical experience. Due to the diversity of the staff, the department is able to offer a variety of diagnostic services including x-rays, cat scans, and ultrasounds. These services are offered in the Emergency Department, the In-patient Wing as well as on an outpatient basis. With the availability of a portable x-ray unit, these services can be performed at the bedside when necessary. Weekly, vascular and cardiac ultrasound technicians are available to perform these specialty tests.
All of our technologists are licensed by our national society The American Registry of Radiological Technologists (ARRT). ARRT’s credentials assure patients that Registered Technologists who conduct medical imagining and radiation therapy procedures have completed the prescribed educational preparation, passed the appropriate exams and pledged to abide by stringent ethical requirements all of which assist them in delivering safe and effective patient care. ARRT’s ensure their continuing education and ongoing ethical compliance by requiring annual registration of certificates.
The American Registry of Radiological Technologists recognizes individuals qualified in the use of ionizing and non-ionizing radiation to promote high standards of patient care in diagnostic medical imaging, interventional procedures, and therapeutic treatment. Headquartered in St. Paul, Minnesota, it tests, certifies and annually registers more than 226,000 radiological technologists across the United States.
To us, the community is an extension of our family. The friendly radiology staff desire to see each one well taken care of and are here to help meet their needs.
