Radiology Services

These exams are performed at the various BryanLGH Health System locations throughout Lincoln.  Lincoln Radiology Group’s board certified radiologists are on site at these locations to interpret your studies and get results back to your physicians as efficiently as possible.

Digital Mammography

Digital mammography with Computer Aided Detection (CAD) raises the standard of breast care in our community. Digital mammography uses specially designed digital detectors to produce an image that can be displayed on a high-resolution computer monitor. CAD is used to assist in the detection of breast lesions such as microcalcifications. Digital mammography provides better visualization […]

MRI – Magnetic Resonance Imaging

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) uses radio waves and a strong magnetic field to produce detailed images of body tissues and organs. 1.5T high field Open MRI is able to accommodate patients up to 550 pounds without sacrificing image resolution. Other open field MRI’s use low-field magnets to accommodate claustrophobic or large patients, which limits diagnostic […]

PET / CT

CT creates images with anatomical detail, however shows nothing of the living processes taking place in the body. PET images reveal the biology and metabolism in the body, but lack the detail to pinpoint the exact location of these functions. PET/CT together provides anatomically detailed information where a CT scan is merged with the biological […]

Computed Tomography

Computer Tomography (CT) uses special x-ray equipment to obtain image date of the body. A computer processes the information to show a cross-section of structures of the body: organs, muscles, bone and blood vessels. The innovative design of current CT scanners 64-Slice CT provides optimal patient comfort while providing outstanding diagnostic information. Features of such […]

Ultrasound

Diagnostic ultrasound, also called sonography, is a way to create images of anatomic areas for the purposes of measurement or diagnosis. Ultrasound images are captured in real- time showing structure and movement of the body’s internal organs. It uses no radiation but instead transmits high frequency sound waves of the body, which are processed by […]

Nuclear Medicine

Nuclear medicine examinations evaluate both body anatomy and function. The images are produced by x-ray emissions from radioactive substances given to the patient, either intravenously or by mouth. Generally, radiation to the patient is similar to that resulting from standard X-ray exam. During the imaging you will be lying on a table while a “camera” […]

Bone Densitometry

Bone Densitometry or (DEXA) dual-energy-x-ray-absorptiometry is an enhanced form of x-ray technology that is used to measure bone loss. DEXA is used to diagnose osteoporosis, a condition that more often affects women after menopause but may also be found in men. Osteoporosis involves a gradual loss of calcium, causing the bones to become thinner, more […]

Diagnostic X-ray & Fluoroscopy

X-Ray What are X-Ray studies? X-ray (or radiography) is the most commonly performed diagnostic imaging examination. X-rays are a form of energy that pass through the body and strike a film to create an image of your body. X-rays are safe when properly used under the supervision of a trained and certified physician. X-rays are […]
