Advanced Diagnostic and Screening Imaging Technology

Medical imaging is an essential part of healthcare. Physicians commonly use imaging technology to diagnose acute health conditions. They also use it to monitor and track the progress of a baby’s development during pregnancy. Additionally, medical imaging serves as an important screening tool to detect and diagnose unknown illnesses that can only be seen at the earliest stages through preventive screenings.

In addition to our main Thomasville clinic, we also offer imaging and radiology services across other clinics in South Georgia. This includes Archbold Brooks, Archbold Grady, and Archbold Mitchell.

Imaging Services We Offer

Archbold offers a variety of advanced imaging services for patients across South Georgia. The most common imaging services we provide for our patients include:

  • X-ray: X-ray exams allow radiologists to take internal pictures of your body using small doses of radiation. This test is often used to confirm bone fractures, but may also be used to diagnose pneumonia, blocked intestines, and other illnesses.

  • CT: CT (computed tomography) scans combine x-ray with computer technology to create detailed two- or three-dimensional pictures of the body. During a CT scan, you lie still on a table as the machine encircles you to take pictures in sections. Computers then reconstruct these images into a multi-dimensional model of your body. CT scans are often used to gain a better view of soft tissues, such as those in the chest and stomach.

  • MRI: MRI, or magnetic resonance imaging, employs large magnets and radio frequencies, instead of radiation, in order to create images in greater detail and clarity than other imaging tests. MRI tests can help doctors diagnose or better understand a wide variety of health issues that affect the brain, heart, skeleton, and a variety of other areas of the body.

  • PET: A positron emission tomography (PET) scan is an imaging test that produces images of your organs and tissues at work. The test uses a safe, injectable radioactive chemical called a radiotracer and a device called a PET scanner. Healthcare providers frequently use PET scans to help diagnose cancer and assess cancer treatment.

In addition to x-rays, CT scans, and MRIs, we also offer these additional imaging services:

  • Fluoroscopy
  • 3D Mammography
  • Nuclear Medicine Testing (bone scans, HIDA scans, etc.)
  • Ultrasound
  • Women’s Imaging Services

Most imaging services require an order from your physician. To schedule your imaging service at Archbold, please call 229.228.2000.
