We Go the Extra Mile to Make Our Hospitals Feel Just a Little More Like Home.

Our Imaging Department is open from Monday through Friday from 7:30 am to 4 pm. Emergency and General X-rays are available 24/7. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call 504.592.6577.

Diagnostic imaging, also called radiology, is intended to capture images of internal body structures to diagnose an illness or injury that is not plainly visible to the naked eye. Examples of imaging tests include general X-rays, MRI scans, CT scans, and many others. A radiologist will share their findings with the doctor who referred you for an imaging test and discuss those findings and next steps with you.

Our Imaging Services Department has the most advanced diagnostic imaging technology, including a 64-slice CT and MRI scans. Our high-quality images are interpreted by expert radiologists, offering the best chance for accurate diagnosis and treatment planning.

Our imaging services

Bone densitometry

Bone mineral scan evaluates bone mineral density is an important part of patient care and can aid in diagnosis and treatment of osteoporosis.

Computed tomography (CT) scan

Our 64-slice CT scanner is one of the most technologically advanced scanners available to date. The multi-slice images allow radiologists and the CT technologists to gain more precise views of the head, chest, abdomen, pelvis, and extremities for quicker, more accurate diagnoses.


FibroScan is a noninvasive, specialized ultrasound machine for your liver. It measures fibrosis and steatosis (fatty change) caused by liver disease.

General x-ray

X-rays, also called radiographs, are the oldest and most frequently used form of medical imaging to this day. X-rays can produce diagnostic images of the human body on film or digitally that allow doctors to view and assess broken bones or other injuries.

Interventional radiology

Interventional radiology is used to diagnose and treat patients using the least invasive techniques currently available to minimize risk to the patient and improve health outcomes. These procedures have less risk, less pain, and less recovery time compared to open surgery.


Mammography is a specific type of imaging that uses a low-dose x-ray system to examine breasts. A mammogram is used for early detection and diagnosis of breast diseases in women.

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)

The MRI uses magnets, radio waves, and computers for highly detailed images of internal organs, muscles, nerves, and bones. It is often used to diagnose orthopedic injuries, tumors, infections in the brain, spine or joints, and strokes in the early stages.

Nuclear medicine

Nuclear medicine involves the use of small amounts of radioactive materials (or tracers) to help diagnose and treat a variety of diseases. Nuclear medicine determines the cause of the medical problem based on the function of the organ, tissue, or bone.


Ultrasound services are available for sonograms, including breast, abdominal, pelvic, and gynecological exams.
