Our Radiology Services

CT Scan
(Computed Tomography)

Computed Tomography is a sophisticated form of x-ray imaging that provides pictures of the body in a series of slices. A CT scan shows clear images of bone, internal organs, muscles and blood vessels which allows doctors to distinguish between normal, diseased, or injured tissue.

(Bone Density)

DEXA scans measure your bone density with a low dose of radiation, which is interpreted by sophisticated computer analysis. Your test results will assist your physician in determining whether you need treatment for bone loss.

Diagnostic Radiology

An x-ray image is produced when a small amount of radiation passes through the body. Your provider may order an x-ray to help diagnose an injury or disease in nearly any part of the body.

Pelvic X-Ray

This procedure uses very low doses of radiation to obtain images of the breasts, allowing doctors to detect small cancers even before they can be felt.


MRI provides excellent images without radiation exposure by using a super conductive electromagnet, radio waves and sophisticated computer software to generate and enhance images. The result is an unprecedented view of internal organs, body structure and systems which provide detailed images needed to make an accurate diagnosis. 

Brain Scan
Nuclear Medicine

Nuclear medicine comprises diagnostic examinations that result in images of body anatomy and function. The images are developed based on the detection of energy emitted from a radioactive substance given to the patient, either intravenously or by mouth. Generally, radiation to the patient is similar to that resulting from standard x-ray examinations.


Ultrasound uses a hand-held probe to send high frequency sound waves into your body, then sophisticated software displays an image of the body’s interior by the rate at which the echoes return to the probe.


We offer online sharing of your medical images using Nuance Powershare. This service allows us to share images with your provider in a secure and convenient way!


All imaging will be sent to the physicians of Manhattan Radiology to be read and reported. Your ordering provider will have your report within 24 to 48 hours. Your provider should contact you with your results.


All services require a written order from a physician in good standing and licensed to practice medicine in the State of Kansas.
