The Diagnostic Imaging Department is made up of several different modalities. Here at Crittenden Community Hospital, we have the following services:
Diagnostic Imaging, (general X-ray procedures)
Mammography Accredited by the American College
Ultrasound procedures (including abdomen, OB,
and vascular studies)
Nuclear Medicine (on Tuesdays and Wednesdays)
Echocardiography (Monday through Friday)
Imaging exams are interpreted by the Pennyrile Radiology Group of Hopkinsville, Kentucky. This group includes the credentialed staff of Dr. Michael Clark, MD; Dr. C.C. Chapman, MD; and Dr. Casey Hines, MD. Images are transmitted to the radiologist via PACS (Picture Archiving and Communication System). Patients who request copies of their exams for continued treatment and care will receive a CD with images that can be viewed by virtually any computer.
Technologists on staff have completed an accredited Radiography program and successfully passed a national board exam. Staff are required to receive CEU's (Continuing Education Units) to help improve upon education they already possess.
The Diagnostic Imaging Department also serves as a clinical site for the radiography program of West Kentucky Community and Technical College of Paducah, Kentucky. Students have an opportunity to come and learn about the everyday flow of a Radiology Department with qualified technologists that can help in their scholastic studies. Crittenden Community Hospital and Crittenden County High School also partner together to allow high school seniors the opportunity to shadow various areas in health care in order to help students make their educational and career choices.
