Services at Mary Rutan Hospital
Computed Tomography or CT scanning is offered as a diagnostic tool in radiology to examine the head, neck, chest, abdomen, pelvis and bony structures of the body. It provides a detailed look inside the human body and is a vital diagnostic tool in medicine today. Contrast media is sometimes given orally, through an IV, or sometimes both, to help enhance the detail for the physicians reading these studies and to help provide a quality result for the patient.
Our qualified CT staff is available 24 hours a day to accommodate the needs of both patients and physicians. In most cases, the actual CT scan procedure takes less than 15 minutes to perform.
The new nuclear medicine camera serves a broad range of applications in general nuclear medicine for a more accurate and rapid diagnosis. The gamma camera is equipped with digital high definition detector technology for high image quality.
Mary Rutan Hospital offers general small parts, abdominal and OB-GYN ultrasound procedures. The Sequoia ultrasound system represents the most advanced technology in ultrasound imaging. Ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to produce images.
Each unique technology and innovation is designed to help the physician make more confident and accurate diagnoses, delivering excellent image quality and enhancing workflow, across a broad range of patient types and application.

Osteoporosis, the most common human bone disease, occurs when bone resorption exceeds bone formation, resulting in reduced bone strength, poor bone quality and an increased risk of bone fracture. The Mary Rutan Hospital Crawfis Imaging Center offers bone densitometry with high quality and high speed.
