Test results can be mailed or faxed directly to physicians, which allows patients to undergo tests close to home even if their physician is outside of the community.

All normal test results are also available to patients through our patient portal.

In 2015, MDH installed a new OTC12 Digital Radiographic System in the Radiology Department.
If you need more information than an x-ray can provide, we have a 16-slice Toshiba CT scanner available 7 days a week.
A computerized tomography (CT) scan combines a series of X-ray images taken from different angles and uses computer processing to create cross-sectional images, or slices, of the bones, blood vessels and soft tissues inside your body.
With our GE film/screen mammography unit, available Monday-Thursday, we have the ability to capture high-quality images capable of detecting even subtle changes in breast tissue, allowing us to provide an earlier and more accurate diagnosis for breast cancer.
You no longer need to travel if your physician orders an MRI. Every Wednesday we are able to provide MRI services via a traveling service. This is a great option for diagnosing internal issues without the risks of radiation. With a physician order, you can schedule your MRI appointment by calling 620-873-2141.
In 2016, MDH purchased a new GE Millennium camera capable of doing heart studies, thyroid scans, bone scans, and hida (gall bladder) scans. This technology compliments our other diagnostic tests. Where an MRI or a CT scan shows us what an organ looks like, nuclear medicine is able to show us how that organ is actually functioning. This can be incredibly important when diagnosing some types of heart problems.
Our Phillips ultrasound machine is available 4 days a week Mon-Wed and Fri, and is capable of Echocardiograms, vascular ultrasounds, upper abdominal ultrasound, testicular ultrasound, renal ultrasound and bladder ultrasounds.
The sonogram/ultrasound technology uses high-frequency sound waves to make images of the internal structures and organs.
With our GE Lunar machine, we are able to offer DEXA scans to screen for osteoporosis and predict your risk of bone fractures. This can also be referred to as an osteogram, bone density test, and bone densiometry. It is not to be confused with nuclear bone scans which we also offer.
DEXA scans are available Monday-Friday.
