Glacial Ridge Hospital is equipped with advanced diagnostic imaging technology, which enables us to diagnose illnesses and injuries quickly and efficiently. Today’s modern diagnostic testing is highly sophisticated when compared to the x-rays of earlier medical care. Utilizing state-of-the-art technology can lead to early diagnosis of diseases, such as breast cancer—making the difference in helping your physician to determine the best outcome and treatment for you.
When it comes to performing diagnostic testing, our knowledgeable technologists and staff provide personal care and attention, taking time to explain each procedure so you will know what to anticipate every step of the way. We encourage you to ask questions (“What is a CT scan, EKG, MRI, etc.?”) if anything is unclear or if you want more information about a specific process or procedure.

Mammograms and breast cancer screening
In most cases, a mammogram can identify an abnormal breast mass as much as two years before it can be detected by touch. Visit our Breast Health page for screening guidelines, the importance of early detection of breast cancer, and information about breast density, mammograms, and screening.
GRHS provides Bone Mineral Density testing in-house to assess the risk for osteoporotic fractures. The results help your doctor manage your health in terms of osteoporosis, abdominal aortic calcifications, vertebral fractures, obesity and more. Ask your provider if a bone density test is right for you. For more details, read our Bone Densitometry brochure.
