Radiology & Imaging

State-of-the-Art Diagnostic Procedures

Radiology and imaging is a medical field primarily focused on diagnostic testing and procedures. It is called “imaging” because it involves the use of x-rays, cameras, and other technology to obtain images of the body’s internal structures.

Ridgecrest Regional Hospital is a leader in medical imaging in the Southern Sierra Region as we have introduced innovative technology to the area. No longer do residents of the Kern County area have to travel far for high-quality, comprehensive imaging services. We offer a wide variety of state-of-the-art diagnostic procedures.

Our Technology & Services

From X-rays and Ct scans to mammograms, our hospital is equipped with sophisticated technology designed for quality and efficiency. We have a team of radiologists trained to use these innovative devices and carefully analyze results for any abnormalities or signs of injury.

Our facility hosts the GE Signa HDxT 1.5T MRI and the GE Optima 660 CT system. The new GE Optima 660 CT system provides high-resolution images and faster exam time that ultimately lead to shorter breath holds and more comfort for our patients. Most importantly, however, the new system offers ASIR low dose technology that allows us to optimize (or lower) radiation dose level for all exams, some in excess of 60%.

We offer the following diagnostic imaging services:
  • X-Rays
  • CT Scans
  • Advanced MRI / MRA
  • Orthopedics & Sports imaging
  • Pediatric imaging
  • Vascular imaging
  • Bone Densitometry
  • Oncologic imaging

We offer the following women’s imaging services:

The medical imaging team focuses on individual health care needs and our board certified radiologist, licensed technologists, registered nurses and support staff are dedicated to making you feel comfortable and confident through your radiology examination. Our radiology team has come to RRH with training and experience from institutions such as Baylor University Medical Center, Loma Linda, UC Davis, Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles, Mayo Clinic, KMC Bakersfield, and Staten Island University Medical Center.
