Diagnostic Imaging

Rooks County Health Center invests in state-of-the-art equipment with highly trained technologists to serve your every need. RCH’s digital scanning station coupled with tele-radiology allows for quick interpretations in urgent cases. Utilizing PACS (Picture Archiving and Communication System), RCH radiologists view computer generated images rather than film allowing for greater detail and more accurate readings. These electronic records are more easily shared with additional medical providers as specified for the patient.

New! On-site MRI

RCH’s new MRI and Nuclear Medicine suite puts the patient in control. Patients, with their doctors, can now schedule an exam Monday through Friday for immediate access to the latest state-of-the-art imaging systems. RCH’s MRI suite allows the patient to control their environment from the color of the room to watching the video of their choice while resting comfortably wearing noise reduction headphones. RCH’s MRI is designed to eliminate as much stress as possible. The MRI, featuring the largest bore on the market, is the only one of its kind in Kansas or Missouri. If you need an MRI scan, have a conversation with your doctor to schedule your session with Rooks County Health Center.

New! On-site Nuclear Medicine

Nuclear Medicine’s imaging is unique because it provides information not only about the structure of the organ but also how well the organ is functioning. Nuclear imaging can identify abnormalities very early in the progress of disease long before medical problems become apparent. A tracer solution is administered to a patient either by mouth or intravenously which temporarily deposits in the organ, tissue or bones to be evaluated. A special camera detects the material in the organ, bone or tissue and forms images that provide data and information that can determine the presence of disease based on biological changes, rather than changes in anatomy. For added comfort during the exam, patients have the option of listening to their favorite music or watching a favorite television show. Ask your doctor to schedule your Nuclear Medicine session with Rooks County Health Center.

Proactive Health Screenings

Save yourself from a stroke. 80% of strokes are preventable and Rooks County Health Center offers a painless, 10-minute stroke screening for $25.You can also be screened for an aortic aneurysm or hardening of the arteries in your legs. Three painless, live saving screenings for $25 each or $65 for all three. No appointment or doctor’s order required. Immediate results, no waiting, offered daily Monday through Friday.

Stroke Screening – Carotid Artery Scan $25

Painless 10 minute test to show any problems (plaque build-up) in the carotid arteries. These arteries, located in the neck, supply the brain with blood flow. Over time, build-up of plaque on the artery walls can begin to restrict this blood flow, possibly causing a stroke. This scan can also detect early signs of plaque buildup.

Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Scan $25

Painless test consists of a small Ultrasound probe moved across the abdomen to detect ballooning of the aorta, also known as an aneurysm.

Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) Test $25

PAD or hardening of the arteries is a condition that restricts the blood flow to the legs. A small Ultrasound device is used to measure blood pressure in the legs to check for poor circulation to the legs.

SAVE – All three scans for only $65!
