Digital x-ray images are sent electronically to board-certified radiologists, with final reports available within minutes.

3D Mammography

3D Mammography technology combines conventional 2-dimensional mammogram images with additional 3-dimensional views, enhancing the views of breast tissue resulting in several benefits. Patients may self-refer without a physician order if over age 40.

Digital Mammograms mean:
  • More accurate detection
  • Earlier diagnosis
  • Better detection in dense breast tissue
  • Less anxiety due to fewer callbacks

Bone Density Scanning

Take the first step towards healthier bones! DEXA (Dual Energy X-ray Absortiometry) is a quick and painless way to measure bone mineral density. More sensitive than a standard x-ray, DEXA offers precision accuracy to help doctors diagnose osteoporosis. A physician’s order is required for this test.


An echocardiogram is an ultrasound test that checks the structure and function of your heart. An echo can diagnose a range of conditions including cardiomyopathy and valve disease.

4D Ultrasound

Ultrasound imaging uses high-frequency sound waves to produce pictures of the inside of the body. It’s a painless, noninvasive test with no x-ray radiation involved. Madelia Health offers a variety of ultrasound procedures including stroke and cardiovascular screenings. OB ultrasound is also available with revolutionary 4D imaging that enables you to watch your unborn baby in motion.

Computed Tomography (CT)

CT—sometimes called CAT scanning—is a noninvasive test that helps physicians diagnose illnesses and injuries. CT combines special x-ray equipment with sophisticated computers to produce detailed images of internal organs, bones, soft tissue and blood vessels. CT scans provide the lowest radiation dose available, in a relaxing atmosphere that provides comfort throughout your exam.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

MRI uses magnetic fields, radio frequency pulses and computer technology to create detailed images of the inside of your body. The test is safe and painless with no x-ray radiation involved. MRI is offered at Madelia Health on Tuesdays and Saturdays.
