Diagnostic Imaging

Northside’s state-of-the-art imaging services have been ranked number one for the past six years by metro Atlanta consumers in the National Research Corporation’s annual Healthcare Market Guide Study.

Diagnostic imaging refers to the technologies and processes used to create images of the human body and the activities inside the body. Using these images, radiologists or other physicians can often diagnosis the cause of symptoms, determine the cause of an injury or illness, monitor how well the body is responding to treatment and screen for different illnesses, such as breast cancer or heart disease.

The technology your doctor uses will depend on your symptoms and the part of your body being examined. Many imaging tests are painless and easy and some involve radiation through the area of interest. The amount of radiation is minimal and very safe as Northside Hospital Radiology is dedicated to providing quality diagnostic images as safely as possible.
