Upon receipt of a study requested by an authorized provider, the Diagnostic Imaging Department provides service to any registered patient of YKHC. We do general x-ray exams, computed tomography, contrast studies, mammography and sonograms. Services are provided to all age groups and they are predominantly outpatients.

The department is open from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. to support Outpatient Clinics and staffed 24/7 with a Technologist able to perform general and computed tomography exams, to support the Emergency Department.

The department is staffed by AART licensed technologists approximately 24 hours a day, 7 days a week (except in extenuating circumstances, when an on-call technologist is designated) for general radiology and computed tomography.

An RDMS licensed sonographer performs sonograms nine hours a day, Monday through Friday.

Certified Mammographers perform mammograms by appointment and walk-in Monday through Friday.

ACR board-certified Radiologists provide interpretation of all studies. Our radiologists are located in Ohio and read our images remotely. One of them is available 24 hours a day for consult. Once a month, one of them comes to Bethel to do Lower GIs, VCUG s etc. They have a monthly calendar with all their contact information that is prepared by the radiology department and distributed throughout the hospital. Call them with any questions about radiological testing.

For questions about ortho or surgery x-rays – you can telerad them directly to ANMC. Find out who the ANMC orthopedic or surgery doctor is for that day by calling ANMC operator (907-563-2662). Fill out a telerad form and the radiology technician can send it there. Then in about 30-45 minutes you can call ANMC and ask for the doctor on call that you had teleraded it to and they and you can look at the x-ray together and decide what to do.
