  • Screening mammograms.
  • Diagnostic mammograms.
  • Stereotactic core biopsies.
  • Needle localizations.

All women ages 35 - 40 should have a baseline mammogram, and mammograms should be performed yearly for women over the age of 40.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) produces clear images of internal organs and tissues. The MRI system can examine the designated area from any direction or plane, with our high field strength magnet, enhancing the physician's ability to make a diagnosis by viewing the involved body part from multiple perspectives. MRI and image production does not expose patients to radiation.

A new large bore/ open ended magnet will be located in Hillcrest Hospital, 1st floor Radiology. This new MRI allows patients larger opening, faster scans and more availability to almost all types of MRI exams.

For more information about MRI, call 440.312.4797.

Nuclear Medicine

The Nuclear Medicine department offers a wide range of diagnostic imaging procedures and treatment for a number of diseases, including treatments for hyperthyroidism and thyroid cancer.

Trained, certified and experienced nuclear medicine technologists prepare you for a pleasant imaging experience. Using very small amounts of radiopharmaceuticals that are either injected into your vein or ingested, images are created using an extremely sensitive radiation detector called a "gamma camera."

Our nuclear medicine department has four state-of-the-art dual-head gamma imaging cameras available.


The Hillcrest Ultrasound Department is equipped with advanced equipment for more accurate diagnosis.

Sonographers, registered by the American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonographers (ARDMS), perform ultrasound of the abdomen, pelvis, breast, prostate and testicle. Ultrasound can also be used to guide biopsies of the breast and thyroid gland.
