What is radiology?

Radiology is a medical specialty that has grown into a vital diagnostic tool. High-resolution and functional images allow our radiologists to detect tumors smaller than a centimeter, visualize tiny cartilage tears in joints and track down infectious diseases in their earliest stages. Radiologists can now use interventional radiology techniques to treat aneurysms with minimally invasive stents or deliver chemotherapy drugs to tumors with pinpoint accuracy.

Computed tomography (CT) scan

We proudly perform CT scans, also known as CAT scans, at all Rose Imaging facilities. In the video below you can learn what to expect when receiving a CT scan at Rose.

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)

An MRI uses magnetic waves and computers to make pictures of the inside of the body. It is able to produce both two-dimensional and three-dimensional images. Rose’s registered MRI technologists are highly trained and aim to provide patients with the best experience possible. Below is information about what to expect when you get an MRI at a Rose Medical Center facility:

  • Safety and privacy: Your privacy is very important to us. We carefully screen each of our patients for the presence of metallic implants and materials so special precautions can be taken. Please notify your MRI technologist if you are pregnant or think you may be pregnant.
  • Duration: Depending on the type of MRI you are having, the exam itself may take up to 60 minutes to complete. There are times when appointments are delayed due to emergent cases from the ER. We will keep you informed about any delays.
  • Contrast: Your physician may request contrast for your MRI exam, which is most often administered through a small IV placed in your arm or hand. Your technologist will take the time to answer any questions you may have about the use of contrast.
  • Discharge instructions: The images taken during your exam will be interpreted by a board-certified radiologist within 48 hours. You will receive your test results from your ordering physician. If you had a contrast study exam, please be sure to drink extra fluids after your exam.
  • Your exam results and copies of images: You can access your radiology report online through MyHealthOne, our secure patient portal, seven days following your exam. Please stop by our front desk to receive your medical record number which will allow you to access your information. Additionally, we are happy to provide you with a CD copy of your images upon request. We will ask that you sign a release form for your medical information.

Preparing for your MRI

There are two types of MRI examinations that require special preparations. These include:

  • Magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP)
    • Nothing by mouth, including food and water, four hours prior to your exam
  • MRI enterography
    • Exam will always be at the main hospital
    • No food or drink by mouth four hours prior to the exam
    • Arrive one hour before the test
    • You will need to drink contrast prior to the scan


We offer ultrasound imaging examinations as part of our comprehensive radiology services. See the videos below for more information about ultrasounds and what you can expect during an ultrasound exam.

Bone screening

Rose Medical Center offer osteoporosis testing at the Rose Breast Center. Bone density testing is performed using the dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) scan, the gold standard in osteoporosis diagnosis. Our brand-new, state-of-the-art machine provides an X-ray scan that uses a small amount of radiation to take images of bones in the body. These images are used to determine the density of the bones, which helps your physician determine if you have osteoporosis.

Osteoporosis is a bone-thinning disease that increases the likelihood of future fractures/damage to your bones. Women are at an increased risk for osteoporosis and screening is a proactive step to take for your overall women’s care.

Call (303) 320-2568 to schedule your DEXA scan at Rose Breast Center. You may fill out your registration forms in advance.
