Imaging Services (Radiology)

Pershing Health System may be a small, regional care facility, but its Imaging Department offers some of the most state-of-the-art equipment available for health maintenance and diagnosis.

Patients at Pershing Health System have access to the same imaging equipment as large urban hospitals. PHS’s nine radiologists are board certified in pediatrics, neurology, musculoskeletal, and breast imaging. Patients at PHS get the same readings that they would get at a large hospital such as in Liberty, Kansas City or Columbia, Missouri. This not only allows for the highest quality imaging available, but fast turnaround times for patients to get their results – often the same day.

Featuring State of the Art Imaging Equipment:

DXA Bone Density Scanning
77% of American women with osteoporosis are undiagnosed (and therefore untreated). If you already have an osteoporosis or osteopenia (initial stage of bone loss) diagnosis it is recommended that you get a bone density scan annually. If you have a normal bone density it is recommended that you have a test every other year.
