Community's Radiology Department cares for patients from both inpatient and outpatient services. Patients seen in our department are provided physical, mental, and emotional support while undergoing tests and treatments.

Our nurses develop and manage a care plan to help patients and their families understand procedures and diagnoses. Radiology nurses perform examinations and carry out preventative health measures within the prescribed guidelines and instructions of the radiologist. Our nurses collaborate with the physicians to discuss the findings and treatment modalities for the patient based on the Innovative Care model.
