Diagnostic Imaging

Lake Charles Memorial offers comprehensive, advanced radiology services in comfortable, convenient surroundings. Our radiologists are certified by the American Board of Radiology with extensive training and experience in all areas of technology. Digital x-rays, CT scans and mammograms are available at Memorial’s main campus on Oak Park Boulevard and at Memorial for Women on Gauthier Road.

Our services include:


  • Digital x-ray technology spots tumors or suspicious areas using electromagnetic radiation to make detailed images.
  • Fluoroscopy is a type of imaging that shows a continuous x-ray image on a monitor, much like an x-ray movie. It is used to diagnose or treat patients by displaying the movement of a body part or of an instrument or dye (contrast agent) through the body.


  • Ultrasound uses sound waves to study and treat hard-to-reach body areas providing quality imaging of the fetus, breast, gynecological and urological area, as well as general imaging.

Bone Density Scans

  • Bone density scans are painless, non-invasive tests used to diagnose osteoporosis. Bone density is measured at the hip and spine with high accuracy and precision, yet with very low exposure to radiation.

3D Mammography

  • Mammography is the process of taking a digital images of the breast to identify abnormalities such as very small lumps, areas of calcification, or other changes before they can be felt by a woman or her physician.
  • Complete breast health services, including digital mammography and image-guided breast biopsies, are provided through our Breast Health Program.

CT Scans

  • For those requiring cardiac, brain or peripheral vascular examination, our 128-slice CT scanner takes advantage of the latest advances in CT imaging technology to provide increased speed and detailed information, better diagnostic care, greater convenience and improved patient comfort.

MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging)

  • This is a non-invasive imaging technology that produces three dimensional detailed anatomical images. It is often used for disease detection, diagnosis, and treatment monitoring. It is based on sophisticated technology that excites and detects the change in the direction of the rotational axis of protons found in the water that makes up living tissues. MRIs are offered through Advanced MRI, conveniently located on the first floor of Memorial’s main campus.

Nuclear Medicine

  • Unlike conventional imaging studies that produce primarily structural pictures, nuclear medicine and molecular imaging visualize how the body is functioning and what’s happening at the cellular and molecular level.

Special Procedures

  • Arteriograms
  • Venous access
  • Digital breast biopsies
