St. Vincent Medical Imaging Services provides you with the highest quality care available. With services such as MRI, CT scans, and X-ray, we are prepared to assist your medical team in quickly diagnosing your condition so that treatment and healing can begin as soon as possible.
By continuously investing in the latest technology, we partner with physicians to provide the best quality imaging services. Our goal is to acquire imaging equipment that produces quality pictures and diagnostic capabilities second to none. This commitment to quality and care continues long after the patient leaves one of our facilities.
With ACR accreditation in all Medical Imaging modalities, St. Vincent Medical Imaging Centers provide physicians with quality imaging to aid in better diagnosis. Our staff upholds the highest in imaging safety standards, and our goal is to provide imaging services in a relaxed and comfortable environment.
MRI is sectional images of the body, which are obtained by a strong magnet, radio waves and computer. MRI services include all body parts (spine, head, extremity, abdomen, pelvis). Registered licensed technologists perform approximately 1,000 procedures each year.
During the procedure, patients are made comfortable by communication with the technologist, listening to music of their choice and circulation of air provided throughout the exam.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) uses a powerful magnetic field, radio waves and a computer to produce detailed pictures of organs, soft tissues, bone and virtually all other internal body structures. The images can then be examined on a computer monitor or printed or put onto a CD. MRI does not use ionizing radiation (X-rays).
Ultrasound, also called medical sonography or ultrasonography, is an ultrasound-based diagnostic medical imaging technique used to visualize muscles, tendons, and many internal organs, their size, structure and any pathological lesions with real time tomographic images. It is also used to visualize your baby during both routine and emergency prenatal care.
In this procedure, a machine is used to produce sound waves that are transmitted through a hand-held transducer into the body. The sound waves are reflected and returned to the transducer and captured to produce images. Ultrasound technologist performs these studies. Areas imaged include:
In this procedure, a machine is used to produce sound waves that are transmitted through a hand-held transducer into the body. The sound waves are reflected and returned to the transducer and captured to produce images. A Licensed/Certified Vascular Ultrasound technologist/echocardiographer performs these studies.
Vascular ultrasounds can detect circulation problems in the neck, upper and lower extremities, as well as heart problems. Areas imaged include:
Physicians and staff explain how St. Vincent’s Cancer Care Outreach and Screening is fulfilled through our “Ministry in Motion.” For more than 20 years, St. Vincent has been providing mobile screening services (including mammography) to women in corporate and community settings throughout Central Indiana. Digital mammograms are widely available at many St. Vincent hospital and outpatient locations. To learn more about this service call 317-338-5050.
Breast health services are provided from routine mammograms to major breast imaging procedures. Mammograms are read by board-certified radiologists and are certified by The American College of Radiology’s mammography accreditation program, as well as the Indiana State Department of Health and federal government under the Mammography Quality of Standards Act.
Licensed and registered technologists perform approximately 2,000 exams per year. A variety of services includes:

Diagnostic radiology is used in the diagnosis and treatment of disease or injury. Registered/licensed radiologic technologists and echo/vascular technologists perform approximately 21,000 procedures each year. A variety of imaging services includes:
Interventional radiology includes specialized x-ray examinations performed by the radiologist with the assistance of registered technologists.These exams are performed using state-of-the-art digital imaging techniques and equipment with contrast enhancements.A variety of exam services includes:
CT (Computed Tomography) scans are medical tests that help physicians diagnose and treat medical conditions. CT scans can be used to view bone and soft tissues, including organs, muscles, and tumors.
A computerized x-ray unit takes cross-sectional pictures of the anatomy for this procedure. The patient moves in and out of a circular/donut-shaped opening, and the machine is not enclosed. Anatomy that is scanned includes: head/brain, abdomen, extremities upper and lower, chest, facial, pelvic, and sinuses with and without contrast administration.
A bone density test allows for accurate assessment of the bone mineral density. This is a simple noninvasive procedure done by the CT scanner. Measurements of the hip and spine are taken to diagnose osteopenia and osteoporosis and to evaluate patients receiving treatment for osteoporosis.
Nuclear medicine, like other forms of imaging helps to assist physicians in detecting and diagnosing diseases. Nuclear medicine works by giving patients small doses of radioactive material, radiopharmaceutical or a tracer, that localizes in specific organ systems. It collects in the organ and gives off gamma rays, which is detected by the gamma camera and then produces images and measurements by a computer system.
