Radiology (X-ray) Services
Mercy Medical Center and the Mercy Plaza Imaging Center offer the latest medical imaging technology. This technology provides image quality that can diagnose a disease as small as a few millimeters in size. Mercy continues to utilize technology that provides a diagnostic study with a small amount of radiation exposure; some technologies, such as ultrasound and MRI, do not utilize radiation at all to produce an image.
Mercy performs more than 122,000 procedures per year. We work closely with Radiology Consultants of Iowa, a group of specialized radiologists, who interpret your exam results and provide an accurate diagnosis.
