Imaging Services

Allegiance Health offers a wide range of diagnostic exams using leading-edge equipment and interpreted by specially trained radiologists. Our imaging services include:

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

An MRI machine creates cross-sectional images of the body without the need for radiation. An MRI uses a magnetic field and radio waves and is an extremely effective way of evaluating a variety of medical conditions. Learn more about our MRI technology.

Computed Tomography (CT Scan)

Computed tomography, also known as CT scan or CAT scan, uses computer-processed X-rays to produce tomographic images or “slices” of specific organs and areas of the body. Allegiance Health offers standard CT studies as well as high resolution and 3D angiography. Learn more about our CT Scan technology.

Digital Mammography

A mammogram is an x-ray exam of the breast that’s used to detect and evaluate breast changes.  Three of Allegiance Health’s imaging locations are equipped with full-field mammography, which includes a computer-aided detection system (CAD) that assists in detecting breast tissue abnormalities. Learn more about our mammography services.

Mobile Health Coach

The Allegiance Mobile Health Coach is a mobile unit that offers both mammography and bone density exams. The Health Coach travels to eight different locations in South Central Michigan: Albion, Adrian, Grass Lake, Brooklyn, Onsted, Mason, Leslie, Vandercook and the Center for Family Health in downtown Jackson. Learn more about the Mobile Health Coach.

Ultrasound

Ultrasound uses high frequency sound waves to look at particular areas of the body. Examinations include obstetrics, gynecology, abdominal and vascular imaging. Learn more about our ultrasound technology.

X-ray

Allegiance Health provides general radiography services, including general X-rays, fluoroscopy (a technique used to take X-ray pictures of internal structures) and intravenous pyelograms (IVP) that provide pictures of the kidneys, bladder, ureter and urethra. Learn more about our X-ray technology.

Nuclear Medicine (Molecular Imaging)

Nuclear medicine involves the use of small amounts of radioactive materials (or tracers) to help diagnose and treat a variety of diseases. Nuclear medicine determines the cause of the medical problem based on the function of the organ, tissue or bone. Learn more about our nuclear medicine technology.

Bone Density Screens

A bone density screen determines if a patient has osteoporosis—a disease that can impact both men and women by causing bones to become more fragile and more likely to break. Using X-rays, we measure how much calcium and other bone minerals are packed into a section of bone. Learn more about bone density screens.


Think “activity” instead of “exercise.” The important thing is to spend less time sitting at the TV or computer and more time moving.
