Welcome to Waldo County General Hospital’s Imaging Department. Our Imaging or Radiology Department, along with Belfast Bay Radiology, offers the most state-of-the-art technology available, which allows all patients to receive comfortable, efficient, high quality care. As a patient you will receive personalized care, with tests tailored to your individual needs.
Radiology is the branch of medicine that allows us to view the inside of the human body. You are probably familiar with x-rays, one of the most common radiology procedures. X-rays produce a still picture of bones and organs.
Other radiology procedures create moving pictures of your organs at work, while others produce 3-dimensional images of organs and tissue deep within your body. These images help in the early diagnosis and treatment of many conditions.
Your Radiology Team
A radiologist, a doctor who is a specialist in radiology, leads the radiology team. Radiologists work side-by-side with primary care physicians, pediatricians, obstetricians, surgeons, oncologists, and many other doctors to determine the best treatment plan for each patient.
Radiology technologists work with doctors and patients to conduct a number of imaging tests, the results of which are then read by a radiologist. WCGH’s technologists are highly trained and dedicated to educating patients, answering questions, and making patients feel comfortable during a procedure. All radiology technologists are certified nationally by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists and are licensed by the State of Maine.
