Diagnostic Imaging – 225.258.5953« Return
St. James Parish Hospital’s Radiology Department allows you to have the best of both worlds—high-tech diagnostics and skilled staff with the friendly, fast service a small hospital can provide.
Our advanced, 100% digital Radiology Department rivals big-city competitors in imaging and diagnostic testing and offers advanced nuclear cancer screenings.
We hear often that patients waited weeks for certain tests at other facilities. We may not be “big,” but we promise to be convenient. If you have orders and insurance approval for a test, contact us FIRST. You shouldn’t have to prolong worry or pain by waiting weeks for a test we can do sooner.
We schedule most diagnostic tests such as MRIs, CT Scans or Mammograms within a day or two and if your test is an emergency, we can often accommodate same-day appointments. Ask your physician to have your imaging and diagnostics done at St. James Parish Hospital. A quicker test means quicker results and quicker relief.
