Gundersen Boscobel celebrates National Radiologic Technology Week

Gundersen Boscobel celebrates National Radiologic Technology Week
Wednesday, October 30, 2019

Gundersen Boscobel Area Hospital and Clinics honors our dedicated radiologic technologists during National Radiologic Technology Week Nov. 3-9. They are celebrated each year during the week of Nov. 8 to honor the day German physicist Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen discovered the X-ray in 1895.

"Our medical imaging professionals work with some of the most innovative equipment in the medical field to assist in identifying patient injuries and pathologies, allowing physicians and other providers to plan and administer treatment to restore patient health," said Gundersen Boscobel Hospital Director of Ancillary Services Judy Dayton. 

In January 2020, Gundersen Boscobel enhances our services with the availability of 3D mammography. Standard digital mammography provides radiologists with 2D images of the breast, where overlapping layers of tissue can create unclear results or false alarms.

3D mammography aims to decrease the effect of overlapping breast tissue by taking several X-ray images of each breast to create a more accurate 3D picture. With 3D mammography, radiologists can evaluate breast tissue layer by layer making fine details more visible.

"We are proud to offer an array of imaging options, close to home to best support patient needs," Dayton says. "Our addition of 3D mammography is another way in which we're working to best serve our patients."

Providing patients with safe medical imaging examinations is the primary goal for our radiologic technologists. They specialize in breast imaging, computed tomography, cardiac-interventional procedures, magnetic resonance imaging, nuclear medicine, ultrasound, radiation therapy and general diagnostic radiography.

At Gundersen Boscobel, we're proud to provide the following diagnostic services:

  • Mammography (2D currently available and 3D coming in January)
  • Bone density testing
  • Computed tomography (CT)
  • Echocardiography
  • MRI
  • Nuclear Medicine
  • Radiography
  • Ultrasound
