Focus on safety
We know you are concerned about safety when it comes to the use of radiation in imaging — and so are we. Our team of board-certified radiologists and expertly trained technologists are committed to using the lowest dose of radiation possible to acquire images. Community Hospital takes part in the American College of Radiology’s Image Gently™ and Image Wisely campaigns, for children and adults, respectively. The campaigns raise awareness of opportunities to eliminate unnecessary imaging examinations and to lower radiation in necessary imaging examinations to only that needed to acquire appropriate images. Read more about our safety efforts and questions you can ask to ensure that your imaging studies are being done as safely as possible.
What you should know about radiation safety
If radiation is part of your cancer treatment, we offer radiation therapy orientation for you and your family. Tour the department, meet the staff, and get your questions answered before treatment starts. Knowing what to expect can really make a difference.
