Bone Density Screening
The imaging technology of the Horizon DXA system provides superb image quality with advanced diagnostic tools to support early detection and treatment of osteoporosis and provide a full body, Advanced Body Composition® assessment.
Osteoporosis is a growing healthcare crisis affecting millions of women and men worldwide. 77% of American women with osteoporosis are undiagnosed (and therefore untreated). Fortunately, osteoporosis is detectable and treatable and testing is safe and non-invasive. Horizon enables new dimensions in care, including greater insights into biomechanical strength, visualization of calcification in the abdominal aorta that can indicate heart disease, lumbar spine and proximal femur studies, BMD measurements of the entire skeleton, atypical femur fracture (AFF) assessment, and many other clinical applications.
Additionally, this technology includes the Advanced Body Composition assessment which provides detailed information on body fat, lean mass, bone mass, and visceral fat. This assessment can help individuals track their progress with weight loss and bodybuilding goals. All of these services are now available with a doctor's order at your hometown hospital.
Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers among women. Donalsonville Hospital provides services to educate women on breast health and encourages self-breast exams. With the utilization of state-of-the-art 3D Mammography technology and specialized technologist, we provide screening as well as diagnostic examinations of the breast to detect breast cancer at the earliest stages when treatment can be most effective.
CT (Computed Tomography)
Our CT can provide an evaluation of tumors, masses, and even as small as Pulmonary Embolisms in the lungs. The 128-slice CT provides a specialized study of Lung Screening. The Lung Screening Program is a comprehensive program that offers annual lung screening CT and management by a Physician who performs a shared decision-making visit with the patient, offers tobacco cessation counseling, informs patients and referring providers of CT results, assists with referrals to specialists and tracks patients for follow-up compliance.
As part of an overall health plan, lung screening is an effective detection tool for patients at elevated risk for lung cancer. Lung screening uses low-dose computed tomography (LDCT) resulting in either positive or negative signs of lung cancer. Early detection is one of the most powerful tools to reduce the risk of lung cancer death while negative results can give your patient peace of mind, aiding their overall health.
Our sonographers are experienced and compassionate and use state-of-the-art equipment. We provide expedient and accurate assessments of a variety of obstetric, Echocardiography, abdominal, vascular and endocrine applications. We also provide ultrasound-guided biopsy and intra-operative assistance.

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
MRI is a technique that uses a magnetic field and radio waves to create detailed images of the organs and tissues within your body. The MRI machines are large, tube-shaped magnets. MRI can also produce 3D imaging to provide more detailed images for our Physicians to evaluate and diagnose many conditions.
