Medical Imaging – HSHS Good Shepherd Hospital

One of the most common misconceptions people have of their smaller community hospital is that it may not offer the latest in imaging technology, also known as radiology. HSHS Good Shepherd Hospital offers advanced medical imaging that is 100% digital and you can be assured that a boar-certified radiologist will receive and review your results quickly.

While many outpatient procedures can be performed on a “walk in” basis, there are some exams that require a fasting period prior to the test and a radiologist be present for the exam. For this reason, it is always best to call the Imaging Department at (217) 774-3961, ext. 5171 to find out if an appointment is needed. Please note all radiology exams require a written or phoned-in order from your physician.

Common diagnostic exams performed at Good Shepherd Hospital include:


Computed Tomography (CT Scan)


Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

Ultrasound (Sonography)

Nuclear Medicine

Bone Densitometry
