Most Comprehensive in the Region
EIRMC's Medical Imaging services are the most comprehensive in the region. No other facility in the area offers the diversity, breadth, and depth of our services. We perform about 250 imaging tests each weekday (inpatient, outpatient, and emergency). The Medical Staff includes twenty radiologists,with specialties including neuroradiology and interventional radiology.
The majority of imaging services at EIRMC are obtained and managed by a fully digital environment, often referred to as PACS, (Picture Archive and Communications System). This advanced technology means your physician can access digital images and view your test results from anywhere there is Internet access - usually within minutes of your diagnostic imaging procedure!
The PACS system enables healthcare providers to get vital imaging results and information about your health faster so that treatment of your medical concerns can happen even more quickly.
Our advanced imaging services at EIRMC include:
- Ultrasound – Diagnostic and Therapeutic procedures
- High Risk OB Ultrasonography (Perinatology Program)
- Digital Mammography, Stereotactic Breast Biopsy
- 3D and 2D Digital Mammography, Stereotactic Breast Biopsy
- Bone Densitometry
- Digital Mobile C-Arm
- Digital Mobile O-Arm (the only one in the state of Idaho)
- Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
- Diagnostic and Therapeutic Nuclear Medicine Services
- 64-Slice Computed Tomography (CT) w/Cardiac (Coronary) capability
- CT w/Fluoroscopy
- General Diagnostic Radiology
- 2 Interventional Radiology Suites – performing diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, offering patients more options without surgery

Combines thin cross-sections of digital images in multiple planes to provide detailed diagnostic information in all areas of the body. Biopsies and other treatments can be performed using CT Scanning.
Highly-skilled radiologists use various techniques to guide procedures for diagnosis and/or treatment. Procedures are “minimally invasive,” as opposed to surgery. They are done through small nicks in the skin and use various needles, wires, and catheters to gain access to the area of interest.
In addition to the MERCI Device, EIRMC also has the Covidien Solitaire FR Revascularization, which combines the ability to restore circulation and remove blood clots in stroke patients using a single device. Learn More »
Magnetic Resonance Imaging
Can reveal medical conditions and better details of soft-tissue anatomy that are not easily diagnosed through an X-ray, ultrasound or CT scan. MRI acquires images of the body using powerful magnets and radiofrequency waves.
A powerful camera is used to generate crystal-clear images to quickly detect and characterize disease. Nuclear Medicine provides more information in terms of physiological or actual functions within the body as opposed to just anatomical.
Commonly called sonography or ultrasonography, this utilizes high-frequency sound waves to display moving, 3D images of the inside of the body on a monitor. No radiation is involved with ultrasound imaging procedures.
A common basic diagnostic tool used in healthcare, x-rays are a form of electromagnetic radiation, just like visible light. Individual particles (photons) pass through the body and are detected by highly sensitive imaging plate that is transmitted into a sharp digital image.
