Imaging Services

Who Are We?

Imaging Services of Terre Haute Regional Hospital (THRH) provides diagnostic imaging examinations for Out-Patients, In-Patients and Emergency Room Patients. We are located within the hospital at the Northwest Entrance (3901 South Seventh Street, Terre Haute IN 47802).

The Imaging Services staff is very knowledgeable and ensures quality diagnostic images. The technologists are skilled in anatomy, patient positioning, examination techniques, radiation safety and basic patient care. Registered Radiologic Technologists (R.T.(R)) must complete a minimum two year formal education and must pass a national certification examination. To maintain their registration, they must earn continuing education credits every biennium. Many of our technologists have furthered their career by obtaining certifications within the radiological field.

The diagnostic images are interpreted by a Radiologist. A Radiologist is a physician who earns a four year doctoral degree to become an M.D. or D.O. Then they complete a four year residency in Diagnostic Radiology. A majority of Radiologists become certified by the American Board of Radiology and become specialized within the field of Radiology.

THRH Imaging Service provides a Registered Nurse during all invasive procedures performed within our department. During the procedure our nurse will monitor your vitals, assist the Radiologist and administer medication when needed. Terre Haute Regional Hospital has a Radiation Safety Committee (RSC). This committee meets on a routine basis to review the safe usage of radioactive materials and radiation generating equipment. The RSC ensures that all employees working in the vicinity of radioactive materials have sufficient training and experience to perform their duties in accordance with the regulatory requirements. The committee also reviews the process for radiation safety of all employees, patients and visitors.
