Surgical Imaging services allow physicians and surgeons to see internal images of the body, including bones and organs, prior to and during surgical procedures. These images help reduce risk and speed recovery.
Kishwaukee Community Hospital Diagnostic Imaging Services provide guidance through the following surgical procedures:
Bronchoscopy allows a doctor to examine inside your airway for abnormalities.
Central Line Placement is used to administer medication or fluids to patients before, during, and after surgery. The placement of the central line usually occurs in the large veins of the neck.
Mediport Placement is similar to Central Venous Catheters, but normally used for patients who require long term medication or fluid administration. Ports are usually placed in and around the collarbone, near the large veins of the neck.
PIC (Peripherally Inserted Central Venous Catheter) Line Guidance is an intravenous catheter that is inserted through the skin into a vein in the arm above the elbow, and allows for administration of medication and fluids.
Intraoperative Cholangiogram allows the physician to the anatomy of the bile duct in the gallbladder when a catheter is place into the cystic duct, and the bile is drained from the gallbladder into the common bile duct.
Ureteral Stent Placement allows a doctor to restore the flow of urine to the bladder.
Retrograde Study provides visuals of the entire ureter, which moves urine from the bladder to the kidneys, and allows physicians to see and monitor any blockages or abnormalities.
Open Reduction of Skeletal Fracture helps surgeons see the placement of broken and/or fractured bones before open surgery to repair and promote healing. Open surgery involves the surgical cutting of skin and tissues in order to give surgeons direct access to the bones involved.
Closed Reduction of Skeletal Fracture permits surgeons manipulate and repair fractured or broken bones without incisions into the skin.
