imaging and radiologyRely on the highly qualified radiology staff at UNC Lenoir Health Care when you need an imaging test in Kinston, North Carolina. We’ll help schedule your care at a time that’s convenient for you—day or evening for most exams. And take comfort in knowing diagnostic services are always available during an emergency.

Imaging Tests

Visit UNC Lenoir for top-quality imaging technology:

  • CT scan – Sends an X-ray beam around a certain area of the body to create 3D images of your internal organs; UNC Lenoir helps you get a CT scan as quickly as possible during stroke symptoms
  • Fluoroscopy – Shows real-time, moving X-ray images, similar to a movie instead of a photograph
  • MRI – Uses powerful magnets and radio waves, not radiation
  • Nuclear medicine scan – Relies on special cameras and tiny amounts of radioactive tracers that you receive via injection
  • PET scan – Uses radioactive tracers to show how well certain organs and tissues work
  • Ultrasound – Sends painless sound waves over the skin and into tissues, organs, or blood vessels

Learn about the specific heart and vascular imaging tests. If you’re a current or former heavy smoker, ask your doctor about our low-dose CT lung cancer screening and other respiratory and pulmonary care.
