diagnostic imaging

Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital's Diagnostic Imaging Center combines state-of-the-art technology with the expertise of our health care professionals. We perform more than 250,000 procedures each our locations, including the Advocate Good Samaritan Outpatient Centers in Lemont and Downers Grove, and the Advocate Imaging Center in Woodridge.

The Diagnostic Imaging Center is accredited by the Joint Commission and holds several other accreditations and certifications.

Dedicated radiologists provide advanced diagnostic services that include:

We also perform interventional radiology procedures, including:

  • Kyphoplasty
    Kyphoplasty can help restore damaged vertebrae to their original shape. During the procedure, a physician inserts a balloon device into a vertebra through a small incision in the patient's back. The balloon is inflated, and a cement-like material is injected. General or local anesthesia can be used.
  • Uterine Artery Embolization
    Uterine Artery Embolization (UAE) is a minimally invasive procedure commonly used to treat fibroid tumors. During the procedure, small catheters are inserted into both uterine arteries. Tiny particles are released through the catheters to block blood flow to the tumors, causing them to shrink. UAE can be an alternative to surgery, but it is not appropriate for all women. Please talk to your physician to learn whether UAE is right for you.
  • Vertebroplasty
    During a Vertebroplasty, a physician inserts a hollow needle into a patient's vertebrae and injects a cement-like material into the bone. Radiologists use fluoroscopic imaging technology to guide the needle and monitor the procedure. This minimally invasive procedure typically is done in an outpatient setting.
