Memorial Hospital of Converse County has been a pioneer in healthcare, and our state-of-the-art Radiology Department is no exception. Memorial Hospital is home to one of the most advanced radiology departments in Wyoming. The department offers Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Nuclear Medicine, 320-Slice CT, Ultrasound, and Full- Field Digital Mammography.
Our radiologists are trained in specialized procedures such as injections of contrast agents or "dyes" into joints and the spinal canal, as well as performing needle biopsies and draining fluid collections in the body. They are also trained to perform SPG (Spheno-Palatine Ganglion) blocks for the treatment of migraines and other headaches.
Memorial Hospital's state-of-the-art Radiology Department is backed by our three Radiologists who are available to read films and perform interventional radiology procedures during the week. As full-time radiologists, they ensure all scans and routine x-rays are correctly read in a timely manner, getting the appropriate care to our patients as soon as possible. These physicians specialize in diagnosing and treating injuries and diseases using medical imaging.
Having radiologists working in the hospital helps to ensure our patients receive the most appropriate and timely treatment. Investments in specialized equipment and staff create the most comprehensive radiology department in east-central Wyoming.
Migraines are not just bad headaches, and for those who suffer from chronic migraines, the intense throbbing pain, sensitivity to light and sound, and other factors can be debilitating.
The FDA-approved SPG block provides instant relief for migraine sufferers by numbing a collection of nerve cells located just under the tissue lining at the back of the nose. By applying a local anesthetic to the area, nerve impulses can be temporarily blocked, providing relief from various types of pain.
Memorial Hospital of Converse County is the only area hospital offering the SPG block, which is performed by radiologists Dr. Dennis Yutani and Dr. Doug White. For more information on the SPG block, ask your doctor or contact the Radiology Department at Memorial Hospital at 307.358.1438.
