Radiological Services

General Radiography
Here at Healthy Connections, Inc. we offer leading-edge technology to provide the latest in diagnostic imaging. The digital equipment uses the lowest dose of radiation possible for every image which is instantly accessible by the ordering provider and radiologist for evaluation, reducing the time it takes to obtain an accurate diagnosis. Every exam is of the highest standard and is obtained by professionals accredited through the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) and licensed through the Arkansas Department of Health. If the patient is seen by an outside specialist, all examinations are easily copied to discs for outside specialists to evaluate and can be created during normal business hours. General radiology services are available at Malvern, Hot Springs, Mt. Ida, and both Mena clinics. Every exam is sent through a secure server (throughout the day) to the radiologist, who returns an official report of the radiographic examination. At Healthy Connections, every exam is completed by professionals with experience in every age demographic, as efficiently as possible.

Ultrasound Services
Ultrasound services are now available at the main clinic located in Mena, Arkansas. This incorporates cutting-edge ultrasound technology to obtain clear and accurate images of the body.
