Description of Services
The Department of Radiology is located in Desmond T. Doss Health Clinic at Schofield Barracks in building 685, letter I on the first Floor. Radiology performs and interprets thousands of imaging products annually. Radiology consists of two sections; Diagnostic Radiology and Mammography.
General Radiology is the oldest, most frequently used imaging called x-ray. X-ray technology was established more than a hundred years ago and can be produced on film or digitally. Bones will block or absorb many of the x-rays and appear white, while less dense tissues, such as muscles and organs will appear in shades of gray on the x-ray image. There is usually no preparation required for an x-ray, but you may be asked to position your body and hold still so that a clear x-ray image can be obtained.
Desmond T. Doss Health Clinic is proud to be a leader in digital x-ray imaging. X-ray imaging is the fastest and easiest way for radiologists and your primary care manager to view and assess such things as broken bones, conditions of joints, spinal and skull injuries and viewing the condition of the abdominal and chest areas of the body.
Desmond T. Doss Health Clinic Breast Imaging Service is Mammography Quality and Standards Act Certified and offers digital screening mammography. We are one of three military treatment facilities in the Department of Defense to be named an American College of Radiology Breast Imaging Center of Excellence, DDHC's Breast Imaging Service takes patient privacy, safety, and quality as top priorities delivering comfortable and compassionate patient care.

Dress comfortably with a two-piece outfit because you will need to undress above the waist. Please do not wear lotions, perfumes, or deodorants the day of the appointment. If possible, you should not schedule your mammogram just before or during your menstrual period, especially if you have breast pain or discomfort at that time.
