We provide service for inpatients, outpatients, clinic walk-ins and emergency department patients. The services we provide are: general X-ray, Fluoroscopy, EKGs, Treadmill Stress Tests, Holter and Event monitors, CT scans and Mammograms. In addition to our in-house services, we have mobile services that include: Ultrasound on Mondays and Wednesdays, MRI on Thursday, Nuclear Medicine every other Tuesday, DEXA scans every fourth Friday and Echocardiograms as needed. In preparation for certain exams, we verify patient allergies, inquire about home medications and review lab work to ensure patient safety. For fluoroscopy and some CT and MRI exams we administer contrast that consists of oral and/or IV contrast.

Along with performing Radiologic exams, we complete and submit prior authorization information to insurance companies to assure exams are paid for our patients and the facility. Additionally, we work with programs like North Dakota Woman’s Way to provide assistance to patients in need of mammograms.

The Radiology department is staffed Monday through Friday, along with on-call hours for evenings, nights and weekends. The CHI Oakes Hospital Radiology team consists of:

  • Raeann Ruff RT(R), Manager –Full-time

In addition to the technologists in our department, we have support staff that include Heather Mitzel and Bobbi Chesley in the Patient Access Office who do the scheduling of our patients, and five Radiologists that are located at Avera St. Luke’s Hospital in Aberdeen, SD who read our exams. Along with these Radiologists we have Virtual Radiology available for after hours and Sanford in Fargo, ND, who read certain MRIs. With the technology of PACS we are able to view, store and electronically send patient images for reading by these Radiologists or to other facilities for patient referrals.
