Wellness First Center - Palmer has recently renovated its Radiology Department to create a Wellness First Center, which encompasses the general area of health and wellbeing. Including its current Ultrasound and Mammography areas, the Wellness First Center will now include a DEXA ( Bone Density testing) room and Calorimeter room (which measures a person's resting metabolic rate). Palmer is urging all patients to get screening exams like DEXA, Calorimeter and Mammogram done close to home.

All scans are performed by Registered Technologists. We follow the "Image Gently" protocols for X-ray and CT with the least amount of radiation possible to perform a diagnostic exam. All exams are "read" or interpreted by Gundersen Health System Radiologists for emergency after hours reads. Radiologists are at Palmer every Monday and Thursday for Fluoroscopy studies, Diagnostic mammograms and breast ultrasounds and image interpretation. All images are kept on PACs with both onsite short term storage (2-3 months of images) and offsite permanent storage. All images are available for computer viewing by all Palmer and Gundersen clinicians immediately after completion. For more information call us at 563-422-9741.
