The University Health Services Radiology Department is accredited by the American College of Radiology and offers convenient, diagnostic X-ray/ultrasound services to all registered students, spouses of students enrolled in the Student Health Insurance Plan for Penn State (SHIP), and injured Penn State employees. Services are also available to Penn State visitors and sports camp participants while on campus.

The department is equipped with state-of-the-art medical equipment and staffed by X-ray technologists certified through the American Registry of Radiology Technologists and ultrasound technologists certified through the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography.

X-Ray Services

The department provides diagnostic X-ray services only (we do not offer special procedures such as fluoroscopy). Patients may request copies of their images for ongoing care at an alternate healthcare facility or for personal records. Images are copied to a CD that can be delivered directly to the patient or mailed at the patient's request. Please note that there is a charge for image copies.

University Health Services currently offers ultrasound exams for :

  • Abdomen (liver, pancreas, gallbladder, spleen, renal, bladder, aorta, etc.)
  • Small Parts (thyroid, testicular, and miscellaneous)
  • Gynecological Exams (uterus, ovaries, IUD checks, etc.)
