Our outpatient tests at this location include:
• CT scan
• Open MRI
A Computer Tomography (CT) scan is used to evaluate injuries or diseases, allowing doctors to obtain wafer-thin cross-sections of the inside of the body. These highly detailed images assist the doctor in making a quick and accurate diagnosis. Appointments are required.
Electrocardiogram (EKG) is a brief and painless procedure that measures the heart’s electrical activity to evaluate cardiovascular disease. Appointments are required.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) involves the use of a powerful magnetic field, radio waves and high-powered computers to produce incredibly clear anatomical images. MRI is helpful in evaluating disease and injury to the body, particularly in the neurological and orthopedic areas. Highly detailed images of the internal body structures can be viewed by the doctor without the need for surgery. Our MRI department has been accredited by the American College of Radiology.
This location offers an open MRI machine. Appointments are required. Please notify your doctor before this procedure if you are pregnant.
An ultrasound is used to evaluate body systems including the organs of the abdomen, pelvis and vascular system. Completely non-invasive and painless, an ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves as its imaging source. Our ultrasound technologists are specially trained and certified by the American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonographers.
Appointments are required.
X-ray imaging is offered on a walk-in basis without an appointment and takes only a few minutes to complete. A physician’s order is required.
