Computed tomography (CT) an imaging method that uses x-rays to create cross-sectional pictures of the body. Certain exams require a special dye (contrast) be given through an intravenous line (IV) in your hand or forearm. The contrast helps the radiologist see certain areas more clearly. Once the patient is inside the scanner, the machine’s x-ray beam rotates around the patient. Generally, complete scans take only a few minutes. An appointment is required.
Ultrasound is a very valuable tool in diagnostic imaging. Ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to acquire images. Ultrasound can provide information on organ structure, movement and blood flow, and the exam is typically painless and brief. An appointment is required.
X-rays are a form of radiation, just like visible light. A machines sends individual x-ray particles, called photons. These particles pass through the body. A computer is used to record the images that are created. Structures that are dense (such as bone) will block most of the x-ray particles, and will appear white. Routine X-ray exams such as chest, abdomen, spine, legs and arms do not require a patient to have an appointment. Please bring your written physician’s order when visiting.
Our Laboratory draw station offers individuals and physician-referred patients convenient and easily accessible laboratory services. The laboratory is accredited by the College of American Pathologists. A physician’s order is required to have laboratory work collected at this site. No appointment is required.
