At Alta Vista Regional Hospital, diagnostic imaging is used to create a graphic depiction of the structures and functions of the body’s organs and other internal systems. These images are used to examine and diagnose certain medical conditions.
Today, healthcare facilities all around the world use a variety of technologies to see inside the body without cutting it open. At Alta Vista Regional Hospital, we use imaging technologies, including CT scans and mammography to offer a clear picture of possible issues inside the body.
We know that some imaging procedures can make patients anxious. If you have any questions about your imaging test, please ask any member of our staff.
Schedule and register for outpatient imaging tests through our centralized scheduling department.
Upon your arrival, proceed directly to the outpatient registration department. We’ll copy your insurance card, have you sign a consent form and will send you into diagnostic imaging so you can receive your test.
