Outpatient Diagnostics are tests that are done at the hospital, but the patient is able to go home after completion. These tests could include imaging, laboratory or other specialty tests as appropriate.
Outpatient procedures, especially same-day surgeries, provide a safe, convenient alternative for many tests and treatments that formerly required an overnight hospital stay. Your physician or health care professional can determine if this is an option for you. Outpatient diagnostic testing is the ideal place for you to have tests done quickly and accurately. Our skilled staff members have the experience and training to make your experience convenient and comfortable.
Testing services include pre-surgical testing, chest x-ray, EKG, CT scans, mammography, stereotactic breast biopsy, ultrasound, vascular ultrasounds, bone densitometry, thyroid scans, Hepatobiliary scans, renal studies, lung scans, Cardiac Stress Tests, MRI’s and walk in lab.
