IMAGING SERVICES

These are not just pictures, these are accurate results that you can trust. 

Our imaging department is staffed by a Licensed and certified Radiologist as well as experienced Radiology Technologists. They ensure you get quality imaging tests with the minimal exposure to radiation. 

Currently we offer you:

  • Ultrasounds
  • X-Rays
  • EKG (electrocardiogram)

We are working diligently to be able to provide very soon, other diagnostic imaging like

  • Mammograms
  • CT scans
  •  

Services 24/7

For your convenience, our Imaging department offers it’s services 24/7. Imaging procedures are performed with an order from any healthcare provider/specialist.

Beyond general Ultrasounds

There are special modalities of diagnostic ultrasound that can help your doctor provide you with better care. 

Doppler (veins & arteries)

This test can measure the amount of blood flow through your arteries and veins, usually those that supply blood to your arms and legs. A Doppler ultrasound may help diagnose many conditions, including:

  • Blood clots
  • Heart valve defects and congenital heart disease
  • A blocked artery (arterial occlusion)
  • Decreased blood circulation into your legs (peripheral artery disease)
  • Bulging arteries (aneurysms)
  • Narrowing of an artery, such as in your neck (carotid artery stenosis)

Fetal Doppler

The fetal doppler assesses the well-being of your baby by
evaluating the materno-fetal blood flow, especially in high risk patients. It helps the obstetrician determine the best management for you and your child and avoid complications.

Fetal Biophysical Profile

This test measures the amount of amniotic fluid around your baby. It also evaluates the breathing and certain body movements. These measurements are used to determine the risk of fetal
complications and mortality. You should get a biophysical profile of your baby if:

  • Your pregnancy is over 41 weeks.
  • There are decreased movements of your baby
  • You will have labor induction and have chronic hypertension or gestational diabetes.

 

Talk to your doctor if you believe you need any of these tests.

C-arm, new addition to our imaging department

C-Arm is a medical imaging device that is based on X-Ray technology. The name is derived from the C-shaped arm used to connect the X-Ray source and X-Ray detector to one another. It is often used in surgery, orthopedics, traumatology, vascular surgery and cardiology for intra-operative imaging. The device provides high-resolution X-Ray images in real time, allowing the surgeon to monitor progress at any point during the surgery.

I want an X-Ray but do not have a doctor’s order. Can I still have the X-ray done at La Loma Luz Adventist Hospital?

Short answer: Yes. We recommend that you be evaluated first by a doctor so as to avoid unnecessary radiation while doing an unnecessary X-Ray. Also please bear in mind that our Radiology technicians, even though experienced, do not provide an interpretation of the images. If you need a written report of the X-rays, it can be provided by the radiologist but this will incur additional costs. ​
