When a healthcare provider is informed of, or notices an abnormality in a patient, he/she may order a diagnostic test for more information. Radiology/Diagnostic imaging utilizes technology to examine the inside of the human body for purposes of retrieving clues about a medical condition. TPCA staff performs numerous diagnostic tests that create pictures of the structures and activities inside the body.
The type of test performed will depend on the patient’s symptoms and the part of the body being examined. Some exams require prep on the part of the patient prior to an exam. The scheduling department will equip the patient with prep instructions at the time of scheduling the appointment. Below is a list of the tests that we perform at our Diagnostic Imaging Center. Click on each to learn more.
- Bone Density Tests
- CT (Computed Tomography) Scan
- Cardiovascular Services
- Nuclear Medicine
Same or next day appointments are often available. It is imperative that we are provided with the images and reports of any prior studies done elsewhere that are related to the ordered exam. They will be used for comparison purposes to detect change. The scheduling department will request previous imaging records from the referring healthcare provider prior to patient appointment.
TPCA partners with Radiology Associates of Tallahassee to read our studies, providing you with fast turnaround of your diagnostic imaging results.
