Diagnostic Imaging & Laboratory Services
At MountainView, we offer a range of tests, including MRIs, CT Scans, and X-Rays. We also perform a comprehensive array of breast diagnostics, such as mammography (with Soft Touch Mammopad), ultrasound, and more.
Angiography is an X-Ray exam of the arteries and veins that are used to diagnose blockages and other blood vessel diseases. An interventional radiologist performs this procedure to detect abnormalities like aneurysms, cerebral vascular disease or blood vessel malformations. The radiologist can treat blockages immediately utilizing techniques like angioplasty and thrombolysis.
A computerized tomography scan produces cross-sectional images of all body parts. It is used to diagnose cancers, and vascular diseases.
An electroencephalogram – or EEG – measures electrical activity in the brain. It is used to help evaluate head injuries, tumors, diseases and types of seizure disorders.
Electromyography – EMG - is a test that assesses the health of the muscles and the nerves controlling the muscles. EMG helps physicians differentiate problems caused by primary muscle weakness from those caused by neurological disorders.
At MountainView, we want you to be as comfortable as possible during your mammogram. That's why we offer the Soft Touch MammopadTM, a cushion that is used during the mammogram to ease the pressure you feel. Mammography uses low-dose x-rays to produce detailed images of breast tissue. These images aid in the early detection of problems or changes caused by breast cancer or other types of breast disease.

Magnetic resonance imaging – MRI - produces detailed images of the brain, spinal cord, joints, soft tissue and the body's vascular system, without radiation. Doctors use this information to diagnose injuries and diseases in the body’s soft tissues, such as torn ligaments, strokes, and infections in the brain, spine or joints.
Peripheral Vascular Imaging
This imaging technique uses ultrasound technology to evaluate the veins and arteries of the legs. The test evaluates blood flow through the lower extremities to help determine the most appropriate treatment for peripheral vascular disease.
This imaging technique uses high-frequency sound waves and echoes to create dimensional images without radiation. It helps doctors see blood flow through the heart, abdominal and pelvic structures and is also used during obstetrical exams.
Digital P-A-C-S Diagnostic Imaging
MountainView features diagnostic imaging, (CT, X-Ray, MRI) with our computerized system called P-A-C-S (Picture Archiving Communication System). This system records and shares all images electronically instead of on film. This improves image quality and provides doctors with rapid access to a patient's results from any connected location, such as a doctors office.
