Diagnostic Imaging Services

Diagnostic Imaging Services

Symptoms are not the entire story. Diagnostic imaging is the best way for a physician to look inside a patient using technology to view internal organs, identify health problems and determine how to best treat them. Physicians use diagnostic imaging for everything from identifying broken bones to determining if a patient has cancer—proving that what’s discovered on the inside during diagnostic imaging really matters. Tanner Health System's Diagnostic Imaging departments offer a full range of state-of-the-art imaging services to ensure that patients receive the quality care they need.

Outpatient imaging often requires some form of preparation. Your physicians will provide instructions on what may be needed for a particular test. Patients with questions should call the location where the test is scheduled.

A wide variety of diagnostic imaging services

The scans and procedures that you may need will vary according to your problem, health condition or disease. Learn more about the types of imaging available at Tanner Health System, including:

  • Bone density
  • Cardiac scoring
  • Catheterization Lab
  • Computed Tomography (CT)
  • Digital mammography
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) - regular and high-field open MRI
  • Nuclear Medicine
  • Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and PET/CT

Diagnostic imaging services require a physician’s order before an appointment can be made. Once a physician prepares an order, you can call Tanner Central Scheduling at 770.836.9721 to make an appointment at any of Tanner’s diagnostic imaging centers, listed below.

If you have a question about a diagnostic imaging procedure, you may seek advice and answers by calling the hospital where you had your procedure performed. Please keep in mind that the technologist who conducted the procedure cannot make a diagnosis. A radiologist will have to examine the images and pass his or her findings on to the physician who ordered the procedure.
