Scheduling an Appointment
Please call the Outpatient Diagnostics Center at 910-592-2689 for any questions regarding procedures scheduled by your ordering physician's office. All exams, except for annual screening mammograms, require a written order from a physician/approved health care provider. Please bring all orders with you to your appointment.
Exams account for one-third of early detections of breast cancer. At our Outpatient Diagnostics Center, we offer digital mammography for prompt and accurate results. Plus, we provide a MammoPad® to provide extra comfort. If you are age 40 or older and have not had a mammogram in the past year, you're due for a screening. Contact us today to schedule your appointment without a physician referral. 910-592-2689.
SRMC offers stress testing for the diagnosis of heart disease. A variety of different stress tests are offered to fit individual patient needs. The stress tests are performed and evaluated by expert staff, cardiologists, and nuclear medicine specialists.
Nuclear medicine specialists use safe, painless, and cost-effective techniques to image the body and treat disease. Nuclear medicine imaging is unique because it provides doctors with information about both structure and function. It is a way to gather medical information that would otherwise be unavailable, require surgery, or necessitate more expensive diagnostic tests. Nuclear medicine imaging procedures often identify abnormalities very early in the progress of a disease, long before many medical problems are apparent with other diagnostic tests.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a noninvasive medical test that helps physicians diagnose and treat medical conditions.
MR imaging uses a powerful magnetic field, radio frequency pulses, and a computer to produce detailed pictures of organs, soft tissues, bone, and virtually all other internal body structures. The images can then be examined on a computer monitor, printed, or copied to CD. MRI does not use ionizing radiation (x-rays).
Detailed MR images allow physicians to better evaluate various parts of the body and certain diseases that may not be assessed adequately with other imaging methods, such as x-ray, ultrasound or computed tomography (also called CT or CAT scanning).
If you require an MRI or nuclear medicine treatment, your doctor will refer you.
