Imaging Services in the Central Valley

Highly Advanced Diagnostics for the Best Medical Treatment

In the medical realm, diagnostic imaging involves various processes medical professionals use to obtain detailed pictures of the body both inside and out. In the last 100 years, these diagnostic imaging tests have become much more refined, enabling doctors to identify warning signs of medical issues so they can be diagnosed. Salinas Valley Healthcare System has stayed on top of these medical advances and we have equipped ourselves with high-quality imaging devices, such as X-ray and MRI machines, so that we can provide patients with optimal diagnostics and preemptive treatments.

We provide the following diagnostic imaging services in Salinas:

Surgery as a Diagnostic Technique

Without being able to see inside the body, doctors can only rely on surgery to examine a patient with unexplained ailments. This is not an ideal diagnostic procedure, as it puts the patient at risk of infection, requires a stay at the hospital, and is can be quite costly and end up yielding no results. Now surgery is used as a last resort diagnostic measure, and even then, doctors typically employ minimally invasive techniques.

Imaging services and minimally invasive diagnostic surgeries are almost always done on an outpatient basis. This means patients do not need to stay in the hospital and can return home shortly after the test.
