Sonoma Valley Hospital offers advanced imaging services to enhance preventative care and diagnostic services for our community. Our Medical Imaging Department is committed to provide the personalized approach you expect and the trusted care you deserve.

OUR SERVICES INCLUDE:
Bone Density Scans (DEXA): Measures bone mineral density to uncover skeletal abnormalities or bone issues. Regular screenings can diagnose osteoporosis, fracture risk, and vertebral fractures. Preparation Instructions (PDF) Cómo prepararse (PDF)
Computerized Tomography (CT Scan): A computed tomography (CT) scan is an imaging method that uses x-rays to create pictures of cross-sections of the body.
General X-Ray: X-rays are a type of electromagnetic radiation, just like visible light. An x-ray machine sends individual x-ray particles in small amounts through the body that allow a doctor to see inside the body.
Mammography Screenings: Recommended annually for all women ages 40+, as well as men and women with strong family histories of breast or ovarian cancer. Sonoma Valley Hospital utilizes state-of-art 2D and 3D digital screening and diagnostic mammography technology to detect changes in the breast tissue appearances, at the Gold standard accredited by the ACR and MQSA. 3D digital mammography has been shown to increase detection of invasive breast cancer and reduce call backs for additional testing.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI): A magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan is an imaging test that uses powerful magnets and radio waves to create pictures of the body. It does not use radiation.
Nuclear Medicine: A method that uses radioactive substances to create pictures of areas inside the body. At Sonoma Valley Hospital, the myocardial stress tests, ordered by your cardiologist, are provided twice a month.
Ultrasound Imaging: Non-invasive and radiation-free, ultrasound imaging is an effective diagnostic and monitoring tool. May be used for gynecological, pediatric, pregnancy, intra-operative, and organ transplantation imaging.
