What should patients expect during the diagnostic testing process?
Patients can drive up to the door and receive complimentary valet parking. The staff at Medical Center Arlington will greet you and escort you to your imaging destination. Our imaging department technicians are certified experts and they work to ensure that a patient’s visit is as comfortable and informative as possible. A digital technology called PACS stores all images electronically. These images can then be transferred throughout the hospital to be viewed from various locations including doctors’ offices and other remote locations.
