Health Services


If you are referred to our facility for medical imaging and have questions about radiation safety or your specific exam, our team of professionals will help explain the process so you can feel confident in the care you are receiving. We offer an experienced team, ensure safety as a priority, and personalized patient care.
We’re capable of performing nearly 2,000 radiologic procedures from five different imaging modalities including X-ray, Computed Radiology (CR), Computed Tomography (CT), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Ultrasound (US), and Mammography (MG).
Currently the 375 MDG Mammography Department is only performing Diagnostic Exams for patients that are active duty. Retired service members and their family members will be referred to an off-base facility.

Patients can call or stop by our clinic to schedule appointments. Routine X-rays are walk-ins.

Women should always inform their physician or technologist if there is any possibility, they could be pregnant.

What to Expect

X-Ray Scans

Exams will take 5- 10 minutes depending on your mobility. No special preparation is required on your behalf. You may be asked to change into a gown depending on the area being imaged.

Ultrasound Scans

Ultrasound is a diagnostic procedure that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce images. We will apply a warm, hypoallergenic, water-soluble gel to your skin over the area to be imaged. We will press the transducer, wand-like device, against your skin and move it over the area(s) being examined to create the real-time images on a screen.

For an ultrasound of any upper abdominal areas including gallbladder, pancreas, liver or spleen: DO NOT eat or drink anything for 6 hours prior to your exam.

For an ultrasound of the pelvis: You will need to have a full bladder. Please drink 32-oz of water, one hour prior to your exam and do not empty your bladder before scanning.

Mammography Scans

We perform stereotactic and ultrasound-guided biopsies and offer a comprehensive Breast Pathway Clinic to include high risk evaluation services and surveillance for breast cancer.

All mammography exams at the 375th Medical Group are performed by a registered female technologist and the attending radiologist.
A technician will position your breast between two plates and compresses it for clearer imaging. They will then take images of your breast from top to bottom and side to side. The entire process typically takes 20 minutes to complete. Please refrain from applying lotions, powders, deodorants, or colognes around the breast area prior to your exam. If you are particularly sensitive, please refrain from caffeine the morning of your exam.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging Scans

The machine uses a powerful magnet, radio frequencies and an advanced computer to produce images. The scanner is a large tube that is open on both ends with an exam table running through the opening. You will need to lay mostly flat throughout the entire scan. To produce the clearest images, you should remain as still as possible for the exam’s duration. Contrast is sometimes used in conjunction with MRI procedures. It is usually administered intravenously (IV) via a catheter inserted in your hand or arm.
As the procedure begins, you will likely hear a loud thumping sound from the MRI machine. You are given hearing protection. If you have claustrophobia (fear of enclosed spaces) or anxiety, ask your physician for a prescription to relax you before your appointment.

Most MRI scans take around 20 minutes to finish, but those requiring contrast can last as long as 1 hour.

If you have an implantable device from a previous surgery (such as a pacemaker, insulin pump, bullet fragments or neuro-stimulator), please notify the MRI department at the time your exam is scheduled. If you have an information card on your implant, make sure to bring it with you at the time of your appointment.

Only certain abdominal exams will require you to fast for 4 hours prior to the exam, which you will be instructed to do when scheduling your appointment.

Computed Tomography Scans

CT (Computed Tomography) scan is a relatively fast, painless, noninvasive diagnostic procedure that produces detailed cross-sectional images of your body. Images are captured by rotating a narrow X-ray beam around you to collect data from multiple angles. These images useful to differentiate between internal organs, bones, soft tissue and blood vessels. CT  scanners look like a large, donut-shaped machine. In preparation for the scan, you will lie down on a motorized table. The motorized table will move you through the scanner while internal components of CT tube rotate around you to produce images.

From start to finish, please allow at least 45 minutes for your entire CT appointment. Only certain abdominal exams will require you to fast for 4 hours prior to the exam. Some CT exams require a contrast material to highlight certain areas of the body. The material may be iodine that will be injected through an IV line and/or barium that you may be asked to drink.
