VA Central Iowa Health Care System
At VACIHCS our Imaging Service is comprised of multiple specialties located in the main hospital building that are available to assist the medical needs of our nation’s Veterans.
Our diagnostic service includes the following modalities:
General Radiology (X-ray exams)
DEXA scan (Bone density)
Interventional Radiology (Angiogram and special procedures)
Computed Tomography (CT scan)
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
To access Imaging Services
Imaging services are provided through a consult from your Primary Care Provider, Hospitalist or Attending Physician, Emergency Room Provider or Specialty Care Provider.
Many examinations may be performed the same day as a scheduled visit with a provider, however the majority of special exams/testing must be scheduled and the veteran may need to closely follow a detailed preparation specifically designated for such exam. Please contact the Imaging Service at 515-699-5816 if you have any questions regarding your examination or the preparations you must follow.
