Cody Regional Health Radiology Services
Diagnostic Imaging in the Big Horn Basin
Radiology is the medical field focused on diagnostic image testing. An
image test is a procedure where technology is used to obtain a picture
or video of the body’s internal structures. X-rays would be an example
of imaging, but there are many more tests that provide a more detailed,
comprehensive view of the body’s organs and musculoskeletal system.

routine radiology tests, including:
- Digital mammography
- Ultrasound general and echocardiography
- Many interventional procedures

Our radiology department is certified by the American College of Radiology
in mammography and MRI.
What Can I Expect During My Imaging Test?
There is not much required on your part to prepare for an imaging test.
For some procedures, patients will need to abstain from eating and drinking
up to twelve hours before their test. You may also need to hold off on
certain medications. The requirements vary depending on the type of test,
so make sure you get all the details sorted out with your doctor beforehand.
For many imaging test, the only thing you need to do is lie still while
the test is performed. There are certain procedures where you may be asked
to move your body in order to for the imaging device to get a look at
all the areas the radiologist needs to complete the test.
When the test is completed the radiologist will review the results and
send them to your physician, who will contact you for a review.
