Lake Regional Imaging Center is a state-of-the-art outpatient imaging facility adjacent to the Osage Beach Medical Park on Nichols Road. Hours of operation are 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
The center is connected with Lake Regional Health System's computer system, which makes it easier for doctors to view their test results and reports. Imaging services offered include computed tomography (CT), cardiac CT, open and hybrid high field magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), mobile positron emission topography and computed tomography (PET/CT), ultrasound, digital X-ray, bone density testing and body composition analysis.
Open Bore MRI
Lake Regional Imaging Center recently installed an open bore MRI system, which combines patient comfort and image quality. The new, open design accommodates patients of all ages and sizes, including seniors, children and large patients. It also reduces feelings of anxiety and claustrophobia. For many exams, the patient’s feet go in first and their head remains outside the system, something that hasn’t been possible in open MRI systems before. That feature means that 60 percent of examinations can be performed with the patient’s head outside the chamber.
Women's Imaging Services
Our services include digital mammography, breast MRI, breast ultrasound, non-invasive breast biopsy, bone density testing and body composition analysis.
Patients enjoy same-day appointments, convenient parking and a streamlined registration process. All tests are performed based on a referring physician's orders and are promptly read by one of our board-certified radiologists upon completion of the exam. The results are then communicated to the referring physician to share with the patient.
