The Kaweah Health Difference

Kaweah Health Imaging Center features the latest technology to ensure that patients receive the best diagnostic services. Our all-digital imaging dramatically reduces wait times and provides referring physicians reports within 24 hours.

All of our imaging equipment is located conveniently on-site to better serve our patients and their physicians, minimizing the need to travel to multiple facilities.

Available Services

MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging)

MRI technologists at Kaweah Health Imaging have over 20 years of experience.

We use a GE 1.5 tesla Hi Speed Plus MRI for speedy, extremely detailed MRI images. This MRI machine features a smaller, open housing, so only the body part being imaged goes inside the machine, creating a more comfortable environment that will make your exam less stressful.

MRI is valuable tool for diagnosing a broad range of conditions including cancer, heart and vascular disease, stroke, and musculoskeletal disorders.

CT Scan (Computed Tomography) also known as CAT Scan

Canon’s Aquilion Prime 160 slice CT equipment offers the highest technology in the area. Scans are complete within seconds and provide patients the most comfortable experience available. Our highly experienced CT technologists are focused on delivering world class care and providing superior images for our physicians and patients.

A CT scan can be used to study many parts of the body, such as the chest, abdomen, pelvis, and extremities. It can also acquire images of internal organs that would otherwise be too hard to see, such as brain, sinuses, liver, pancreas, intestines, kidneys, adrenal glands, lungs, heart, and blood vessels. CT is also used to scan prior to surgery for hip, knee, or transcatheter aortic valve replacements (TAVR).

Digital Imaging Units

Our diagnostic x-ray units use completely digital technology. An x-ray is taken, and within several seconds, the image is on a monitor, and the patient on their way home.

Picture Archiving Communications System (PACS)

Kaweah Health Imaging Center is a film-less facility, meaning physicians can access any films taken at Kaweah Health Imaging Center or at Kaweah Health Medical Center for immediate electronic viewing online, at the hospital, their office or their homes. The speed in which we provide the information for physicians to provide treatment could not be faster.


Kaweah Health Imaging Center provides a wide-range of ultrasound services performed by licensed technologists with more than 23 years of experience. We feature ultrasound technology with color AoW and Doppler capabilities.

Digital Mammography

Kaweah Health Breast Center is home to Visalia's first digital mammography units. A digital mammogram uses a special detector to capture and convert x-ray energy into digital data. Digital technology also offers better visibility of the entire breast. In addition, digital now makes the mammogram process faster than film and is available to the radiologist electronically, providing extremely detailed results instantly.

The combination of full-field digital mammography equipment in conjunction with the MammoPad breast cushion, dramatically eases the discomfort some women experience during their exam. This state-of-the-art technology and added comfort makes Kaweah Health Breast Center the number one choice for patients choosing a mammography provider.

Breast MRI

Added in spring of 2007, Kaweah Health Imaging Center became the first center in Tulare County to provide breast MRI technology. MRI of the breast is not a replacement for mammog­raphy or ultrasound imaging, but rather a supple­mental tool for detecting and staging breast cancer and other breast abnormalities.

Kaweah Health Imaging Center's Breast Center is accredited by the Food and Drug Administration and the American College of Radiology. We are a Softer Mammogram Provider, one of only two centers in the Central Valley with this designation.
