Covid 19 UPDATES
Angier Imaging Center Procedure Updates:
Your imaging needs continue to be our top priority at Valley Radiology!
We will continue to serve our referring offices, patients and our community for any emergent or urgently needed exams in the safest way possible.
Please continue to send all referrals to our office and we will schedule patients accordingly.
Based off recommendations from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and American College of Radiology (ACR), Valley Radiology Angier Imaging Center will delay scheduling of all non-emergent exams. This interim policy is to help minimize the risk of spreading or contracting COVID-19. These exams include:
* Routine screening mammography
* Bone density screening
* Lung cancer screening
* Follow up exam processes in asymptomatic patients that will not likely have an immediate impact on patient’s condition:
o Pulmonary nodules
o Stable hepatic or renal nodules
o Aortic aneurysm follow up
We ask that all referrals for studies involving patients that are higher than normal at-risk individuals (over the age of 65, diabetics or individuals with heart or lung disease) be considered for imaging at a later date.
We thank you for your patience and understanding as this situation is ever-changing.
Please contact us with any questions, concerns or urgent needs.
