Diagnostic Imaging in the Big Horn Basin

To schedule an appointment at the Cody Regional Health Radiology Department please call 307.578.2857.

Radiology is the medical field focused on diagnostic image testing. An imaging 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.

Cody Regional Health has a full-service imaging department. We provide routine radiology tests, including:

  • Fluoroscopy
  • Digital mammography
  • Ultrasound general and echocardiography
  • Many interventional procedures
  • Nuclear medicine
  • DEXA scanning
  • Computed axial tomography (CT)
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
  • Stereotactic breast biopsy

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 tests, 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 form 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.

  • "ER department went to great lengths to make this "out of towner" feel comfortable. Dr. Polley and Nurse Sarah were very professional and had a great bedside manner. It was my worst asthma attack and I felt very confident that I was getting top notch care."

    - Kelly
  • "Had to bring my daughter for a shoulder injury, on July 4th. I was thoroughly impressed. The staff was absolutely great, very friendly and compassionate. They took great care of my daughter and explained the diagnosis and discharge orders with great detail. I only wish our ER back home could be this professional. I know this is a smaller town and more tight knit, but this hospital/ER could set an example for the rest of the country. Thanks to the staff, physician and PA for the excellent care."

  • "I was a walk in patient on 5/29/18. I had been sick for several days while on a month long motorhome trip. The reception staff was friendly and efficient. I was seen quickly by the PA on duty, Robert Lang. He listened to me, did an exam, diagnosed my illness as acute bronchitis, and prescribed the necessary medication. I was feeling better in just a few days which enabled me to enjoy the remainder of my trip. I was sick and a long way from home so I really appreciated the excellent and friendly care that I received."
