A Guide to Common Medical and Imaging Tests
Medical and imaging tests are often required to evaluate a child’s condition and help determine the appropriate care and treatment. Our electronic medical record system gives physicians and staff a comprehensive view of all the health care services a child has received from anywhere in the MultiCare Health System. Digital imaging capabilities replace the need for tracking down film X-rays, with images that are instantly accessible from a computer in the clinician's office or exam room.
Below are explanations of some of the common tests we perform at Mary Bridge.
