Diagnostic Imaging and Biopsies

We invest in the very latest diagnostic imaging equipment to ensure accuracy when a deeper look is needed. Rest assured, our equipment rivals that found in larger cities, so you can receive your care close to home, eliminating the need to travel.

If you need a biopsy — a sample of tissue removed for further testing — AVH offers technology that is the best in the country, including stereotactic and ultrasound-guided biopsies that allow you to sit up and receive a biopsy in seconds, with little pain and bleeding.
