Imaging Services

Patient-friendly, high-quality care

One of the first steps in treating any condition is an accurate diagnosis. In many cases, the starting point for physicians to make that diagnosis is to have clear, accurate images of the body. That’s the reason high tech equipment matters — things like MRIs and CT scans provide your doctor an incredibly detailed picture of what’s going on inside your body, which helps us help you get better.

At Fountain Valley Regional Hospital, we have fully-equipped digital imaging in the hospital, a Center for Breast Care (CBC) and an affiliated outpatient imaging center, Newhope Imaging, where you can get all the screening and diagnostic imaging you need, all on one campus.

Our diagnostic imaging services include:

  • General radiology including modified barium swallows, and VCUG for pediatric patients
  • Bone Densitometry
  • CT Scans including general and biopsies of lung and renal
  • Interventional Radiology including stroke intervention, embolization, angiograms and pain management
  • MRI including pediatric and adult sedation cases
  • Nuclear Medicine, including cardiac stress testing
  • Port placements, PICC line placements
  • Screening and Diagnostic Mammography at Newhope Imaging

Seven Ways to Prevent Sprains and Strains

Sprains and strains are nothing to dismiss – and the pain will tell you that much. Here’s the difference:

  • Sprains are when one or more ligaments are stretched or torn. (Ligaments connect two or more bones at a joint.)
  • Strains happen when a muscle or tendon is stretched or torn. (Muscles and tendons are the tissue that connects muscles to bones.)

The amount of time it takes to heal varies dependent on the person and the severity. However, it can take up to a few months before you are back to normal. To maintain your active life, here are a few ways to avoid injury.

Take Seven Steps to Prevent Sprains and Strains


Exercise consistently to maintain strength.

Warm up and stretch before sports.

Avoid exercise when tired or in pain.

Eat a well-balanced diet to keep muscles strong.

Be aware of falling hazards (dark stairways, uneven sidewalks, toys on the floor)

Keep shoes in good shape and fitting well / not worn out.

Wear protective equipment or braces during sports.

What to Do if You Twist Your Ankle, Knee or Wrist

Signs of sprain or strain include:

  • Pain, swelling, bruising, inability to use the joint

Talk with a doctor to confirm a diagnosis and the doctor may recommend compression, a boot or a splint. In the meantime:

  • Rest the injury, elevating if possible.
  • Apply ice in a bag or a cold pack 4-8 times a day for 20 minutes each.
  • Take over the counter medicine, such as ibuprofen or aspirin.
