Thank you again for choosing Lake Medical Imaging for your diagnostic imaging needs.

Transferring Your Prior Films is Simple!

Before your appointment with us, please have any previous breast imaging studies transferred to us on CD so that your Radiologist can make an effective comparison and note any changes that might have occurred. Just download the records release form below, and mail or fax the signed release to your former provider. They will send your images/reports to Lake Medical Imaging or to you, according to your selection. To view the form listed below, you will need Adobe Reader. You may download Adobe Reader for free at www.adobe.com.

Scheduling & Appointments

Patient Coordinators will be available to schedule your appointment and answer your questions. You may schedule your appointment directly, but, for most exams, you must bring a completed physician referral form with you to the appointment. Your physician’s office can also call to schedule an appointment. Please provide 24 hour notice if you need to change your appointment so that other patients may be accommodated.

If you are having your mammogram with us for the first time, please be sure to bring previous films from your former provider. Also, prior films or CDs for any follow-up study we did not perform are important to us so that we can compare any changes that may have occurred since your previous exam.

Imaging Wisely

Lake Medical Imaging is one of the first 2,000 medical imaging providers in the nation who have taken the “Image Wisely” pledge to optimize radiation dose used in performing medical imaging on adult patients. Image Wisely (www.imagewisely.org) is a collaborative initiative of the American College of Radiology (ACR) and the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA). The initiative aims to optimize radiation dose used in adult medical imaging and to ensure that patients receive only necessary scans.  The diagnostic imaging center also participates in the “Image Gently” program for pediatric patients (www.imagegently.org).

To this end, Lake Medical Imaging adheres to a principle known as “ALARA,” (As Low as Reasonably Achievable), for all radiation exposures.

Lake Medical Imaging is also the only diagnostic imaging center in Central Florida to offer all CT patients a ‘personal radiation record’ to keep track of the date and amount of exposure, should they require multiple exams over time.

Our radiation protocols and state-of-the-art equipment keep exposure to a minimum.

  • All of our equipment is checked by a certified Medical Physicist on a regular basis.
  • Our 20 Radiologists are Board Certified by the American College of Radiology.
  • All equipment and facilities are fully accredited by the ACR, which requires adherence to the highest standards and criteria.

So, when your physician orders a diagnostic exam to complete your diagnosis and/or treatment, you can rest assured that the Radiologists and staff at Lake Medical Imaging will take every possible precaution to protect you.
