Routine x-rays for all eligible beneficiaries require a written/electronic referral from a health care provider. A technician is on-call weekends and holidays to support the Acute Care Clinic. There is no radiologist assigned to the clinic. All x-ray images produced at 319th MDG are transmitted to MacDill AFB radiologists for interpretation. Please make all requests for x-ray images to be taken to a downtown health care provider two days prior to appointment.
TRICARE Prime patients age 40 to 49 can refer themselves to Altru Clinic for a routine screening mammogram every two years and patients age 50 and over can refer themselves every year. If you do not meet the above criteria, you will need a consult from a physician to get a mammogram.
