Lab Tests & Radiology
Effective health care is based on medical evidence; the Kenner Army Health Clinic’s Clinical Laboratory Services performs the tests that provide over 70% of that evidence. These diagnostic tests help ensure your good health or find the problems that threaten it. From initial sample to final result the KAHC CLS provides caregivers medical information that supports your health. The laboratory provides patients with quality diagnostic testing. Specimen collection is discontinued fifteen minutes before the lab closing at 4 p.m. to allow the time necessary to prepare final collections and close out daily reporting requirements. All patients must contact their primary care managers or the Medical Records Department to receive their laboratory results.
Active Duty military personnel (non-AIT) may report to the laboratory on a walk-in basis for ONLY the following medical readiness (MEDPROS update) requirements:
- ABO Blood Group (Blood Type)
- DNA Repository Card (not for genetics or paternity testing) *
- Glucos-6-Phosphate Dehydrogenase (G6PD)
- Sickle Cell
- Measles, Mumps, Rubella & Varicella Antibody Titer
- Hepatitis A Antibody Titer
- Hepatitis B Antibody Titer
- Beta-HCG (immunization and overseas purposes only) *
Beta-HCG (pregnancy tests) are not authorized on walk-in basis to confirm pregnancy. All patients must schedule an appointment with their primary care provider.
For patients with laboratory testing requests or requisitions from network providers, the request cannot be greater than 60 days from the date of signature on the request. The request must be signed by the provider and/or their designee.
The Radiology Department provides diagnostic X-ray services, mammograms, and ultrasound imaging to enable prompt and accurate diagnosis by your primary care manager. The American College of Radiology Accredited the KAHC mammographic imaging services in May 2023.
This accreditation recognized Kenner’s dedication to improving women’s health. The ACR gold seal of accreditation represents the highest level of image quality and patient safety. It is awarded only to facilities meeting ACR Practice Guidelines and Technical Standards after a peer-reviewed evaluation by board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field. Image quality, personnel qualifications, adequacy of facility equipment, quality control procedures, and quality assurance programs are assessed. The findings are reported to the ACR Committee on Accreditation, which subsequently provides the practice with a comprehensive report they can use for continuous practice improvement.
