Bone Density

Bone density scanning, also called bone densitometry or DEXA (short for dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry) is a noninvasive, painless imaging procedure used to measure bone mineral density. Learn more

CT (Computed Tomography)

CT imaging uses special X-ray equipment to produce multiple images or pictures of the inside of the body and a computer to join them together in cross-sectional views of the area being studied. The images can then be examined on a computer monitor or printed. Learn more

Diagnostic (X-Ray)

X-rays are used for many purposes, such as determining if a bone is broken, seeing internal organs and looking for cancer. In some forms ofX-rays, a chemical called contrast medium is given to help outline a specific body area the images. Learn more

Interventional Radiology (Specials)

Interventional Radiology (IR or VIR for Vascular Interventional Radiology) is a subspecialty of radiology in which minimally invasive procedures are performed using image guidance (fluoroscopy/X-Ray). IR is used for diagnostic and therapeutic care for a wide variety of vascular and nonvascular conditions throughout the body. Learn more

Mammography

Mammography is a type of imaging used specifically for examining breast tissue. During a mammography exam, most commonly known as a mammogram, four or more low radiation X-ray images of the breast are captured, with the breast being positioned and compressed briefly for each image. Learn more

MRI

MRI, or magnetic resonance imaging, is a no ninvasive procedure used to provide images of the body’s internal structures. MRI uses a magnetic field, radio waves and a computer to generate clear, exceptionally detailed "pictures" of the area of interest, without using radiation. It is a painless procedure. Learn more

Nuclear Medicine

The images taken using Nuclear Medicine can diagnose many different diseases or physiological issues. Some of these issues include: infection, kidney function, gallbladder function and thyroid function. It can also be used in the detection of cancer, tumors and metastatic processes. Learn more

PET/CT

PET stands for Positron Emission Tomography, which is a type of nuclear medicine imaging. There are many uses for PET scans, but the most common are to stage, diagnose and determine the effectiveness of cancer treatments. PET can also be used to image the brain to identify abnormalities such as seizures, tumors, Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. Learn more

Ultrasound (Sonography)

Ultrasound imaging, also called sonography, is a medical diagnostic procedure that uses sound waves to produce an image. Since it uses sound waves and not ionizing radiation (X-rays) to obtain images of the internal organs and vessels, it is deemed safer for use in evaluating pregnant women and patients of all ages. Ultrasound is a painless test used to evaluate organs and tissues in the body to diagnose various conditions and damage that may be caused by an illness. Learn more
