An MRI is a diagnostic procedure that uses large magnets, radio frequency pulses and a computer to produce detailed images of organs and structures within the body.
A computed tomography scan (CT or CAT scan), is a diagnostic imaging procedure that uses a combination of x-rays and computer technology to produce cross-sectional images (often called slices) of the body.
An ultrasound, also called sonography, is a diagnostic imaging exam that uses a small transducer (probe) and ultrasound gel to expose the body to high-frequency sound waves to create images of blood vessels, tissues and organs.
An X-ray is a diagnostic test that uses small doses of radiation to produce images of internal tissues, bones and organs onto film.
A low-dose computed tomography (low-dose CT or LDCT) scan is currently the only recommended screening tool for detection of lung cancer. Low-dose CT uses an X-ray machine to make detailed images of your lungs and uses a minimal amount of radiation.
Fluoroscopy is an imaging technique commonly used by physicians to obtain real-time images of the internal structures of a patient through the use of a fluoroscope.
A bone density test is a noninvasive procedure that uses x-rays to measure bone mass. The exam provides a measurement corresponding to the mineral density of bone, used to diagnose osteopenia and osteoporosis.
Women's services are provided by board certified radiologists who sub-specialize in diagnostic mammography. These services are provided using state-of-the-art mammography equipment in an environment that is focused on focused on women’s health.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) produces images using a strong magnet and radio waves. It is a sensitive test for the detection of breast cancer, but does not take the place of mammography.
Ultrasound imaging of the breast uses sound waves to produce pictures of the internal structures of the breast. It is primarily used to help diagnose breast lumps or other abnormalities your doctor may have found during a physical exam, mammogram or breast MRI.
A bone density test, or DEXA scan, is a noninvasive procedure that uses X-rays to measure bone mass. The exam provides a measurement corresponding to the mineral density of bone, used to diagnose osteopenia and osteoporosis.
