MRI scans are probably the safest of all imaging examinations. The process does not require the use of ionizing radiation, and contrast media used during a MRI has very low incidence of side effects.
Computed Axial Tomography, commonly called a CAT scan or CT Scan, provides today’s physicians with a relatively inexpensive imaging tool for the diagnosis of many different diseases, defects and injuries.
Positron Emission Tomography, or PET scan, is a nuclear imaging technique used to measure the metabolic activity in tissue cells. The results from PET scans only identify anomalies in the area of the body that was scanned.
3D mammography is a revolutionary screening breast imaging tool to improve the early detection of breast cancer. This process is similar to how a computed tomography (CT) or CAT scanner produces images of structures inside of the body. 3D mammography uses very low dose x-rays.
We use full-field digital mammography for diagnostic accuracy and the early detection of breast disease. Our state-of-the-art equipment captures images digitally and feeds the data to computer-aided detection software used to interpret your results.
Digital 4-D ultrasound creates images of soft tissue and internal organs by reflecting sound waves off the internal anatomic structures. In turn, our radiologists have more information of a better quality to use for an effective diagnosis.
Most of us reached our optimum bone mass during early adulthood. We use Bone Densitometry to measure the exact decline of bone density for our patients during the rest of his or her life. This gradual to extreme loss of bone mass is a condition known as Osteoporosis.
Digital x-rays are a filmless form of radiography where images are captured using digital sensors instead of photographic film. This allows us to preview images immediately and apply any special processing techniques to enhance the image produced by the digital x-ray.
Lung Cancer Screening Program
The low-dose CT screening can find lung cancers early and the exam is quick and painless. No medications are given and no needles are used. Most commercial insurance companies provide coverage for this screening for patients determined to be at high risk for lung cancer.
