MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING (MRI)

An MRI, also known as magnetic resonance imaging, is a pain-free non-invasive medical test used to produce two dimensional images of the structures of the body. The process uses intense magnetic fields to make images of the inside of the body. An MRI scan is often used to study nerves, muscles, ligaments, bones, and other tissues in the body. An MRI is often used to evaluate the possibility of injuries to ligaments and tendons. Problems in the spine, such as a disc herniation are seen well on an MRI image. Masses and tumors within soft tissues can also be evaluated with MRI.

In some cases, a diagnosis can be made with an MRI and may prevent or indicate the need for surgery.

DEXA SCAN

A DEXA scan (dual energy x-ray absorptiometry) is a bone density test that assesses whether you have normal bone density, low bone density, or osteoporosis. Typically, a DEXA scan measures your bone density at the hip or spine, which is where most osteoporosis-related fractures occur. You may also have a forearm scan.

A DEXA scan is painless and doesn’t take a lot of time. You lie on your back on an imaging table and a mechanical device (the scanner) passes over your body. The DEXA scan emits a very low level of radiation, about one-tenth of the radiation that you get with a chest x-ray.

COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY (CT)

CT Scans (also known as CAT Scans) are a non-invasive, painless medical test that use x-rays to diagnosis many medical conditions.

• Depending on your exam, the average scan time is usually a couple of minutes.  You will be asked to lie very still for a few seconds and instructed to hold your breath.
• Your provider will let you know if contrast (oral or IV) is necessary for your exam.
• Please arrive 30 minutes prior to your appointment unless directed differently by your provider.
• Wear loose fitting comfortable clothing for your scan.
• Our CT scanners are ACR accredited for Adults, Pediatrics and Low Dose Lung Cancer Screenings.

MAMMOGRAPHY

We now offer 3D mammography in addition to the conventional 2D mammogram. A 3D mammography exam is very similar to having a conventional 2D mammogram.  Like a 2D mammogram, the technologist will position you, compress your breast, and take images from different angles.

The 3D mammography exam allows doctors to examine your breast tissue layer by layer.  So instead of viewing all of the complexities of your breast tissue in a flat image, as with conventional 2D mammography, fine details are more visible and no longer hidden by the tissue above or below.

ULTRASOUND

Ultrasound examination, also called sonogram or diagnostic medical sonography, is a non-invasive imaging method that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce precise images of structures within your body. The images produced during an ultrasound examination often provide information that’s valuable in diagnosing and treating a variety of diseases and conditions.  Since ultrasound images are captured in real-time, they can show the structure and movement of the body’s internal organs, as well as blood flow. Your ultrasound may require that you refrain from food or drink for a period of time prior to the scan.

X-RAY

An X-Ray is an electromagnetic wave of high energy and very short wavelength, which is able to pass through many materials opaque to light.

Reviews

“The staff at this facility are awesome. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. Starting with the front desk to the technologist performing the procedures. During a time that you are concerned about your health it’s so much better when you are greeted with such compassion.”
