We provide a full range of diagnostic and minimally invasive imaging treatments.
Types of Imaging Exams
The most common imaging technique, X-rays:
- Use a small amount of radiation
- Produce pictures of the internal structures of your body
- Are used to locate bone fractures, foreign objects, injury or infection
Read more about X-rays.
Computed Tomography, CT or CAT scans:
- Combine X-ray scans to produce cross-sectional or 3D images
- Shows surgeons exactly where to operate
- Make clearer and more detailed images than X-rays do
- Are used to diagnose a range of issues, including cancer, bowel obstruction, brain disorders, more
Learn more about CT scans.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging or MRIs:
- Use radio waves and a strong magnetic field, not radiation
- Produce very detailed, clear images
- Are used to evaluate tumors and diseases of the liver, heart and bowel and to examine the brain and spine
- May not be suitable if you have any type of metal in your body
Learn more about MRIs.
Ultrasounds, or sonograms:
- Use sound waves, not radiation
- Are commonly used to examine pregnant women and children
- Often produce clearer images of soft tissue than X-rays
This imaging procedure:
- Uses X-rays
- Creates real-time movies by passing continuous beams through your body
- Shows details of moving body parts, dyes or instruments
Learn about different types of fluoroscopy.
Mammograms come in two forms:
- Screening mammograms, low-dose X-rays that can detect breast cancer
- Diagnostic mammograms, which examine masses discovered in a screening mammogram
Fnd out which type of mammogram best suits you.
Bone Density Test (DEXA)
Dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) helps determines if you have osteoporosis by measuring the density of your bones.
Digestive Tract Radiology Exams
We have a range of procedures for diagnosing gastrointestinal disease.
Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (MRS)
This technology produces images that show the metabolism of brain tumors, seizures, dementia and stroke, using equipment that requires a special, highly complex facility.
Positron Emission Tomography (PET)
PET scans employ the latest technology to show metabolic activity in your body's tissue. PET/CT scans combine PET and CT scans in a single machine, yielding information about metabolism and anatomy in a single exam.
