Our Imaging and Radiology Department utilizes state-of-the-art technology for a wide range of preventive screenings and diagnostic imaging.
The Imaging team includes American Board of Radiology-certified radiologists, specialized technologists and highly trained support staff who work with you on treatment options in neurologic, orthopedic, oncologic and cardiovascular disorders, providing ACR Gold Standard diagnostic, therapeutic and consultative radiologic services.
We offer three breast exam options: Ultrasounds, stereotactic biopsies and 3-D mammography.
- Ultrasound technology uses high-frequency sound waves to produce images for breast screenings that help diagnose possible conditions or issues in the breast.
- The stereotactic biopsy is a minimally invasive alternative to a surgical biopsy and pinpoints the exact location of a breast mass by using a computer and x-rays taken from two different angles.
- 3-D mammography imaging creates a more comprehensive view of the breast tissue. The 3-D images can be enhanced and rotated which helps us differentiate between abnormalities and benign cysts. Since its introduction, the 3-D mammogram has significantly reduced the rate of false positives and unnecessary re-exams.
Our 64-slice CT scans are a valuable diagnostic x-ray tool that creates a high-resolution image and can scan the entire body in 30 seconds, providing four times more detail than a standard CT scan
This amazing level of detail allows us to diagnose issues with more precision and is used to detect issues with the lungs, heart, abdomen, brain, chest, joints, bones, pelvis, sinuses, jaw and mouth, neck, and urinary system.
CT scans help diagnose conditions like cancer, cardiovascular disease, stroke, vascular disease and infectious diseases.
MRI uses a magnetic field and high-frequency radio waves to produce detailed images without emitting radiation. Our MRI is wider and less confined than a standard MRI to help patients have a more comfortable experience.
The MRI provides detailed views of internal organs, muscles, nerves, blood vessels and soft tissue with amazing clarity and is used to diagnose a number of conditions like:
- Alzheimer's and dementia
- Cardiovascular disease
- Musculoskeletal issues
Ultrasound technology uses high-frequency sound waves to produce images of structures in the body. Our 3-D and 4-D Ultrasound images provide valuable information to help with diagnosing and treating a variety of diseases and conditions. We provide ultrasounds for:
- Joint inflammation
- Bone disease
- Gallbladder disease
- Evaluating blood flow
- Cancer detection (breast, prostate and evaluating other cancers)
- Guided needle for biopsies and tumor treatment
- During pregnancy and to monitor the developing baby's progress
The fluoroscopy procedure is a type of imaging where a continuous x-ray image is projected, much like an x-ray movie. Some of the procedures fluoroscopy is used for are:
- Viewing the GI track
- Placing devices in the body
- Viewing blood vessels and organs
- Orthopedic surgery
Dual energy x-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) uses low-energy x-rays to measure the density of bones and can be useful in diagnosing osteoporosis. The scan is performed on the lower spine, hip and sometimes forearm.
