The center is equipped with advanced technology and a staff of medical specialists, technologists and support staff.

 

 

Common Diagnostic Imaging Procedures:

MRI: MRI is a test that uses a magnetic field and pulses of radio wave energy to provide pictures of organs and structures inside the body. In many cases, MRI provides information that cannot be obtained from an X-ray, ultrasound, or CT scan. The MRI can detect changes in the normal structure and characteristics of organs or other tissues.

Open High Field MRI
CT Scan: A computerized tomography (CT) scan uses X-rays to produce detailed pictures of structures inside the body. A CT scan is also called a computerized axial tomography (CAT) scan. A CT scanner directs a series of X-ray pulses through the body. Each X-ray pulse lasts only a fraction of a second and generates an image of a “slice” of the organ or area being studied. The images are saved for further study. 64 Slice CT Scanner
PET/CT Scan: A PET scan shows biological data about an organ or tissue, such as blood flow and oxygen use. A CT scan is a series of x-rays that a combined to form a detailed image of organ or tissue structure. A combined PET/CT scan helps doctors evaluate organ and tissue function as well as size, shape, and location.
Ultrasound: Ultrasound imaging, also called ultrasound scanning or sonography, obtains images from inside the human body through the use of high frequency sound waves. The reflected sound wave echoes are recorded and displayed as real-time visual images. No radiation is involved in ultrasound imaging. PET CT Scanner
Fluoroscopy: Fluoroscopy uses a continuous x-ray beam to create a sequence of images that are projected onto a fluorescent screen, or television-like monitor. When used with a contrast material, this special X-ray technique makes it possible for the physician to view internal organs in motion. Still images are also captured. Ultrasound

Digital X-ray: An X-ray is a form of radiation that can be focused into a beam. When X-rays strike a piece of photographic film or a screen, they produce a picture. Dense tissues in the body, such a bones, block (absorb) many of the X-rays and appear white on an X-ray picture. Less dense tissues, such as muscles and organs, appear in shades of gray and X-rays that pass only through air, such as X-rays of the lungs or colon, appear black.

Digital Mammography Unit

Digital Mammography: A mammography is an X-ray test of the breasts used to screen for problems, such as a lump or to determine whether a lump is fluid-filled (cyst) or a solid mass. The resulting X-ray picture is called a mammogram. A mammogram helps screen for or diagnose breast cancer. Many small tumors can be seen on a mammogram before they can be felt by a woman or her health professional.

Bone Densitometry: One way to diagnose bone loss and determine a patient’s risk for fractures is to conduct a bone mineral density (BMD) test, also known as bone mass measurement or bone densitometry. BMD tests measure the amount of calcium in different regions of the bone and usually target the spine and hip, the most common areas of bone loss-related fractures. Bone Density
