Advanced imaging technology
Our diagnostic imaging tests and procedures include:
- A computerized tomography (CT) scan allows radiologists to see inside your body using a combination of X-rays and computers to get pictures of your organs, bones and other tissues. CT scans are often used to detect conditions such as joint and bone injuries, internal bleeding, cancer, heart disease, emphysema, tumors, blood clots, excess fluid and infections.
- Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) allows radiologists to use radio waves, magnets and computers to take detailed pictures of the inside of your body and determine how well you've responded to treatment. Unlike CT scans, radiation is not used to capture MRI images.
- Ultrasound imaging (sonography) allows radiologists to use sound waves to capture images inside of your body. It is commonly used to help diagnose infections, swelling or heart conditions, guide biopsies and examine babies in utero (in the womb). Ultrasounds are noninvasive and do not use radiation.
- Image-guided biopsies are an integral part of identifying if cells are cancerous as well as the progression or stage of cancer. Our experienced staff uses a combination of minimally invasive techniques, MRI, CT scans and ultrasounds to secure tissue for evaluation.
