Available Testing Includes:

CT Imaging

CT Imaging uses X-Rays in conjunction with computing algorithms to image the body. In CT, an X-Ray generating tube opposite an X-ray detector (or detectors) in a ring shaped apparatus rotate around a patient producing a computer generated cross-sectional image (tomogram). Radiocontrast agents are often used with CT for enhanced delineation of anatomy. Intravenous contrast can allow 3D reconstructions of arteries and veins. CT can detect more subtle variations in attenuation of X-rays.

Digital Mammography

Digital mammography is improved technology, providing several advantages to traditional mammography. Digital images are immediately available and their quality can be immediately assessed, meaning patients spend less time in the exam room and rarely need to repeat the process. Digital images provide more information, increase the accuracy of your diagnosis, and facilitate earlier and better detection of disease.

MRI Scans

MRI scans give the best soft tissue contrast of all the imaging modalities. With advances in scanning speed and spatial resolution, and improvements in computer 3D algorithms and hardware, MRI has become an essential tool in musculoskeletal radiology.

Nuclear Medicine Imaging

Nuclear medicine imaging involves the administration into the patient of radiopharmaceuticals consisting of substances with affinity for certain body tissues labeled with radioactive tracer. The heart, lungs, thyroid, liver, gallbladder, and bones are commonly evaluated for particular conditions using these techniques.

Radiographic/Fluoroscopic

Radiographic/fluoroscopic, digital imaging machinery, provides standard x-rays as well as live, real time moving images essential for upper GI diagnosis. The new technology is housed in the Lee Wisnoski Memorial X-Ray Room, named in honor of the long-time hospital employee.

Ultrasound

Ultrasound (high-frequency sound waves) visualize soft tissue structures in the body in real time and is used on masses or tumors. It is safe for obstetrical imaging and is used for some vascular studies, particularly of the carotid arteries.
