Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
MRI is a non-invasive way for your doctor to examine your organs, tissues and skeletal
system. It produces high-resolution images of the inside of the body that help diagnose a
variety of problems.
Multi Slice Computerized Tomographic Scanning (MSCT)(CT Scan)
A computerized tomography (CT) scan combines a series of X-ray images taken from different angles around your body and uses computer processing to create cross-sectional
images (slices) of the bones, blood vessels and soft tissues inside your body. CT scan images provide more-detailed information than plain X-rays do.
Digital Breast Tomosynthesis (DBT) / Mammogram
A mammogram is an X-ray study of the breasts. A screening mammogram is used for patients who are asymptomatic in order to detect disease as early as possible and is
recommended to be performed annually for women beginning at age 40. A diagnostic mammogram is used to evaluate patients with a breast lump, discharge or discomfort.
An ultrasound scan uses high-frequency sound waves to create images of the inside of the
body. Ultrasound scans, or sonography, are safe because they use sound waves or echoes
to make an image, instead of radiation.
General Radiography with Computed Radiography System (X-Ray with CR)
An X-ray is a quick, painless test that produces images of the structures inside your body — particularly your bones.
X-ray beams pass through your body, and they are absorbed in different amounts depending on the density of the material they pass through.
Fluoroscopy is a study of moving body structures--similar to an X-ray "movie." A continuous X-ray beam is passed through the body part being examined. The beam is transmitted to a TV-like monitor so that the body part and its motion can be seen in detail.
Bone Mineral Densitometry (BMD)
A bone mineral density test, sometimes just called a bone density test, detects whether you have osteoporosis.
