Bone Density Scan
A bone density scan, or DEXA, measures the density and mineral content in bones, most often in the hip and lower spine.
Computerized tomography, or CT, helps our radiologists see the difference between healthy and diseased tissue. This makes it possible to accurately diagnose many diseases at an early stage.
Fluoroscopy uses a continuous, low-dose X-ray, along with a contrast dye to produce images of organs and bones in real time.
Mammography is a low-dose X-ray picture of the breast that reveals masses and micro-calcifications that may indicate breast cancer.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging
MRI is an advanced medical imaging procedure that uses a powerful magnetic field, radio waves and a computer to create cross-sectional images.
Ultrasound uses sound waves and a computer to create images of internal organs and blood vessels and to monitor health conditions.
Nuclear medicine uses very small amounts of radioactive materials (also called radiopharmaceuticals) to diagnose and treat disease.
X-ray is the most frequently used medical imaging procedure. It is the fastest and easiest way for radiologists to view and assess broken bones. It is also used in the diagnosis and treatment of osteoporosis, heart disease and cancer.
