3D Digital Mammography
3D Digital Mammography is an advanced, clinically proven screening and diagnostic tool designed for early breast cancer detection.
Bone Density (DXA Scan)
Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) is a non-invasive and painless test used to measure bone mineral density and determine bone health. DXA uses low-dose X-rays and is usually performed on the lower spine and hips.
Computed Tomography (CT Scan)
Computed Tomography (CT) scanning uses specialized X-ray equipment to produce cross-sectional images of the body. Unlike general X-ray which creates a single image, CT is sensitive to subtle differences in body tissues and reconstructs a volume representation of the area examined using a thin X-ray beam.
Interventional Radiology (IR) uses guidance by imaging modalities to perform procedures through very small incisions in the skin. Procedures include but are not limited to biopsies, drainage of fluid or infected collections, placement of devices to access veins for therapy, thermal ablations, and cryoablations.
Because MRI must use a strong magnetic field, there are certain medical devices such as pacemakers, cochlear implants, and certain cerebral aneurysm clips that may interfere with or represent possible risk...
Nuclear Medicine is an imaging modality that shows the physiologic function of the system being imaged. A variety of radiopharmaceutical agents are used for different types of exams. A small dose is given and biologic activity of different body organs is tracked by a very sensitive camera. Examples include but are not limited to studies of the skeletal system, heart, liver, gallbladder, kidneys and stomach.
PET scanning uses a special radiopharmaceutical that tracks the degree of body tissue metabolism. It is particularly useful for detection of many types of cancer and to check for tumor spread. This modality is also used to assess for response in certain types of tumor after treatment, to better guide future therapy.
Radioembolization is a minimally invasive way of delivering therapeutic radiation to liver tumors, while minimizing the amount of radiation delivered to normal healthy liver.
Ultrasound uses reflected sound waves to image inside the body. Similar to an echo from a canyon wall, the ultrasound machine sends out high-frequency and inaudible sound waves that reflect off body structures. A computer receives the reflected waves and reconstructs images of tissues and fluid. This exam uses no radiation.
A Radiograph is an X-Ray image obtained by emitting a short X-ray pulse and using a digital detector to visualize a body part for diagnostic interpretation.
