Bone Density Exam/DEXA – A technologically advanced radiographic procedure to determine bone mineral density or bone mass and diagnose osteoporosis. Exams are given to patients if there is a possibility of a fracture or if they are at risk for osteoporosis.

CT – A Computerized Tomography (CT) scan takes images of the body in cross sections. Common CT scans are used to investigate the head, chest, abdomen, blood vessels and bones. A special CT scan, called Calcium Scoring is provided on an outpatient basis and in less than 5 minutes, the heart arteries can be evaluated for blockage.

Mammography – A technological X-ray that detects possible concerns to the inside of the breast. It is recommended that women over 40 years of age are screened once a year. If a breast abnormality is visible, a stereotactic breast biopsy or surgical biopsy may be performed.

MRI – Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) allows radiologists to view a patient’s internal structures in a non-invasive way. MRI is commonly used to image the brain, spine, and musculoskeletal joints but can also diagnose aneurysms, eye and ear disorders, multiple sclerosis, strokes and tumors.

Nuclear Medicine – Procedures that use radioactive substances to create images of internal organs. Radionuclide imaging procedures help visualize the function of the heart, lungs, bones, brain, organs, tissues and systems within the body.

PET/CT – Positron Emission Tomography and Computed Tomography (PET/CT)provides doctors with scans of the inner organs. These scans are useful in the clinical areas of oncology, neurology and cardiology.

Ultrasound – A non-invasive procedure that creates a three or four-dimensional image of an internal organ. While known for viewing a fetus during pregnancy, ultrasounds can examine the appendix, bladder, kidneys, pancreas, spleen, heart, arties, veins and other organs.

X-Ray – An exam that uses small amounts of radiation to view tumors or injuries to bones and tissues. X-rays can determine breaks, dislocations and fractures and tissue X-rays can determine changes in density. Chest X-rays are often used to diagnose conditions such as COPD, pneumonia or emphysema.
