We take pride in making doctors, medical offices and patients experience all that we have to offer, including: High Field MRI, Open MRI, CT, X-Ray, Ultrasound, Bone Density and Mammography services. Our outstanding commitment to quality care is evidenced by our being awarded both the ACR and AAAHC Accreditations, which are considered the gold standard of excellence in our field.
Ultrasound, also called sonography, uses sound waves to develop ultrasound images of what’s going on inside the body. An instrument called a transducer emits high-frequency sound, inaudible to human ears, and then records the echoes as the sound waves bounce back to determine the size, shape, and consistency of soft tissues and organs.
A computed tomography (CT) scan uses x-rays to make detailed pictures of structures inside of the body. During the test, you will lie on a table that is attached to the CT scanner (which is a large doughnut-shaped machine). The CT scanner sends x-rays through the body area being studied.
Bone mineral density (BMD) testing generally correlates with bone strength and is used to diagnose osteoporosis. The BMD is measured with a dual energy x-ray absorptiometry test (referred to as a DXA scan).
An x-ray is a quick, painless test that produces images of the structures inside your body, particularly your bones. X-ray beams can pass through your body, but they are absorbed in different amounts depending on the density of the material they pass through.
A mammogram is an x-ray test of the breasts (mammary glands) used to screen for breast problems, such as a lump, and whether a lump is fluid-filled (a cyst) or a solid mass. A mammogram is done to help screen for, or detect, breast cancer.
