Radiology/digital X-raysAn X-ray is produced when a small amount of radiation passes through the body and is digitally captured. We provide diagnostic and fluoroscopic procedures.
We offer cardiac cat scans, a painless exam using an X-ray source to take detailed images of the heart and vessels, which aids physicians in making a medical diagnosis before patients are symptomatic.
Computed Tomography (CT) technology allow physicians to capture an image from many different angles as the X-ray source rotates around the patients. After combining the images to form a three-dimensional view of the patient's body, radiologists evaluate the results and diagnose illnesses in a variety of areas such as the spine, head, abdomen and chest.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
This procedure uses a magnet linked to a computer to create detailed pictures of areas inside the body. We also offer pace-maker safe MRI.
Ultrasound is a test that bounces sound waves off tissue and organs and translates the sound waves into sonograms (pictures) rather than using radiation (X-ray technology). We also provide 4D pregnancy ultrasounds as well.
Positron emission tomography (PET) scan uses radioactive substances to look for disease in the body. A PET shows how organs and tissues are working, as opposed to the structure of and blood flow to organs (MRI/CT). PET scans are most often used to scan the brain, heart, lungs and breasts.
