MRI / Open MRI

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a large, donut-shaped machine which uses a strong magnetic field to produce high resolution images of your internal organs to characterize potential disease processes. MRI is a noninvasive procedure and uses NO radiation.

CT Scan

Computed tomography (CT) is a fast, noninvasive imaging test which uses a rotating x-ray source (ionizing radiation) to create high resolution images of your internal organ. The CT scanner is a large, donut-shaped machine that allows us to characterize potential disease processes. CT can be used to evaluate numerous conditions, including chest pain, bone pain, back pain, headache, neurologic symptoms, abdominal pain, abnormal laboratory tests, vascular abnormalities, sinus disease, and various tumors/masses.  We also use CT in lung cancer screening and coronary calcium scoring.

X-Ray

Radiography uses x-rays (radiation) and commonly evaluates disease processes involving the chest, bones, joints, and abdomen.  X-ray requires no special preparation.  Leave jewelry at home, and be sure to empty your pockets (you may be asked to wear a gown). 

X-Ray


Ultrasound

Ultrasound is a noninvasive imaging test which uses sound waves to create high resolution images of your internal organs. Ultrasound uses NO radiation. The ultrasound machine is a relatively small, mobile, bedside device with a probe held against your skin. Warm gel is used to transmit sound wave between the probe and your body. You will be asked to lie on a padded stretcher, and may be asked to roll on your side to improve the quality of the images. The sonographer may also use gentle probe pressure; let her know if you feel discomfort or if you feel anything unusual.

DEXA Bone Density Screening

Bone densitometry (DEXA or dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry) uses low dose radiation to measure bone mineral density. Your hip and lumbar spine are most commonly measured. This exam can help your healthcare provider diagnose and monitor osteopenia or osteoporosis (bone loss).

DEXA Bone Density Screening


Selenia 3D Mammography

It is one of the most effective early detection methods the medical community has as some lumps may appear on the x-ray years before it may be felt.  Mammograms are recommended for women aged 40 and older or have a familial history of breast cancer.  Mammography services are generally covered 100% by insurance once every 365 days (or 1 year).

Computed tomography (CT) is a fast, noninvasive imaging test which uses a rotating x-ray source (ionizing radiation) to create high resolution images of your internal organ. The CT scanner is a large, donut-shaped machine that allows us to characterize potential disease processes.
