MRI uses a high-powered magnet and radio waves to create accurate and detailed images. Our new Tesla MRI provides images, so detailed that abnormalities previously undetected can now be diagnosed.
One of the most commonly used tools to examine the brain, chest, abdomen, and pelvis, CT scans help diagnose a range of by taking thin slices (images) of your insides. Our 64 Slice VCT has twice the speed and coverage of traditional CT scanners and provides exceptional image quality.
The Picture Archiving Communication System (PACS) allows a team of physicians to view and manipulate images simultaneously, even from separate locations.
One of our most patient-friendly procedures, ultrasound enables us to "see" inside the body. We can evaluate blood flow, internal organs, pregnancies, cancer, abdominal disorders, blood vessel problems, pelvic disorders or other problems.
Positron Emission Tomography (PET)
PET uses a molecular imaging procedure that generates pictures of the precise location and extent of disease. This enables physicians to detect abnormal cell growth and activity - aiding in the early detection of many diseases.
X-Ray is a high-energy form of electromagnetic waves that helps physicians visualize bones, soft tissues, and some of your organs.
This imaging technology uses a special radioactive material that is picked up and visualized with nuclear technology to catch diseases affecting the gallbladder, heart, and thyroid.
Using a special "tracer" dye, physicians can visualize joints, moving organs, and even blood passing through veins.
Bone Density Screening
Effective in the diagnosis of osteoporosis, a bone density screening determines the approximate strength of a patient's bones through the amount of calcium in a specific region of the bones.
This x-ray test is used to screen for and diagnose breast cancer. The American Cancer Society recommends a baseline mammogram at age 35 and annually for all women over the age of 40 (earlier for women with personal or family histories of breast cancer). Learn more
