Using a CT Scan increases the detection of lung cancer at Stage 1 up to the rate of 85 percent.
Imaging & Radiology Diagnostics
Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiometry (DEXA) is a convenient and painless test to identify bone density to determine whether you have osteoporosis and if you are at risk for bone fractures.
X-ray is the oldest and most frequently used form of medical imaging used to diagnose conditions in the chest, bone, sinuses, skull, or spine.
Intravenous Pyelogram, an X-ray of the bladder, is taken by injecting dye into the blood stream which then collects in the urine and is detectable during the X-ray.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a diagnostic test that uses a magnetic field and pulses of radio wave energy to provide pictures of organs and structures inside the body.
Mammograms and digital mammograms are one of the most important tools in the early detection of breast cancer.
Nuclear medicine scans are unique because the exam evaluates how the body works.
Open MRI uses the same technology as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). It uses a magnetic field and pulses of radio wave energy to provide pictures of organs and structures inside the body.
Positron Emission Tomography (PET) is a test that uses special imaging cameras and a radioactive type of sugar to produce pictures of the function and metabolism of the cells in the body.
Ultrasound technology uses high-frequency sound waves to produce exceptionally high-quality moving images of the fetus, heart, abdominal organs and other soft tissues of the body.
Venous duplex scan is a painless exam that uses high-frequency sound waves (ultrasound) to capture images of internal views of veins that return blood to the heart.
A virtual colonoscopy (VC) is similar to a standard colonoscopy except it is much less invasive—only requiring gentle passage of air into the colon.
