DEXA Bone Density Test

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.

Type:
Imaging

Diagnostic Radiology (X-ray)

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.

Type:
Imaging

Intravenous Pyelogram

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.

Type:
Imaging

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

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.

Type:
Imaging

Mammograms / Digital Mammograms

Mammograms and digital mammograms are one of the most important tools in the early detection of breast cancer.

Type:
Imaging

Nuclear Medicine

Nuclear medicine scans are unique because the exam evaluates how the body works.

Type:
Imaging

Open MRI

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.

Type:
Imaging

PET/CT Scans

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.

Type:
Imaging

Ultrasound

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.

Type:
Imaging

Venous Duplex Scan

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.

Type:
Imaging

Virtual Colonoscopy (VC)

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.

Type:
