Our Diagnostic Services
Mammography is a specific type of imaging that uses a low-dose x-ray system to examine breasts. A mammography exam, called a mammogram, is used to aid in the diagnosis of breast diseases in women.
CT Colonography is used to screen for cancers and other conditions affecting the colon. This study looks for significant growths, such as polyps, within your rectum and colon. Polyps are growths on the colon's lining that sometimes grow into cancers.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a scanning procedure that uses strong magnets and radio-frequency pulses to generate images (or pictures) of the inside of your body.
DXA/Bone Mass Density
Dual X-ray Absorptiometry (DXA) scan is the preferred technique for measuring bone strength, density, and mineral content. It is the primary method is screening for Osteoporosis.
Computed Tomography (CT)
CT imaging combines special x-ray equipment with sophisticated computers to produce multiple images or pictures of the inside of the body.
Nuclear medicine is a branch of medical imaging that uses small amounts of radioactive material to diagnose or treat a variety of diseases, including many types of cancers, heart disease and certain other abnormalities within the body.
An X-ray is a common imaging test that’s been used for decades. It can help your doctor view the inside of your body without having to make an incision. This can help them diagnose, monitor, and treat many medical conditions.
Ultrasound imaging involves exposing part of the body to high-frequency sound waves to produce pictures of the inside of the body. Ultrasound exams do not use ionizing radiation (as used in x-rays). Because ultrasound images are captured in real-time, they can show the structure and movement of the body’s internal organs, as well as blood flowing through blood vessels.
& Pain Management
Interventional Radiology is the subspecialty field of radiology that involves minimally invasive procedures image-guided procedures to diagnose and treat diseases in nearly every organ system.
Our Interventional Radiology
& Pain Management Services
Vascular interventional radiology is the use of imaging to guide minimally invasive vascular procedures, such as stenting or angioplasty to help restore blood flow for those living with dialysis or diabetes.
Pain Management: Spine
Spinal injections are used to deliver pain relieving medication to the source of spine pain in the upper (cervical), mid (thoracic) or low (lumbar) back.
Imaging guided injections deliver corticosteroid and/or other local anesthetics to the site of pain such as a joint or muscles, both to facilitate diagnosis and provide therapeutic pain relief.
Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA)
Radiofrequency ablation, or RFA, is a minimally invasive technique that shrinks the size of tumors, nodules or other growths in the body. RFA is used to treat a range of conditions, including benign and malignant tumors, chronic venous insufficiency in the legs, as well as chronic back and neck pain.
A selective nerve root block (SNRB) injection or just nerve block injection is used to both diagnose and treat an inflamed spinal nerve
