Types of Tests
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a non-invasive radiology imaging exam that aids physicians in diagnosing and treating medical conditions. MRI uses a powerful magnet, pulsed radio frequency waves and specialized computer software to produce detailed images of internal organs, soft tissues and bone.
Computerized tomography (CT) or computerized axial tomography CAT scans, uses a computer that takes data from several x-ray images of structures inside your body and converts them into cross-section images of the body and organs.
An X-Ray (radiograph) is a non-invasive medical test that helps physicians diagnose and treat medical conditions. Imaging with X-rays involved exposing a part of the body to small dose of ionizing radiation to produce pictures of the inside of the body.
There is no need to schedule x-rays and pre-registration is not required.
Positron emission tomography, also called PET imaging or a PET scan, is a type of nuclear medicine 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.
Offered by appointment exclusively at our Women’s Imaging Center, Mammography uses low energy X-rays to examine the breast. It is first and best defense against breast cancer.
