Our procedures include diagnostic imaging as well as the following services:
MRI - A noninvasive medical test that uses a powerful magnet to produce pictures of organs, soft tissues, bone and other structures.
Bone density testing - A test that tells you if you have normal bone density, low bone density (osteopenia) or osteoporosis. It is the only test that can diagnose osteoporosis. The lower your bone density, the greater your risk of breaking a bone.
Mammography – A diagnostic screening tool that uses low-energy X-rays to examine the human breast with the purpose of early detection of breast cancer,
Ultrasound – A test that uses high-frequency sound waves to create images of organs and systems within the body.
CT Scan (Computerized Tomography) - combines a series of X-ray views taken from many different angles and computer processing to create cross-sectional images of the bones and soft tissues inside the body.
Fluoroscopy – An imaging technique that uses X-rays to obtain real-time moving images of the internal structures of a patient through the use of a machine called a fluoroscope.
Appointments are readily available, and routine X-rays can be done on a walk-in basis. A physician's order is required for all exams.
