Diagnostic Imaging Services

  • Radiology: a variety of imaging techniques including X-ray, ultrasound, CT scans, PET scans and MRI to diagnose or treat diseases.
  • Cardiac Scoring: non-invasive, painless scan of the heart utilizing the latest technology to search for signs of heart disease.
  • 64-Slice CT Scan: non-invasive scan procedure using high definition images to detect even the smallest heart artery blockages.
  • Low-dose CT Scans for lung cancer: advanced scanner looks for lung tumors using the lowest dose radiation possible for patient safety.
  • Nuclear Medicine: small, safe amounts of radioactive medicine given to patients before scans to help diagnose a variety of diseases including cancer, heart disease, gastrointestinal issues and others.
  • Ultrasound: a method of using high-frequency sound waves to produce images of organs inside your body to help diagnose a variety of diseases and conditions.
  • MRI: a method of testing that uses a large magnet and radio waves to scan internal organs inside your body and help to diagnose a variety of diseases and conditions.
  • Echocardiography: screening test that uses electrode patches in various places on the body and sound waves to create live images of the heart allowing doctors to check for blockages and other issues.
  • Stress Testing: a test where patients are fitted with electrodes and asked to walk run on a treadmill while a healthcare professional monitors your heart functions.
  • Holter Monitoring: a wearable, portable monitor with electrodes that attach to a patient and monitors heart function continuously to asses heart health during the patient’s daily routine.
  • Digital Mammography: the Lorad Selenia full field digital mammography and Hologic GeniusTM 3-D mammography delivers detailed images allowing doctors to better evaluate and screen women for the tiniest tumors or breast cancer.
  • Angiography: dye is injected into arteries that lead to your heart and X-ray is used to check for blockages and signs of heart disease.
  • PET/CT Cancer Detection: one of the most advanced non-invasive procedures available to diagnose cancer today. After an injection of medicine, the body is scanned for cancer.
  • CT 3-D Treatment Planning: enhanced image quality gives doctors the ability to view images three dimensionally to understand severity and plan the most effective treatment.
  • Vascular Imaging: high resolution scans of arteries, including carotid ultrasound, give doctors a clear view of your arteries to better develop treatment plans.
  • Bone Densitometry (osteoporosis screening): enhanced X-ray scan, usually of the lower back and hip, to test bone density.
  • Stereotactic Breast Unit: uses mammography to locate tumors and other breast abnormalities to remove tissue samples for biopsy.
  • Dual-Head Nuclear Cameras (dedicated heart camera): cutting-edge technology dual camera provides more detailed heart images for cardiologists in diagnosing heart disease.
