Computed Tomography (sometimes called CT or CAT scan) is a painless test that combines x-rays and computers to produce cross sectional images that appear as slices. The result is a detailed picture that may show problems with soft tissues (such as the lining of sinuses), organs (such as kidneys or lungs) and bones.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) uses a powerful magnetic field, radio waves and a computer to produce detailed pictures of the body’s internal structures that are clearer, more detailed and more likely in some instances to identify and accurately characterize disease than other imaging methods.
We offer a range of screening studies for health maintenance. Whether part of an annual routine or a one-time assessment, our screening services can evaluate the presence of abnormalities in many different areas.
Ultrasound imaging uses a transducer or probe to generate sound waves and produce pictures of the body’s internal structures. It does not use ionizing radiation, has no known harmful effects, and provides a clear picture of soft tissues that don’t show up well on x-ray images.
Nuclear Medicine uses a small amount of radioactive matter (tracer) and a special camera to form images. This procedure is used to visualize the structure and function of an organ tissue, bone or system of the body.
