X-Ray. X-rays are a form of radiation that can pass through your body to generate images that can be viewed on a computer by your doctor.
Computed Tomography (CT). CT or CAT scans also use X-rays generated from an imaging system that rotates around your body to create 3-D pictures. These pictures give your doctor more detailed information about what’s happening inside of your body than a single X-ray image.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). MRI allows your doctors to look at the soft tissues of the body. Unlike X-rays, an MRI scanner does not use ionizing radiation. Instead, it uses a powerful magnet to align the hydrogen atoms in your body. A computer then uses this information to create detailed images.
Bone Density (DEXA). Quick and painless. This exam measures bone strength and may be helpful in predicting fracture risk. The exam helps diagnose osteoporosis in its early stages and monitor any changes.
C-Arm Flouroscopy. Uses “live” X-Rays to assist physicians with different medical procedures. Our orthopedic surgeons use it for injections and aspirations. Urologists use it to perform bladder procedures and place stents, while our vascular surgeons use it to perform arthroplastys.
