3D Mammography (Tomosynthesis)
Three-dimensional mammography and digital breast tomosynthesis, is an advanced form of breast imaging where multiple images of the breast from different angles are captured and reconstructed into a three-dimensional image set. In this way, 3-D breast imaging is similar to computed tomography (CT) imaging in which a series of thin "slices" are assembled together to create a 3-D reconstruction of the breast.
CT Scan
A diagnostic imaging procedure that uses a combination of x-rays and computer technology to produce cross-sectional images of the body. A CT scan shows detailed images of any part of the body, including the bones, muscles, fat, and organs.
CT Scan with Fluoroscopy
Computed tomography (CT) is a diagnostic imaging test used to create detailed images of internal organs, bones, soft tissue and blood vessels during real time.
CT Angiography
A non catheter test that uses dye and specialized x-rays (CT Scan) to show the inside of your vessels.
64 Slice CT Scan with Cardiac and Coronary Artery Specialty
A coronary angiogram that is performed on a CT unit without the need for placing an invasive catheter into the coronary vessels.
Breast MRI with DynaCad
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a noninvasive medical test which uses a powerful magnetic field, radio frequency pulses and a computer to produce detailed images of the breast without the use ionizing radiation (x-rays).
Digital and Computerized Radiography
Digital radiography is a form of x-ray imaging, where digital X-ray sensors are used instead of traditional photographic film. This gives advantages of immediate image preview and availability with the utilization of less ionizing radiation.
Digital Fluoroscopy
Fluoroscopy allows imaging of anatomical structures in real-time and allows the interpreting radiologist to observe structure and function.
Nuclear Medicine
Nuclear medicine imaging uses small amounts of radioactive material, a special camera and a computer to create images of the inside of your body. It provides unique information that often cannot be obtained using other imaging procedures to help diagnose many types of cancers, heart disease, gastrointestinal, endocrine, neurological disorders and other health conditions.
Positron Emission Tomography (PET)
A PET scan measures important body functions, such as blood flow, oxygen use, and sugar (glucose) metabolism, to help radiologists evaluate how well organs and tissues are functioning. All PET scans are performed on combined PET and CT scanners. The combined PET/CT scans provide images that pinpoint the anatomic location of abnormal metabolic activity within the body
Scintimammography (Dilon)
Scintimammography uses small amounts of radioactive materials called radiotracers, a special camera and a computer to help investigate an abnormality discovered on mammography. Its ability to detect cancer is not limited by dense breast tissue or breast implants, and it can reduce unnecessary procedures by helping determine whether an abnormality requires biopsy.
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.
Vascular Ultrasound
Vascular ultrasound uses sound waves to evaluate the body’s circulatory system and help identify blockages and detect blood clots.
