uses low-dose X-rays to produce detailed images of internal anatomy. Multiple X-ray images are captured from various angles and, using advanced computer software, these images can be arranged to create complete, cross-sectional views of organs, bones, soft tissue and blood vessels.
uses powerful magnets, radio signals and advanced computer software to image soft tissue, like cartilage and ligaments, and organs, like eyes, the brain and the heart. While MRI exams take longer than X-ray or CT exams, they do not use radiation and can be repeated safely multiple times.
, or PET/CT, uses CT imaging capabilities and a low-level, injectable radioactive material to provide visual information about cellular health. PET/CT is useful in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer, as well as to evaluate patients with cardiac or neurological problems, such as seizures or dementia.
uses sound waves to detect structures and movement within the body. A device called a transducer is used to translate information detected via sound waves into images of internal organs and blood vessels on a computer monitor. Ultrasound is commonly used to monitor pregnancy, as well as to assess the organs and blood vessels in the abdomen.
is the oldest and most commonly used diagnostic imaging procedure. Physicians can quickly and easily use X-ray to view and assess broken bones, although X-ray is useful in diagnosing and monitoring a wide range of health conditions, including osteoporosis, heart disease and various cancers.
