Magnetic Resonance Imaging is one of technology’s most advanced diagnostic tools which allows physicians to see inside the body without surgery or the use of radiation. MRI uses a powerful magnet, low intensity radio waves and computer technology to create detailed images of soft tissue, muscle, nerves and bone. Intravenous contrast may be ordered to enhance images and highlight areas of concern.

CT:

Computed Axial Tomography (CT or CAT Scan) is a diagnostic test that combines the use of x-rays with computer technology. A series of x-ray beams from many different angles are used to create cross-sectional images of the patient’s body. These images are assembled in a computer. A three-dimensional picture is produced that can display bones, organs and tissue in great detail. The images produced can help identify any abnormalities or problems. Oral and /or intravenous contrast may be ordered to enhance images.

Specialty X-Ray Services:
Fluoroscopy is an x-ray technique that, in conjunction with oral contrast, helps identify problems with bowel, gallbladder, stomach, upper GI, chest and joints. During the test our radiologist watches with live x-ray as contrast moves through different parts of the body. A series of still pictures are taken during this process.

An Arthrogram provides detailed views of the inside of a joint. During the procedure a contrast material (dye) is injected into the joint. The contrast material is visible on the x-ray image and helps our radiologist and the patient’s physician recognize any specific abnormalities. Arthrography can be used to examine soft tissue structures such as cartilage or ligaments as well as any larger joints in the body such as hip, knee, ankle, shoulder, elbow and wrist. The arthrography may be followed by MRI as needed and ordered by the physician.

A Myelogram is a procedure in which a small amount of iodine contrast is injected into the spinal canal. After the injection, a licensed technologist will take a series of x-rays. This allows our radiologist to study the spinal discs and nerve roots for abnormalities. A myelogram may be followed by CT Scan as directed by the physician.
