About Our Medical Imaging Services
We provide the highest quality of Radiology services using the most state-of-the-art equipment to create images of the body, its organs, and structures. These images show how effectively the body and its internal organs and structures are functioning which is crucial for the purposes of diagnosis and treatment.
A computed tomography CT (CAT) scan allows doctors to see inside your body using a combination of X-rays and a computer to create pictures of your organs, bones, and other tissues. Showing more detail than a regular X-ray. This provides a series of images from many different angles. A computer uses this information to create a cross-sectional picture.
A bone density test is used to measure bone mineral content and density. It may be done using X-rays, dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA or DXA). The testing procedure typically measures the bone density of the bones of the spine, lower arm, and hip. This measurement tells the healthcare provider whether there is decreased bone mass. This is a condition in which bones are more brittle and prone to break or fracture easily.
A lumbar puncture (also called a spinal tap) is a minimally invasive, image-guided diagnostic test that involves the removal of a small amount of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) —the fluid that surrounds the brain and spinal cord—or an injection of medication or other substance into lumbar (or lower) region of the spinal canal.
MRI uses a strong magnetic field and radio waves to create detailed images of the organs and tissues within the body. MRI scanning is a non-invasive and painless procedure. The scanner itself typically resembles a large tube with a table in the middle, allowing the patient to slide in.
Nuclear medicine is a medical specialty that uses tracers to assess bodily functions and to diagnose and treat disease. Specially designed cameras allow doctors to track the path of these radioactive tracers. Single Photon Emission Computer Tomography or SPECT and Positron Emission Tomography or PET scans are the two most common imaging modalities in nuclear medicine.
Positron-emission tomography is a nuclear medicine functional imaging technique that is used to observe the metabolic processes in the body as an aid to diagnosis and disease. It uses tracers to show activity within the body on a cellular level. PET/CT scanners offer the latest imaging technology and advanced functionality to help clinicians find and characterize disease, as well as follow patient progress during and after treatment to endure therapeutic efficacy.
Ultrasound is a type of imaging that uses high-frequency sound waves to look at different organs inside the body. It is used to view the liver, kidneys, uterus, ovaries and numerous other organs and blood vessels. Ultrasound is also the desired modality to image a fetus during pregnancy. Unlike x-rays or CT, ultrasound does not expose you to radiation.
X-rays are a form of electromagnetic radiation, similar to visible light. Unlike light, however, x-rays have higher energy and can pass through most objects, including the body. X-rays can’t be seen, felt or heard. Instead, they effortlessly pass through skin, bone and metal to produce images that the human eye would never be able to see.
This is a procedure during which a sample of breast tissue is taken using a specialized fine needle with mammogram or sonogram guided technology. The tissue sample is sent to the lab to determine the nature of the cells in question.
It is used to examine your breasts when other imaging tests are inadequate or inconclusive, to screen for breast cancer in women with a high risk of developing the disease, and to monitor the progression of breast cancer as well as the efficiency of its treatment.
Fallopian tube recanalization (FTR) is a nonsurgical procedure to clear blockages in the fallopian tubes. A common cause of female infertility is a blockage of the fallopian tubes, usually as the result of debris that has built up. Occasionally, scarring from surgery or serious infection can lead to a blockage as well.
Hysterosalpingography (HSG) evaluates the shape of the uterus and checks whether the fallopian tubes are open. It’s also used to investigate miscarriages due to problems in the uterus.
The traditional digital mammogram takes two-dimensional pictures of the breast and is still one of the most advanced tools available for detecting breast abnormalities. A screening mammogram is used to detect breast tumors in women who have no symptoms of breast cancer.
