Diagnostic x-rays - Diagnostic x-rays are routine or emergency examinations of the head, trunk, and extemities for diagnosis of illness and/or injuries of routine and/or accident victims.
Mammography – Mammography is an x-ray exam of the breast used to detect and evaluate breast changes in women who have no breast complaints or symptoms or in women who experience symptoms such as a lump, pain, or nipple discharge. X-rays were first used to examine the breasts more than 90 years ago, but modern mammography has only existed since the late 1960’s. If you have not had your mammogram, call today and schedule yours. Remember, early detection is so very important and could save your life!
CT Scan – Sometimes called CAT scanning is a noninvasive medical test that helps physicians diagnose and treat medical conditions such as cancers, cardiovascular disease, infectious disease, trauma and musculoskeletal disorders. CT scanning combines special X-ray equipment with sophisticated computers to produce multiple images of the inside of the body. CT scans are painless and accurate.
MRI – Magnetic Resonance Imaging – one of the most accurate methods of diagnostic imaging. It enables physicians to view the human body and obtain precise diagnostic information without the use of X-rays or invasive procedures. Same day – Next day service is offered after completion of receiving authorization from the patient’s insurance carrier.
Ultrasound – Ultrasound produces sound waves that are beamed into the body, causing return echoes that are recorded to help healthcare professionals visualize structures beneath the skin. The ability to measure different echoes reflected from a variety of tissues allows a shadow picture to be constructed. The technology is especially accurate at depicting the interface between solid and fluid-filled spaces and uses the same principles that allow people on boats to see the bottom of the ocean with SONAR.
