Radiology is the branch of medicine that uses electromagnetic radiation to create images of the body, its organs, and structures for the purpose of diagnosis and treatment. The Imaging department works with physicians and other departments to provide the highest quality of care, including:
- General Radiology (x-ray)
- Computed Tomography
- Bone Mineral Density
An ultrasound procedure is a non-invasive diagnostic procedure used to assess soft tissue structures such as muscles, blood vessels, and organs. Different ultrasound techniques exist for different conditions. Some of the more common types of ultrasound examinations include:
- Echocardiography – adult
- Doppler ultrasound – cardiac flow, venous or arterial
- Breast Imaging – Ultrasound guided aspiration, biopsy, or needle localization
- Male Pelvic Imaging
- Female Pelvic Imaging – OB/GYN
Nuclear medicine is a specialized area of radiology that uses very small amounts of radioactive materials to examine organ function and structure. Nuclear medicine imaging is a combination of many different disciplines, including chemistry, physics, mathematics, computer technology, and medicine. Common procedures include: Stress Testing, Cardiolite
What is cardiac scoring?
Cardiac scoring is a revolutionary, pain-free, noninvasive and inexpensive procedure requiring less than 10 minutes. Using CT imaging with sub-second scanning capability, the equipment takes 70-90 images of your coronary arteries without any injections, needles or removal of your clothing. The amount of calcium or plaque detected in your coronary arteries is used to establish in your cardiac score. Cardiac scoring is a revolutionary, pain-free, noninvasive.
