Body Imaging procedures include CT scans, MRI and Ultrasounds.
Our radiologists use noninvasive diagnostic imaging to look for abnormalities inside the body and perform limited invasive procedures. This includes everything in the chest, abdomen, and pelvis. Our body imaging radiologists use diagnostic imaging to noninvasively look for abnormalities inside the body. These imaging techniques also help body imaging radiologists perform limited invasive procedures. This has all but eliminated the need for exploratory surgeries often performed in the past.
Breast imaging radiology procedures include mammography, breast ultrasounds and breast MRI. Tomosynthesis (3D Imaging) is done free of charge at the Advanced Imaging Centers.
X-ray is the primary and most common examination within the specialty of radiology. X-rays provide valuable information to radiologists about your health and play an important role in diagnostics. X-rays of the chest, abdomen, spine, sinuses and extremities are all very common X-ray tests performed. X-rays are a form of electromagnetic radiation producing wavelengths that are shorter than visible light and therefore invisible.
Neuroradiology focuses on the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) and peripheral nervous system (connecting the central nervous system to limbs and organs), the spine, head, and neck. Neuroradiologists provide primary imaging interpretations from MRI and CT scans of the head, brain and spine.
Spine radiology focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the spine including cervical (neck), thoracic (between the neck and abdomen), and lumbar (lower spine). Here at Advanced Imaging a spine radiologist will provide imaging interpretation of MRI, CT scans, Ultrasound, and X-Rays. A spine radiologist may help to treat pain referable to the spine with an injection. After interpreting an examination or performing an injection our radiologists communicate rapidly and effectively with your doctor.
Musculoskeletal radiology (MSK) focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, soft tissues, and spine. We provide imaging interpretations of MRI and CT scans, ultrasound and x-rays. Our musculoskeletal Imaging Division performs image guided injections, aspirations, and biopsies by our dedicated musculoskeletal radiologists and Musculoskeletal Radiology Fellow.
We use low dosage imaging, keeping the radiation dose as low as possible while delivering high quality images for all patients and most especially children. Here at Advanced Imaging we personalize the care given to every patient.
As members of Image Gently and Image Wisely we pledge to minimize radiation for all patients.
Nuclear Medicine, sometimes called molecular imaging, uses tiny amounts of radioactive tracer material, or radiopharmaceutical, to examine bodily function, both normal and abnormal. A special camera is used to image the body after the radiotracer is given. The material is usually injected into a vein, but may also be inhaled or ingested, depending on what is being studied. Nuclear medicine studies evaluate how the body functions, and can be combined with CT or MRI to see both function and structure. Some things that can be evaluated using nuclear medicine include kidney function, heart disease, lung function, gallbladder function, bone fractures, cancer, internal bleeding or infection.
Interventional radiology uses minimally invasive techniques to provide state of the art diagnoses and therapies. By using imaging such at Fluoroscopy, US, CT, or MRI and minimally invasive techniques the Radiologist is able to perform both diagnostic and therapeutic procedures with precision. These techniques often require less down time than traditional surgery, and can be equally effective.
