Services & Treatments Provided

Computed Tomography (CT) is a noninvasive, painless medical test that uses a rotating X-ray tube and detectors to generate cross sectional images or ‘slices’ of the patient. The data from the scan can be displayed to show bones, soft tissues or organs, or blood vessels. Radiologists can more easily diagnose problems such as cancers, cardiovascular disease, infectious disease, trauma and musculoskeletal disorders. The most common exams include brain, spine, chest, abdomen and pelvis studies.

 

General Radiology A Radiologist is a physician who specializes in obtaining and interpreting medical images.  Images are obtained using x-rays, MRIs, radiocative substances (nuclear medicine) or ultrasound.

 

Interventional Radiology uses image guidance from ultrasound, CT or fluoroscopy to perform minimally invasive diagnostic exams and therapeutic procedures. Interventional Radiologists perform a wide variety of procedures through very narrow catheters, often sparing the patient an open surgical procedure. The most common interventional procedure is diagnostic angiography, where contrast is injected into a blood vessel to show any significant narrowing. Other interventional procedures include, but are not limited to:

  • Angioplasty
  • Vascular stent placement
  • Vertebroplasty
  • Catheter directed infusions
  • Placement of central venous lines
  • Maintenance of dialysis access
  • Biliary and urinary tract procedures
  • Varicose and spider vein treatments
 

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a noninvasive, usually painless medical test that uses a magnetic field and weak radio wave pulses to generate images of the body. No X-rays are used. These images outline brain tissue, soft tissues of the abdomen and pelvis, the spine and joints very clearly. In some patients, an MRI contrast agent called gadolinium is injected intravenously. This contrast contains no iodine and is well-tolerated by patients with allergies to iodine (IVP dye, shellfish).

 

Mammograms and Mammography uses low energy X-rays and very sensitive film to generate images of the breast for early detection of breast cancer. Many small cancers exhibit tiny calcifications or are seen as small nodules. Subtle changes in breast tissue on mammography, called architectural distortion, may also indicate cancer. Radiologists search mammograms carefully for these changes and can be helped by a computer aided detector, which independently scans the mammogram and can target these findings as well.

 

Musculoskeletal Radiology specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of muscle and joint problems using medical imaging such as X-rays, MRIs and CT scans, to collect information about a patient’s musculoskeletal system.

 

Neurological Radiology is devoted to the diagnostic imaging and diagnosis of the brain and nerves, head, neck and spine. This includes x-rays, CT, ultrasound and MRI.

 

Pain Management specialists are trained to treat chronic pain that is often difficult to manage. Pain may result from numerous sources including injury, clinical conditions such as arthritis, or cancer. Our team will first identify the source of the pain and then establish an appropriate pain control program.

 

Ultrasound Screening for Vascular Disease uses high frequency sound waves and their echoes to generate images of the body. No x-rays are used for these exams, making them safe for children and pregnant women. Most exams take 30 minutes or less. Ultrasounds are not only associated with prenatal exams, but in other applications that evaluate internal tissues and organs. Because ultrasound images are captured in real-time, they can show movement of internal tissues and organs, enabling our Radiologists to see blood flow and heart valve functions. It is a safe and painless imaging study.

 

Varicose and Spider Vein Treatment, also called Endovenous ablation, is a minimally invasive, image-guided procedure that uses heat generated by a laser to seal off enlarged veins in the legs. Normally, blood circulates from the heart to the legs and back again using a system of one-way valves to prevent the blood from flowing backward into the legs. When leg veins become less elastic and valves malfunction, some blood may remain in the leg where it pools and causes the vessels to become enlarged or varicose. Endovenous ablation reroutes the blood flow to nearby, health veins.

 

X-Ray and Fluoroscopy is a painless medical test that helps physicians diagnose and treat medical conditions. Radiography involves exposing a part of the body to a small dose of ionizing radiation to produce pictures of the inside of the body. X-rays are the oldest and most frequently used form of medical imaging. Routine x-rays include images of the chest, abdomen, pelvis and bone radiography. Fluoroscopy is a study of moving body structures, such as digestive functions, in a live, movie-like sequence. It is a safe and generally non-invasive procedure.
