Radiological Services include:

  • 3D mammography or breast tomosynthesis uses a moving x-ray source and a digital detector to create a three-dimensional image of the breast. Several low-dose images from different angles around the breast are used to create a 3D picture. 3D is currently considered standard of care for breast imaging. A number of studies have shown that 3D mammograms decrease the false negative rate and increase the rate of cancer detection.
  • Conventional Radiography (X-Rays)  is the use of x-rays to visualize the internal structures of a patient. X – rays of the skeletal system along with the chest or abdominal cavities may be obtained to help make a diagnosis.
  • Digital Fluoroscopy uses radiation to produce real time images. It is the study of moving body structures. It is often used to image the gastrointestinal tract. These tests require the administration of barium to better visualize the anatomy. These exams are performed under the direct supervision of the radiologist.
  • Computed Tomography (CT) uses a combination of computers and X-ray images taken from different angles around your body to create cross-sectional (slices) images of the bones, blood vessels and soft tissues inside your body. A CT scan is often a fast way diagnose disease or injury, it can also be used to organize medical, surgical or radiation treatment. Some exams may require the use of oral or IV contrast as directed by your physician.

This offers a fast, non-invasive way to measure the bone density of the spine, hips and occasionally the forearm. This is a screening tool that will aid your physician in determining your fracture risk and the appropriate treatment.
