DIAGNOSTIC IMAGING SERVICES
- Advanced Imaging Capabilities – 64-slice CT Scanner: Computer Tomography (CT) scans create images of internal organs, tissues and bones. In just seconds, this advanced technology can make a complete scan of your entire body—or produce detailed views of a targeted area, such as the brain or heart. Physicians can view the individual images (called “slices”) for specific detail. Or they can assemble the images to create a three dimensional view of an organ. The result is often a faster, more precise diagnosis.
- Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) technology relies on a combination of radio waves, computer technology and a strong magnetic field to produce high-definition, three-dimensional images of internal organs and structures. Physicians order MRIs to diagnose a wide range of conditions, from cancer, heart and vascular disease and strokes to joint and muscle disorders.
