Bone Density Testing
This procedure is performed to evaluate patients risk for osteoporosis. The equipment uses x-ray to image and gives the radiologist a graph and score on a patient, which assist the PCP in the diagnosis of Osteoporosis.
Computerized Axial Tomography (CT Scanning)
Unlike other traditional x-ray technology, Computerized Axial Tomography (commonly known as CT Scanning) is particularly useful because it can provide images of soft tissue such as organs and fat. It can be used to detect size and location of tumors, blood vessel abnormalities, and blood clots.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is an exam used to detect brain tumors, strokes, and certain chronic disorders of the nervous system such as multiple sclerosis. It is also used to document brain abnormalities in patients with dementia, and it can detect tissue abnormality in patients with disease of the eyes or the inner ear. It is also used in the diagnosis and treatment of tumors, knee and shoulder injuries, musculoskeletal malformations, and blood vessel disorders.
