We offer a wide range of diagnostic tests. Delivering expert and compassionate care is our goal.
We use many advanced technologies for the abdomen and pelvis. We focus on imaging tests for the liver, biliary system, colon, pancreas, kidneys, bladder, female pelvis, and prostate. Tests include:
- Computed tomography (CT)
- Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
- Ultrasonography (US)
We also perform image-guided drainages and biopsies. In addition, we do non-invasive CT and MR vascular exam.
Our breast imagers interpret mammograms, breast ultrasound, breast MRI and breast-specific gamma imaging. We perform stereotactic, ultrasound-, and MRI-guided core biopsies, ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration, needle localizations, and axillary sentinel node evaluation. We work closely with our internists and gynecologists, breast surgeons, pathologists, and oncologists. We strive to give you the best possible care.
Thoracic imaging diagnoses and treats diseases of the lungs and surrounding tissues. This includes lung cancer; airway diseases such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD); interstitial lung disease; infection; and vascular diseases of the aorta and pulmonary arteries. We use tests such as high-resolution chest CT, CT angiography of the aorta and pulmonary arteries, and X-rays.
Cardiac imaging involves both CT and MRI. We perform coronary artery calcium scoring and coronary CT angiography. The coronary CT angiography helps us see if you have coronary artery atherosclerosis. We use cardiac MRI to determine cardiac viability before revascularization, assess for infiltrative myocardial disease, and evaluate congenital cardiac anatomy. MRI also lets us take a good look at your aorta.
Emergency radiology focuses on acutely ill or traumatized patient in the Emergency Department. We use several imaging modalities, including multi-detector CT, MRI, ultrasound and X-rays. Our radiologists cover the Emergency Department 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Our musculoskeletal experts focus on imaging and treating the bones, joints, and soft tissue. We work closely with colleagues in other areas, such as orthopedics, rheumatology, and rehabilitation medicine. Imaging tests for bones and joints range from ultrasound to MR arthrography. We also perform procedures such as therapeutic injections. Together with Interventional Radiology, we perform bone biopsies.
We perform MRI and CT scans of the brain, head, neck, and spine. We help diagnose degenerative, traumatic, neoplastic, vascular, and congenital diseases.
Nuclear Medicine Imaging
Nuclear medicine (NM), or scintigraphy, uses small amounts of radioactive materials (called radiotracers or tracers) to diagnose and treat disease. NM provides information about how your organs, tissues, or bone are functioning. The tests are safe and painless. We introduce a small amount of radioactive material by injection, swallowing, or inhalation. Each tracer is designed to migrate to specific organs or tissues. Tracers produce emissions that we can capture with a gamma camera. We use nuclear medicine for conditions such as bone infections, cardiovascular disease, kidney disease, cancer, thyroid disorders, neurologic diseases, and gastrointestinal disease. We also perform positron emissions tomography (PET) CT scans.
Ultrasound imaging or sonography uses high frequency sound waves to produce pictures of your internal organs and soft tissue. This lets us look at your heart, liver, gallbladder, spleen, pancreas, kidneys and bladder. We also use ultrasound to examine a fetus in the uterus, the flow of blood through veins and arteries, and gallstones and prostate abnormalities. Special ultrasound tests let us see how tendons work while your joints are in motion. Since ultrasound uses sound waves, rather than x-rays, you are not exposed to radiation. For this reason, we often use ultrasound with children.
We treat disease with radiology through interventional radiology and nuclear medicine.
We treat conditions such as liver disease, uterine fibroid embolization, deep vein thrombosis (DVT), varicose veins, end state renal disease/hemodialysis care, kidney cancer, peripheral arterial disease, and vascular anomalies and malformations.
Nuclear Medicine (NM)
We use radioactive iodine to treat hyperthyroidism and thyroid cancer.
