Diagnostic and Interventional Imaging

Radiology has become an important part of medicine. It is used to diagnose everything from simple fractures to complex abnormalities of the body’s systems, like cancer. Interventional imaging takes the process one step further, by using technology to help deliver specific treatments to locations within to body. Imaging services include:

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

This noninvasive medical imaging technique uses a powerful magnetic field to create a detailed three-dimensional view of the inside of the body. The images it produces are similar to those generated by a CT scan. However, MRI images provide a much clearer view of soft tissues. This makes MRI a valuable diagnostic tool for the visualization of cancer, infection, internal bleeding and soft tissue trauma.

Computed Tomography (CT) Scan

CT scans, sometimes called CAT scans, are specialized x-rays used to diagnose and treat certain medical conditions. CT scans are most commonly used to study the chest, brain, abdomen and pelvis. They are helpful in diagnosing cancers, vascular diseases and bone injuries.

Nuclear Stress Testing

This diagnostic procedure creates images of blood flow through the heart while the heart is at rest and while the heart is beating quickly from physical exertion. It can reveal the structural and functional health of the heart, and can help in the diagnosis of coronary artery disease or other heart conditions.

Positron Emission Tomography (PET) Scan

A PET scan is a unique type of imaging method that uses controlled radiation to reveal the body's functions. PET scans can be used to measure blood flow, oxygen use and metabolism. PET scans can help physicians diagnose cancers, vascular diseases, and disorders of the brain and nervous system.

Lung Cancer - Definition and Causes

This is an abnormal growth of lung tissue cells. It can affect one or both of your lungs. In the United States, lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in men and women.
