This medical imaging technique allows physicians to study all of the arteries and veins of the body (other than those of the heart).
Computed tomography (CT) Scan
CT scans, also known as CAT scans, obtain multiple cross-sectional images of the body by using special X-rays and computer enhancement to create an image many times more sensitive than a simple X-ray.
Bone densitometry uses special X-ray equipment to quickly and accurately measure the density of bones. This measurement helps doctors identify people who have osteoporosis, predict someone's risk for fractures of the hip and spine and monitor changes in bone density over time.
Providence medical imaging services ensure the highest standard of patient care and excellence in performance, interpretation and delivery of cost-effective imaging services.
An echocardiogram is a noninvasive (the skin is not pierced) procedure used to assess the heart's function and structures.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a test that lets your doctor see detailed pictures of the inside of your body. MRI combines the use of strong magnets and radio waves to form an MRI image.
A positron emission tomography (PET) scan is a type of nuclear medicine imaging test. It is used to examine various body tissues to identify certain conditions by looking at blood flow, metabolism, and oxygen use. PET scans may also be used to see how well the treatment of certain diseases is working.
Ultrasound is a test that uses reflected sound waves to produce an image of organs and other structures in the body.
For women who aren’t having any breast cancer symptoms, we offer a screening mammogram, an X-ray test of the breasts (mammary glands) used to screen for breast problems, such as a lump, and whether a lump is fluid-filled (a cyst) or a solid mass.
