A specialized medical imaging technique that uses low-dose x-rays to see breast tissue. 3D mammography captures layered images of the breast at different angles to create a clear 3D reconstruction of the breast. This technique allows physicians to see images of the breast in layers, improving visibility and detection of breast tumors. It also reduces the frequency of “false positives” and the need for additional testing.
Computerized Tomography (CT or CAT scan)
A highly advanced diagnostic scan using computer-enhanced x-rays. CT scans show images of areas surrounded by bone and can also help doctors see details within tissues, such as organs and blood vessels. CT scans are much clearer and detailed than ordinary x-rays and can often detect certain problems at an earlier stage.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
A highly advanced diagnostic technique which combines a powerful magnetic field, radio frequency waves and computers to produce high quality images of the body's internal tissues. These images help physicians diagnose specific medical conditions.
A type of medical imaging that uses small amounts of radioactive material (called tracers) to help diagnose and/or treat a variety of conditions or diseases. Nuclear medicine scans give doctors important information about how various parts of the body are working.
An imaging technique that uses x-rays to create "real-time" or moving images of the body. It helps doctors see how an organ or body system functions. Fluoroscopy is used in a variety of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. A radiologist (x-ray doctor) and radiologic technologist perform the procedures together.
Bone Densitometry (Dexa)
A scan similar to an x-ray that quickly and accurately measures the density of bone. It is used primarily to detect osteopenia or osteoporosis, conditions in which the bone's mineral and density are low and the risk of fractures is increased.
A diagnostic medical imaging technique using sound waves to visualize muscles, tendons, tissues and many internal organs. Imagery can show size, structure and/or abnormalities with real time images.
An imaging technique that uses invisible energy beams to produce images of internal tissues, bones and organs.
