A bone mineral density test is a reliable, non-invasive and painless test that measures the density, or thickness, of your bones. It measures the amount of mineral (calcium) in a specific area of bone. The more mineral you have in the bone measured, the greater your bone density or bone mass.
CT (computed tomography or CAT scan) is a non-invasive and painless imaging technology that uses x-ray equipment and computers to create detailed, cross-sectional images of an area of the body. CT scans are frequently used to evaluate abnormalities such as blocked blood vessels. CT also may be used to locate infections or tumors; it serves as a valuable tool for use in minimally invasive interventional radiology procedures.
Mammography is a safe, painless and non-invasive type of imaging that uses a low-dose x-ray system to examine breasts. A mammography exam, called a mammogram, is used to aid in the early detection and diagnosis of breast diseases in women.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a non-invasive, state-of-the-art procedure that uses a powerful magnetic field, radio waves and a computer to produce detailed, high resolution pictures of organs, soft tissues and bone. Because of its safety and clarity, the MRI is a valuable tool that can aid in the diagnosis of a wide range of conditions.
Ultrasound imaging also known as ultrasound scanning or sonography is a safe, painless and non-invasive medical test that involves taking pictures of the body using sound waves. Ultrasound can be used to look at soft tissue structures and blood vessels. Pulses of ultrasound are sent through the skin into your body which then echo (“bounce back”) from the various parts of the body, creating an image.
A virtual colonoscopy is a non-invasive, safe and more comfortable procedure for colon screening. The virtual colonoscopy scan takes hundreds of images of the abdomen and pelvis, allowing radiologists to take a virtual tour of the colon.
