"I only came for an X-Ray and I was in and out in 30 minutes! The staff was well organized and fast. The facilities were new and upgraded."
"Felt Like I was at a SPA."
"Technologist was very wonderful and caring."
"I arrived about 30 minutes early to my appointment and they were still able to get me in right away. The technician was really sweet and made the process as quick and easy as possible."
- Brooke S..
"Excellent treatment by technologist. Took the time to explain the procedure!"
CT imaging combines special x-ray equipment with sophisticated computers to produce multiple images or pictures of the inside of the body. These cross-sectional images of the area being studied can then be examined on a computer monitor or printed.
MR imaging uses a powerful magnetic field, radio frequency pulses and a computer to produce detailed pictures of organs, soft tissues, bone and virtually all other internal body structures. MRI does not use ionizing radiation (x-rays).
Ultrasound is a simple, safe, painless diagnostic procedure that bounces high-frequency sound waves off parts of the body and captures the returning "echoes" as images. There is no injection or radiation exposure associated with ultrasound.
Imaging guidance such as fluoroscopy or computed tomography (CAT scan) may be used to help the doctor place the needle in exactly the right location so the patient can receive the maximum benefit from the injection.
X-rays are a form of electromagnetic radiation, just like visible light. These particles pass through the body. A computer or special film is used to record the images that are created.
Nuclear medicine uses very small amounts of radioactive materials (radiopharmaceuticals) to diagnose and treat disease. It uses computer technology to provide doctors with information about both structure and function.

Recently, the American Cancer Society released a recommendation in regard to the use of MRI for women at high risk to develop breast cancer. In this podcast, the OncologyPodcasting news team meets with Dr. Judy Destouet, chief of breast mammography for Advanced Radiology, to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of using breast MRI to diagnose breast cancer.
As scientists develop a brain scan which could diagnose autism in 15 minutes, Chris Goodchild, who has Asperger's syndrome, tells Channel 4 News the importance of being quickly diagnosed.
The research, by scientists at the Institute of Psychiatry, King's College London and funded by the Medical Research Council, could lead to a simple, biological test for autism, and a clear diagnostic process, for the first time ever.
