  • Bone Densitometry – DEXA

    Bone densitometry (or DEXA) is an enhanced form of x-ray technology that measures bone mineral density and determines the strength of your bones. Your doctor might want to establish a baseline bone density to determine whether you need treatment with medication. DEXA is most often performed on the lower spine and hips.

  • MRI – Magnetic Resonance Imaging

    Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) uses an exceptionally strong magnet, radio frequency waves and a sophisticated computer to generate detailed grayscale images. The body or body part is placed within a magnet coil that detects shifting signals, which are encoded by the magnetic field gradients.

  • Nuclear Medicine

    Nuclear medicine uses small amounts of radioactive substances called tracers, which target and show the organ of interest, in order to diagnose disease and the severity and also treat disease. Nuclear medicine provides unique functional and physiological information that your doctor will use to diagnose problems.

  • Ultrasound

    Ultrasound imaging is a non-invasive, painless test that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce cross-sectional images, which is used extensively during pregnancy, and to assess many organs and superficial parts, as well as the heart and blood vessels.
