Imaging Services

3D/4D Ultrasound

Using the latest in ultrasound technology, we are able to get clear pictures of tissue, organs, and of course, little bundles of joy.

CAT Scans

CAT scans, or CT scans, is a specialized X-ray tool that helps physicians better visualize specific parts of the body.

Digital Mammography

Digital mammographs provide clearer pictures with less radiation exposure than traditional mammograms.

Digital X-Ray

Advances in digital radiology allow us to get crystal clear images with the click of the button—and no need to wait for them to develop.

Echocardiograms

These highly-targeted ultrasounds help cardiologists see the anatomy of the heart and how well it is functioning.

Bone Density

Bone density scanning is a painless and non-invasive way to quantify bone loss in the elderly and in those with special conditions.

MRI

When doctors need more detail than an X-ray can provide, an MRI can pinpoint problems with tissues, bones, and organs with pinpoint accuracy.

How will my doctor choose between an X-ray, CAT scan, or MRI?

The nature of your condition will be a big factor in determining what diagnostic imaging test your doctor chooses. Simple fractures may only require an X-ray, while more complicated musculoskeletal injuries may require an MRI. If you have implanted metallic hardware such as a pacemaker, you will not be able to enter an MRI machine, so a CAT scan is the next best alternative for cross-sectional images.

What age should I start getting regular mammograms?

The American Cancer Society recommends that women aged 45 to 54 get mammograms every year. After 55, you can choose to have mammograms every two years. However, if you have a personal or family history of breast cancer, you and your doctor may decide on a different mammogram schedule.

What are the benefits of a 3D/4D ultrasound?

3D and 4D ultrasounds provide more accurate and more detailed images than traditional 2D ultrasounds. For prenatal screening, 3D and 4D ultrasounds can more readily detect birth defects and other abnormalities that might otherwise have been missed. They can also help you see what your little one looks like much better than 2D ultrasounds.
