X-Ray Computed Tomography (CT), sometimes referred to as Computerized Axial Tomography (CAT), is a diagnostic tool which allows us to visualize internal structures of the body in detail.
Using radio waves and magnetic fields to make images, MRI or Magnetic Resonance Imaging is used as a diagnostic tool to view the internal structures of the body. It is important to declare any known metal, medical implants or piercings to ensure your safety. Also, women who are pregnant or may be pregnant should speak to our staff.
The ultrasound image is produced by the reflection of the waves off of the body structures. It is a combination of the time it takes for the sound signal to travel through the body as well as the strength of the signal as it is transmitted that creates the ultrasound image. Ultrasound imaging (sonography) uses high-frequency sound waves to view inside the body.
X-ray is the name of the procedure as well as the name of the beams that are sent through the body. It is used to assess the presence or absence of disease, foreign objects, and structural damage or abnormality.
