Procedures | At a Glance
Angiography is an X-ray exam of the arteries and veins to diagnose blockages and other blood vessel problems.
An arthrogram is an X-ray exam of a joint, using a contrast agent and fluoroscopy. It may involve a CT or MRI procedure.
Bone Density Scan
A bone density scan (DEXA) measures the density and mineral content in bone, most often in the hip or lower spine.
Computed tomography (CT) helps differentiate between healthy and diseased tissue, making it possible to accurately diagnose many diseases at an early stage.
X-ray is the most frequently used form of medical imaging — it is the fastest and easiest way for a physician to view and assess broken bones. It can also diagnose and monitor osteoporosis, heart disease and cancer.
Fluoroscopy uses a continuous low-dose X-ray beam, often combined with a contrast material (dye), to produce images of organs and bones in real time.
Mammography is a low-dose X-ray picture of the breast. It reveals masses and micro-calcifications that may indicate breast cancer.
MRI is an advanced medical imaging procedure that uses a powerful magnetic field, radio waves and a computer to create cross-sectional images.
Nuclear medicine uses very small amounts of radioactive materials (also called radiopharmaceuticals) to diagnose and treat disease.
PET/CT helps medical professionals in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer. It is also used to study cognitive disorders, including Alzheimer’s disease.
