Services

Computed Tomography (CT) Scans

CT scans are fast and painless. We operate a 16-slice GE Optima CT scanner to project images of possible abnormalities in the body like blocked blood vessels, infections or tumors. The scanner is equipped with Emergency Scan Mode, which launches and completes emergency scans faster than most normal CT procedures. The scanner is also energy efficient, using 60 percent less energy than our previous scanner.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

MRI uses a powerful magnet, radio frequencies and computers to produce high-resolution images of the body's organs and structures. The images are created in the form of "slices," making it easier to see the structure layer by layer.

DEXA Scan (Bone Density)

This advanced test measures bone density for those who may be at risk for disorders like osteoporosis. It can also detect vertebral fractures at a very low dosage of radiation.

C-Arm

Our surgeons use this highly complex X-ray machine to create real-time images and project them on a monitor. This allows them to observe and identify blood vessels, bones, kidney stones and more.

Ultrasound

Best known for the use of evaluating the condition of a fetus, this painless, non-invasive technology allows us to look at parts of the body like kidneys, liver, heart and hips without the use of radiation.

General Radiography (X-Ray)

As the most basic form of medical imaging, we use this technique to examine the body’s interior structure.
