Bone densitometry

Bone densitometry, also known as dual-energy X-ray absorption (DEXA), is a painless test to help your doctor determine how healthy your bones are.

CT scan

A computerized tomography (CT) scan creates cross-sectional images (“slices”) that reveal your bones and organs with a high degree of precision.

Fluoroscopy uses real-time X-rays to evaluate bodily functions, including the upper and lower tracts of your gastrointestinal system.

Intravenous pyelography

Intravenous pyelography (IVP), also called intravenous urography, uses X-rays to produce pictures of the kidneys, bladder, ureters and urethra.

MRI

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) uses a magnetic field and pulses of radio wave energy to create detailed images of the organs and structures inside of the body.

Myelogram

A myelogram uses X-rays and a special dye injected into your back to look at your spinal canal and surrounding nerves. Tell your doctor if you are or may be pregnant, and discuss possible allergies to the dye. After the procedure, you should report any side effects to your radiologist immediately.
