Diagnostic imaging enables us to create images of your body and its organs and other internal structures using external radiation and other advanced technology. We use imaging to help diagnose a wide range of possible conditions.
- Angiogram - Also known as an arteriogram; an X-ray
image of the blood vessels used to review various vascular conditions and potential problems.
- Arthrogram - An X-ray of a joint; uses
fluoroscopy and a liquid contrast medium to look for problems in your joints.
- Cardiac imaging - Involves specialized procedures to create images of your heart. These procedures include cardiac calcium scoring, cardiac CT angiography and carotid IMT.
- 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.
- Mammogram - Produces images on a high-resolution computer monitor. To schedule a mammogram, please call 855-273-7226 or 704-384-7226.
- 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.
- Nuclear medicine - A small amount of radioactive material, either ingested or injected into your body, is used to examine your organs and diagnose a variety of diseases and disorders.
- Ultrasound and Doppler ultrasound - A a safe and
effective diagnostic tool using reflected sound waves to examine many different parts of your body. Doppler technology measures the speed and direction of blood flow
through your blood vessels, to look for clots or blockage or narrowing that may be caused by plaque, and tumors or other malformations of the blood vessel.
- X-rays - Use small doses of radiation to produce pictures
that help diagnose tumors or bone injuries.
