Spectrum Medical Imaging Center offers a full range of diagnostic radiology services, MRI, CT, Ultrasound, Bone Density, X-Ray, and Mammography.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is one of the most technologically advanced diagnostic tools available. MRI uses a powerful magnet to create detailed images of the soft tissues, muscles, nerves and bones in your body. MRI uses no radiation so is often a safer option for most patients.
CT Computed Tomography
CT, or Computed Tomography, is an advanced diagnostic test that uses X-rays, a tube-like scanner, and computer to produce detailed images of the body. These images can give your physician a 3-D unobstructed view of your body to result in a more accurate diagnosis.
Ultrasound imaging is a diagnostic procedure that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce high-quality images of soft tissues and motion within the body. Ultrasound involves no X-rays and has a wide array of uses in medicine.
A bone density test can provide a snapshot of your bone health. The test is used to identify osteoporosis, determine your risk for fractures (broken bones), and measure your response to osteoporosis treatment.
X-rays can be obtained quickly and are inexpensive. Therefore, x-rays are often used as the initial imaging modality. They are often the only imaging required for diagnosis for many diseases; however, an abnormality may require further study with a more advanced imaging.
3D Digital Mammography is the industry’s latest tool for breast cancer screening. It produces several images to create what is essentially a “three dimensional” mammogram. Radiologists are able to see the tissue one thin slice at a time, allowing for a more detailed analysis of the breast.
