A MRI, also known as a Magnetic Resonance Imaging is a test that uses magnets, radio waves and computer technology to create precise pictures of your body, organs, and bones. Many patients confuse an MRI with a CT or CAT scan (Computed Axial Tomography). An MRI does not use radiation, and we here at Specialty Imaging are proud to offer our clients a more comfortable experience in our state of the art machine that is known for reducing the feeling of claustrophobia, while maintaining the superior image quality of a high field MRI.
A CT scan, also known as Computerized axial tomography, is a quick and easy way to have an X-ray taken. Our high-powered computer takes cross-sectional views of a patient’s body that can identify typical and nontypical structures that may or may not be cause for concern. Specialty Imaging’s 64 slice CT yields the highest quality images in a fraction of the time while using the lowest radiation dose possible.
Digital X-RayA Digital X-Ray, also known as radiography, is an easy, non-invasive, and painless procedure. Digital X-Rays are the oldest and most commonly used form of medical imaging. While a small portion of your body is exposed to low-dose radiation in order to provide our radiologist with the diagnostic information, you need not fear any long-term after-effects.
Diagnostic medical sonography or diagnostic ultrasound is a branch of medical imaging which uses a transducer, a high-frequency sound wave, to produce anatomy images of the body. These medical images are extremely valuable in diagnosing and treating various illnesses, diseases and conditions. Ultrasounds are quick, easy and painless, and do not include radiation.
