Diagnostic Radiology

CT Scan

Computerized Tomography

A CT scan is an x-ray procedure that is enhanced by a computer and gives out a three-dimensional view (referred to as a “slice”) of a particular part of the body. It is a highly sensitive method to accurately view the internal anatomy and detect extremely small lesions.

PET-CT

Positron Emission Tomography

PET is an imaging technology that studies the body’s biological functions by measuring energy emitted by a radioactive substance injected prior to the procedure. PET is unique because it produces images of the body’s basic biochemistry or function.

MRI

Magnetic Resonance Imaging

Using state-of-the-art technology, MRI creates anatomical images without the use of radiation showing many different body angles and planes. This enables our physicians to quickly and precisely diagnose a wide variety of conditions.

Digital X-Ray

X-ray is a type of invisible light with high energy that can partially travel through the patient’s body. Some parts of the body block X-ray more than others. The bone blocks most amount of the rays (if there is metal or contrast material in the body, it will block even more) and air blocks the least.

Fluoroscopy

The fluoroscopy also uses X-ray to generate images. However, instead of getting a “picture” with X-ray, fluoroscopy is akin to getting a video with X-ray. Just as in regular video, motions and timed interactions between different entities can be visualized and analyzed.

DEXA

Bone Density

Bone density scanning, also known as bone densitometry or dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA), is a noninvasive diagnostic procedure used to determine the extent of bone loss by measuring bone mineral density.

Ultrasound

An ultrasound, also known as a sonogram, is a fast, painless imaging technique that produces images of the internal organs through the use of high-frequency sound waves. MRC provides a wide range of Ultrasound procedures.

Isotope

Isotope scan is a nuclear medicine test that uses a small amount of radioactive substance to produce pictures that highlight areas of increased bone activity, to show the extent and activity of the disease.

Breast Imaging

Mammography

Breast imaging involves a series of minimally invasive procedures that can be used to detect, diagnose and treat abnormalities in the breast tissue.  Women are encouraged to undergo breast imaging exams on a regular basis to help screen for any changes or abnormal lumps within the breast.

Other Services

MRC offers non-radiology services as well such as EEG and EMG. The actual tests — electroencephalogram (EEG) and electromyogram (EMG) — help physicians understand the nervous system.
