Bone Density Exams
Also known as a DXA (dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry) this exam is a method of measuring bone mineral density, a process that’s also known as bone densitometry. DXA is used to evaluate bone loss and to diagnose and monitor osteoporosis.

Computed Tomography
Also known as CT scans, or CAT (Computed Axial Tomography) scans, they produce multiple cross-sectional images of the body by using special X-rays and computer enhancements. This technology creates an image many times more sensitive and detailed than a simple X-ray can produce. The detailed assessment gives your doctor information to help diagnose your condition.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging
Also known as MRIs, they provide extremely detailed images of body tissue, organs, and bones without using X-rays or radiation. Instead, it uses two natural, safe forces: magnetic fields and radio waves.

Nuclear Medicine
This is a safe, painless, and effective imaging method that provides specific information about organ function and structure. Nuclear medicine pharmaceuticals can also be used in the treatment or therapy of various cancers and other diseases.

Ultrasound
Also known as diagnostic medical sonography, this is a safe and painless imaging process. It uses high-frequency sound waves, without radiation, to generate images of the internal structures of the body.
