Computed Tomography

CT scans, also known as CAT scans, produce multiple cross-sectional images of the body by using special X-rays and computer enhancements.

Diagnostic Radiology

Diagnostic radiology is a broad term that refers to the entire field of medical imaging and the multitude of related techniques available to study the body.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) provides extremely detailed images of body tissue, organs, and bones without using X-rays or radiation.

Nuclear Medicine

Nuclear medicine is a safe, painless, and effective imaging method that provides specific information about organ function and structure.


Ultrasound, or diagnostic medical sonography, is a safe and painless imaging process.

Bone Density

To check for osteoporosis, we use a special X-ray method called bone densitometry testing, also known as DXA (dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry). DXA is used to evaluate bone loss and to diagnose and monitor osteoporosis.


Since its inception 35 years ago, we use this technologically advanced, low radiation X-ray test to identify any abnormalities in your breast tissue.

Pediatric Imaging

In addition to using low-radiation (in some cases, zero radiation) technologies, we also strictly follow the guidelines set forth by Image Gently, an international healthcare alliance dedicated to promoting radiation safety in children’s imaging.
