Images for patient exams are available on Film
or CD. Physicians also have the option to use
our HIPAA compliant software to download and view
exams using his/her existing computer system.
Reports are faxed or hand delivered to the referring
physician. Upon physician request our radiologists
will produce “Read & Call”/”Wet
Reads”, calling the referring physician
with results within 1 hour of the patient’s
and MRA services
Magnetic Resonance Imaging is one of technology’s
most advanced diagnostic tools which allows physicians
to see inside the body without surgery or the
use of radiation. MRI uses a powerful magnet,
low intensity radio waves and computer technology
to create detailed images of soft tissue, muscle,
nerves and bone. Intravenous contrast may be ordered
to enhance images and highlight areas of concern.
Computed Axial Tomography (CT or CAT Scan) is
a diagnostic test that combines the use of x-rays
with computer technology. A series of x-ray beams
from many different angles are used to create
cross-sectional images of the patient’s
body. These images are assembled in a computer.
A three-dimensional picture is produced that can
display bones, organs and tissue in great detail.
The images produced can help identify any abnormalities
or problems. Oral and /or intravenous contrast
may be ordered to enhance images.
Fluoroscopy is an x-ray technique that, in conjunction
with oral contrast, helps identify problems with
bowel, gallbladder, stomach, upper GI, chest and
joints. During the test our radiologist watches
with live x-ray as contrast moves through different
parts of the body. A series of still pictures
are taken during this process.
Arthrogram provides detailed views of the inside
of a joint. During the procedure a contrast material
(dye) is injected into the joint. The contrast
material is visible on the x-ray image and helps
our radiologist and the patient’s physician
recognize any specific abnormalities. Arthrography
can be used to examine soft tissue structures
such as cartilage or ligaments as well as any
larger joints in the body such as hip, knee, ankle,
shoulder, elbow and wrist. The arthrography may
be followed by MRI as needed and ordered by the
A Myelogram is a procedure in which a small amount
of iodine contrast is injected into the spinal
canal. After the injection, a licensed technologist
will take a series of x-rays. This allows our
radiologist to study the spinal discs and nerve
roots for abnormalities. A myelogram may be followed
by CT Scan as directed by the physician.
