CT Scan

Getting your CT or CAT scan is painless and exposes you to very little radiation. Your doctor may use these scans to pinpoint issues in your bones, organs, blood vessels and muscles, or to find tumors.

 

Depending on the area of your body to be scanned, you'll need to follow slightly different instructions to prepare yourself:

 

Abdomen only

Stop eating four hours before your scan (clear liquids allowed for the first three hours)

Drink one bottle of liquid contrast one hour before your scan (refrigerate and shake well before drinking)

You'll be given a second bottle to drink at the office 30 minutes before your scan.

 

Pelvis only

Stop eating four hours before your scan (clear liquids allowed for the first three hours)

Drink one bottle of liquid contrast four hours before your scan (refrigerate and shake well before drinking)

Drink the second bottle of contrast one hour before your scan.

 

Abdomen and pelvis

Stop eating four hours before your scan (clear liquids allowed for the first three hours)

Drink two bottles of liquid contrast four hours before your scan (refrigerate and shake well before drinking

You will be given a third bottle to drink at our office 30 minutes before your scan.

 

Chest/thorax, brain or neck

Stop eating four hours before your scan (clear liquids allowed for the first three hours)

MRI

Getting your MRI is painless and doesn't expose you to any radiation. Your doctor may use these images to get detailed images of your bones, brain, spine, vessels and joints. Your MRI can range from just a few minutes to over an hour. We’ll let you know what to expect. In most cases, you won't need to do anything special to prepare.

Nuclear Medicine

If your doctor needs digitized images and real-time visuals of the structure and function of your organs and bones, we'll use nuclear medicine (radiation) to capture these images. They can help your doctor detect heart blockages, hairline fractures, diseases, tumors, abscesses and inflammation. In most cases, you don't need to do anything special to prepare.

Ultrasound

Getting your ultrasound is painless and has no known side effects or risks. Your doctor may use ultrasound to capture images of organs and structures inside your body. You may need to fast before your ultrasound. Stop eating eight hours before your ultrasound for scans of the following:

  • Abdomen
  • Renal artery and abdomen
  • Aorta
  • Liver, gallbladder and pancreas

Stop eating four hours before your ultrasound for a renal (kidney) scan. No fasting or special preparation is needed for scans of the following:

  • Thyroid
  • Carotid artery
  • Soft tissue

You also do not need to fast if you're pregnant.

X-Ray

Getting your x-ray is painless and non-invasive. These images allow your doctor to see pictures of the inside of your body and can focus on either bone or soft tissue. In most cases, you won't need to do anything to prepare for your x-ray.

Accredited by the American College of Radiology

Have peace of mind knowing your imaging services meet or exceed nationally accepted standards. We're accredited by the American College of Radiology (ACR) in stereotactic breast biopsy, breast MRI and breast ultrasound. This voluntary, rigorous peer review program evaluates our image quality, team qualifications, equipment, quality control and quality assurance processes.

Stereotactic breast biopsy

If you’ve had a mammogram or ultrasound that showed a lump or abnormality, take a deep breath. The vast majority of these abnormalities are not cancer. The important thing is to follow through with testing. Early detection saves thousands of lives each year, and stereotactic biopsy is a valuable, minimally invasive tool for diagnosing or ruling out breast cancer. You may be referred for stereotactic biopsy if imaging shows:

  • A suspicious solid mass
  • A cluster of small calcium deposits
  • An area of unexplained tissue change

A special mammography machine produces images of your breasts from different angles and helps your doctor pinpoint the exact location of abnormality. After numbing the area, your radiologist will insert a needle into the lesion to remove tissue samples for testing.

 

Digital Mammography

Regular mammograms are your best protection against breast cancer. Most experts agree that you should have a baseline mammogram by age 40, and then a mammogram at least every one to two years. Talk to your doctor about what's best for you based on your personal and family health history. A mammogram only takes a few minutes — and it could save your life.

 

Modern mammography uses low-dose x-rays to create digital images of your breast tissue. A mammogram can detect a lump when it's still too small to feel. The earlier cancer is detected, the better your chances of beating it. Keep in mind that most lumps, even those detected on a mammogram, are not cancer. But it’s important to follow through with recommended testing.

 

If you’ve had mammogram before at another clinic, make sure we have access to the images for comparison. On the day of your mammogram, don't wear any deodorant, powders or perfumes. During your mammogram, the skilled technicians will help make sure your breasts are placed correctly for the best images and to keep any discomfort to a minimum.

Bone Density Testing

Women are four times more likely than men to develop osteoporosis. After age 30—and especially after menopause—women have a loss of bone mass. In some cases, this bone loss can lead to spinal fractures, stooped posture, loss of height, back pain and even hip fracture.

 

Density testing is the most effective way to detect bone loss so physicians can assess your fracture risk. Ask your doctor about bone density testing to see if it's right for you.

Ultrasound

The Women’s Center offers ultrasound services just for women, including breast, pelvic or obstetric ultrasound.

 

A breast ultrasound can help your doctors determine whether a lump is solid or fluid-filled. Solid lumps may require further testing to rule out cancer.

 

A pelvic ultrasound lets your doctors see your uterus, cervix, vagina, fallopian tubes and ovaries. It can help identify cysts, fibroids and other abnormalities, including cancer.

Physical Therapy

Many health issues — such as pelvic pain, urinary incontinence and musculoskeletal problems related to pregnancy — can improve with physical therapy designed just for you. Work one-on-one with our physical therapist in the clinic or at home. Your treatment plan may include EMG biofeedback, electrical stimulation, manual therapy, therapeutic exercise and home exercise instruction.
