Exceptional Imaging Care
Your test is our most important task. Whether you need a simple X-ray or a complex interventional radiology treatment, you’ll have the highest level of care, from each provider, every step of the way.
A Full Suite of Imaging Tests
- Bone Density Scan (DXA)
Used to measure bone loss and diagnose osteoporosis, this painless test is an enhanced form of X-ray technology. A DXA scan can also assess your risk for developing fractures.
- Computed Tomography (CT) Scan
Combining the use of high-tech computer systems and X-rays to take specialized images of your brain, organs and bones, CT scans produce clearer images and reveal more detail than X-rays alone. That’s why doctors find them beneficial for diagnosing any medical conditions.
- Interventional Radiology (IR)
This specialized area of radiology uses X-ray, fluoroscopy, ultrasound and other imaging technologies to treat a variety of medical conditions without surgery. These minimally invasive procedures include biopsies, inserting venous access devices, draining fluids and opening narrowed blood vessels.
- Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
Using a powerful magnetic field, radio-frequency pulses and a high-tech computer, technicians can produce detailed pictures of organs, soft tissue and bone to help your doctor diagnose any medical conditions. There’s no exposure to radiation with an MRI, and it’s among the safest and most versatile of imaging methods.
There are two types of mammograms: Screening and diagnostic. A screening mammogram is an annual preventative screening for women age 40 and older who haven’t experienced any abnormal breast symptoms. A diagnostic mammogram is typically for women who display symptoms that need to be investigated, such as a breast lump or nipple discharge.
- Nuclear Medicine
A special branch of imaging, nuclear medicine uses tiny amounts of radioactive substances called radiotracers to diagnose disease and evaluate functions within your body. Taken orally or by intravenous (IV) injection, radiotracers accumulate in targeted organs or tissue where they give off energy that can be captured by a gamma camera.
- PET-CT scan
If it’s suspected you have a tumor, a PET-CT scan can help your doctor detect it, and better determine whether it’s malignant (cancerous) or benign (not cancerous). PET-CT technology
can locate masses nearly three times smaller than those visible on traditional scans.
Ultrasound imaging provides your doctor a way to see pictures of the inside of your body. And because ultrasound images are captured in real time, they can show the structure and movement of your body’s internal organs, as well as blood flowing through your blood vessels — helping to diagnose and treat any medical conditions.
Conventional ultrasound displays the images in thin, flat sections of the body. Advancements in ultrasound technology include three-dimensional (3D) ultrasound that formats the sound wave data into 3D images. Four-dimensional (4D) ultrasound shows a 3D ultrasound in motion.
- Women's Imaging
Women have unique imaging needs — from routine mammograms and bone density scans to fertility tests and the monitoring of fetal development. We offer a full range of women’s imaging services, and are specially trained to deliver high quality care in a welcoming and caring environment.
Producing a two-dimensional image of the inside of your body, X-ray technology is a quick and effective imaging tool to assist your doctor in diagnosing any medical conditions. The X-ray beam passes through your body and is captured on a computerized detector.
If needed, your doctor can also request a real-time X-ray (fluoroscopy). This produces a moving image of your body’s functioning organs, such as your gastrointestinal or urinary tract.
Specially Trained for Even the Littlest Patients
AdventHealth for Children provides full-service pediatric imaging services, from general X-ray services to the latest in CT, MRI, ultrasound and nuclear imaging technologies.
Since imaging can be a frightening to a young child, our team of physicians, pediatric technologists, child life specialists and pediatric nursing staff are specially trained to help your child understand their imaging procedure, and put them at ease. And, each of our radiologists is qualified in pediatric radiology, so they can accurately analyze and interpret the images of our littlest patients.
