Computerized tomography, or CT, scans have become very popular among physicians for the incredibly detailed results they provide. These images assist in diagnosing and treating a wide variety of medical conditions. More accurate images provide more accurate treatments and for the most detailed computer tomography, we provide a 16-slice CT scan procedure.

Using a computer and x-ray sensing unit, physicians use CT scans to display detailed images of areas that are difficult to study otherwise. Abdomen, chest, and pelvis examinations are far simpler to conduct with CT scans than with other techniques. CT scans can also illuminate bones and the spinal cord better than other procedures.

What kinds of injuries, infections, or other conditions are best examined with a CT scan?

  • Chest
  • Abdomen
  • Liver
  • Urinary Tract
  • Gallbladder
  • Adrenal Glands
  • Pancreas
  • Pelvis
  • Spleen

A 16 slice CT scan will also provide better insights into arm, leg, ankle, and foot injuries.

Break the Confines with Our Open MRI Machine

Open MRIMagnetic Resonance Imaging is now available without the discomfort. Our open MRI machine allows patients to be scanned without the space restrictions of traditional MRI units. This provides peace of mind to our patients that may have difficulties entering confined spaces. This extra freedom gives our patients a comfortable experience they’ll never forget.

The highly accurate images from this non-invasive imaging technique produce a high level of detail that helps in diagnosing a variety of ailments. Because the open MRI machine is more spacious, it not only allows those with mild claustrophobia to obtain high quality diagnostic images, but also allows a more diverse range of body types into the scanner. This allows our office to scan patients who would not be comfortable in more traditional MRI scanning devices.

A cushioned table slides you beneath the scanner and high quality audio keeps you connected to our staff at all times during the procedure. Additional monitoring for patients who require it is also easier with an open MRI unit as opposed to an enclosed model.
