The Power of Digital X-Ray Imaging

DDigital X Ray In Middletown NJigital x-ray imaging is a step above traditional x-ray procedures. With digital radiography, physicians are equipped with a higher resolution image to use for diagnostic interpretation. The images can also be easily manipulated for a more diverse approach to diagnosing medical conditions.

Our experienced and certified x-ray technicians will guide you through the digital x-ray process. You’ll either stand near an x-ray cassette holder or rest on our exam table to achieve the required positioning. You’ll then remain still for just a few seconds while our x-ray technician steps behind a radiation barrier. Digital x-rays use an extremely low amount of radiation compared to traditional methods, and yet offer medical professionals a greater variety of diagnostic options.

The entire exam will take between 10 and 30 minutes. This is a much faster appointment than with traditional x-ray technology, which allows you to enjoy a shorter imaging visit. We provide results to your physician within 24 hours, and in an emergency situation, we can deliver your digital x-rays to your doctor within one hour.

Whether you want to schedule your appointment or prefer to walk in without one, we’ll be able to provide you with the best digital x-ray imaging in the area. Learn more at our digital x-ray information page.

Less Restrictive Imaging With Our Open MRI Scanner

Middletown Medical Imaging Open MRIMagnetic resonance imaging is a popular diagnostic imaging technique because it yields excellent results. The accuracy of the images allows for better diagnoses by physicians, which in turn results in better treatment for patients. What traditional MRI units don’t offer is comfort. With confined spaces, patients are often uncomfortable or sometimes can’t be accommodated by the restrictive size of the scanner.

Our Hitachi Airis Open MRI Scanner changes all of that. Designed to maintain the outstanding image quality of traditional MRI scanners, this open MRI alternative gives patients additional comfort and freedom. By removing the confining spaces, patients are more at ease and the scanner can accommodate any body style.

All patients are required to do is to lay on a cushioned table that slides beneath the scanner. Our expert technicians monitor patients and keep in touch with them throughout the procedure over a speaker system so they are never alone.

Middletown Medical Imaging is proud to provide this popular and extremely accurate imaging technique to our patients. You and your physicians will be able to take advantage of the high quality images our open MRI machine takes. Best of all, your scans will be available quickly. We pride ourselves in providing images to physicians within 24 hours, or within one hour in an emergency. Schedule an appointment or simply walk into our imaging center today for your Open MRI!

Efficient and Accurate Diagnosis with High Resolution Ultrasound

 Our Siemens Acuson X300 high resolution ultrasound, offers the highest quality images.

offers the highest quality images.

For studying soft body tissues, there’s little to compare with the quality of high resolution ultrasound images. For a wide range of medical conditions and diseases, ultrasound imaging provides the best way to assess the problem and start formulating solutions.

During a high resolution ultrasound procedure, sound waves inaudible to the human ear are emitted by the equipment. Using an instrument called a transducer, the sound waves–at a very high frequency–are transmitted through the body’s tissues. The echoes of these sound waves bounce back and determine the size, shape, and consistency of the body’s organs and soft tissues.

This safe and painless procedure is useful for a wide variety of detection and diagnosis including issues with:

  • Heart
  • Breast
  • Abdomen
  • Liver
  • Spleen
  • Gallbladder
  • Bladder
  • Kidneys
  • Pancreas
  • Ovaries
  • Uterus
  • Thyroid
  • Testicles
  • Transvaginal

Choosing the Acuson X300 ultrasound system, manufactured by Siemens, our ultrasound images deliver exceptional performance with maximum efficiency for faster treatment.

Our high resolution ultrasound system is both accurate and quick. We can provide fast reporting to referring physicians. Generally, reports are ready within 24 hours, and even available within one hour under emergency conditions. Let us help you deliver exceptional diagnoses with our high resolution ultrasound equipment.

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.
