Bone Mineral Density (BMD)

The bone mineral density test is a computerized x-ray scan of your lower spine and hips. It measures how much calcium and other types of minerals are in an area of your bone. This test can help your health care provider identify osteoporosis, determine your risk of bone fractures and measure your response to treatment.

Interventional Radiology

Interventional radiology (also known as angiography) is a test guided by X-rays to diagnose or treat diseases in your body. These procedures are done using a needle and a narrow tube (catheter). This lowers the need for large incisions (cuts) in the body and is often done under local anesthetic (freezing).

PET CT Scan

A PET CT (Positron Emission Tomography Computed Tomography) scan is an imaging test showing how an organ or tissue works. MRI and CT scans are different than a PET CT scan because they show the structure (shape or make up) of organs or tissue inside your body. 

PET scans can help health care providers diagnose many conditions, find early stages of diseases like cancers, injuries, and infections and see abnormalities even without seeing structural changes. 

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) is a way to take detailed images of organs and tissues (muscles and fat) throughout the body, without the use of X-rays. MRI uses a powerful magnet, radio waves and computers to produce images that will help your doctor determine if you have an injury or disease.

Nuclear Medicine Tests

Nuclear medicine tests help diagnose a variety of diseases. A very small, safe amount of a medical isotope (radioactive substance) is injected into a vein, swallowed or breathed in. Specials cameras are usually used to see images of your organs. 

Sometimes, Nuclear Medicine is used to treat disease.

The length of the test varies depending on what organ is being viewed. Often, multiple scans will be performed. This may require return visits to complete the exam. Details, including any special preparations, will be provided when your appointment is confirmed.
