Cardiac Nuclear Imaging

Nuclear imaging is a method of producing images by detecting radiation from different parts of the body after a radioactive tracer material is administered. The images are recorded and then studied by the nuclear imaging physician in order to make a diagnosis. Radioactive tracers used in nuclear medicine are, in most cases, injected into a vein. But for some studies they may be given by mouth. These tracers are not dyes, and they have no side effects. They amount of radiation a patient receives in a typical nuclear medicine scan tends to be very low and similar to the exposure received in a routine chest X-ray.

Digital X-ray

Digital radiography is a form of x-ray imaging, where digital X-ray sensors are used instead of traditional photographic film. Advantages include time efficiency through bypassing chemical processing and the ability to digitally transfer and enhance images. Also less radiation can be used to produce an image of similar contrast to conventional radiography.

General Ultrasound

Ultrasound imaging is a method of obtaining images from inside the human body through the use of high-frequency sound waves. The reflected sound wave echoes are recorded and displayed as a real-time visual image. No ionizing radiation (x-ray) is involved. Ultrasound is a useful way of examining many of the body’s internal organs, including but not limited to the heart, liver, gallbladder, spleen, pancreas, kidneys and bladder.

Musculoskeletal Ultrasound

Ultrasound images of the musculoskeletal system provide pictures of muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints and soft tissue throughout the body.

Vascular Ultrasound

Because ultrasound images are captured in real-time, they can show movement of internal tissues and organs and enable physicians to see blood flow and heart valve functions. With ultrasound images, radiologists can locate and identify blockages and abnormalities like blood clots, plague or emboli and help plan for the effective treatment.

Echocardiography

Echocardiography or echo, is a painless test that uses sound waves to create moving pictures of your heart. The pictures show the size and shape of your heart. They also show how well your heart's chambers and valves are working. Echo can pinpoint areas of heart muscle that are not contracting well because of poor blood flow or injury from a previous heart attack.
