Purpose

Heart - CTA Heart Coronary Arteries Screening with Contrast

A coronary computed tomography angiogram (CTA) is a heart-imaging test that helps your doctor determine whether fatty deposits or calcium deposits have built up in your coronary arteries, the arteries that supply blood flow to the heart.

Bone - DXA Bone Densitometry Examination-DEXA

Bone density scanning, also called dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) or bone densitometry, is an enhanced form of x-ray technology that is used to measure bone loss. DEXA is today's established standard for measuring bone mineral density (BMD).

Carotid Arteries - Doppler Carotid Scan Bilateral

Carotid ultrasound is a painless imaging test that uses high-frequency sound waves to create pictures of the inside of your carotid arteries. ... The transducer is a handheld device that sends and receives sound waves. If combined with Doppler ultrasound, this test also can show how blood is moving through your arteries.  This study provides early diagnosis of a narrowed carotid artery which can lead to stroke and death.

Heart - Echocardiogram 2D with Spectral Color Flow Doppler -ECHO

The purpose of this study is to determine the size of your heart, to evaluate how well your heart is functioning or pumping and to assess the structure and function of the valves within the heart. A 2-D (or two-dimensional) echocardiogram can display a cross-sectional “slice” of the beating heart, including the chambers, valves and the major blood vessels that exit from the left and right ventricle. A Doppler echocardiogram measures the speed and direction of the blood flow within the heart. It screens the four valves for leaks and other abnormalities. By assigning color to the direction of blood flow, (Color Flow Mapping), large areas of blood flow may be studied. 

Prostate - US TRANSRECTAL Prostate -PRST

Ultrasound of the prostate uses sound waves to produce pictures of a man’s prostate gland and to help diagnose symptoms such as difficulty urinating or an elevated blood test result. It’s also used to investigate a nodule found during a rectal exam, detect abnormalities, and determine whether the gland is enlarged. Ultrasound is safe, noninvasive, and does not use ionizing radiation.

Breast - Screening Digital Mammogram w/CAD & TOMOSYNTHESIS 3D

Breast tomosynthesis, also called three-dimensional (3-D) mammography and digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT), is an advanced form of breast imaging, or mammography, that uses a low-dose x-ray system and computer reconstructions to create three-dimensional images of the breasts. Breast tomosynthesis aids in the early detection and diagnosis of breast disease.

Breast - Screening Digital Mammogram w/CAD

A mammogram is an x-ray picture of the breast. It can be used to check for breast cancer in women who have no signs or symptoms of the disease. It can also be used if you have a lump or other sign of breast cancer. Screening mammography is the type of mammogram that checks you when you have no symptoms.

Heart  - Calcium Scoring CT Without Contrast-HRT

Coronary calcium scans use a special X-ray test called computed tomography (CT) to check for the buildup of calcium in plaque on the walls of the arteries of the heart (coronary arteries). ... Coronary calcium scans are also called cardiac calcium scoring. The coronary arteries supply blood to the heart.

Abdomen - MRI With & Without (or) Without Contrast

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a type of noninvasive test that uses magnets and radio waves to create images of the inside of the body. The magnets and radio waves create cross-sectional images of the abdomen, which allows doctors to check for abnormalities in the tissues and organs without making an incision.  In some cases, contrast material may be used during the MRI scan to show certain structures more clearly in the pictures. The contrast material may be used to check blood flow, find some types of tumors, and show areas of inflammation or infection.

Pelvis - MRI Without or W/WO Contrast

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a type of noninvasive test that uses magnets and radio waves to create images of the inside of the body. The magnets and radio waves create cross-sectional images of the pelvis, which allows doctors to check for abnormalities in the tissues and organs without making an incision.  The contrast material checks blood flow, find some types of tumors, and show areas of inflammation or infection.

Uterus - Hysterosonography

Hysterosonography, is a noninvasive technique that involves the slow infusion of sterile saline solution into a woman’s uterus during ultrasound imaging.  Hysterosonography allow the doctor to evaluate abnormal growth inside the uterus; abnormalities of the tissue lining the uterus; or disorders affecting deeper tissue layers.  Hysterosonography does not require either radiation or contrast media, and is a non-surgical procedure.

Pelvis – UltraSound

A pelvic ultrasound is a noninvasive diagnostic exam that produces images that are used to assess organs and structures within the female pelvis.  A pelvic ultrasound allows quick visualization of the female pelvic organs and structures including the uterus, cervix, vagina, fallopian tubes and ovaries.
