A radiological exam is designed to image or see inside a specific area of your body for the purpose of diagnosis. Advanced Diagnostic Imaging Center (ADIC) offers several different types of diagnostic exams and imaging services and procedures in our center.


Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is one of the safest and most comfortable imaging techniques available. It combines a powerful magnet with an advanced computer system and radio waves to produce accurate, detailed pictures of organs and tissues to diagnose a variety of medical conditions. Because MRI can give such clear pictures of soft-tissue structures near and around bones, it is the most sensitive exam for spinal and joint problems. MRI is widely used to diagnose sports-related injuries, especially those affecting the knee, shoulder, hip, elbow, and wrist. The images allow the physician to see even very small tears and injuries to ligaments and muscles. Each examination is tailored to individual requirements, so donít be alarmed if your exam is different from one that you have had before, or if some additional pictures are taken after the first series is completed. From start to finish, the picture-taking part of the test usually lasts between 10 to 35 minutes.

About the Procedure:
We suggest that you arrive about 15 minutes prior to your appointment. The Staff will ask you certain questions. You should advise the technologist if you have any of the following:

  • Aneurysm Clips or Metal Plates
  • Artificial Cardiac Valves
  • Bone or Joint Replacements
  • Possible Metal Fragments
  • Pregnancy
  • Previous Surgery
  • Any metal implants
  • Cardiac pacemakers or implanted defibrillators or stents
(Please be sure to bring your pacemaker card or stent card with you.)




A CT (Computed Tomography) Scan, often called a CAT scan, is a painless examination that gives your physician an unobstructed look at organs and structures that cannot be seen clearly on conventional X-rays. The scanner obtains image data from different angles around the body, and then uses computer processing of the information to show a cross-section of body tissues and organs.

 




Diagnostic ultrasound is a non-invasive medical test which evaluates the organs of the body, blood vessels (arteries and veins), as well as the status of an unborn fetus during pregnancy. 3D and 4D ultrasound are non-invasive and safe diagnostic ways to view amazing details of your child in the womb, and doctors can more clearly screen and diagnose potential problems before the baby is born.

 



Mammography is a special x-ray examination of the breast. It is the most effective method available for detecting breast cancer at an early stage. Mammography can show changes in the breast well before a woman or her physician can feel them. Once a lump is discovered, mammography can be key in evaluating the lump to determine if it is cancerous. We offer digital mammograms with mammo pad (R).

 




A bone density test uses special x-rays to measure how many grams of calcium and other bone minerals are packed into a segment of bone. The higher your mineral content, the denser your bones are. And the denser your bones, the stronger they generally are and the less likely they are to break. Doctors use a bone density test to determine if you have, or are at risk of, osteoporosis.
