Radiology is a medical specialty that uses imaging procedures to diagnose and treat diseases. Arizona Institute of Medicine & Surgery offers high-quality radiology services at affordable rates, including:
X-rays are a type of radiation. An X-ray test is a quick and painless procedure that produces images of your bones and other dense materials in your body. X-rays can confirm or rule out a variety of conditions, including broken bones and arthritis.
Fluoroscopy uses continuous X-ray tests, creating a video instead of a static image. This test shows the movement of structures in various systems in your body, including the skeletal, digestive, and respiratory systems.
A CT scan takes a series of X-rays from various angles around your body and uses computer processing to create cross-sectional images called slices. CT scans provide more detailed images than X-rays and show the soft tissues inside your body. Arizona Institute of Medicine & Surgery boasts a 32-slice CT scanner.
An MRI doesn’t use X-rays. Instead, MRIs use a powerful magnetic field and computer-generated radiofrequency pulses to create high-resolution images of your internal organs and tissues.
Ultrasound is another imaging test that doesn’t use X-rays. Ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to produce images of the structures inside your body. Ultrasound serves many purposes, from diagnostic testing to providing visual guidance for a biopsy or other procedure.
