Imaging studies available at Nuvance Health include:
This test uses low-dose radiation (electromagnetic) waves to capture images of bones and certain organs, like your stomach. X-rays can detect broken bones or signs of a lung infection, among other issues.
Computed Tomography (CT) Scan
CT scans produce a series of X-rays from different angles. Special technology puts the images together for a detailed, 3D view of bones and tissue. You may benefit from a CT scan if you have complex bone or joint issues, cancer symptoms or a potential blood clot.
We wave a handheld device (transducer) over a specific area of the body. The transducer gives off soundwaves that bounce off the body to create images of organs and other soft tissue. You may need an ultrasound to examine swelling from injuries or monitor an unborn baby’s development.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
A powerful magnet and radio waves scan a specific area of the body. A computer interprets the information to produce images of nerves, organs and other tissue. MRIs provide more detailed information than CT scans.
Mammography and Breast ImagingThese imaging studies are for breast cancer screening, diagnosis and treatment planning. We produce focused images that enable doctors to examine tissue and blood flow. Find out more about breast imaging services.
Heart (Cardiac) Imaging
These advanced medical imaging studies enable cardiologists or emergency room doctors to check for small blockages, valve or muscle issues and more. Find out more about cardiovascular imaging and testing services.
