Starts with understanding what is happening inside your body.
- You know something isn't right.
- You have an injury that hasn't healed well.
- You went to the Doctor and they ordered a diagnostic imaging test.
- The unknown outcome has become an unsettling feeling you are wrestling with.
All of these feelings are absolutely normal. To navigate that process is more than just having a test done. It's knowing that where you go will be met with a sense of calm, reassurance, and peace of mind. It's knowing that the team walking with you, is helping you have the conversation(s) you need to.
That's where our Medical Diagnostic Imaging Team at Brooks Memorial Hospital comes in.
DID YOU KNOW?
According to the National Osteoporosis Foundation, women who are taking osteoporosis medication should get a DXA-Scan 1-2 years after initiating therapy and every 2 years thereafter.
The American Cancer Society & American College of Radiology recommend yearly screening mammograms for women starting at the age of 40.
Here are the services we provide to you and our community as part of our Medical Diagnostic Imaging Department.
Also known as "sonography" or "diagnostic medical sonography". High frequency sound waves give us pictures and information that assist in determining a diagnosis.
Some of the Breast Imaging Procedures we provide include full field digital mammography, Breast MRI, Breast Ultrasound, & Breast Biopsies.
Routine X-Ray & Fluoroscopy
This is the easiest way for us to get a look at the "structures" inside your body, particularly your bones.
Stands for "Magnetic Resonance Imaging". Very helpful in diagnosing pathologic conditions such as cancer, heart and vascular disease, stroke, and musculoskeletal disorder.
DEXA Bone Density
This is the most common test for treating bone density over time. It's a very fast, pain free, and low radiation test. Also know as a "DXA Scan".
We provide non-invasive diagnostic examinations including Carotid Duplex, Venous Duplex, Arterial & Abdominal Duplex.
Using nuclear isotopes as a part of the imaging study, ("radionuclides"), we can learn better how to diagnose, treat, and monitor your current condition.
"CT" stands for "Computerized Tomography". It's a series of X-Rays taken from multiple angles, so that we can see cross-sectional images of both bones and soft tissues inside your body. It's very helpful to quickly examine people who may have internal injuries/trauma to visualize nearly all parts of the body.
