64 Slice CT

A CT exam uses a special X-ray tube to produce a series of computerized images of your body. It can detect medical conditions that do not appear on traditional X-rays.

An X-ray is a noninvasive test that assists in diagnosing and treating various medical conditions. X-rays involve exposing a body part to a small dose of ionizing radiation, which allows physicians to look inside the body.

The 3T MRI is the fastest diagnostic magnetic resonance imaging technology available. It has a stronger magnet than the traditional MRI and makes very detailed images of organs and soft tissue. It is used to make images of the brain, the spine, the soft tissue of joints and the inside of bones and blood vessels.
