Our Services

CT (Computed Tomography)

CT imaging provides cross-sectional images of the body tissues and organs in specific areas in the body by using computer processing and X-ray equipment (a state-of-the-art multi-detector scanner). Although we specialize in studies involving the head and neck, we also perform various routine exams including, but not limited to: chest, abdomen, pelvis, spine, extremities, etc.

All studies can be performed using axial and coronal reconstructions and/or 3D views.

For additional exam specific information:

MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging)

Magnetic Resonance imaging uses radio waves and a magnetic field to generate high quality, detailed images of the brain, spinal cord, bones, joints, soft tissues and blood vessels. Although we specialize in studies involving the head and neck, we also perform various routine exams including, but not limited to: chest, abdomen, pelvis, spine, extremities, etc.

All studies can be performed using sagital, axial and coronal views with 3D multiple reconstruction.

X-RAY

Our technologists use a computerized radiography (CR) system to provide state-of-art digital images utilizing the alara principal (as low as reasonably achievable) to minimize exposures. Although we specialize in studies involving the head and neck, we also perform various routine exams including, but not limited to: chest, abdomen, pelvis, spine, extremities, etc.

Routine Studies:

  • Abdomen (KUB)
  • Chest
  • Intra-Occular FB
  • Lateral Neck
  • Nasopharynx (Adenoid)
  • Sinus/Orbit/Skull views
  • Temporal Bone (Mastoid)
  • Portable exams

Fluoroscopic Procedures

  • Barium Swallow
  • Dacrocystography
  • G-Tube Study
  • Lumbar Punture
  • Modified Barium Swallow
  • N-G Tube Guidance
  • Sialography
  • Tracheal

Ultrasound

Ultrasound imaging, also known as sonography, is a method of obtaining images from inside the body through the use of high-frequency sound waves. The reflected sound wave echoes are recorded and displayed as a real-time visual image. No ionizing radiation (x-ray) is involved.

Routine studies performed include:

  • Head and Neck (thyroid, parathyroid, parotid)
  • Guidance for vascular access
  • Guidance for needle placement
  • Biopsies (thyroid, parotid gland, neck masses and lymph nodes)
