Professional Imaging is the right choice because...
- Professional Imaging provides board certified radiologists with sub-specialties in neuroradiology and musculoskeletal imaging. Sub Specialty Board Certified Radiologist on site is advantageous for our patients and referring physicians – they are available to provide additional consultation as needed.
- We have a Registered Nurse on site to assess and recover patients having Myelograms and Arthrograms. The RN is also able to dispense medication to help patients relax without needing to reschedule the patient.
- Professional Imaging has certified, experienced, and highly-trained radiological technologists. Just as importantly, they are caring individuals who work hard to make sure that patients have a positive experience and receive a diagnostic quality study.
- Professional Imaging offers convenient scheduling and is able to accommodate patient scheduling demands. We have easy access parking with both a Quest Laboratory and Goldsmith retail pharmacy in the building, offering patients multiple services at one location.
- Professional Imaging has state of the art equipment accredited by the American College of Radiology including: a “short bore” 1.5 tesla MRI, multi slice CT, Myelography, Arthrography, and X-Ray. Also available is the i-Stat point-of-care analyzer which provides fast, accurate on-site blood testing, in the event it is clinically warranted.
- Professional Imaging has a digital environment, including a cutting-edge Radiology Information System and Picture Archiving Communications System (RIS/PACS) for digital archiving of all patient information and imaging.
- On-line results and reports available for the doctor.
- We offer a Sub Specialty Board Certified Radiologist. Radiology Group is provided by Midwest Radiological Associates.
- We offer self pay rates with payment options.
MRI is an important diagnostic tool for viewing organs and early detection of disease. The MRI uses magnetic fields, radio waves and computers to generate images of tissues within the body. The MRI’s signals from the body are generated using a safe magnetic field in combination with radio waves of a specific frequency.
MRI images are typically of fine detail and quality. Often, the exam is used to clarify or confirm findings from x-rays and imaging studies. The MRI series is totally non-invasive. And, there are no known harmful side effects, as compared to radiation.
What is a CT Scan
Computed tomography scanning, also called CT scan, CAT scan, or computerized axial tomography, is a diagnostic tool that provided views of internal structures using x-rays. CT scans are used to image bone, and soft tissues. Because the computerized image is sharp, focused, and three-dimensional, many structures can be better differential (visualized) when compared with standard x-rays.
