Digital X-Ray and Ultrasound

X-ray and ultrasound remain our primary imaging tools and have a remarkably wide range of applications. Our digital X-ray equipment enables our doctors and specialists to quickly obtain high-quality images of the heart, lungs, and musculoskeletal system, and diagnose conditions such as bone fractures, arthritis, deformities, heart enlargement, lung disorders, and more. Because we can take X-rays with greater speed and accuracy, our patients can spend less time being handled and repositioned.

Ultrasound imaging uses sound waves instead of radiation to produce moving images of different parts of the body, particularly the abdominal cavity, heart, and blood vessels. Ultrasound is ideal for viewing the soft tissues and assessing the blood supply, size, shape, and texture of the organs. With ultrasound we can diagnose cysts, tumors, fluid accumulation in the abdomen, heart activity, pregnancies, and much more. We can also use ultrasound to guide biopsies and other minimally invasive procedures.
