Stereotactic Breast Core Biopsies

This procedure is a safe and minimally-invasive way to obtain tiny samples from an abnormal breast mass for examination by a pathologist. A sample of breast tissue is precisely located with a computer-guided imaging system and removed with a needle. The procedure is completed on an outpatient basis with a minimum of discomfort and recovery time.

DEXA (Osteoporosis Screening)

This enhanced form of x-ray technology is a quick and painless way to measure bone loss, estimate risk of future fractures and accurately diagnose osteoporosis.

Interventional Angiogram

This x-ray exam of the arteries and veins can diagnose blockages, narrowing in a blood vessel and other blood vessel problems. In many cases, our radiologist can treat a blocked vessel or place a stent without the need for surgery.

Ultrasound/Vascular Imaging

Ultrasound imaging is a painless procedure that uses high frequency sound waves to produce real-time images of tissues, organs, blood vessel and blood flow. A wide range of diagnostic ultrasounds are available including: obstetrics, abdominal, vascular, biopsies and prostate.

Echocardiography

Also known as a cardiac ultrasound, echocardiography employs real-time imaging for a quick and accurate assessment of the overall health of the heart.

Nuclear Medicine/PET Imaging/ Cardiac Stress Testing

These tests involve the injection of a radioactive “tracer” that allows for the evaluation of organ function and bone abnormalities.

Radiofrequency Ablation

This noninvasive procedure will use mild, painless radiofrequency waves to locally heat tumors to kill cancer cells for liver, bone and kidney cancer.

Venous Ablation

This minimally invasive varicose vein treatment procedure uses radiofrequency energy to heat, collapse and seal off the targeted blood vessels.
