Magnetic Resonance Imaging(MRI)

Magnetic Resonance Imaging uses a super conductive electromagnet, radio waves and sophisticated computer software to generate and enhance images. The result is an unprecedented view of internal organs, body structure and systems. Anatomi Imaging utilizes high-quality hardware and software to provide doctors with the detailed images they need to make an accurate diagnosis. MRI provides excellent images without radiation exposure.

What to expect during your magnetic resonance exam

The technologist will constantly be in touch with you via intercom. You’ll lie down on the MRI table, which will move into the scanner. During the exam, you may feel a slight vibration and hear a series of rhythmic knocking or hammering sounds. This is all normal. Some MRI exams require the injection of a contrast dye, which assists the Radiologist in obtaining optimal images to make a diagnosis. Most exams take about an hour.

MRI with Excite HD PROPELLER (for patients with difficulty lying still)

Now it’s possible to get excellent image quality on moving patients. GE’s Excite HD PROPELLER software allows us to “freeze” patient motion and provide useful diagnostic images of pediatric, elderly and confused patients.

Magnetic Resonance Angiography (MRA)

MRA is a special type of magnetic resonance imaging that allows doctors to see blood vessels and blood flow in specific areas of the body. It provides a safe, noninvasive alternative to angiography.

Breast MRI

Breast MRI allows doctors to see what the inside of the breast looks like without having to do surgery or flatten the breast (as with a mammogram). Breast MRI has no known health hazards. MRI can provide images of dense breasts (as found in younger women) and implants.

What to expect during your breast MRI

You’ll lie on your stomach with both breasts hanging freely into a cushioned recess containing a breast coil receiver. The bed moves into the opening of the scanner, and you’ll be asked to lie still for up to 15 minutes at a time while images are acquired. Total exam time is usually an hour or less.

Cardiac MRI

Cardiac MRI help doctors detect blockages in blood vessels, as well as other conditions that can contribute to heart disease, coronary artery disease, vascular disease and stroke. Cardiac imaging can be a fast, effective alternative to more invasive exploratory procedures

Open MRI (for large patients or those with claustrophobia)

While the normal MRI machine has a doughnut shaped scanner with a table that moves through its center, an open MRI machine has a wide, open-sided space between two separate scanner sections. Another option for claustrophobic patients is to receive a sedative before being scanned by a normal MRI machine. Please notify our office if you are claustrophobic, or think you may be. 

Computed Tomography (CT)

Computed Tomography is a sophisticated form of x-ray imaging that provides pictures of the body in a series of slices. A CT scan shows clear images of bone, internal organs, muscles and blood vessels and allows doctors to distinguish between normal and diseased or injured tissue. The CT scanner resembles a large doughnut, and your body passes quickly through it while the scanner obtains images.

What to expect during your computed tomography exam

Depending on the area of the body being examined, we may ask you to change into a gown. You may be given a contrast dye by mouth or by injection with a small needle. The dye may cause brief nausea or a feeling of warmth.

You’ll lie down on the CT table, which passes quickly through the scanner. You may be asked to hold your breath for short periods of time as sections of your body are scanned.

Routine Fluoroscopy 

The Fluoroscope has a tilting table connected to an x-ray machine and a television screen, which shows a real-time x-ray image of your body. The images can also be saved for later viewing and diagnostic analysis.

Many fluoroscopic procedures use a liquid contrast dye, which may be administered by mouth or through injection.

What to expect during your fluoroscopy exam

Depending on the type of testing being done, the technologist may ask you to change into a gown. You will either lie on a table or stand upright on a platform attached to the table, then the fluoroscopy tube will move in front of your body to acquire images. Some tests will require you to drink barium during the imaging process. After the exam, you may be asked to wait on the table while a radiologist checks your images, and in some cases, more images may need to be taken. When finished, you’ll be helped from the table.

X-RAY

An x-ray image is produced when a small amount of radiation passes through the body. The ability of x-rays to penetrate tissues and bones varies according to its composition and mass, which allows doctors to obtain images from inside the body.

Bone Densitometry - Dual Energy X-Ray Absorptiometry ( DEXA )

A DEXA scan measures your bone density with a low dose of radiation, which is interpreted by sophisticated computer analysis. Your test results, after being interpreted by an Anatomi Imaging radiologist, will assist your physician in determining whether you need treatment for bone loss.

What to expect during your bone densitometry exam

A bone densitometry exam is simple and painless. You’ll lie down on a padded table, relax, be as still as possible and breathe normally while a mechanical arm passes above your hip and spine. The entire procedure takes about 20 minutes.

Screening and Digital Mammography

This procedure uses very low doses of radiation to obtain images of the breasts, allowing doctors to detect small cancers even before they can be felt. A radiologist will interpret your mammogram and provide your physician with a written report.

What to expect during your mammography exam

Mammograms are used for two purposes, and the procedure varies for each:

Screening mammogram (for women without disease symptoms):
You’ll change into a gown, and each breast will be compressed for a few seconds while x-rays are taken. The procedure is a bit uncomfortable, but necessary for an accurate evaluation. After the exam, we’ll ask you to wait until the technologist examines the images. Around ten percent of women will be called back after a screening mammogram for additional mammogram views or ultrasound imaging to get a better view of a particular area.

Diagnostic mammogram (for women with lumps, skin changes, nipple discharge, a history of breast cancer or other symptoms/special conditions):
A diagnostic mammogram is essentially the same procedure as a screening mammogram but may include additional views or special techniques to magnify suspicious areas or obtain a better analysis of normal breast tissue. A diagnostic mammogram may take up to one hour, depending on how many views are needed.
