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. Ascension Via Christi 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.
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.
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.
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 )
What to expect during your bone densitometry exam
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.
