Comprehensive Radiology Services
The radiology specialists at EMU Health are proud to offer a wide range of imaging services for both diagnostic testing and monitoring of your condition. While there are various imaging services available at our state-of-the-art facility, common imaging techniques include the following:
An X-ray is a common diagnostic imaging technique that utilizes X-ray beams to create detailed images of the bones within the body. As X-ray beams are emitted, they are absorbed in different amounts depending on the density of tissue inside you – this is why your bones show up as white on an X-ray. X-rays are commonly used to diagnose conditions such as fractures, arthritis, swallowed items, digestive problems, breast cancer, enlarged hearts, and lung conditions.
Sonography, also called ultrasound, is a diagnostic imaging technique that uses sound waves to produce images of the area being treated. Often associated with gynecology, ultrasounds are also used to diagnose gallbladder disease, assess blood flow throughout the body, examine a breast lump, evaluate the thyroid gland, and detect problems affecting the prostate or genitals.
Vascular and cardiac radiology is a branch of radiology that uses diagnostic imaging to diagnose and treat diseases related to the vascular system. Most commonly, this means the heart, arteries and veins––blood vessels that are responsible for carrying oxygen and other important nutrients throughout our bodies. Through vascular radiology, medical teams can identify issues like
- Deep vein thrombosis
- Pulmonary embolism
- Varicose veins
Vascular and cardiac radiology procedures include but are not limited to:
- Cardiac MRIs
- Coronary Angiography (CTCA)
- Blood Vessel Angiography
- Coronary Artery Calcium Scoring
