Diagnostic Imaging

Diagnostic imaging involves the use of radiography and fluoroscopy (x-rays), ultrasonography, computed tomography (CT), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to obtain information about the anatomy of inner organs of the chest and abdomen, as well as complex regions such as the head (brain), neck, and spine with minimal risk to the patient. These modalities complement each other and are considered non-invasive diagnostic techniques that provide information which cannot be obtained on physical examination or bloodwork. In addition, further information about the abnormalities identified can be obtained by using the imaging modality techniques to guide sampling procedures such as fine needle aspirates and/or biopsies. All of the information obtained can help the clinician reach a diagnosis and aid in determining the next step required to manage a patient’s illness.
