Radiology + Imaging

Because your health is more than skin deep, we provide imaging and radiology services to answer important questions about your health that you can’t see with the naked eye. Your care team may use technologies like a CT scan, MRI, ultrasound, X-ray and nuclear medicine testing to diagnose and treat various medical conditions.

An image can say a thousand words about your health

You are your biggest health advocate. So when something doesn’t feel right, or you suspect you or your child may be living with a medical condition that’s affecting daily life, don’t delay seeking help.  

Our team uses the latest imaging and radiology diagnostics to explore the inner workings of your health, monitor your treatment progress and even treat medical conditions.

Imaging and radiology technology can help us not only visualize, examine, and diagnose medical conditions, but it can also help us treat them, too.

Interventional radiology can diagnose and treat certain medical conditions as an alternative to more complex and invasive surgeries. With interventional radiology, most procedures lower the risk of complications with less pain, smaller incisions (usually the size of a pencil tip) and shorter recovery times.

Radiation oncology

Radiation oncology (also called radiation therapy) is a type of cancer treatment that's used alongside chemotherapy or as its own treatment method. It delivers precise, high-dose X-ray radiation directly to unhealthy tissue and cancer cells while protecting the surrounding healthy tissue. 



When you’re searching for answers about your health, you deserve to see the whole picture. We provide complete and prompt care using the latest diagnostic radiology technologies and nuclear medicine services. 

Diagnostic radiology

Diagnostic radiology uses external energy sources, like magnetic fields and X-rays, to visualize the inside of your body. Your care team uses these images to determine the cause of your health problems. We can provide answers to the most pressing questions about your health with the following diagnostic radiology tests:

Nuclear medicine

Nuclear medicine is a type of radiology that uses tiny amounts of radioactive material to get a clearer picture of the inside of your body. Your doctor may recommend nuclear medicine testing to get a clearer view of soft tissue, organs or abnormalities like tumors or cysts. 

You can rest assured your care team will use as little radioactive material as possible and only opt for these services if they’re medically necessary:

  • Bone scan
  • Myoview stress test
  • Sentinel node breast exam
  • Thyroid scan

Additional imaging services

Cardiovascular imaging

Cardiovascular (cardiac) imaging uses the latest imaging technology to get a clear picture of your heart and blood vessels. These images allow us to detect, diagnose and even treat a variety of cardiovascular conditions like heart failure and heart disease. 

Musculoskeletal imaging

The musculoskeletal system is a network of muscles, bones, tendons, ligaments, nerves and cartilage. We use musculoskeletal imaging tests to both diagnose and treat conditions affecting your mobility.

Pediatric radiology

We use safe, state-of-the-art equipment that helps us provide important answers about our littlest patients' health. So when your child requires pediatric radiology to diagnose or monitor a condition, we’ll do everything possible to limit their exposure to radiation. Your child’s safety is our top priority.
