A CT Scan - also called Computerized Tomography or just CT - is an X-ray technique that produces images of the body to visualize internal structures in cross sections, rather than the overlapping images typically produced by conventional X-ray exams.
MRI uses a large magnetic field, radio frequency and a computer to provide highly accurate images of the body. The areas of the body usually examined are the head, spine, all joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments. MRI is superior to other imaging techniques
when examining soft tissue areas in the body.
MRI can provide valuable information on many conditions. In some cases, a specialized MRI can be a helpful tool in diagnosing disease. This is especially important when other methods of imaging
are unable to provide the information your physician needs to make a diagnosis or develop a treatment plan. Specialized MRI scans offered at West Boca include a Breast MRI, MRI Guided Biopsies and Anesthesia assisted Pediatric MRIs.
Ultrasound is a medical procedure that uses sound waves to image different areas of the body. The most common exams are of the abdomen, pelvis, blood vessels and of the fetus during pregnancy. Ultrasound is very safe and non-invasive, which makes it a
very useful diagnostic tool.
An X-ray (radiograph) uses low-dose radiation to produce quick, painless, and relatively inexpensive images of the internal structures of the body. Some X-ray procedures require ingesting or injecting a radiopaque substance that helps to visualize internal
X-rays are safe and are one of the most useful tools a physician has in determining a diagnosis and/or treatment. Ordering physicians are able to view X-ray images on any computer in the hospital or in their offices via a restricted internet
portal. If requested, images can also be burned onto CD’s.
