Dual Energy X-Ray Absorptiometry is performed on an x-ray unit specifically designed for bone mass measurement. DEXA uses fan beam x-ray technology to sample a slightly wider area surrounding specific vertebrae in the lumbar spine. DEXA also samples bone mass in an area of the hip. Because DEXA scans an area of the hip as well as specific areas of the lumbar spine, it is widely used to predict the likelihood of hip fracture.
A Computed Tomography (CT) scan uses special advanced x-rays to gather many images from different angles of your body. The CT scan works by utilizing a rotating x-ray device along with a digital computer to capture detailed cross-sectional and three dimensional images of body tissues and organs. The machine captures these images in sections that resemble slices of bread, allowing clinicians to see the entire surface of a single section. Combined, all of these sections produce a 3-dimensional image.
Breast Cancer diagnosis and prevention continues to be one of the most talked about and important topics in medicine. We at Garvish Radiology understand the importance of early breast cancer detection. That is why we offer the highest quality care in the area and work with patients who have special needs or circumstances.
Breast Cancer is a disease in which malignant (cancer) cells form in the tissues of the breast. One in eight women or 12.6% of all women will get breast cancer in their lifetime. 96% of women, who find and treat breast cancer early, will be cancer-free after 5 years.
Ultrasound is a highly effective, safe, and painless imaging technique used to view soft structures in the body. High frequency sound waves reflect off of a body structure to create an image on a monitor. The echoes from the sound waves create images that show size, distance, and uniformity of an organ. The images are shown in real time on your monitor screen. Garvish Radiology Imaging Center is pleased to be the first outpatient center in the Plainview area to offer 4D Ultrasound technology, which provides a clearer and more detailed image for the radiologist to view. It also allows for a quicker, more comfortable exam for you.
Radiography, known to most people as x-ray, is the oldest and most frequently used form of medical imaging. For nearly a century, diagnostic images have been created by passing small, highly controlled amounts of radiation through the human body, capturing the resulting shadows and reflections on a photographic or digital plate.
