Our advanced imaging services will include:
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) generates images of the body without using radiation. Instead, MRI uses a strong magnet and radio waves to create an image. There are no known harmful effects from the magnetic field or exposure to radio waves associated with creating MRI images.
Clemmons Medical Center offers MRI imaging through advanced mobile MRI technology.
Computerized tomography (CT or CT scan) is an x-ray imaging technique that enables observing bodily organs that cannot be seen with conventional x-rays.
We use CT scans for various procedures including:
- Coronary artery screening.
Ultrasound is a painless medical test that helps your doctor to diagnose and treat certain medical conditions. Unlike x-rays, which use radiation, ultrasound exams use reflected sound waves to examine areas of the body.
Ultrasounds may be used in a:
- Transcranial study
- Venous study
- Arterial Doppler study.
X-ray exams use invisible electromagnetic energy beams to produce pictures of your body's tissues, bones and internal organs on film. Standard x-rays are the most commonly-used form of medical imaging. They are used for many procedures including diagnosing tumors or bone injuries and are painless.
