Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) uses a powerful magnetic field, radio waves and a computer to produce detailed pictures of the bodyâ€™s internal structures that are clearer, more detailed and more likely in some instances to identify and accurately characterize disease than other imaging methods.
Computed tomography (CT) uses x-rays and computer reconstruction to generate high resolution 3-dimensional images of the inside of the body. East River Medical Imaging employs the latest CT technology. Â Our machines employ advanced algorithms to reduce radiation dose and metallic artifact producing the most diagnostic images with the least amount of x-rays.
East River uses a state-of-the-art dual photon X-Ray system to perform bone densitometry of the spine and hip. This system utilizes extremely low radiation to assess the strength of the bones in your body. It will also compare your measurements to a reference population based on your age, weight, sex and ethnic background. This information will enable your physician to determine whether you are at risk for fractures due to osteoporosis.
Interventional Radiology uses radiologic techniques such as fluoroscopy, CT, MRI and ultrasound to perform minimally invasive procedures including biopsies, myelograms and vascular access.
Nuclear Medicine scans are diagnostic examinations in which radioactive material, or isotope, is injected and travels through the bloodstream to the target organ. These isotopes transmit a pattern of rays representing the organ size, shape and function.
Ultrasound can be used for diagnosis or treatment of musculoskeletal injuries and disease.Â Images of the musculoskeletal system are created by sending sound waves into the body and listening for their return.
PET/CT is an acronym that stands for two methods of imaging: Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and Computed Tomography (CT).Â The combined imaging of these methods produces a series of images that can detect conditions that were previously undetectable by traditional imaging methods.
Ultrasound utilizes sound waves rather than x-rays to produce a medical image or picture of various organs and tissues in the body. As the ultrasound waves penetrate the body, they are reflected back to the transducer by the internal organs. These echoes contain information that is converted into an image of the organ being examined.
East River Womenâ€™s Imaging is committed to helping women take control of their health. We proudly partner with the patientâ€™s physician and provide only the highest quality of imaging available. Imaging of the breast improves a physician’s ability to detect small tumors. When cancers are small, the woman has more treatment options and a cure is more likely.
Radiography and Fluoroscopy involves the use of X-Rays to identify healthy or abnormal conditions within the body. This is one of the most direct methods for detecting causes of certain health problems and checking on your progress.
