North Carolina Diagnostic Imaging offers a full range of imaging services with board-certified physicians, certified technologists, service-oriented staff and state-of-the-art imaging technologies.
If your doctor has recommended you have a diagnostic imaging test such as an X-ray, MRI, CT scan, ultrasound, or mammogram, a North Carolina Diagnostic Imaging center is your first choice for accuracy, dependability, ease and convenience.
Our centers offer a full range of imaging services with board-certified physicians, certified technologists, service-oriented staff and state-of-the-art imaging technologies.
Arthrography is the x-ray examination of a joint that uses fluoroscopy and a contrast material.
A bone density test is a noninvasive procedure that uses x-rays to measure bone mass. The exam provides a measurement corresponding to the mineral density of bone, used to diagnose osteopenia and osteoporosis.
A computed tomography scan (CT or CAT scan), is a diagnostic imaging procedure that uses a combination of x-rays and computer technology to produce cross-sectional images (often called slices) of the body. A CT scan shows detailed images of the body, including the bones, muscles, and organs. CT scans are more detailed than general x-rays.
Fluoroscopy is an imaging technique commonly used by physicians to obtain real-time images of the internal structures of a patient through the use of a fluoroscope.
Mammograms are one of the best ways to find the early stages of breast cancer. It can reveal small tumors up to two years before you or your doctor can feel them. These scans also catch images of tiny calcifications that are often non-cancerous, but if they form clusters, could become cancerous. These micro-calcifications cannot be viewed by an ultrasound and may be missed by a breast MRI. This is why mammograms saves lives--it could save yours.
Recommended for women with dense breasts or with a family history of breast cancer. Images are taken at the same time as a regular mammogram with the same system. The X-ray arm sweeps in an arc over your breast while taking multiple images in one millimeter slices. It provides a higher accuracy rate.
An MRI is a diagnostic procedure that uses large magnets, radio frequency pulses and a computer to produce detailed images of organs and structures within the body.
A branch of medical imaging that uses small amounts of radioactive material to diagnose, determine the severity of, or treat a variety of diseases. More specifically, nuclear medicine is a part of molecular imaging because it produces images that reflect biological processes that take place at the cellular level.
An ultrasound, also called sonography, is a diagnostic imaging exam that uses a small transducer (probe) and ultrasound gel to expose the body to high-frequency sound waves to create images of blood vessels, tissues and organs. Ultrasounds are able to view internal organs in real-time to assess function and blood flow through various vessels.
An X-ray is a diagnostic test uses small doses of radiation to produce images of internal tissues, bones and organs onto film.
