Bone densitometry measures changes in bone density
precisely, providing information in the assessment
of metabolic bone disease. It is used primarily to detect osteopenia
or osteoporosis, diseases in which the bone's mineral content
and density are low and the risk of fractures is high.
Computed Tomography (CT)
A CT scan uses X-rays combined with a computer
to produce multiple cross-sectional images in rapid sequence. These
images are pictures of slices through the body, much like slices
from a loaf of bread. The pictures let the radiologist see the
bones and soft tissues within the body more clearly. Spiral CTs
continuously scan the body as it passes through the CT, resulting
in higher quality images and decreasing the time it takes to conduct
Digital mammography uses a special detector to capture and convert X-ray energy into a digital image. The resulting images are immediately available to a board-certified radiologist for review.

tissue. Tracking these waves allows your doctor to make an accurate assessment of organ and tissue function.
is a technique that sends high frequency sound waves into the
body. The sound waves are directed at a specific organ or,

and analyzes the information to create an image.
