Bone densitometry is a test to measure changes in bone density
precisely, providing invaluable 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 is unique because it 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
Mammography is a simple technique of obtaining X-rays of the
breast. While most detectable masses of 1.5 to 2 centimeters or more can usually be felt through breast examination, smaller
lumps located deep within the breast tissue can be detected
only by X-ray. Mammography involves passing low doses of X-rays
through the breasts and does not require any dyes or injections.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
uses a powerful magnetic field combined with radio waves
to stimulate the body’s water molecules. Stimulated molecules
release signals that are picked up by the MRI scanner, which
produces cross-sectional images similar to pictures of slices
through the body. A special computer analyzes this information
and creates an image of the tissue or bone on a video screen.
Nuclear Medicine procedures have the capability to assess tissue
function as well as metabolism and blood flow. An imaging agent
called a radiopharmaceutical is injected into the patient.
Radiopharmaceuticals contain a small amount of radioactive
element that attaches itself to organs. Different agents are
used to attach to specific organs under study. A gamma camera
records the radioactivity emitted by the organ and surrounding
Marshall Medical Center utilizes two ultrasound machines. Ultrasound
is a technique that sends high frequency sound waves into the
body. The sound waves are directed at a specific organ or,
in the case of obstetrical ultrasound, to a growing fetus.
The sound waves hit the target body part and bounce back as
a series of echoes. The ultrasound scanner detects these echoes
and analyzes the information to create an image.
