Comprehensive Patient-Focused Imaging Procedures
When working with the radiologists at Diagnostic Imaging Associates, you can expect the highest standards of care and compassion to be upheld. Our fellowship trained physicians put patients first, ensuring you leave your imaging procedure feeling confident and informed.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI Scan)
Magnetic resonance imaging is an imaging procedure that does not use radiation, but rather a powerful magnetic field and radio frequency to diagnose and treat medical conditions. It is used most frequently to evaluate conditions such as tumors and diseases of the brain, spine, liver, heart, and bowel. Our radiology team works to keep you comfortable and relaxed despite the non-invasive nature of the exam.
Computed Tomography (CT Scan)
Computed tomography (CT) is a test used to create detailed internal images of internal organs, bones, soft tissue, and blood vessels for proper diagnosis of medical conditions. DIA performs CT imaging to assist your care team in identifying and treating medical conditions. A fast, painless, and noninvasive procedure, your DIA team works to ensure your comfort and accurate results throughout your imaging.
Vascular & Interventional
Interventional radiology (IR) is a medical specialty that performs minimally invasive treatments using imaging for procedure guidance. These procedures include image-guided biopsies, cancer therapies, and various endovascular procedures—resulting in less risk, less pain, and less recovery time compared to open surgery. Even so, being seen for an interventional procedure can be worrisome. That’s why the physicians at DIA are first and foremost dedicated to your comfort and confidence before, during, and after your procedure.
DIA women’s imaging services cover a range of imaging procedures from mammography to ultrasound and MRI. Image-guided breast biopsies can be performed as an outpatient procedure to diagnose benign and potentially malignant areas. Prior to your testing, your care provider will instruct you on how to best prepare for your procedure. You can expect respect for your privacy throughout your study, and to leave fully informed on next steps for your care.
When you come in for an x-ray with Diagnostic Imaging Associates, you will work with your care team to diagnose conditions ranging from fractured bones to infection. DIA physicians promise to thoroughly assure and instruct you on how to best position your body to gain the clearest results, including instructions on breathing if deemed necessary.
Radiologists at DIA utilize fluoroscopy to diagnose medical conditions such as pain, acid reflux, and other gastrointestinal symptoms in a minimally invasive manner. A fluoroscopy procedure involves the use of a fluoroscope to project x-ray images in a sequence. This allows your physician to monitor the progression of movement, giving your care team a comprehensive and detailed account of your medical condition.
Ultrasound (also called sonography) is used to capture images to properly diagnose and treat a variety of conditions. Utilizing sound waves to produce pictures of the inside of the body, this safe and noninvasive procedure aids in the diagnoses of conditions from obstetrics to kidney imaging and beyond. The physicians at Diagnostic Imaging Associates promise to prioritize attention to detail and your comfort.
Neuroradiology is a subspecialty of diagnostic radiology which focuses on diagnosing abnormalities of the head, brain, spine, and neck using a range of neuroimaging techniques. The health of your neurological system is of utmost importance to your team of neurologists, neurosurgeons, and neurointerventionalists. The physicians at DIA assist your care team in interpreting images to diagnose strokes, tumors, genetic conditions, aneurysms, Alzheimer’s Disease and more.
Your DIA musculoskeletal radiologist works with your team of sports medicine physicians and orthopedic surgeons to accurately assess abnormalities of the bones, joints, and associated soft tissues. Your physician may refer you to a radiologist to diagnose arthritis, internal joint derangements, or other joint conditions.
Pediatric radiology utilizes specialized protocols tailored specifically for children to properly diagnose illnesses, injuries, and diseases of infants, children, and adolescents. These protocols allow care teams to accurately assess pediatric conditions in a way that is comfortable for children.
Nuclear medicine imaging provides unique information about a patient’s condition that cannot be obtained through other imaging procedures. During your procedure, your physician injects or asks you to inhale/swallow small amounts of radioactive materials called radiotracers. The radiotracer travels through the area being examined and gives off energy that can be detected by specialized equipment. This creates sophisticated images that are used by your care team to assess, diagnose, and treat your medical condition.
Body imaging radiology is used to assess diseases involving the chest, abdomen, and pelvis. Your physician may refer you to a radiologist to diagnose cancer staging or disorders of the chest, genitourinary system, and/or gastrointestinal system. In order that you receive the best care, your physician works with a team of urologists, pulmonologists, gynecologists, gastroenterologists, oncologists, radiation oncologists, and surgeons.
