IMAGING SERVICES

We offer the following on-site imaging services:

 

Bone Densitometry

Various methods are available to assess bone mineral density. The gold standard is done by "Dual-energy X-ray Absorptiometry” or DXA and it is the method that we use. DXA assessments use a low dose of X-ray that is about 1/100th the amount of radiation that is used by a standard chest X-ray.

 

Extremity MRI

The office has a dedicated extremity MRI machine that helps assist with diagnosing and managing inflammatory arthritis.  The images are read by a group of radiologists headed by a nationally recognized radiologist certified by the American Board of Radiology who all have specialized training in Musculoskeletal Radiology.

We are an official IAC (Intersocietal Accreditation Commission) accredited site for providing MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) .  This meets the requirement to provide this service that was implemented by CMS (Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services) as of January 2012.  For more information check the IAC website.
