Our pediatric imaging specialists are experts in radiation safety and recognize that children require special care and treatment when undergoing diagnostic imaging. Radiation safety protocols have been developed with your child’s safety in mind. These pediatric protocols result in quality images with minimal radiation exposure.
Nuclear medicine uses very small amounts of radioactive substances, or tracers, to diagnose or treat disease. Tracers are substances that are attracted to specific organs bones or tissues. When tracers are introduced into the body, they produce emissions. A special type of camera, a scintillation or gamma camera, is used to transform these emissions into images, which provide information about the anatomy and function of the body part being imaged. The radiologist interprets the images to determine the cause of your medical problem.
Northside Hospital’s Radiology Department is equipped with state-of-the-art MRI, CT and Angiography equipment for the diagnosis and treatment of neurological disorders.
With expertise in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasound, computed tomography (CT), fluoroscopy, and PET-CT, our body imaging subspecialists concentrate on imaging disorders of the abdomen and pelvis. This includes the lungs, liver, stomach, spine, pelvis, kidneys, colon, pancreas, other organs and all portions of the abdomen.
Diagnostic radiology is the field of medicine that uses imaging exams and procedures to diagnose a patient.
Interventional radiologists are board-certified physicians who specialize in minimally invasive, targeted treatments. They offer in-depth knowledge of the least invasive treatments available. They use X-rays, MRI and other imaging to advance a catheter in the body, usually in an artery, to treat at the source of the disease non-surgically. Interventional radiologists are true pioneers in minimally invasive modern medicine.
When first diagnosed with cancer, patients are often overwhelmed with emotions and have many questions. Oncology imaging helps answer those questions, providing a clearer picture of what is happening in the body before, during and after treatment.
The Institute for Orthopaedic Imaging (IOI) offers patients a comprehensive range of musculoskeletal imaging services. The IOI provides state-of-the-art imaging for all muscular soft-tissue and bone conditions by our dedicated team of imaging and patient care specialists. Our team of highly qualified musculoskeletal radiologists is dedicated to personalized service and high-quality imaging and interpretation.
While all of our radiologists provide the highest quality of care to women in their area of specialty, we have a number of physicians who have chosen to specialize in Women’s Imaging and have pursued advanced education and training in the field.
We provide high-quality care to patients from the minute they arrive for their screening mammogram, through any additional testing or therapy they may need, all the way through survivorship. We are sub-specialized in women’s imaging and mammography and we bring that expertise to patient care and can provide the latest technologies, techniques and procedures. We work closely with our patients at each stage of their diagnosis and treatment.” -Lynn Baxter, Director of Breast Imaging
