Test and Procedures

Using advanced imaging techniques, the staff at Franciscan Diagnostic Imaging Services performs a wide range of medical diagnostic and radiology imaging procedures to help diagnose and treat patients.

While some imaging technology, such as an x-ray, bone density scan or DXA, visualize skeletal structures, others, including CT and MRI scans, can visualize soft tissue structures. Additional technology like an ultrasound are used to measure blood flow and still others can evaluate organ function (nuclear imaging) or metabolic performance (PET-CT). Scanning arteries of the heart using coronary CT angiography can identify heart blockages in certain patients, ruling out the need for cardiac catheterization. Diagnostic medical imaging can provide answers that once required more invasive procedures.
