Whether you or a loved one needs a mammogram, an X-Ray, a PET/CT scan or other diagnostic imaging procedure, you want accurate results. At Baptist Health Care our skilled, experienced radiology physicians and technicians use the latest technology to provide clear, precise and detailed images for better diagnosis and improved treatment. Our compassionate, professional staff takes great care to provide for our patients' comfort.
- Arthrogram, Arthro-CT & Arthro MR
- A diagnostic record that can be seen on an X-Ray after injection of a contrast fluid into the shoulder joint to outline structures such as the rotator cuff. In disease or injury, this contrast fluid may either leak into an area where it does not belong, indicating a tear or opening, or be blocked from entering an area where there normally is an opening.
- Cardiac Nuclear Medicine
- Cardiac nuclear medicine is a health care specialty involving the use of radioactive compounds to perform diagnostic imaging examinations that can lead to the effective treatment of many diseases. Although nuclear medicine is often considered an independent discipline, it is closely related to radiology in that radiation is used to develop images of human anatomy.
- CT Scan – 16 Slice BH GBH JH BMP-Navarre BMP-9
- Although also based on the variable absorption of X-Rays by different tissues, computed tomography (CT) imaging, also known as "CAT scanning" (computerized axial tomography), provides a different form of imaging known as cross-sectional imaging.
- CT Scan – 64 Slice BH GBH JH BMP-Navarre BMP-9
- 64-slice cardiac CT allows nearly all patients to be scanned with very high resolution. Scan times are now on the order of several seconds (usually 5 to 13 seconds); this means that even patients with severe pulmonary disease and congestive heart failure can hold their breath for the required length of time. Reduced time translates to minimal or no motion artifacts.
- An echocardiogram is an ultrasound of the heart and has been the most widely used diagnostic test for heart disease for more than 50 years. Echoes are noninvasive procedures used to provide an image of a patient's heart through the use of high-pitched sound waves that are sent through a device called a transducer. The sound waves bounce off of various parts of the heart creating "echoes," which are then used to develop a moving picture.
- Intravenous Pyelogram (IVP)
- An intravenous pyelogram (IVP) is an X-Ray examination of the kidneys, ureters and urinary bladder. An IVP study uses a contrast material (iodine) to enhance the X-Ray images. The contrast material is injected into the patient's system and its progress through the urinary tract is then recorded on a series of quickly captured images. The exam enables the radiologist to review the anatomy and the function of the kidneys and urinary tract.
- LightSpeed VCTXTe 64 Slice CT
- The LightSpeed VCT XTe 64-slice CT scanner and adaptive statistical iterative reconstruction (ASIR) technology further improves the clarity and quality of the image, while reducing the patient’s exposure to radiation.
- Lower GI Tract (Barium Enema BE)
- This is an X-Ray evaluation of the large intestine, also known as the colon. Radiological images are created by passing small, highly controlled amounts of radiation through the body and capturing the resulting shadows and reflections on film. Most people are familiar with X-Ray images, which produce a still picture of the body's internal organs. A similar imaging method, fluoroscopy, uses X-Rays to capture an image of an organ while it is functioning.
- Mammography (Digital) BH GBH BMP-9 BMP-Navarre JH
- At Baptist facilities, digital mammograms are provided by the experienced, caring Women's Imaging staff. Our team is specially trained to guide women through their mammogram experience with compassion and assurance. Digital mammography uses digital receptors and computers, rather than X-Ray film. Images are read by highly trained radiologists who provide accurate and efficient turnaround service to provide results to patients and their doctors. Digital mammograms allow for a lower radiation dosage and produce improved image quality with greater sensitivity, which makes it easier to spot possible abnormalities.
- Mammography (3-D Breast Imaging) BH GBH BMP-9
- 3-D digital mammography takes more precise and detailed images at various angles, which can be reconstructed to create a 3-D view of the breast. This technology allows doctors to examine the inner architecture of the breast without distortion, which helps them see abnormalities earlier when breast cancer is most treatable.
- MRI BH GBH BMP-9 JH
- MRI is a procedure that uses a magnet, radio waves and a computer to make a series of detailed pictures of areas inside the body. This procedure is also called nuclear magnetic resonance imaging (NMRI).
- MRI (Breast)
- Breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is an imaging test that creates detailed pictures of the inside of the breasts without the utilization of ionizing radiation. MRI of the breast is not a replacement for mammography or ultrasound imaging but rather a supplemental tool that has many important uses.
- MRI – Wide-Open 3 Tesla
- The wide-open 3 tesla MRI (3T) provides exceptional images, comfort and speed. The only wide-bore 3T in the region, the machine’s 70-centimeter wide opening helps make a patient’s MRI experience as comfortable as possible — without compromising image quality.
- Myelogram and Myelo CT
- A myelogram is an X-Ray or CT scan of the spine that is performed after dye has been injected into the spinal fluid.
- Nuclear Medicine BH GBH JH BMP-9
- Nuclear medicine is a subspecialty within the field of radiology. It comprises diagnostic examinations that result in images of body anatomy and function. The images are developed based on the detection of energy emitted from a radioactive substance given to the patient, either intravenously or by mouth. Generally, radiation to the patient is similar to that resulting from standard X-Ray examinations.
- PET CT BH
- PET is an acronym for positron emission tomography; CT stands for computerized tomography. A PET-CT scanner merges both technologies into a single machine…a single test.
- Osteoporosis/Bone Density Testing (DEXA Scan) BH GBH BMP-9 BMP-Navarre
- A bone mineral density test is the only way to diagnosis osteoporosis and determine your risk for future fracture. Since osteoporosis can develop undetected for decades before a fracture occurs, early diagnosis is important. A BMD measures the density of your bones (bone mass) and is necessary to determine whether you need medication to help maintain your bone mass, prevent further bone loss and reduce fracture risk.
- Radiography and Fluoroscopy
- Fluoroscopy is a technique for continuous or intermittent X-Ray monitoring. X-Ray images may be viewed directly without taking and developing X-Ray photographs. This allows observation of certain dynamic body processes and is useful in certain surgical and diagnostic procedures.
- Ultrasound imaging, also called ultrasound scanning or sonography, is a method of obtaining images from inside the human body through the use of high-frequency sound waves. The reflected sound wave echoes are recorded and displayed as a real-time visual image. No ionizing radiation (X-Ray) is involved in ultrasound imaging. Obstetric ultrasound refers to the specialized use of sound waves to visualize and thus determine the condition of a pregnant woman and her embryo or fetus.
- Upper GI Tract Radiography
- Also called an "upper gastrointestinal (GI) series" or simply an "upper GI," upper gastrointestinal tract radiography is an X-Ray examination of the esophagus, stomach and first part of the small intestine (also known as the duodenum). In order for the anatomy to show up on radiographic images, the upper gastrointestinal tract must be coated or filled with a contrast material called barium, an element that appears bright white on radiographs.
- X-Ray BH GBH JH BMP-Airport BMP-Navarre BMP-9 BMP-Pace
- Radiography, or as it is most commonly known, an X-Ray, is the oldest and most frequently used form of medical imaging. Discovered more than a century ago, X-Rays can produce diagnostic images of the human body on film or digitally on a computer screen.
