Modern Diagnostic Imaging
An accurate and timely diagnosis is the first step in a treatment plan. DISC’s physicians utilize diagnostic imaging as needed to ensure a detailed understanding of each patient’s condition. DISC features a state-of-the-art imaging center equipped with MRI and CT technology, conveniently located in the same facility as the surgery center and soft tissue center. The close proximity and digital integration of the Mink Radiology Imaging Center streamlines patient care. Radiologists work cohesively with treatment specialists at an unmatched level of efficiency and accuracy.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
This noninvasive medical imaging technique uses a powerful magnetic field to create a detailed three-dimensional view of the inside of the body. The images it produces are similar to those generated by a Computed Tomography CT scan, but MRI images provide a much clearer view of soft tissues. This makes MRI a valuable diagnostic tool for the visualization of cancer, infection, internal bleeding and soft tissue trauma.
Computed Tomography (CT) Scan
CT scans, sometimes called CAT scans, are specialized x-rays used to diagnose and treat certain medical conditions. CT scans are most commonly used to study the chest, abdomen and pelvis and are helpful in diagnosing cancers, vascular diseases and bone injuries.
