Computed Tomography (CT) Scan
An x-ray machine linked to a computer that takes a series of detailed pictures of internal organs. You may receive a contrast material (such as dye) to make these pictures easier to read.
Digital mammography is the best screening and diagnostic tool available for breast cancer detection. Used in conjunction with our state-of-the-art ultrasound equipment, this technology offers greater accuracy and faster processing.
Positron Emission Tomography (PET)
After a small amount of radioactive material is injected into the bloodstream, a scan shows chemical activities in the body. Cancer cells sometimes show up as areas of high activity.
This procedure uses a thin, lighted tube to examine the organs inside the body.
inReach™ Electromagnetic Navigation Bronchoscopy
The inReach™ Electromagnetic Navigation Bronchoscopy System can detect lung cancer early, even before symptoms are evident. inReach™ is a minimally invasive procedure that does not carry the risks often associated with surgery. The inReach™ System can be used with a wide range of patients, including those who suffer from poor lung function or who have had cancer surgery, chemotherapy or radiation therapy.

This procedure uses ultrasound to precisely locate areas in the larger airways of the lung for diagnosis without surgery.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Scan
During an MRI scan, a strong magnet linked to a computer creates detailed images.
Picture Archiving and Communication System
Our digital imaging system is based on the Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS), which allows images to be instantly viewed from remote locations. PACS acts as a digital filing system to store images in an organized way, enabling easy retrieval of records for all the doctors and technicians within each patient’s treatment network.
A small amount of radioactive material is injected through the bloodstream and collects in certain bones or organs. A scanner detects and measures the radioactivity.
An ultrasound device sends out sound waves that people cannot hear. The waves bounce off tissues inside the body like an echo. A computer uses these echoes to create a picture called a sonogram.
