Abdominal ultrasound is a painless exam that uses high-frequency sound waves to capture images of internal views of the stomach and nearby blood vessels. A special jelly is placed on the stomach while a wand-like device called a transducer is moved around.
The Ankle-Brachial Index (ABI) test is performed by measuring blood pressure at the ankle and in the arm while a person is at rest. The test can also be conducted while exercising, in which case the blood pressure measurements are repeated at both sites after a few minutes of walking on a treadmill.
Arterial duplex scan is a painless exam that uses high-frequency sound waves (ultrasound) to capture internal images of the major arteries in the arms, legs and neck. A special jelly is placed on the area being examined while a wand-like device called a transducer is passed lightly over the skin above the artery.
A bone scan is taken after radioactive materials are injected into the blood stream which collects in your bones. The radioactive materials is detected by a scanner to create an image of your bones.
Breast MRI is a powerful diagnostic tool for detecting breast cancer. It produces a clear, sharp image capturing even the tiniest irregularities.
Computed tomography (CT scan) technology uses X–rays and complex computers to create cross–sectional "slice" images of the body. Each image provides detailed internal views of the body at the specific location or slice, including the heart and blood vessels.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a diagnostic test that uses a magnetic field and pulses of radio wave energy to provide pictures of the heart and blood vessels inside the body. MRI provides information that, in many cases, cannot be obtained from an X–ray, ultrasound or CT scan.
Cardiac nuclear study is a painless exam that uses radioactive tracers to capture images of the heart and vascular system. Images reveal how the blood flows to the heart and how the heart pumps while under stress and at rest.
Cerebral Angiography is a minimally invasive medical test that uses x-rays and an iodine-containing contrast material to produce pictures of blood vessels in the brain. Cerebral angiography may also be called intra-arterial digital subtraction angiography (IADSA).
A chest X-ray is a black and white image of the chest area which shows the heart, lungs and bones of the rib cage. The chest X-ray does not show the inside of the heart, but does show its size, shape and location.
Computed tomography (CT scan) technology uses X–rays and complex computers to create cross–sectional “slice” images of the body. Each image provides detailed views of anatomy at the specific location or slice, including bones, soft tissue, brain, organs and blood vessels.
Computed tomography angiography is an exam that uses a contrast (dye) that is placed into the blood stream so that vessels in the body can be seen when an internal image is taken. With Computed Tomography (CT) scanning you will lie on a CT examination table as it moves through the scanner.
Lung cancer is one of the leading causes of mortality in this country, killing more than 161,000 people per year.
Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiometry (DEXA) is a convenient and painless test to identify bone density to determine whether you have osteoporosis and if you are at risk for bone fractures.
X-ray is the oldest and most frequently used form of medical imaging used to diagnose conditions in the chest, bone, sinuses, skull, or spine. It is the fastest and easiest way for a physician to view and assess broken bones and can also be used to diagnose and monitor the progression of degenerative diseases.
Fluoroscopy is a form of diagnostic radiology enabling a radiologist, with the aid of a contrast agent, to visualize an organ or organ system. During fluoro, multiple X-rays are taken in a series, giving the doctor a moving picture of what your body is doing.
The comprehensive teams of expert imaging and radiology specialists at MemorialCare Imaging Centers located in Orange County and Los Angeles County are devoted to utilizing the most advanced imaging technology to provide fast, accurate diagnostic results.
MemorialCare Imaging Centers (MCIC) offer convenient locations throughout south Los Angeles and Orange Counties. These facilities provide the most advanced imaging technology available in a community-based setting. Our warm, friendly and compassionate staff provide insurance verification and assistance with authorizations.
Intravenous Pyelogram, an X-ray of the bladder, is taken by injecting dye into the blood stream which then collects in the urine and is detectable during the X-ray.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a diagnostic test that uses a magnetic field and pulses of radio wave energy to provide pictures of organs and structures inside the body. MRI provides information that, in many cases, cannot be obtained from an X–ray, ultrasound or CT scan.
Mammograms are one of the most important tools in the early detection of breast cancer. This low-dose X-ray can reveal both benign (non-cancerous) and cancerous growths when they are too small to be detected by you or your health care provider.
Nuclear medicine scans are unique because the exam evaluates how the body works. A nuclear medicine scan is a procedure that uses low-grade radioactive tracers (radionuclides) to take pictures of active cells and organs. The exam allows specially-trained radiologists to check for changes in the cells and organs of the body.
Open MRI uses the same technology as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). It uses a magnetic field and pulses of radio wave energy to provide pictures of organs and structures inside the body. Open MRI provides information that, in many cases, cannot be obtained from an X–ray, ultrasound or CT scan.
Not all breasts are the same. In fact, 40% of women have dense breast tissue which is associated with a slight increased risk of developing breast cancer. More importantly, dense breast tissue can mask a breast cancer on a traditional 2D mammogram or mimic one when none exists.
Ultrasound technology uses high-frequency sound waves to produce exceptionally high-quality moving images of the fetus, heart, abdominal organs and other soft tissues of the body. It can also be used for scanning other organs such as the liver, kidneys, uterus and ovaries.
Venous duplex scan is a painless exam that uses high-frequency sound waves (ultrasound) to capture images of internal views of veins that return blood to the heart. During an upper extremity venous duplex scan, the veins in your neck, shoulders, arms and wrists are viewed.
A virtual colonoscopy (VC) is similar to a standard colonoscopy except it is much less invasive—only requiring gentle passage of air into the colon. A virtual colonoscopy is performed with computed tomography (CT) allowing the exam to be faster than colonoscopy and requiring no sedation.
Espree 1.5 Tesla magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) system is a leading-edge technology that produces accurate high quality images and reduces exam times. The Wide Bore MRI offers more room than traditional MRI.
