SHA offers a full service Medical Imaging Department with a wide range of exams including:

  • CT Scan
  • Mammography
  • MRI
  • Nuclear Medicine
  • Ultrasound

CT SCANNER (Computed Tomography or CAT Scans):


This type of exam produces very detailed images of the body which provides us information about the internal organs, bones, and soft tissues. Exams are captured into cross-sectional (slices) images which aids in detecting disease.


BONE DENSITY (DEXA):


A Duel-Energy X-ray Absorptiometry (DEXA) test is a bone density study used to determine what your bone mas is to diagnose osteoporosis.


Mammography


We are ACR accredited (American College of Radiology), and offer 3D mammography allowing us to detect breast cancer earlier and more effectively than conventional 2D mammography.

One in eight women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime and that is why the recommendation is to start screening at age 40. If a biopsy is recommended, we offer stereotactic or ultrasound guided services performed by one of our board certified Radiologist.


MRI (Magnetic Resonance imaging)

Another type of imaging but does not use radiation.  MRI can differentiate between soft tissue, fat, water and muscle better than a CT scan. WE also offer breast imaging for extremely dense breast tissue when recommended by your physician.


NUCLEAR MEDICINE


This type of imaging measures the “function of your body’s organs/systems through the introduction of a small dose of a radioactive isotope.


ULTRASOUND


Imaging is obtained utilizing “sound waves” and does not use radiation. Several different exams are offered including:

  • Abdominal
  • Breast
  • Cardiac (Echo)
  • Fetal
  • Gynecological
  • Obstetrics
  • Vascular
  • 3D/4D imaging
