CT Scan

A computed tomography (CT) scan is a relatively simple, safe, and completely painless examination that radiologists have performed for many years.  The scan produces a series of images and can detect many conditions that do not show up on conventional x-ray.

Digital Mammography

Mammography is a specific type of imaging that uses a low-dose x-ray system for an examination of your breasts.   This exam is called a mammogram and is used as a screening tool to detect early breast cancer in women with no symptoms and to detect and diagnose breast disease in those that are experiencing symptoms such as a lump, pain, or nipple discharge.
