Midtown Imaging is designed to meet the unique health care needs of women in one convenient, community-based location. Midtown’s goal is to provide outstanding diagnostic imaging services, emotional comfort and time efficiency for women facing often stressful medical procedures through top-notch expertise and the most advanced medical equipment available.
Quality images and skilled, experienced physicians and staff to interpret them are cornerstones of excellent medical care. Imaging is a rapidly growing field of medicine that helps patients in new ways each day. New technologies may result in more accurate, earlier diagnoses and less invasive procedures. Midtown Imaging offers a range of advanced imaging including:
Bone Density - A low-energy X-ray that helps diagnose osteoporosis. Scans of the lower back, hip, or forearm measure the amount of calcium in bones.
Breast MRI - This test offers valuable information about conditions that cannot be obtained by other imaging modalities such as mammography or ultrasound.
CT Angiography - This specially designed X-ray uses contrast dye to take images of blood vessels and organs. Types of angiography include coronary, peripheral and hepatic.
CT Scans - Computed tomography combines X-rays and computer scans. The result is a detailed picture that can show problems with soft tissues, organs and bones.
Digital Mammography - An advanced technology, digital mammograms have proven more effective in screening women over 50 and those with dense breasts. Digital mammograms also are more portable and easily transmitted.
Esophagram - An X-ray that helps diagnose swallowing or gastrointestinal problems. Patients swallow a barium solution to make abnormalities more visible on the X-ray.
Fluoroscopy - An X-ray that obtains real-time images of the body's internal structures. In its simplest form, a fluoroscope consists of an X-ray source and fluorescent screen.
Interventional Radiology - A radiology subspecialty in which minimally invasive procedures are performed using image guidance to diagnose or treat illness.
MRI - Magnetic Resonance Imaging provides detailed pictures of the inside of the body using strong magnets and radio waves.
Nuclear Medicine - A nuclear medicine scan uses a small amount of radioactive material and a special camera to create pictures of organs and bones.
PET Scan - Positron Emission Tomography examines organs and body tissues such as heart, brain and lymph nodes. Rather than showing the structure of a body part, PET images show its chemical function and changes in how it works.
Ultrasound - An imaging test that uses sound waves to form pictures of the body's interior.
X-ray - An X-ray uses a small amount of radiation to create images of bones and organs.
