“I’ve been to touchstone five times, four in the last six months. The staff is excellent, check-in is easy, and the nurse/technician people are always so kind yet efficient so it’s easy to get in and out (for x-rays and CT scans). Billing has never been a problem either. Last time I was there I paid only what I thought I might eventually owe and they were fine with that. When my insurance paid the balance they sent a notice that I owed nothing more. “ ~ Janice H.
A Wide Bore MRI scanner is designed to benefit claustrophobic patients, or patients that simply do not feel comfortable in a traditional MRI machine. The 1.5T has half the teslas of a 3T MRI machine making them great for visualizing the brain or abdomen, where artifact is more likely to occur and is safer for those who have implanted devices — joints, pacemakers, stents, etc. — or other metal in their body, including bullets or shrapnel.
A CT scan, also known as a CAT scan or Computed Tomography, is a special kind of X-ray that takes pictures of a cross-section of a part of your body. CT scan images provide more detailed information than traditional X-rays are able to. CT scans are used to quickly examine people who may have internal injuries and may be used to observe internal organs and tissues of the body to diagnose disease or injury.
Ultrasound is a safe and painless procedure that is used to produce images of the inside of the body using sound waves. Ultrasound imaging, also called ultrasound scanning or sonography, involves the use of a small transducer (probe) and ultrasound gel placed directly on the skin. Ultrasounds are useful to scan internal organs, fetuses, and breast tissue.
An x-ray (radiograph) is a quick, painless medical test that helps physicians diagnose and treat medical conditions. Radiography involves exposing a part of the body to a small dose of ionizing radiation called electromagnetic waves. The various body tissues absorb the radiation differently, creating different shades in an image to produce pictures of the inside of the body. Calcium in the bones absorbs radiation the most, so bones appear bright white while soft tissues absorb less and look gray. Air absorbs the least, so lungs and empty spaces appear black. X-rays are great for looking for broken bones or scarring in the lungs.
Fluoroscopy uses injected contrast dye and an X-Ray machine to take a continuous series of X-rays instead of individual snapshots. It is most commonly used to evaluate parts of your body that are moving in order to create a short video of your body system in motion. It is particularly useful for observing the digestive, urinary, respiratory, and reproductive systems and their functioning.
If your doctor has ordered an arthrogram, it is to get more information about your joints than a traditional CT or MRI can provide. An arthrogram is a test that uses X-rays to guide and evaluate the injection of contrast directly into the joint. After this has been done, you may be required to have an MRI or CT in order to obtain more information from the scan.
