Information & Technologies

A 1.5T Highfield MRI offers a high tesla strength to produce images with great quality and highly-details allowing your physician to make an accurate diagnosis. A Highfield MRI machine is open on both ends and is flared on the sides to increase the magnetic strength and features a 60 inch opening. Our fastscan technology reduces imaging scan times without sacrificing image quality so patients can get their scan completed and back to their life quickly.

Our 1.5T Wide Bore MRIs mean you no longer have to sacrifice quality for comfort. Wide-bore MRIs feature a larger, 70-centimeter opening offering more space—a benefit to larger patients or those with claustrophobia. The powerful magnet and fastscan technology of the 1.5T wide-bore MRI provides more accurate results than an open MRI, with shorter scan times and clear, crisp images.

Touchstone’s 64-slice CT provides state-of-the-art technology at a fraction of hospital prices.

The modern open design allows for excellent patient comfort while delivering up to 64 slices with faster scanning, fewer motion artifacts, and shorter breath-hold times.

An arthrogram provides more detailed information about your joints than a traditional x-ray, CT, or MRI can provide. A traditional scan can’t always pinpoint the problem because it is difficult to visualize some areas of the joint. An arthrogram is an imaging procedure that uses the injection of contrast in the joint and then uses x-ray, CT, or MRI to capture images that highlight various tissues in greater detail. Your provider is able to evaluate for small tears in tendons and ligaments or slight dislocations.

Coronary Calcium CT – also called Cardiac Scoring – measures calcified (hard) plaque inside the arteries that can grow and restrict blood flow to the muscles of the heart identifying potential Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) before you have symptoms.

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.

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.

I had to take my 11-year-old in for an MRI of his knee. It was one of the best experiences we’ve had at a medical office in a long time. Everyone was friendly, informative, and professional.

I had to get a brain MRI back in November. The check in process was fast and friendly. I didn’t have to wait long before being taken to the back to get prepped for my procedure. The staff made me feel at ease and the environment is very calming and tranquil. The MRI tech checked on me constantly during the procedure and kept me informed as to which part of the exam we are completing. I can’t remember her name but she was very nice and pleasant. If I ever have to get another diagnostic test, I will be returning here.
