A bone density scan (Dual-Energy X-ray Absorptiometry ) measures the density and mineral content in bone, most often in the hip or lower spine. Commonly used to diagnose osteoporosis.
X-ray is the most frequently used form of medical imaging worldwide. It is used to diagnose disease, monitor therapy and identify potential problems.
Nuclear medicine uses very small amounts of radioactive materials (also called radiopharmaceuticals) to diagnose and treat disease.
Computed tomography (CT) helps differentiate between healthy and diseased tissue in any part of the body, making it possible to accurately diagnose many diseases at an early stage.
Fluoroscopy uses a continuous low-dose X-ray beam, often combined with a contrast material (dye), to produce images of organs and bones in real time.
PET/CT is a specialized type of nuclear imaging. Its primary use is in the evaluation of cancer. Less common uses include neurological and cardiac evaluation.
