What is Diagnostic Imaging, Anyway?

September 1, 2017

 

 

Have you ever played football and hurt your shoulder throwing the last

spiral for that winning touch down? Maybe you were driving, on your way to get a pumpkin spice latte when *BAM* someone slams into you. You feel your neck immediately throbbing. Possibly, like me, you were just walking and tripped over air, and landed on your ankle wrong. Whatever the case may be, we've all been in instances where we've somehow managed to injure ourselves. The question is, where do you go from there? Typically, your doctor's office. If s/he deems it appropriate they will send you for a closer look. That's where we come in. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

That's just a fancy way of saying that diagnostic imaging is the act of taking pictures of the inside of the body without having to actually go inside the body. There are multiple modalities when it comes to medical imaging such as:

 

  • X-Ray

  • Computed Tomography (CT)

  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

  • Ultrasound

  • Mammography

  • Positron Emission Tomography (PET)

 

 

     

     

    Well now you know what diagnostic imaging is and how it helps your doctor, help you. If you have any questions, feel free to leave them in the comments section and we'll get back to you.
