  • MRI
    Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a test that uses a magnetic field and pulses of radio wave energy to produce pictures of organs and structures inside the body. In many cases, MRI gives different information about structures in the body than can be seen with an X-ray, ultrasound, or computed tomography (CT) scan.


  • CT Scanning
    A computerized tomography scan is sometimes called a CT or CAT scan. Computerized tomography creates images using a computer and an X-ray sensing unit that circles around your body. Each image is a visual slice through the inside of your body.


  • Ultrasound
    Ultrasound produces sound waves that are beamed into the body causing return echoes that are recorded to "visualize" structures beneath the skin. The ability to measure different echoes reflected from a variety of tissues allows a picture to be constructed. Unlike x-rays, ultrasound does not involve exposure to radiation.


  • Arthrogram
    An arthrogram is a test using x-rays and fluoroscopy to see the soft tissue structures of your joint, such as tendons, ligaments, muscles, cartilage, and your joint capsule.
