Web Based Imaging:
All images are in web based
format to allow for easier and more timely access to images.
Our specialty imaging technologists have advanced certification in mammography, sonography, MRI, CT and nuclear medicine. The on-site radiologists are certified by the American Board of Radiology and have leading-edge expertise in a wide array of medical imaging specialties.
Our core radiologists provide 24/7 coverage, Fellowship-Trained Specialities, and comprehensive reports for your physician.

Services Offered at the Anderson Imaging Center include:
Computed Tomography ("CT" or scan) is a way of looking inside your body using a special camera. The images produced are cross - sectional, like the slices in a loaf of bread. These pictures are created with the help of a computer and are capable of depicting various internal body parts in much greater detail than standard X-Ray films. This greatly enhances the doctor's ability to diagnose a medical condition.
DXA SCAN is bone density testing used in the detection of osteoporosis. This quick and painless test uses low doses of x-rays to detect changes in bone density. The results can be used by a physician to diagnose osteoporosis and to make treatment recommendations. (At the Friends of Hope Breast Diagnostic Center)
Fluoroscopy is a technique often used to observe the digestive tract (Upper GI series - Barium Swallow, Lower GI series - Barium Enema or "BE").
Digital Mammography is a special X-Ray of the breast. It is a radiological procedure available to detect small cancers long before they can be felt by you or your doctor. As the X-Rays pass through the breast tissue, an actual picture of the tissue inside is obtained. (At the Friends of Hope Breast Diagnostic Center)
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI or MR) is one of the safest, most comfortable imaging techniques available. It combines a powerful magnet with an advanced computer system and radio waves to produce accurate, detailed pictures of organs and tissues in order to diagnose a variety of medical conditions.
Nuclear Medicine is a branch of radiology that uses radioactive materials to determine if certain organs such as the heart, kidneys, liver, thyroid, brain and lungs are working properly. It is also used to examine the bones for cancer, infection or trauma.
Ultrasound (or "sonography") is a procedure that uses high-frequency sound waves to show what is inside your body.
The X-Ray is used in many different ways in medical diagnosis. An x-ray image is produced when a small amount of radiation passes through the body and strikes a digital plate placed on the other side of the body.
