Bone Densitometry

DEXA bone densitometry is an enhanced form of X-ray technology used to assess bone density and loss.

Computed Tomography (CT)

Computerized Tomography – also called CT, Ct Scan and CAT scan – is an X-ray technique that produces more detailed images of internal organs than conventional X-ray exams, which produce two-dimensional images, CT uses a sensing unit, which rotates around your body, and a large computer to create cross-sectional images of the inside of your body. ACMC offers complete CT services.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

Magnetic Resonance Imaging uses a magnetic field, radio waves and a computer to generate detailed images of the body. ACMC offers complete MRI services including breast MRI for persons at high risk for breast cancer.

Mammography

A mammogram is a low-dose X-ray imaging procedure used to detect irregularities in the breast and surrounding tissue. Images are taken of the compressed breast to discover any abnormalities or suspicious masses that may not be found with manual exams.

Nuclear Medicine

Nuclear Medicine is a unique specialty that documents organ function and structure. Using radioactive isotopes, Nuclear Medicine is a safe and painless way to prevent, diagnose, and treat disease.

Ultrasound

We offer complete sonography services including vascular, abdominal and obstetric studies. Ultrasound images are captured in real-time and show movement of internal tissues and organs, and enable physicians to see blood flow and heart valve functions.

X-Ray

X-ray imaging uses small doses of radiation known as electromagnetic waves to create interior pictures of the body. This source of imaging is used most frequently for broken bones, fractures and joint abnormalities.

Cardiology Imaging Services

Echocardiography

Echocardiogram images help identify abnormalities in the heart muscle and valves, and find any fluid that may surround the heart. Some heart problems – particularly those involving the coronary arteries that feed the heart muscle – occur only during exerciseACMC offers adult and pediatric cardiac echocardiography.

Nuclear Stress Testing

During Nuclear Stress Testing, a radioactive tracer is injected into the blood stream to determine if the heart muscle is getting enough blood supply. This test provides information on the function of the heart, specifically the function of the coronary arteries. A nuclear medicine camera takes images of the heart before exercise and then immediately after exercising on the treadmill.

Stress Echocardiogram

During a stress echocardiogram, images are taken before and immediately after exercising on a treadmill. By comparing images, the physician can see changes in the way the heart muscles are working. These images can be used to find blocked coronary arteries.
