X-ray, also known as radiography, is one of the oldest and fastest ways to view and evaluate the skull, spine, joints, extremities, and some internal organs. X-ray is useful in diagnosing bone injury and disease.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
MRI is one of the most powerful tools available to radiologists today. MRI has become the preferred procedure for evaluating and diagnosing a large number of potential problems in many different parts of the body. In general, MRI creates images that show differences between healthy and unhealthy tissue. Doctors can use MRI to examine the brain, spine, joints (e.g., knee, shoulder, wrist, and ankle), abdomen, pelvic region, breast, blood vessels, heart and other body parts. MRI’s use powerful magnetic fields and radio waves instead of x-rays to create detailed images of the body. It is a non-invasive imaging procedure that detects diseases and conditions in their earliest stages, including many common types of cancer. In addition to enabling an early diagnosis, MRI scanning makes it possible to assess the degree to which a disease has progressed and to help make judgments about effective therapy.
Mountain View Hospital’s Open MRI allows you to relax, reclining in a comfortable chair, with only the injured extremity in the MRI. The system provides high quality images to your physician enabling confident diagnosis. Because the MRI is so comfortable, many patients ask if we can perform all scans with it. Our unit can perform lower extremity joint imagining (feet, ankles and knees) and upper extremity scans (fingers, hands, wrists, and elbows).
