X-RAY technology lets doctors see straight through human tissue to examine broken bones, cavities and swallowed objects. Modified X-ray procedures can be used to examine softer tissue, such as the lungs, blood vessels or the intestines. The X-ray camera uses the same film technology as an ordinary camera, but X-ray light sets off the chemical reaction instead of visible light.
ERA’s body imaging specialists utilize modern imaging equipment and powerful computer systems to identify disease formations at an earlier stage through the use of body imaging.
Our radiologists work closely with physicians and/or specialists to provide interpretations based on body image scans. Our radiologist’s ability to view the body’s internal structures and system functions enables them to detect and diagnose disease and illnesses earlier in a non-invasive manner, leading to treatment and intervention in the timeliest manner...
What is CT Angiography?
Angiography is a minimally invasive medical test that helps physicians diagnose and treat medical conditions. Angiography uses one of three imaging technologies and, in most cases, a contrast material injection is needed to produce pictures of blood vessels in the body.
Angiography is performed using:
x-rays with catheters
computed tomography (CT)
magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
CT angiography uses a CT scanner to produce detailed images of both blood vessels and tissues in various parts of the body. An iodine-rich contrast...
