Imaging with digital x-rays involves exposing a part of the body to a small dose of ionizing radiation to produce pictures of the inside of the body.
A CT scan (also known as a CAT scan) is a medical test that uses minimal radiation to acquire cross-sectional images of the body. Tissues such as bone, lung, organs, and blood vessels can be seen very clearly on a CT scan.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a noninvasive medical test that uses a powerful magnetic field, and radio frequency waves to produce detailed pictures of the body. No radiation is used.
Nuclear Medicine uses radioactive material to access the function of organs or systems within the body.
Ultrasound imaging, also called sonography, uses high-frequency sound waves to obtain images of the inside of the body. Ultrasound exams do not use radiation.
Your physician will receive a report with the results of your exam usually within 48 hours of the procedure. If you need to reschedule an exam, please call (865) 446-7900 Monday-Friday 7 a.m. – 5 p.m.
