Radiology encompasses imaging tests that evaluate and support a diagnosis. Radiology offers important information to family medicine patients who are struggling with illness or injury. X-rays, for example, can detect broken bones or abnormal fluid in the lungs; MRIs can help a doctor see tissue damage.
Your provider at Stanton Family Clinic may recommend radiology testing to find out the cause of your symptoms, monitor how well your body is doing on a specific treatment plan, or screen for illnesses like colon or breast cancer.
Radiology imaging exams include:
X-rays use radiation to see bones, abdominal obstructions, or fluid in the lungs. Mammograms are a special type of X-ray that looks at breast tissue.
CT scans produce computer-processed images using multiple X-ray angles. It gives your doctor a better view of your organs, bones, and other tissues than a simple X-ray.
Ultrasound uses sound waves to see your organs and internal tissues. You may know of ultrasounds used to see an unborn baby, but the diagnostic imaging can detect swelling, infection, tumors, and heart damage.
