Procedures and Services
Franciscan Diagnostic Imaging Services staff performs and interprets dozens of specific imaging exams to help diagnose and treat health care problems.
Some imaging modalities visualize skeletal structures (X-ray, bone density scan or DXA) while some can visualize soft tissue structures (CT, MRI). Others measure blood flow (ultrasound) and still others can evaluate organ function (nuclear imaging) or metabolic performance (PET-CT).
Some imaging can provide answers that once required more invasive diagnostics. For example, scanning the heart arteries using coronary CT angiography can identify heart blockages in certain low-risk patients, ruling out the need for cardiac catheterization.
