Diagnosing your condition

The latest diagnostic equipment helps your doctor determine the best treatment for your condition.


Often the first test ordered by a doctor, an x-ray can visualize many different parts of the body, allowing for more accurate testing and diagnosis. X-rays use a small amount of radiation to view the chest, abdomen, spine, skull, arms or legs.

CT scan

A CT (computed tomography) scan is a modern imaging tool that combines X-rays with computer technology to produce a more detailed, cross-sectional image of your body. A CT scan lets your doctor see the size, shape and position of structures that are deep inside your body.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

MRI is another modern diagnostic imaging technique that produces cross-sectional images of your body. Unlike CT scans, MRI works without radiation. Instead, it uses magnetic fields and a sophisticated computer to take high-resolution pictures of your bones and soft tissues. An MRI may help diagnose conditions such as torn knee ligaments, cartilage or rotator cuffs; herniated disks; hip and pelvic problems; and other problems.
