Services provided at Southern Arizona Radiology Associates
The radiologists at Southern Arizona Radiology Associates offer the following radiology services to patients in and around the communities of Sierra Vista and Tucson, AZ:
- Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) – Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a diagnostic procedure that uses a magnetic field and radio waves to capture detailed images of the internal tissues and organs. This process is painless, non-invasive, and is performed without radiation.
- Computed Tomography (CT) – is a diagnostic imaging test that is used to create detailed images of internal organs, bones, soft tissue and blood vessels. The cross-sectional images generated during a CT scan can be reformatted in multiple planes, and can even generate three-dimensional images which can be viewed on a computer monitor, printed on film or transferred to electronic media. The scan is painless and non invasive.
- Angiography (arteriograms) – Angiography, otherwise known as arteriography, is a diagnostic imaging technique used to visualize the inside of blood vessels with a particular interest in the body’s arteries, veins, heart chambers, and organs.
- X-ray imaging (radiography) – X-ray imaging or radiography is the most common imaging technique used in radiology. A section of the body is exposed to a minimal quantity of x-ray radiation to make a radiograph. The x-rays pass through the body and strike a film to form a still image. X-rays are safe and done in a way that minimizes radiation exposure.
- Ultrasound imaging – Ultrasound imaging uses high–frequency sound waves to create images of structures within the body. The high–frequency sound waves are transmitted from a small handheld wand placed immediately above the area to be imaged. The sound waves reflect off internal structures, enabling the computer to generate a real-time image. This type of imaging is used for diagnostics.
- Mammography for Breast Imaging – A digital mammography exam, medically known as a mammogram, is a specific x-ray image used to detect and diagnose certain breast diseases. Three new advances in mammography include digital screening mammography, computer-aided detection, and breast tomosynthesis.
- DEXA scan ( for measuring bone mineral density (BMD) – DEXA stands for Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiometry. The DEXA scan is the preferred scanning technique for measuring a patient’s bone mineral density, otherwise referred to as their BMD. It is a crucial measurement in the diagnosis of osteoporosis. A DEXA scanner emits one low-energy and one high-energy x-ray beam. The thickness of the bone can be measured by calculating the difference in the number of x-rays that pass through the bone for each beam.
