Our specialists and subspecialists in Sierra Vista and Tucson, Arizona, have advanced training and experience in diagnosing injuries, diseases, and conditions using radiology techniques. “Radiology” refers to medical imaging. Southern Arizona Radiology Associates recommends specific types of imaging procedures to patients based on their needs. These tests and exams provide our radiologists with insights into what is going on inside a patient’s body. So, our specialists’ depth of knowledge in diagnostics is complemented by a sophisticated range of imaging technologies.
This combination of expertise and equipment is critical to the health and well-being of the individuals we serve; accurate and precise diagnoses inform the development of treatments that effectively resolve underlying conditions. It is one thing to have the skill and investments in technology to safely administer such tests, but having experienced in-house radiology professionals to completely and accurately analyze and interpret those images is quite another.
We at Southern Arizona Radiology Associates emphasize that our clinics are well-rounded in radiological services. Radiology is all that we do. And, when you do something often enough, you tend to be really, really good at it. This provides peace of mind to the patients we serve (and their families) that the proper tests will be administered safely and thoroughly, supporting an accurate diagnosis.
Also, our specialists have additional training and clinical experience in more than 13 subspecialty areas, ranging from neuroradiology (brain, nervous system, head, neck, and spine) to oncologic imaging (cancer diagnosis and staging). So, please keep in mind that the following tests represent just a sample of the tools and imaging services offered at our clinics:
Mammography or mammograms may be used to detect breast cancers early when they are easiest to treat. Scans that use an enhanced X-ray technology known as “dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry” or “DEXA” are available as the standard in measuring bone density.
Southern Arizona Radiology Associates has invested in the latest, safest, clinically-proven innovations related to the technologies mentioned above and others not on this list. A nod to our leading-edge investments, interventional radiology presents an entire subset of diagnostics. These minimally-invasive techniques revolve around methods to contain risks and improve treatment outcomes, for instance, imaging-guided biopsies of tumors.
Due to our vast subspecialty expertise and technologies, we precisely diagnose, and inform and manage treatment plans for a diverse range of patients spanning an array of conditions and needs. We encourage you to contact us about your specific needs and schedule an appointment with one of our skilled radiologists. Call our Sierra Vista office at (520) 335-6849 for care that you can trust.
