Computer-Aided Detection (CAD)

Having an “Ultrasound” or “Sonogram” test is best known for giving expectant parents that first glimpse of their unborn child, and we’re great at it! But Ultrasound can be used for much more, including detecting vascular disease, and evaluating abdominal and pelvic pain.
Bone Density Studies
We offer the most accurate evaluation of bone density possible, and it’s painless too! Knowing your risk for osteoporosis is the first step in preventing or controlling it.
