Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) uses a strong magnetic field and radio frequency pulses to provide clear and detailed diagnostic images of internal body organs and tissues.
Computed Tomography (CT), formerly known as a CAT scan, uses X-ray and computer equipment to produce cross-sectional images of body structures, tissues, and organs.
X-ray is the oldest and most frequently used form of medical imaging. At SWDIC, we perform digital X-ray imaging, which is the “gold standard” of today’s medical imaging practices.
There are two main types of ultrasound therapy: thermal and mechanical. Both use sound waves generated through a transducer head to penetrate soft tissues.
A myelogram uses X-rays and a special dye called contrast material to make pictures of the bones and the fluid-filled space (subarachnoid space) between the bones in your spine.
An arthrogram is a test using X-rays to obtain a series of pictures of a joint after a contrast material (such as a dye, water, air, or a combination of these) has been injected into the joint.
An epidural steroid injection (ESI) is a combination of a corticosteroid with a local anesthetic pain relief medicine. Corticosteroids are strong anti-inflammatory medicines used to relieve pain.
