Tests & Screenings
Identifying the source of your condition is one of the first steps in proper treatment. At Resolute Health Hospital, we offer a wide range of tests and screenings.
This type of test is an X-ray exam used to visualize the inside of blood vessels and organs within the body. Angiograms are often used to look for signs of blockages or narrowing of the blood vessels that may be interfering with normal blood flow in the body.
This test uses a large donut-shaped machine equipped with an X-ray tub that rotates around your body to take detailed images of your internal organs. Your doctor may recommend a CT scan to detect cancer or heart disease, internal injuries or for diagnosing muscle or bone disorders.
MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING (MRI)
MRI uses a magnetic field and radio waves to provide radiologists with cross-sectional images of the head and body. It’s very useful in producing images of the brain, neck, spinal cord and soft tissues for diagnosing central nervous system disorders.
This imaging test uses a low dose of X-rays to screen breast tissue. It’s used for breast disease screening and early breast cancer diagnosis.
NUCLEAR MEDICINE SCAN
Nuclear medicine scans give doctors a detailed image that evaluates organ function and helps to locate and diagnose disease, infection, fracture or tumors. Types of nuclear medicine scans include cardiac, thyroid, lung, bone, renal and liver scans.
If you’ve been diagnosed with cancer, nuclear medicine can also be used to identify the sentinel nodes — the first lymph nodes to which cancer is most likely to spread.
This exam uses sound waves to create images based on the patterns returned to a hand-held device. While most commonly associated with pregnancy, ultrasound has additional uses including diagnosing infection and cancer, and biopsies and treatments of tumors.
One of the oldest imaging tests, the X-ray uses radiation to create images of bones, teeth and internal organs. It’s often used to assess bone problems or joint infections.
