Tests, Treatments & Procedures

  • CT Scanner/Spiral CT
    Computed tomography (CT or CAT scan) is a noninvasive diagnostic imaging procedure that uses a combination of X-rays and computer technology to produce horizontal, or axial, images (often called slices) of the body. A CT scan shows detailed images of any part of the body, including the bones, muscles, fat, organs, and blood vessels. CT scans are more detailed than standard X-rays.
  • Interventional Radiology
    Interventional radiologists are involved in the treatment of the patient, as well as the diagnosis of disease. They treat an ever-widening range of conditions inside the body from outside the body by inserting various small instruments or tools, such as catheters or wires, with the use of various X-ray and imaging techniques (for example, CT scanners, MRI scanners, ultrasound scanners). Interventional radiology offers an alternative to the surgical treatment of many conditions and can eliminate the need for hospitalization, in some cases. Interventional radiologists perform a vast variety of procedures, including the following:
    • Angiography
    • Angioplasty
    • Embolization
    • Gastrostomy tubes
    • Intravascular ultrasound
    • Stent placement
    • Foreign body extraction
    • Needle biopsy
    • Blood clot filters
    • Injection of clot-lysing agents
    • Catheters insertions
    • Cancer treatment
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
    MRI is a very advanced medical imaging technique which produces very clear pictures or images of the human body. It provides an excellent way to diagnose diseases of the brain, spine, skeleton, chest, abdomen, pelvis, and blood vessels.
  • Ultrasound
    Ultrasound is a safe, non-invasive imaging technique that uses sound waves to produce images of the body's organs. Jackson North Medical Center offers diagnostic ultrasounds including abdominal, gynecologic, vascular, thyroid, testicular and musculoskeletal.
