Radiology Diagnostics Q & A

What is radiology diagnostics?

Diagnostic radiology is a field of medicine where doctors use noninvasive imaging scans to gather diagnostic information. Radiology equipment can create highly detailed images that doctors use to diagnose various health concerns. 

The team at Precision Health Center offers a variety of the latest imaging modalities in the field of radiology diagnostics to aid in the diagnosis of a broad range of medical conditions.

Why do I need radiology diagnostics?

The team at Precision Health Center recommends diagnostic radiology for the following purposes:

  • To diagnose a health condition
  • To monitor your response to treatment
  • To screen for certain cancers or heart disease

If they recommend a radiology test for you, they’ll explain the rationale behind the decision. The practice provides a variety of these tests on-site or will refer you to the appropriate facility. 

For example, nuclear medicine, which includes bone scans and thyroid scans, is available at the Miami Lakes location.

What are the types of radiology diagnostic methods?

Examples of the type of diagnostic radiology technologies include:

  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
  • Computed tomography (CT) scan
  • Ultrasounds
  • X-ray
  • Digital mammography 
  • Breast ultrasound
  • Ultrasound-guided breast biopsy
  • Bone density test

Some imaging tests help pinpoint medical conditions in specific areas of your body. For example, Precision Health Center may recommend a type of real-time X-ray called fluoroscopy. 

After you ingest a special contrast-enhancing liquid, a fluoroscopy can safely create internal images of your:

  • Esophagus
  • Stomach
  • Small intestine

The team at Precision Health Center may suggest this test to help accurately diagnose acid reflux, blood in your stool, and other symptoms.

How do I prepare for my radiology exam?

The majority of radiology diagnostic tests require no special preparation. Most are easy and painless. Some, like an ultrasound, involve applying a painless handheld device called a transducer to your skin to create images.

Others require you to remain still for some time as an imaging machine scans your body. Some tests involve exposure to a low-grade amount of radiation that's nothing to worry about.

Rely on the team at Precision Health Center to let you know exactly how to prepare. Typically, you can expect your imaging exam to occur on-site for your convenience.
