Main Content
X-RAYS
An X-Ray provides an image that can be used to evaluate bones, joints and degenerative lesions in the spine.
CAT SCAN (CT)
Used primarily when problems are suspected in the bones or when a patient can't obtain an MRI
MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING (MRI)
The most common test to evaluate the lumbar spine. Evaluates: *Vertebral bones * Discs * Joints * Nerves * Soft tissues
MYELOGRAM
Where dye is injected into the spinal column and then the area is flexed and x-rayed.
DISCOGRAPHY
Discography is a diagnostic procedure used to determine the level of the painful disc.
EMG
The EMG/Nerve Conduction Study is a useful test to study the nerves in the arms and legs.
BONE DENSITY
Bone density testing is fast, painless, and noninvasive. During a test, patients lie fully clothed on a padded treatment table while the machine scans one or more areas of bone. The entire test normally takes only minutes.
BONE SCAN
A Bone scan in Nuclear Medicine is a procedure which involves two steps:

The patient is asked to arrive 3 hours before their actual scan to receive an injection of a small amount of radioactive tracer that is "tagged" to a calcium like material. Usually the tracer is injected in a vein in the arm of the patient. In some instances, other sites of injection are used especially for those patients that had difficult veins to find. The "radiopharmaceutical" has no side effects and because of this, the patient can be released from the department for 3 hours to give the calcium time to circulate and be taken up by the bone. There are no dietary restrictions so the patient may eat before and after the injection.

After the three hours have elapsed, the patient returns to the Nuclear Medicine department for their scan. The patient is placed on a table a head to toe scan is performed by a "gamma camera".
