Imaging Scans

Diagnostic Imaging in Fremont, CA

Radiology is the branch of the medical field that involves utilizing technology to produce images for diagnosis of diseases and other conditions. Radiologists use advanced diagnostic medical imaging to obtain clear pictures of the inside of patients’ bodies for various diagnostic purposes. Today’s advanced technology and leading-edge techniques allow for unprecedented clarity and scope in these types of imaging processes.

There are various types of imaging technology, including but not limited to:

  • X-ray based methods include, in addition to conventional X-rays, mammography and computerized tomography (CT) scans
  • Molecular imaging, utilized in nuclear medicine, which give your doctor information about biological processes at the cellular and molecular levels
  • Ultrasound imaging, which uses sound waves to produce images of organs and soft tissue
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), which uses powerful magnetic fields instead of radiation, making it a safer option

Other types of tests include fluoroscopy and positron emission tomography (PET) imaging. Our internal medicine department at Washington Township Medical Foundation uses many advanced procedures for diagnosing conditions as well as in screening for potential illnesses and other diagnostic purposes. Imaging technology is used to find out why symptoms are occurring, to monitor changes in a condition, to assess whether or not a treatment is effective, and to screen for conditions such as colon cancer, breast cancer, or heart disease.
