San Antonio Texas Radiology CT MRI Mammography PET/CT

  • What is a 3D mammography? Mammography is the gold standard in breast cancer detection. 3D mammography is a cutting-edge technique that creates “slices” of images of the breast tissue to allow medical providers to view three-dimensional images.

  • Why is 3D mammography needed? For women of a certain age, doctors recommend an annual screening mammogram. Women also undergo mammograms if their doctors detect abnormal changes of the breasts that may indicate cancer. Men may sometimes be referred for 3D mammography, as it is possible for them to develop breast cancer. With digital 3D mammography, providers can detect abnormalities that may have escaped detection with 2D mammograms.

  • Which equipment is used? Our imaging facility was the first to offer digital mammography in San Antonio. We use the Hologic Selenia Dimensions 3D mammography system, which is a sophisticated system that incorporates the latest tomographic imaging capabilities. With this equipment, our patients can also undergo stereotactic biopsies.

MRI

  • What is an MRI? Magnetic resonance imaging is a noninvasive and usually painless medical imaging test that guides physicians in making a diagnosis and planning a patient’s treatment. At Concord Imaging, our digital technology makes it possible for physicians to clearly view precise images on a computer.

  • Why is an MRI needed? Physicians refer patients to Concord Imaging for MRIs for a variety of reasons. These medical images can reveal conditions and diseases of the brain, pelvic region, chest, abdomen, blood vessels, lymph nodes, and heart. An MRI can help physicians diagnose inflammatory bowel diseases (IBDs), tumors, vascular disease, and bone abnormalities. Patients may also undergo an MRI after the diagnosis to assess how well their treatment is working.

  • Which equipment is used? Patients lie on a moveable table, which slides into the center of a large, circular magnet. The technologist goes into an adjacent room that looks out into the exam room. A sound system allows the patient and technologist to communicate during the exam. The MRI equipment captures images through the use of radio waves and a powerful magnetic field.

  • What does an MRI reveal? MRI scans can depict the bones, organs, and soft tissues throughout the body. It may reveal evidence of diseases or structural abnormalities. In some cases, patients receive an injection of contrast material prior to the exam, which allows for clearer, more precise images.

CT Scan

  • What is a CT scan? A computed tomography scan is a noninvasive medical test that uses special X-ray technology to produce cross-sectional images of the internal structures of the body. Sometimes, contrast dye is used for this exam. Although CT scans use X-ray technology, they produce images that are far more detailed and precise than standard X-rays.

  • Why is a CT scan needed? CT scans are often the test of choice for quickly diagnosing the cause of a patient’s pain, particularly when symptoms are localized to the chest, abdomen, or pelvic region. CT scans may be used to look for internal trauma, digestive disorders, skeletal problems, and vascular diseases and conditions, such as pulmonary embolism. CT scans are frequently used to detect multiple forms of cancer. The detailed images allow doctors to clearly detect, measure, and evaluate tumors.

  • Which equipment is used? Patients are positioned on a moveable table that slides into a short tunnel. The gantry is a circular frame that rotates around the patient. The X-ray tube and X-ray detectors are mounted to the gantry so that they revolve around the body. Each time the equipment makes a full revolution around the patient, it produces another “slice” or image of the internal structures.

  • What does a CT scan reveal? By allowing doctors to examine the internal structures slice by slice, CT scans reveal highly detailed cross-sectional images of the organs, bones, blood vessels, and soft tissues.

PET Scan

  • What is a PET scan? Positron emission tomography scans use radiotracers to evaluate cellular changes in the body. Radiotracers are small amounts of radioactive materials. By revealing information about minute metabolic changes, PET scans allow physicians to detect diseases quite early in their onset.

  • Why is a PET scan needed? Most often, PET scans are used to detect cancer and Alzheimer’s disease. Active tumors absorb radiotracers more quickly than other tissues. This lets physicians detect small lesions and tumors. A PET scan can determine whether cancer has spread, how well cancer treatments are working, and whether cancer has recurred. PET scans also show changes in the brain’s chemistry, which allows for the early diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease. At Concord Imaging, we’re pleased to offer Amyvid, a recently approved agent that allows for the detection of beta amyloid plaque. After this injection, patients can undergo a PET scan to look for plaque deposits, which can indicate early Alzheimer’s disease.

  • Which equipment is used? The PET scanner is a large machine with a round hole in the center, through which a moveable exam table is inserted. Detectors are arranged around this hole. These detectors record the energy emitted by the radiotracer. Although a PET scan may be performed alone, it’s more effective when combined with a CT scan. A PET/CT scan can be performed simultaneously. Regarding cancer patients, the PET scan can detect the presence of tumors and the CT scan can precisely pinpoint their location.

  • What does a PET scan reveal? Unlike most medical scans, which reveal fixed or static images, a PET scan is a measurement of bodily functions. With PET scans, doctors can evaluate oxygen use, blood flow, and glucose metabolism to assess how well the body is functioning.

Ultrasound

  • What is an ultrasound? An ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to generate images of the body. The ultrasound images are viewable in real time, which means that they reveal internal movements, including blood flow.

  • Why is an ultrasound needed? Ultrasound imaging is commonly associated with prenatal testing. Since it does not use X-rays, it’s safe for pregnant women. Ultrasound is also used for guiding needle biopsies, diagnosing the causes of pain, and checking for blood clots.

  • Which equipment is used? Concord Imaging is pleased to feature the GE Ultramark 9 system. This ultrasound machine produces clear, easily interpreted images for maximum accuracy. The ultrasound machine generates images from information obtained via the transducer. The transducer is a hand-held device that makes contact with the skin.

Nuclear Medicine

  • What is nuclear medicine? Nuclear medicine involves introducing small amounts of radioactive substances to the body, usually via injection or by mouth. The radiotracer circulates in the body and emits gamma rays. Medical imaging equipment detects these gamma rays and uses this information to create images.

  • Why is nuclear medicine needed? Nuclear medicine reveals the structure and function of tissues and systems in the body. These tests can be used to diagnose cardiovascular conditions, evaluate the lungs for respiratory problems, and check the bones for fractures or tumors. Nuclear medicine scans are also used to assess the brain, bowel, and spine.

Bone Densitometry

  • What is a bone densitometry scan? Bone densitometry or dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) uses X-ray technology to generate images of the bones. Specifically, it measures a patient’s bone mineral density (BMD). This allows physicians to evaluate the strength of the bones and the patient’s risk of fractures.

  • What is bone densitometry used for? Bone density scans are most often recommended for patients at risk of osteoporosis, which is a condition in which reduced bone mass causes the bones to become more fragile and susceptible to fractures. A radiologist may scan the whole body or just the lower spine and hips.
