Imaging Services Available
64 Slice CT Scan
The 64 slice CT scanner is Knapp’s latest diagnostic tool. This
state-of-the-art machine covers more anatomy, with greater accuracy, than
before. The superior image clarity offers a faster, more accurate diagnosis
for earlier detection of abnormal changes in the body. This technology
allows for expanded services such as precise cardiac imaging, virtual
colonoscopies, and updated treatments for cancer patients.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
An MRI is a noninvasive, painless procedure in which radio waves and powerful
magnets linked to a computer, can create detailed pictures of internal
organs and tissues. These pictures can help diagnose many conditions in
all parts of the body.
Also known as a cardiac ultrasound, echocardiography employs real-time
imaging for a quick and accurate assessment of the overall health of the heart.
Knapp’s advanced digital mammography unit allows for a more accurate
diagnosis in half the time of film-based exams. With higher resolution
images and computer-aided detection (CAD), the need for additional pictures
Stereotactic Breast Core Biopsies
This procedure is a safe and minimally invasive way to obtain tiny samples
from an abnormal breast mass for examination by a pathologist. A sample
of suspect breast tissue is precisely located with a computer-guided imaging
system and removed with a needle. The procedure is completed on an outpatient
basis with a minimum of discomfort and recovery time.
DEXA (Osteoporosis Screening)
This enhanced form of x-ray technology is a quick and painless way to
measure bone loss, estimate risk of future fractures and accurately diagnose
Our diagnostic x-ray department utilizes digital technology for routine
x-ray procedures of the spine, abdomen, chest, pelvis and extremities.
This x-ray exam of the arteries and veins can diagnose blockages, narrowing
in a blood vessel and other blood vessel problems. In many cases, our
radiologist can treat a blocked vessel or place a stent without the need
3-D Ultrasound/Vascular Imaging
Ultrasound imaging is a painless procedure that uses high frequency sound
waves to produce real-time images of tissues, organs, blood vessels and
blood flow. Common uses include obstetric, vascular, and abdominal.
Nuclear Medicine/Stress Testing
This test involves the injection of a radioactive ‘tracer’
that allows for the evaluation of organ function and bone abnormalities.
This noninvasive procedure uses mild, painless radiofrequency waves to
locally heat tumors to kill cancer cells for liver, lung, bone, and kidney
cancer. It is also an adjunct therapy for patients on chemotherapy.
