Imaging Services

Catalina Radiology performs thousands of screening, diagnostic, and interventional procedures annually. The goal is to provide every patient with timely access to the most sophisticated medical imaging technology in a compassionate setting and to quickly deliver accurate electronic medical reports to referring physicians.

Computed Tomography (CT)

A CT scan or computed tomography scan makes use of computer-processed combinations of many X-ray measurements, allowing the doctor to see inside the patient without cutting.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

MRI scanners use strong magnetic fields, magnetic field gradients, and radio waves to generate images of the organs in the body. MRI does not involve X-rays or the use of ionizing radiation, which distinguishes it from CT or CAT scans and PET scans.

Ultrasound

Ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to look at organs and structures inside the body.

Nuclear Medicine

Nuclear medicine is a specialized area of radiology that uses very small amounts of radioactive materials, or radiopharmaceuticals, to examine organ function and structure.

Fluoroscopy

Fluoroscopy is a type of medical imaging that shows a continuous X-ray image on a monitor, much like an X-ray movie.

Mammography

Mammography uses low-energy X-rays for diagnosis, screening and early detection of breast cancer.

Bone density scan (DEXA)

A dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) scan, also called a bone density scan, is a common technique used to measure bone density.

Women’s imaging

Several types of imaging services are available to cater to the unique health needs of female patients.
