Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) uses magnets rather than x-rays to scan your body, allowing physicians to look inside your body without pain, surgery or radiation to make an early and accurate diagnosis of various illnesses and injuries. MRI technology sends radio-waves into your body and measures the reflective response with a computer to create a series of detailed images of your internal organs and tissues. Another type of MRI exam called Magnetic Resonance Angiography (MRA) examines the blood vessels.
Our 1.5 Tesla magnet significantly reduces scan time while providing superior image quality. This technology, combined with our experienced staff and comfortable, peaceful environment reduces any of the anxiety that may be associated with this exam.
CT stands for computed tomography. The CT scan can reveal anatomic details of internal organs that cannot be seen in conventional X-rays. The X-ray tube spins rapidly around the patient and the X-rays strike numerous detectors after passing through the body.
A computer processes the information to show a cross-section of soft tissue structures of the body including organs, muscles and blood vessels. The innovative design of Professional Imaging's CT provides optimal patient comfort while providing outstanding diagnostic information. Features of the scanner include true-to-detail images, lower and isolated radiation doses, and accurate diagnoses of head, spine, organ and tissue disorders and the ability to accommodate patients up to 350 lbs.
X-ray, or radiography, is the oldest and most common form of medical imaging.
An X-ray machine produces a controlled beam of radiation, which is used to create an image of the inside of your body. This beam is directed at the area being examined. Often multiple images are taken from different angles so a more complete view of the area is available.
Sometimes an X-ray exam includes contrast. For a contrast study, you will receive a drug called a contrast agent, which will highlight or contrast parts of the body so they show more clearly on the X-ray image.
The Portal Gravity System places an axial load on the spine during routine imaging procedures. This simulates the upright position providing a more realistic simulation and provides additional information not seen by standard MRI procedure.
Professional Imaging is the only place in Missouri performing DTI scans to help with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). Diffusion Tensor Imaging is an MRI-based neuroimaging technique which makes it possible to estimate the location, orientation, and anisotropy of the brain's white matter tracts.
We're working with Brain Mapping Solutions on DTI Prism Study
