Looking toward health
Fairview offers excellent X-ray and other imaging services to take pictures of the inside of your body. You can be sure that Fairview's leading technologies and skills bring the best possible care in testing and treatment.
Images produced using MRI technology show detailed internal structures and functions of the body. MRI does not use radiation, but uses a powerful magnetic field to generate images. It is especially useful in brain, musculoskeletal, cardiovascular and cancer imaging.
Positron Emission Tomography (PET)
This imaging test can help show how your tissues and organs are functioning. It is most often used for people who have cancer, heart disease or brain disorders. A PET uses a small amount of radioactive material that enters your body by injection, inhaling or swallowing.
Computer Tomography (CT)
Computerized tomography images combine a series of X-ray views to quickly examine people who may have internal injuries from trauma. It can also look at blockages or other problems inside your blood vessels.
Using high-frequency sound waves, an ultrasound examination produces precise images of structures within your body. Ultrasound is useful for evaluating a fetus, looking at abdominal organs, thyroid, heart, blood vessels, and other portions of the body.
This imaging technique uses small amounts of radioactive materials that are injected in a vein, swallowed or inhaled as a gas. These materials work with a computer to produce special detailed pictures of both the structure and function of organs and tissues.
X-rays are a fast, painless test that produces images showing the inside of your body, especially bones and joints. Bone fractures, arthritis, some types of cancer, heart conditions, blocked blood vessels and digestive tract problems are just some of the uses of X-rays at Fairview.
