Bone density scanning, also called dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA or DEXA) or bone densitometry, is an enhanced form of x-ray technology that is used to measure bone loss.
The University of Maryland Breast Center offers convenience, comfort and peace of mind for women seeking breast care.
Mammography is a non-invasive radiological examination of the breast using a special imaging device.
A CT scan is a quick and simple diagnostic tool that physicians use to see inside the body.
Fluoroscopy is a non-invasive exam used to visualize your gastrointestinal tract in motion. Fluoroscopy uses a continuous x-ray beam to create a sequence of images that are projected onto a fluorescent screen, or television-like monitor.
An x-ray (radiograph) is a painless medical test that helps physicians diagnose and treat medical conditions. Radiology involves exposing a part of the body to a small dose of ionizing radiation to produce pictures of the inside of the body.
The Community Radiology Section is comprised of a number of radiologists that are experts in general radiology and can be found at various private practice ventures.
A MRI is a non-invasive diagnostic tool that uses a strong magnetic field and radiofrequency waves to provide detailed pictures of internal organs and tissues.
The Musculoskeletal Imaging section provides expert diagnosis of all orthopaedic and rheumatology disorders, including trauma, arthritis, and tumors of bones and soft tissues.
The Neuroradiology Division diagnoses and treats head, neck and spine disease. An array of advanced diagnostic and minimally invasive surgical procedures are offered by our team of specialists.
The Division of Nuclear Medicine specializes in diagnostic imaging of dynamic aspects of physiology and pathology using radioactive tracer agents.
The Division of Pediatric Radiology specializes in diagnostic imaging procedures for pediatric patients. Board certified pediatric radiologists work closely with other pediatric specialists to provide comprehensive care for children. Our specialists are dedicated to optimizing diagnosis with the latest techniques to reduce radiation dose.
PET/CT imaging systems gives doctors highly defined, 3-D images of form and function inside a patient's body. These detailed images provide doctors with critical information used in treating conditions such as cancer and heart disease.
The Thoracic Radiology Section offers comprehensive chest evaluation with plain films, CT, MRI, needle biopsies and drainages, provided by three fellowship-trained chest radiologists.
