Types of Studies
MRI Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a painless, non-invasive imaging test that lets physicians look inside various parts of the body, such as the brain, spine, joints, and heart. The MRI creates a magnetic field that sends radio waves into the body and then measures the response with an advanced computer system. The MRI does not use any ionizing radiation during the study.
MRI is used to diagnose a variety of medical conditions. It is important that you follow all of the MRI Preparation Instructions if your doctors has ordered a MRI.
PET/CT Positron Emission Tomography (PET) is a non-invasive test that looks at biochemical and physiological changes in tissues related to metabolism. Computed Tomography (CT Scan) shows the structure of the anatomy. A PET/CT scan combines both a PET and a CT exam during a single outpatient exam and fuses the two types of images together. This highly sophisticated imaging technique gives detailed information to physicians about the presence or spread of disease and accurately identifies its precise location.
A PET/CT is primarily used in detecting, staging and monitoring cancer. This type of imaging can be used to detect if a lung nodule is cancerous. In many cases, the results of a PET scan may prevent an unnecessary biopsy or surgery. PET scans can also be used to image various types of heart and brain disorders, such as early diagnoses of dementia.
It is important that you follow all of the PET/CT Preparation Instructions if your doctors has ordered a PET/CT.
CT Computed Tomography (CT) scan is a painless, non-invasive imaging test that allows physicians to look inside various parts of the body. A CT scanner uses a special x-ray tube and detectors to produce detailed images. Unlike regular X-rays that look at only one part of the body, a CT scan looks at an entire area of the body, taking a “stack” of pictures, much like slices in a loaf of bread. Nearly any part of the body can be studied with a CT scan.
It is important that you follow all of the preparation instructions if your doctors has ordered a CT Scan.
Nuclear Medicine Nuclear medicine exams use very small amounts of radioactive agents to provide information about how various organs in the body are functioning. The substance is absorbed by different parts of the body and emits gamma rays that are detected by special types of cameras called gamma cameras and PET cameras. These cameras use powerful computers to form images that provide information about the area of the body being studied. The amount of radiation from most nuclear medicine exams is comparable to that of a regular x-ray exam.
Some of the most common nuclear medicine exams are used to scan the bones, gallbladder, heart, kidneys, and thyroid.
It is important that you follow all of the Nuclear Medicine Preparation Instructions if your doctors has ordered a Nuclear Medicine test.
Interventional Radiology (IR) Interventional Radiology is a medical sub-specialty of radiology that uses minimally-invasive image-guided procedures to diagnose and support treatment of diseases in nearly every organ system. IR procedures are performed using needles and narrow tubes called catheters. Some examples include port placement, PICC, and Kyphoplasty.
Many conditions that once required surgery can now be treated non-surgically by interventional radiologists. By minimizing the physical trauma to the patient, these procedures can reduce infection rates and recovery time, and decrease time spent in the surgical facility.
IR procedures are performed in an outpatient surgery center or hospital. The facility will provide you with instructions prior to your procedure date.
Kyphoplasty Kyphoplasty is an image-guided surgical procedure used to treat a fracture from osteoporosis. It is designed to stop the pain caused by a spinal fracture, to stabilize the spine, and to restore some or all of the lost body height due to the compression fracture.
During the procedure, the interventional radiologist places a narrow tube through a small incision in the back. The doctor uses fluoroscopy to guide the tube to the affected vertebrae. Then, the doctor inserts a balloon through the tube and into the affected vertebrae. The balloon is carefully inflated returning the vertebrae to normal position. The balloon is removed and the doctor uses a cement-like material to fill the cavity. It hardens quickly stabilizing the bone.
Some patients experience immediate relief after Kyphoplasty, while others report a reduction or elimination of pain within two days. Patients can return to their normal daily activities immediately. Strenuous exertion should be avoided until approved by your physician, approximately six weeks.
Ultrasound An ultrasound is a safe, painless, non-invasive imaging test that uses the reflection of sound waves to obtain images of various parts of the body. While most people think of ultrasound as a test that is used to look at a developing baby, it has many other uses in the diagnosis of disease.
It is important that you follow all of the Ultrasound Preparation Instructions if your doctors has ordered an Ultrasound.
Bone Densitometry Bone densitometry or DEXA uses very low amounts of x-ray to measure your bone density. It is a fast, safe and painless test that can assess your risk of developing osteoporosis.
Osteoporosis is the gradual thinning and weakening of the bones, which can lead to bone fractures. Over 28 million Americans, 80% of whom are women, have or are at risk of developing this condition. Unfortunately, most individuals have no symptoms until they suffer a painful bone fracture.
Body Fat and Muscle Composition The DEXA is the most accurate method for body composition analysis. This technology is the best way to quantify lean, fat, and bone mass; and, measure visceral fat, which correlates to risks of hormonal imbalances and disease.
X-ray exams are the mainstay of diagnostic imaging. They offer an accurate look inside the body to uncover anatomic problems. X-rays are commonly used on bones and joints, chests, spine and abdomen. InnerVision offers digital radiography, which provides better images, lessens the radiation dose, and provides a higher quality of care.
Fluoroscopy allows the radiologist to view the image in real time. It is most often used for joint injections and other related studies.
Because the test uses radiation, pregnant women should avoid x-rays. InnerVision can recommend an alternative test that will be safe for your growing baby.
It is important that you follow all of the X-ray Preparation Instructions if your doctors has ordered an X-ray.
Screening for Osteoporosis
A: There are many risk factors, including:
Advancing clinical research to benefit patients is critical in order to continue to bring more advanced, and better treatment strategies to patients. InnerVision participates in various clinical trials. Examples of some of the trials we have participated in include:
Participation in a clinical trial is always optional. You will never be enrolled without your full consent. Our staff may present you with an opportunity to participate if there is a clinical trial that we think may be right for you. For more information about Clinical Research at InnerVision, call 765.446.5150 to speak directly to the Director of Radiology.
Thank you for choosing InnerVision Advanced Medical Imaging Center. We look forward to caring for you. The following information is important so we can provide high quality care for all of our patients.
Walk-ins: All imaging studies require an appointment. Please call during regular business hours to schedule.
Cancellations: Please call at least 24 hours in advance to cancel an appointment.
Payment: We take the same insurance as other Unity partners. Some insurance plans require that you meet a deductible before they pay while others require a co-pay for visits. Please contact your insurance company to understand your financial responsibility. We collect co-pays at the time of service.
What to Bring: Please bring your insurance card(s), photo ID, the physician order, and any prior imaging that is relevant.
What Not to Bring: For most studies, you will be asked to remove jewelry and watches. Although we do provide lockers, it is best to leave valuables at home.
What to Expect: Each imaging study is different. Please refer to the Preparing for Your Imaging Study hyperlink to that section on site to better understand the study your doctor has prescribed.
Pregnant or Nursing: Some imaging studies can harm your unborn baby and/or newborn. Please inform our staff if you are pregnant, could be pregnant, or are nursing your baby.
For all imaging studies, please tell your doctor and InnerVision prior to your test if you are pregnant, think you may be pregnant, or are a nursing mother.
Some MRI exams use a special dye, called intravenous contrast. Patients receiving the dye will be asked to refrain from eating or drinking for several hours prior to the exam. If you are not receiving the dye with your exam, there is no special prep.
If you have had MRI dye in the past and have been told that you had a “reaction” to it (such as hives), please notify your doctor and InnerVision as soon as possible. MRI dye is NOT the same as CT scan dye or X-ray dye.
Due to the strong magnetic field in an MRI, please call InnerVision if you have had a pacemaker, aneurysm clip, nerve stimulator, indwelling medication pump (like insulin), or inner ear (cochlear) device inserted and it is still present, or if you have had any metal object placed inside your body during your lifetime. We also need to know if any metal has ever gotten into your eyes and not been removed by a physician. If you have had an implant, please bring your implant card with you so the technologist can assess if the implant is safe in the MRI environment.
What to Expect
