3T MRI – Magnetic Resonance Imaging
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a safe, fast, and painless way for doctors to get a clear look at your internal anatomy.
In fact, a scan may be the only way your doctor can get diagnostic information without surgery. The technology produces sharp computerized images of internal body tissues that can’t be viewed through x-rays. Doctors can request an MRI image for your brain, your knee, your spine, or just about any part of your body that needs diagnosis.

64-slice CT Scan
Computed Tomography, widely known as a CAT scan, is medically referred to as simply CT.
CT is a relatively quick procedure that uses x-ray beams to create computer-generated images of soft tissue structures, such as the liver, spleen and other internal organs, including air cavities (sinuses, lungs). It also has advantages in skeletal and neurological imaging. Its radiation doses to the human body are considered minimal due to the speed in which the x-rays deliver, as well as the increased number of detectors which help to minimize radiation dose as compared to less sophisticated CT scanners.

Digital X-Ray Imaging
An x-ray is a medical test that physicians use to diagnose and treat their patient’s medical conditions.
An x-ray is a painless and quick test for the patient to endure. It involves exposing the part of the body that is being examined to a small dose of ionizing radiation to produce pictures of the inside of the body.
X-ray is used to diagnose various conditions of the lungs including pneumonia, tumors and changes of heart failure. It also is used to diagnose fractures and other abnormalities of bones, joint conditions, and causes of abdominal pain.
Sand Lake Imaging is now offering the Genius 3D Mammography exam, a more accurate way to screen for breast cancer.
These digital mammography systems create clearer, more accurate images than an x-ray mammography.
Our top-of-the-line Hologic Selenia Dimensions Mammography systems allow for sharp, detailed images with superior resolution, reduced exposure, and less compression time. The fully automatic, self-adjusting, self-releasing tilt compression paddle conforms to the natural contour of the breast, making positioning easier and offering incomparable patient comfort.
Unlike other parts of the body, the breast is composed mainly of soft tissue. When breast tissue is x-rayed, it creates an image that looks something like a smoky haze, making it difficult to see tiny “spots,” called microcalcifications, and other subtle signs of early cancer.
With digital mammography, the radiologist reviews electronic images of the breast, using special high-resolution monitors. The physician can adjust the brightness, change contrast, and zoom in for close-ups of specific areas of interest. Being able to manipulate images is one of the main benefits of digital technology. Another convenience of digital mammography over film-based systems is it can greatly reduce the need for retakes due to over or under-exposure.
Because they are electronic, digital mammography images can be transmitted quickly across a network. Digital images can also be easily stored and copied without any loss of information, and transmitted in a more streamlined manner, eliminating dependence on only one set of “original” films. It is also more cost effective because there are no films to develop since the images are rendered digitally.

Ultrasound imaging, also called ultrasound scanning or sonography, involves exposing part of the body to high-frequency sound waves to produce pictures of the inside of the body.
Ultrasound exams do not use ionizing radiation (as used in x-rays). Because ultrasound images are captured in real-time, they show the structure and movement of the body’s internal organs as well as blood flowing through blood vessels.
Ultrasound imaging is a noninvasive medical test that helps physicians diagnose and treat medical conditions. Vascular ultrasound provides pictures of the body’s veins and arteries. Prenatal ultrasound provides pictures of a developing fetus. Because of its many uses, an ultrasound is a handy, noninvasive diagnostic tool for doctors to use.
