PAVING THE WAY
At Mid-Michigan Radiology, we utilize multiple technologies in the field of radiology when locating and diagnosing conditions within the human body. All with different purposes and specifications for locating certain conditions and disease, we pride ourselves on being able to provide the most accurate depiction of any illnesses and thereby being able to provide the best care because of it.
Ultrasound is used in order to produce photos of the body’s internal structure, utilizing sound waves. After a gel is applied to the skin, sound waves from a probe are transmitted through the body, allowing the waves to bounce back from the organs. The response is recorded by a computer, creating an image to highlight any abnormalities or irregularities.
MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING (MRI)
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is used in a similar process to ultrasound, though instead of a probe being used to submit radio frequency pulses, a patient is instead placed in an MRI scanner, where a magnetic field is centered around the affected area.
X-rays are another helpful method for location and diagnosis of internal injuries. X-rays produce photos of affected bones or organs, allowing visibility to a plethora of potential injuries.
In a less invasive method of examination and diagnosis, interventional radiology is a notably less risky process, with the potential to see both veins and arteries. Conditions such as varicose veins, peripheral arterial disease, deep vein thrombosis, and pulmonary embolism, are among the many conditions that can be located through interventional radiology.
VARICOSE VEIN LASER
Laser vein treatment possesses many benefits as a remedy for varicose veins, especially when compared to other methods of treatment. Utilizing a high focused laser beam to close affected varicose veins, and in turn improving the symptoms.
