3-D Mammography: Mammography is a noninvasive imaging procedure that uses a low-dose X-ray system to examine changes in breast tissue. Our 3-D mammography is the latest in mammogram technology. The benefits include better compression comfort, better imagining of dense breast tissue, earlier detection of breast cancer and reduced chance of needed additional images.
CT Scan: Computed Tomography (CT), also known as CAT scan, uses cross sectional images of the body tissues and organs. Our CT Systems provides a number of benefits for physicians and patients including low-dose radiation, clinical capabilities for angiographic, abdominal, colon and neurological imaging examinations, higher image quality with 64 reconstructed slices and increased mobility through the use of a tablet and remote-based operation.
Ultrasound: Ultrasound, also known as sonography, is a specialized imaging technique in healthcare. It employs sound waves of varying frequencies to generate images of structures within the human body. Ultrasound serves as a versatile diagnostic tool, aiding in the identification and evaluation of a wide range of medical conditions. It's commonly used to visualize organs, tissues, blood vessels, and even the growth of a fetus during pregnancy. Our ultrasound machine produces 3D and 4D imagining.
MRI: MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) studies are a non-invasive and radiation-free diagnostic tool that offers detailed insights into various medical conditions. An MRI is like a super-powered camera that captures detailed images of your insides. It's perfect for looking at soft tissues like muscles, ligaments, and organs.
Lung Cancer Screening: Butler County Health offers lung cancer screening exams through our CT scan. This low-dose CT Scan provides quality images using 90% less ionizing radiation than a standard CT Scan. The scan takes multiple pictures of your lungs in order to detect any abnormal areas in the lungs that may be cancer.
X-Ray: X-ray, also known as radiography, stands as the oldest and most prevalent form of medical imaging. As the radiation beam traverses through the body, certain regions will either absorb the radiation or allow it to pass through. X-rays are most commonly known for bone imaging but are also used to capture images of the chest, aiding in the identification of potential heart and lung diseases or conditions. Similarly, it finds utility in abdominal imaging, revealing anomalies like kidney stones or blockages within the bowel. At Butler County Health we both standing digital x-ray and mobile x-ray machines.
Nuclear Medicine: Nuclear medicine examinations are advanced imaging studies that involve the administration of a radiopharmaceutical, which is a safe and trace amount of a radioactive substance. These specialized medications are designed to be metabolized by various organs in the body, allowing us to gain insights into their functioning. Nuclear medicine is particularly useful in assessing the function of organs such as the heart, thyroid, kidneys, and bones. It is commonly used to diagnose and monitor various medical conditions, including cancer, heart disease, thyroid disorders, bone abnormalities, and more.
Bone Density: A bone density scan, also known as a DEXA scan, is a type of low-dose x-ray test that measures calcium and other minerals in the bones. The measurement helps show the strength and thickness (known as bone density or mass) of the bones. The results can help your doctor know how to treat or prevent bone loss and fractures. This test is typically performed as females approach menopause and, when the test is repeated sometime later, can help determine how quickly the patient is losing bone mass and density. These tests are quick, painless, noninvasive, and safe.
C-arm: A C-Arm machine is an advanced medical imaging device that works on the basic premise of the X-ray technology. C-Arm is called so, due to its C-shaped arm, which is used to connect the x-ray source on one end and the detector on the other. These devices are used to capture still radiographs or fluoroscopic images in real time so the surgeons can perform more accurate procedures with better outcomes for the patient. C-Arm machines are widely used in orthopedic, complicated surgical, pain management, and emergency procedures. It is a safe and non-invasive device.
Fluoroscopy: Fluoroscopy is a type of exam that uses continuous x-ray bursts to shows organs, tissues, or other internal structures moving in real time. Whereas standard x-rays are like still photographs, Fluoroscopy is like a video. It shows body systems in motion. These videos are then transmitted to a TV like monitor for viewing. Fluoroscopic examinations can be useful in evaluating and diagnosis problems with the cardiovascular, digestive, and reproductive systems.
