GSVSs diagnostic imaging capabilities at our on-site Imaging Center provide the needed link between physical medicine and the "technology" of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Computerized Tomography (CT) scanning for state-of-the-art diagnostics in a referral practice setting. These capabilities afford comprehensive radiographic examination techniques, ultrasonography (abdominal and thoracic), fluoroscopy, and CT/MRI scanning. These modalities allow non-invasive evaluation for a variety of disorders including cancer, neurologic abnormalities and many others. As always GSVS's own staff of boarded specialists is available to provide immediate consultations at the time of diagnostic testing. GSVS also offers review of x-rays and other imaging results taken by the practitioner. These can be sent to the GSVS staff either by mail or teleradiography.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) utilizes a magnetic field to differentiate between areas of fluid and soft tissue. An MRI is especially valuable in evaluating the brain, spinal cord, and intervertebral discs, as well as joint cartilage, tendons and ligaments.
