Digital Imaging Procedures at Guild Imaging Center of Norwood Hospital

Patient Care At Guild Imaging Center Guild Imaging Center of Norwood Hospital uses state of the art technology to provide referring physicians and patients with the highest quality and most accurate digital imaging results.

DIGITAL BREAST TOMOSYNTHESIS (3D MAMMOGRAPHY)

Early detection is the best protection against breast cancer. Guild Imaging Center of Norwood Hospital has always provided the latest in technological advances with mammography. We were the first in Norwood to offer digital mammography in 2007 and were first to offer digital tomosynthesis in Norwood in 2013. Digital breast tomosynthesis is the most recent improvement that helps better detect early breast cancer.  More...

DIGITAL RADIOGRAPHY (X-RAY)

Digital radiography is a form of routine X-ray imaging where digital X-ray sensors are used instead of traditional photographic film. Advantages include time efficiency (no chemical processing required) and the ability to digitally transfer and enhance images. Also, less radiation is used to produce an image.  More...

MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING (MRI)

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a painless exam with a wide range of applications in medical diagnosis. There is no radiation involved. An MRI exam may be used to find problems such as tumors, bleeding, injury, blood vessel diseases, or infection. Because MRI provides different information about structions in the body than can be seen with other tests, your physician may order an MRI to further investigate an abnormality found on an X-ray, ultrasound scan, or CT scan.  More...

BONE DENSITOMETRY (DXA)

Bone density scanning is an enhanced form of x-ray technology that is used to measure bone loss. A bone density scan is today's standard for measuring bone mineral density. Bone densitometry is most often performed on the lower spine and hips. It is used to diagnose osteoporosis, a condition that often affects women after menopause, but also effects men and rarely children. Osteoporosis involves a gradual loss of calcium, causing the bones to become thinner, more fragile and more likely to break.  More...

ULTRASOUND

Ultrasound exams use high frequency sound waves that are inaudible to the human ear. These wave are transmitted through the body using an instrument called a transducer, which transmits the information to a computer, that displays on a monitor. Ultrasound is used to create images of soft tissue structures, such as the gall bladder, liver, heart, kidneys, pancreas, bladder, thyroid, female reproductive organs and babies in the uterus. Ultrasound can also measure the flow of blood in the arteries to detect blockages. There are no harmful side effects and no discomfort during the test. Ultrasound does not use radiation. More...
