Raritan Bay Medical Center’s Diagnostic Radiology department offers a full complement of outpatient services aimed at detecting, staging and sometimes treating a broad range of diseases. These include:
Computed Tomography/ Positron Emission Tomography (CT/PET) Scanning, Old Bridge – Combining the capabilities of two scanning devices, this cutting edge equipment is used to identify cancer as well as early-stage Alzheimer’s disease. The technology measures the metabolic activity of cancer cells while pinpointing their location in the body, offering a complete and precise diagnosis.
Computed Tomography (CT) Scanning – Multi-detector scanning provides vivid, three dimensional imaging for diagnosing numerous medical conditions. The technology is especially helpful for angiography, or vascular studies, allowing many patients to avoid more invasive diagnostic procedures.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) – This premier diagnostic tool provides detailed, high-resolution images of the head, chest, extremities and other areas.
Mammography/Stereotactic Core Needle Biopsy – Combined with Raritan Bay Medical Center’s “double read” protocol, whereby two radiologists independently review test results. These technologies ensure thorough, accurate diagnoses of breast cancer and breast abnormalities.
DEXA Scanner, Old Bridge – Bone densitometry measures bone mass to assist in the detection of osteoporosis.
X-rays – Digital, low-radiation X-ray equipment provides routine imaging of the head, neck, chest, spine, pelvis, extremities and abdomen.
Ultrasound – Advanced ultrasound utilizes sound waves to create visualizations of the chest, breast, abdomen, pelvis and blood vessels.
Angiography, Perth Amboy – This interventional modality reveals blockages and malformations of the vascular system.
Vertabroplasty – Representing a breakthrough treatment for osteoporosis, this minimally invasive procedure alleviates pain from compression spinal fractures.
