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.
Outpatient radiology services are conveniently available for day, evening and weekend appointments.
