Quality Care, Tailored to Your Needs
When you’re concerned about your health, every detail matters – and every day counts. At American Health Imaging, our promise to you is to deliver clear, accurate, and reliable results on a schedule that meets your needs and time constraints.
A Safe, Comfortable Patient Experience
We invest in the latest imaging equipment because we put your comfort, safety and goals first. This advanced technology also means we can provide your doctor with clearer images, faster, allowing for sooner diagnosis and treatment.
Our highly trained radiologists, technologists and patient care coordinators will walk you through your entire imaging appointment. We are also currently taking extra steps to ensure your safety and comfort:
- You will check in on your phone from your car when you arrive for your appointment. A patient care coordinator will bring any necessary paperwork out to you.
- Our staff wears gloves and masks at all times. We will also use disinfectant wipes to open doors for and hand things to you, including any paperwork and insurance cards.
- All of our facilities are spacious enough to adhere to social distancing standards.
- The patient care coordinator will bring you inside when it is time for your appointment. A sanitized changing area, where you can store your items in a locker and change, if necessary, will be available to you.
Affordable, Accessible, and Worry-Free
Finally, given the financial concerns that often accompany health complications, we pledge to make your imaging as affordable as possible. Our exams cost up to 75% less than equivalent tests at hospitals, we accept most insurance plans, and we offer competitive self-pay rates.
At American Health Imaging, we know you have a choice in imaging providers. We hope to see you soon.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a safe, pain-free imaging technique that combines magnets and radio waves to create detailed images of your body’s structures. While x-rays are typically used to view bones and joints, MRI is perfectly suited for organs, muscles and other soft tissues.
What to Expect During Your MRI
Typically lasting 30 to 60 minutes, MRI exams require very little preparation. Your technologist will simply ask you to remove jewelry, belts and other metal objects, and they will help you lie comfortably on a cushioned table. That table will then slide into the circular MRI machine, where you’ll remain for the duration of the exam. As the technologist collects images, they’ll be able to see, hear and speak to you, alleviating any concerns you may have.
One of the safest, most tried-and-true imaging technologies, ultrasound uses sound waves to create images called sonograms. Ultrasound is widely used for observing fetal development in pregnant women, but it may also be used to detect problems in the liver, kidneys and other abdominal organs.
Because ultrasound doesn’t rely on radiation, it’s perfectly safe for both you and your baby. It’s also pain-free and noninvasive, and it doesn’t require the use of contrast dyes or other solutions or injections.
What to Expect During Your Ultrasound Exam
Quick, convenient and easy, ultrasound exams typically last 20 to 40 minutes. Your technologist will conduct the exam with a transducer, a small handheld device that looks like a wand. They’ll apply the transducer to the body part being examined, along with a gel that helps sound waves pass through your skin. Depending upon the nature of your exam, you may be able to see the images during your exam, on a screen connected to the ultrasound device.
Digital radiography is a type of x-ray imaging in which image sensors are used in place of traditional film – much like the difference between film and digital cameras. The images themselves are comparable to traditional x-rays, but digital radiography saves time by avoiding chemical film processing. Just as importantly, digital x-rays require less radiation than traditional x-rays. Like other x-ray techniques, digital radiography is safe, painless and noninvasive.
What to Expect During Your Digital X-Ray
Taking a digital x-ray is much like taking a traditional x-ray, and if you’ve ever broken a bone, you’re likely familiar with the process. A technologist will help you onto an exam table or chair, depending upon the positions required for the image. A plastic plate called a film cassette will be placed directly under or behind the area of the body to be imaged, and you’ll be asked to hold still for a few minutes while the x-ray is being taken. This process will be repeated for additional views, and the whole procedure will likely take 15 minutes or less.
