Diagnostic Imaging



Diagnostic Imaging


The fully-digital diagnostic imaging equipment at TRIA provides patients and doctors with immediate access to the location, nature and scope of a patient’s injury. Technology we have in place includes digital MRIs, C-Arms and X-rays. TRIA also has a musculoskeletal radiologist and neuroradiologist on staff, who are experts in interpreting reports generated by the technology.

MRI

We feature the latest digital imaging equipment from GE, which is a forerunner in the MRI arena. This includes high-definition MRI scanners that provide high resolution and allows doctors to easily diagnose even the most challenging cases. TRIA’s two short-bore imagers have shorter scanning times and enable most claustrophobic patients to complete their exams comfortably.

C-Arm

C-Arms take fluoroscopic images of the body from virtually any conceivable angle, from any side or position. Patients need not move from where they are – the C-Arm allows the patient to remain in one position while the image is taken.

Digital X-Ray

Digital X-ray is used within the clinics to facilitate immediate diagnosis of bone disorders during a patient’s visit. Rather than waiting for films to be developed, digital X-rays are transmitted immediately to be viewed by doctors without a waiting period. Digital X-rays provide excellent resolution, are better for the environment and provide immediate feedback to doctors.

Ultrasound

Ultrasound is utilized for a wide variety of indications:

  • Tendon evaluation including the rotator cuff, achilles, posterior tibial, distal biceps, and peroneal tendons.
  • Dynamic evaluation of subluxing or snapping tendons including the extensor carpi ulnaris and peroneal tendons. Dynamic ultrasound has also been used in the evaluation of the medial collateral ligament at the elbow.
  • Evaluation of foreign bodies or fluid collections.
  • Ultrasound guidance has been used extensively for symptomatic aspiration and injection of ganglion and bakers cysts, as well as tendon sheath and bursal injections. Ultrasound guidance is also being used for performing autologous blood injections of various tendons in the upper and lower extremities.
