What is an MRI?
Magnetic resonance imaging (also known as MRI) utilizes a strong magnetic field, radio waves, and computer imaging to produce very detailed pictures of internal structures within the human body that are used to identify diseases, injuries, and other diagnoses. MRI technology is typically more detailed and more likely to accurately characterize a disease or injury than other, more outdated imaging methods. An MRI evaluates the body for a wide range of conditions, including tumors and diseases of the liver, heart, and bowel. The MRI approach is considered non-invasive and does not use radiation.

Digital radiography (digital X-ray) is a form of X-ray imaging where digital X-ray sensors are used instead of traditional photographic film. Advantages include increased efficiency by eliminating the need for chemical processing and the ability to digitally transfer and enhance images.
Unlike film-based mammography, digital mammography uses computer-based electronic conductors to display a picture of the interior of the breast for the clearest, most accurate images, to lead to a correct diagnosis. Our radiologists review the images and discuss the results with you.
Diagnostic ultrasound, also called sonography or diagnostic medical sonography, is an imaging method that uses sound waves to produce images of structures within your body. The images can provide valuable information for diagnosing and directing treatment for a variety of diseases and conditions.
What is a bone density scan? A bone density scan, also known as a DEXA scan, is a type of low-dose x-ray test that measures calcium and other minerals in your bones. The measurement helps show the strength and thickness (known as bone density or mass) of your bones. Most people’s bones become thinner as they get older

No one ever expects to be involved in a car accident, so the experience can be shocking and traumatic. Moreover, even a slight fender bender can cause damage and micro-injuries to the body that may not appear for days or sometimes weeks later. For this reason, it’s important to get checked out by your doctor after a car accident. If she or he feels it is necessary, then you may be referred to a diagnostic imaging specialist. And, if you want to ensure that you receive the best care in the Vero Beach, Florida, area, then visit Gateway Radiology.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) uses a magnetic field, radiofrequency pulses, and a computer to produce detailed pictures of the body. Doctors use Prostate MRI to evaluate the extent of prostate cancer and determine whether it has spread. They may also use it to help diagnose infection, conditions you were born with, or an enlarged prostate. Some exams may use an endorectal coil, a thin wire covered with a latex balloon. The doctor inserts the coil a short distance into the rectum. Prostate MRI does not use radiation. It provides images that are clearer and more detailed than other imaging methods.
A low-dose CT scan is a special kind of X-ray that takes multiple pictures as you lie on a table that slides in and out of the machine. A computer then combines these images into a detailed picture of your lungs. A study on early detection of lung cancer found that the low-dose cancer screening test can reduce mortality for those at high risk. If you’re a current or former smoker over the age of 50, you could meet the high-risk eligibility criteria.
MRI Reports are important in workers’ compensation. The reason being that many of the individuals in the workers’ compensation system rely on these reports in lieu of the actual MRI study. This includes the adjusters, the attorneys, and the judges. Also, it can include medical practitioners and evaluators who are either not trained or interested in reviewing the actual study.
