Venography is an x-ray examination that uses an injection of contrast material to show how blood flows through your veins. Your doctor may use it to find blood clots, identify a vein for use in a bypass procedure or dialysis access, or to assess varicose veins before surgery.
An arteriogram is an X-ray of the blood vessels. It’s used to look for changes in the blood vessels, such as: Ballooning of a blood vessel (aneurysm) Narrowing of a blood vessel (stenosis)
Outpatient care refers to any healthcare consultation, procedure, treatment, or other service that is administered without an overnight stay in a hospital or medical facility.
A retrograde urethrogram is a procedure allowing the urethra to be x-rayed using a contrast dye. The dye is watched on the x-rays as it passes back through the urethra and into the bladder. Urethrograms are done by a radiologist with a radiographer and sometimes a nurse.
A micturating cystourethrogram is a procedure allowing the urethra to be x-rayed using contrast dye passing from the bladder through the urethra. The bladder is first filled with x-ray contrast dye by inserting a urinary catheter into the bladder through the urethra.
Doppler echocardiography is a procedure that uses Doppler ultrasonography to examine the heart. An echocardiogram uses high frequency sound waves to create an image of the heart while the use of Doppler technology allows determination of the speed and direction of blood flow by utilizing the Doppler effect.
HSG, is an X-ray test to outline the internal shape of the uterus and show whether the fallopian tubes are blocked. In HSG, a thin tube is threaded through the vagina and cervix.
(IVU), also referred to as intravenous pyelography (IVP) or excretory urography (EU), is a radiographic study of the renal parenchyma, pelvicalyceal system, ureters and the urinary bladder.
A barium X-ray is a radiographic (X-ray) examination of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. Barium X-rays (also called upper and lower GI series) are used to diagnose abnormalities of the GI tract, such as tumors, ulcers and other inflammatory conditions, polyps, hernias, and strictures.
A pelvic ultrasound is a noninvasive diagnostic exam that produces images that are used to assess organs and structures within the female pelvis. A pelvic ultrasound allows quick visualization of the female pelvic organs and structures including the uterus, cervix, vagina and ovaries.
Abdominal ultrasound is a type of imaging test. It is used to look at organs in the abdomen, including the liver, gallbladder, spleen, pancreas, and kidneys. The blood vessels that lead to some of these organs, such as the inferior vena cava and aorta, can also be examined with ultrasound
Obstetric ultrasound uses sound waves to produce pictures of a baby (embryo or fetus) within a pregnant woman, as well as the mother’s uterus and ovaries. It does not use ionizing radiation, has no known harmful effects, and is the preferred method for monitoring pregnant women and their unborn babies.
A testicular ultrasound is a diagnostic test that obtains images of the testicles and the surrounding tissues in your scrotum.
Soft Tissue scan
A soft tissue ultrasound scan serves to image a mass felt in the superfical tissue of the patient. It is a quick, non-invasive way of determining the characteristics of the mass in order to come to a diagnosis.
A breast scan is an imaging test to look at your breasts. It is used when a mammogram has not given your healthcare provider enough information.
