Open and Closed MRI
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) uses magnetic fields and radio waves to produce accurate anatomical images that, when aided by a computer, can be viewed from any different angles.
Advanced digital technology makes real-time consultation possible between radiologists at Middlesex Hospital and the Shoreline Medical Center, 24 hours a day.
Also called a sonogram, ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to examine internal organs in the abdomen, producing real-time images of soft tissue and capturing movement of internal organs.
An X-ray based technology that can assess an organ or body in real time. Typical fluoroscopies include gastrointestinal or barium GI studies.
High Speed Multi-Slice CT Scan ("CAT" Scan)
CT scans use a computer to enhance X-ray type images. Typical CT scanners create image slices one at a time; our machine creates two images at the same time. Images are then assembled into a very detailed, three-dimensional view.
An x-ray scan that uses a computer to produce cross-sectional images of the abdomen.
An x-ray scan that utilizes a computer to produce cross-sectional images of the head.
Mammography is the use of low-dose x-rays (radiation) to make a picture of the tissue inside the breast. The resulting picture is called a mammogram. Mammography is used to screen for and diagnose breast cancer by detecting tumors or other changes in breast tissue. A mammogram can identify abnormalities before a lump can be felt, and therefore aids in early detection of cancer, which improves chances of successful treatment.
A bone density scan, along with a patient's medical history, is a useful aid in evaluating the probability of a fracture or osteoporosis and whether any preventative treatment is needed.
Endoscopy is a medical procedure during which a physician examines the interior of a hollow vessel or organ using a special camera-like device called an endoscope. Middlesex Hospital's Shoreline Medical Center has a dedicated endocopy suite equipped to perform a variety of procedures. One example of a commonly performed procedure is a colonoscopy.
The electroencephalogram (EEG) is a non-invasive test used to evaluate brain function or disorders, or to determine brain death.
The measurement and recording of electrical activity generated in muscle in response to a nervous stimulation. Electromyography (EMG) is often performed at the same time as nerve conduction studies, which aid in the diagnosis of peripheral nerve disorders.
Middlesex Hospital's Shoreline Medical Center offers infusion therapy services for antibiotics, blood products, autologous donations, injections and other special procedures. And best of all, it's all in a safe, convenient location.
