Making Accurate Diagnoses
At the core of clinical decision-making is diagnostic radiology. Diagnostic radiology tests are extremely powerful tools essential for diagnosing many different conditions. From broken bones and blood clots to heart conditions and more, the radiology specialists at West County Radiological Group use non-invasive and minimally invasive imaging techniques to identify and monitor injury and illness. After receiving test results, providers can determine the right treatment plan for the patient.
Using the Latest Technology for Diagnosing Problems
There are several different diagnostic radiology techniques available today, and doing the right study increases diagnostic accuracy. Some of the state-of-the-art technology we use includes:
- X-ray (radiography)
- Computed tomography (CT) scans
- Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans
- Nuclear medicine scans
Also, we currently utilize AI software to improve image quality and will eventually use AI-powered tools for radiologist workflow and effciency.
