Computed Tomography (CT)
A.M.P. Imaging provides the highest quality Computed Tomography or (CT) services with a competent and caring staff. Our scheduling is simple and accommodating and results are available quickly.
Computed Tomography (CT) is a technology that acquires a series of two dimensional images of the body using beams of x-ray. These images allow the physician to diagnose many different types of disease. CT scans can be obtained with or without contrast agents. Contrast agents can be introduced to the body by either drinking a liquid or with an intravenous injection. This contrast can complement the non contrast scan by highlighting specific areas of the body making them more visible. This increased visibility helps the radiologist determine the presence and extent of disease or injury.
ACR Seal for CT. A.M.P. Imaging enjoys an affiliation with Crouse Radiology Associates (CRA). CRA is comprised of highly trained, board-certified radiologists who analyze and professionally interpret all the diagnostic CT scans produced at A.M.P. Imaging.
The Physicians at Associated Medical Professionals have the ability to perform ultrasound imaging at each one of our offices. An ultrasound uses reflected sound waves to reproduce a picture of the organs without the use of radiation. Typically this is performed by placing an ultrasound probe on the skin with ultrasound gel with the probe positioned in specific areas of the abdomen and back to better evaluate intrabdominal organs such as the kidneys, bladder, prostate, liver and associated organs of interest. Occasionally, specific organs are better evaluated with probes gently placed into specific sites. A transrectal ultrasound offers the ability to optimally visualize the prostate, seminal vesicles, bladder and surrounding organs. A transvaginal ultrasound allows the Physician to better assess the female reproductive organs such as the uterus and ovaries although the majority of imaging can be performed using surface probes.
