The best way to prevent disease is through early detection of health problems, managing risk factors and appropriate treatment. Anniston Radiology Group offers some of today’s most advanced outpatient imaging technologies available, including:

MRI Exams — This safe and painless procedure uses a magnetic field and radiowaves to produce highly detailed images of areas within the body, including the brain and spine. In addition, cartilage and ligaments of many joints, such as the knee, ankle, shoulder, elbow and jaw, can be seen with clarity. With 3-D magnetic resonance angiography (MRA), noninvasive imaging of blood vessels in the neck, chest, abdomen and legs can be performed.

CAT Scans — Also known as CT scans, CAT scans use a special X-ray camera to produce highly detailed images of the chest, abdomen, pelvis, brain and spine. We use an advanced “multi-slice” scanner that allows us to see smaller structures and pinpoint problems with greater accuracy.

Ultrasound — Our high-resolution ultrasound exam is a safe and fast way to screen for certain problems in many different organs, including the liver, gallbladder, kidneys, thyroid gland and more. And Anniston Radiology Group is one of just a handful of practices that offer Doppler ultrasound, a revolutionary procedure that allows us to look for blockages or aneurysms in blood vessels.

Mammography — This is a high-resolution X-ray of the breast that can help us see small breast cancers often before they can be felt by you or your doctor.

Bone Densitometry — DEXA scans are a safe and painless way of checking your bone density and bone mineral content. This is essential to detecting osteoporosis early enough to get appropriate treatment.

Nuclear Medicine — This provides very detailed imaging of certain organs, allowing us to detect much smaller (and newer) cancers and other health problems. The thyroid gland, gallbladder, liver, kidneys, skeletal system and more can be assessed.

Interventional Radiology — Our staff includes Dr. Robert S. Bain, Jr., who is fellowship-trained and subspecialty-certified in interventional radiology. That means he can perform interventional studies with the highest level of expertise. They include outpatient catheter placement under fluoroscopy, dilation of clogged arteries without the need for surgery, biopsy of small lesions and more.

Fluoroscopy — This lets us see real-time movement within your body as it happens. It is used to help examine the upper and lower gastrointestinal tract and as a guide for certain interventional procedures.
