AOC is very proud to have the latest technology when it comes to scanners and x-ray processes. The comfort of our patients is key, and the following equipment holds efficient and effective processes to comfortably assess patients.
DEXA is an acronym for Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiometry. This x-ray procedure determines the strength of your bones by measuring the density. The DEXA scanner at AOC is the most complete bone assessment tool ever devised.
A Trabecular Bone Score (TBS) can be used in the treatment of osteoporosis to add to bone mineral density. The Trabecular Bone Score is a an analytical tool that performs novel grey-level texture measurements on lumbar spine dual X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) images.
This Phillips magnet produces scans that are equal to images of any closed MRI currently used in the area hospitals.
Quick imaging is key to a patient’s diagnosis and treatment. We use digital technology to make information from exams available to our physicians, staff, and patients fast.
We have an on-site radiologist, Dr. Stephen Ashe, to ensure our patients have unsurpassed comfort and care. The equipment is top-notch, but our physicians and staff make the AOC experience informative and minimally intrusive.
