Advanced Imaging & Diagnostic Procedures

Our New York orthopedic service and treatment physicians will use comprehensive imaging and diagnostic techniques, like CAT or bone scans, to evaluate your orthopedic condition. This helps your doctor recommend an effective course of treatment that gets you back to the activities you love.

Advanced diagnostic procedures at UHS include:

  • Arthrogram – Uses contrast dye to examine a joint using X-ray, computed tomography (CT), fluoroscopy or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
  • Bone density test – Measures mineral content and density to evaluate bone strength
  • Bone scan – Uses a tiny amount of injected radioactive substance to produce images of your bones with a scanner
  • Computed tomography (CT/CAT) scan – Combines multiple X-ray images into one 3-D image for greater detail and clarity
  • Electromyogram (EMG) – Measures muscle and nerve function
  • Fluoroscopy – Uses a continuous X-ray beam to capture moving images of your body
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) – Creates detailed images using a magnetic field and radio waves
  • Physical examination
  • X-ray – Produces images using small, safe beams of electromagnetic radiation
