Diagnostic Tests

Diagnostic Tests

X-Ray of the SpineX-ray
X-rays use invisible electromagnetic energy beams to produce images of internal tissues, bones, and organs on film or digital media.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
This noninvasive medical imaging technique uses a powerful magnetic field to create a detailed three-dimensional view of the inside of the body.

Computed Tomography (CT) Scan
CT scans, sometimes called CAT scans, are specialized x-rays used to diagnose and treat certain medical conditions.

Electromyography (EMG)
This outpatient diagnostic test is used to evaluate the health of muscles and the nerves, called motor neurons, which control the muscles.

This outpatient procedure is a diagnostic examination of the spine.

This diagnostic procedure, also called discogram, is used to determine whether back pain is caused by one or more spinal discs.

Bone Density Scan
This scan is performed to measure the density of the patient's bones.
