PET/CT: Computerized scans of the body are extremely useful in diagnosing many different conditions. The most innovative body scan technology available, PET scans allow doctors to look beyond internal structures and soft tissue to map the body’s metabolic processes. As a diagnostic tool, PET scans are currently being used to detect abnormalities in the brain that lead to Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Disease as well as other types of dementia and seizure disorders.
CT: Also called a CAT scan, this diagnostic tool gives doctors internal images far superior to x-rays. A CT visually slices the body for a clear image of the structures and tissues This amazing technology is key in cancer diagnoses and detecting other types of diseases that attack deep inside the body.
MRI: Similar to an x-ray, an MRI allows doctors to find deformities in internal structures. MRI is not limited to hard structures like bones, though. An MRI also shows soft tissue like ligaments and tendons around joints.
X-Ray: This is still the best diagnostic tool for visualizing broken bones and other defects to internal structures. Recent improvements in x-ray technology reduce radiation exposure for patients and technicians alike. Innovative Radiology in Central Pennsylvania

Positron Emission Tomography (PET) uses radiation to detect, localize and quantify cancer inside the human body. PET scans are the most reliable, effective method for the evaluation of metastatic disease and help oncologists with the initial staging of cancers as well as to evaluate disease response for various treatment plans. When oncologists and patients need accurate, fast answers there is no more powerful tool than a PET scan.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a test that produces very clear pictures, or images, of the human body without the use of x-rays. MRI uses a large magnet, radio waves and a computer to produce these images.
X-ray is most commonly known for determining whether or not a bone is fractured, however, you may also be sent for an x-ray to check for various other conditions such as pneumonia, arthritis, bowel obstruction or scoliosis. Depending on your condition or complaint an x-ray may be the first step in the imaging process where as sometimes it will be followed with a CT scan or MRI.
