Company Description

MRI – Magnetic Resonance Imaging

MRI exams are performed using a powerful 1.5 Tesla (high-field) magnet and radio waves to produce detailed images of the anatomy. The large open-bore design of our MRI lets us accommodate large and claustrophobic patients while obtaining superior image quality. Before an MRI exam can be done, we must ensure that it is safe for the patient by asking a series of screening questions. You will need to let the technologist know if you have any metal in your body such as piercings, earrings, pacemakers, etc. that could interfere with the exam.
You will be asked to lay on a flat moveable table that is then guided into the MRI machine. During your scan you will always be able to communicate with the technologist.
You will hear a thumping or knocking sound during the procedure but will not feel anything. We will provide you with ear plugs or headphones so you can listen to music during your exam.
Some MRI procedures require a contrast agent to be injected into your veins. This is done to differentiate the appearance of certain tissues or blood vessels.
At Mountain West we can even do MRI breast imaging.

CT – COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY

CT scans, also known as CAT scans, obtain multiple cross-sectional images of the body by using special x-rays and computer enhancement to create an image many times more sensitive than a simple x-ray.
A CT scan is quick and painless. To complete a scan, the patient lies flat on a movable table that is guided into the center of the CT scanner. The table will move through the scanner as images of the patient’s body are captured.
Some contrast agents are administered as a drink and others are injected intravenously to enhance the pathology and highlight specific parts of the body.

ULTRASOUND

Ultrasound, also known as Sonography, is a safe and painless radiologic imaging study. Ultrasound uses high frequency sound waves, without dangerous radiation, to generate images of the internal structures of the body. The reflected sound wave echoes are recorded and displayed as a real-time visual image.
Because ultrasound images are captured in real-time, they can show internal movement allowing the radiologist to see such things as blood flow and fetal movement.
During the ultrasound exam you will be laying on a comfortable table. The technologist will use a transducer and glide it over the skin in the area of interest. Gel is placed on the transducer and/or the skin to make sure there is no air between it and your skin.

GENDER CHECK
A gender check is a fun exam for those expectant parents who want to know if they are having a boy or a girl before the baby is born. Suggested for 20 weeks or further along for best results.

3D/4D
Modern technology allows expectant parents to see their newborn prior to birth. The mother needs to be well hydrated and at least 28 weeks along to get the best results in the exam. You are then given a CD so that you can copy any or all of the pictures and share them as you wish.

X-RAY

X-ray is an excellent way for a radiologist to view bones, the lungs and certain soft tissues. X-ray is most commonly used to assess broken bones, playing a key role in orthopedic imaging for surgery and sports-related injuries, as well as many other diagnostic purposes.
At Mountain West, x-rays are done on a walk-in basis and no appointment is necessary.

DEXA

A DEXA exam is used to check for osteoporosis. Our machine can also do body composition analysis for those interested in their body fat ratio.
