Refer to Inova Imaging Services for more details on imaging procedures at Inova facilities and to schedule an imaging exam

  • 16-slice CT scanning
    Uses X-rays to take pictures of cross-sections, or "slices," of your body
  • 64-slice CT scanning
    The most advanced CT scanning technology available, with exceptionally clear and detailed images produced in seconds
  • DEXA
    A type of X-ray imaging used to measure bone density, most frequently to diagnose osteoporosis
  • Interventional radiology 
    A subspecialty of radiology featuring minimally invasive procedures performed with image guidance
  • Mammography 
    A low-dose X-ray system to examine the breasts and create film images. Digital mammography uses a process, similar to digital cameras, to create digital images of the breast tissue that are easy to view, work with and share.
  • MRI
    An unparalleled view of inside the body using a large magnet, radio waves and computer technology
  • PET/CT
    The most advanced medical imaging technique available today which allows for earlier, more accurate detection of disease and changes in cell function.
  • Ultrasound
    A very safe, effective imaging technology that uses high frequency sound waves to produce images of internal organs, a fetus or breast tissues. Breast images allow us to identify breast cysts, solid nodules or lymph nodes.
  • X-ray
    Still the most commonly used type of imaging to examine different parts of the body and to aid a physician in diagnosis of medical conditions
  • Pap test
    A screening test to identify cell changes or abnormalities
  • Blood test
  • Biopsy
    A small tissue sample obtained to determine the likelihood of whether your cancer will grow slowly or quickly, whether it might recur, or how it might respond to different treatments
