Durham Regional Hospital provides the full spectrum of radiology exams and services. Find out more about the procedures we offer:
Bone Mineral Density Testing
Bone mineral density (BMD) testing uses small amounts of radiation to determine the bone density of the spine and hip.
Computed Tomography Scan
Computed tomography (CT) uses a combination of x-rays and computers to create cross-sectional images of the body.
An x-ray is a medical picture of what is occurring in the body. X-rays are a form of electromagnetic radiation that are emitted by a machine as photons.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) uses magnetic energy and radio waves to produce sectional and 3-D images.
A mammogram is an x-ray of the breast. Mammography is performed by a specially trained radiology technologist.
Nuclear scans can help detect diseased tissue before it can be seen on routine x-rays.
Ultrasound uses sound waves to obtain a medical image or picture of various organs and tissues in the body.
Vascular and Interventional Radiology
Vascular or interventional radiology use minimally invasive approaches without the need for large surgical incisions or general anesthesia.
