When diagnosing or treating a particular issue, healthcare professionals often use medical imaging to visualize tissues, organs and body parts in detail.
These high-resolution images allow providers to pinpoint a patient’s trouble areas while giving therapists, doctors and related personnel the ability to create thorough treatment plans based on imaging results.
There are many types of medical imaging that a patient may choose to pursue.
Types of Medical Imaging
Medical imaging comes in all shapes and sizes. Optical imaging is a relatively new form of medical imaging that displays real-time information of tissues and organs at the cellular level, thereby revealing abnormalities and other functional issues. Radiological and nuclear imaging are more commonly known; radiological methods include CT scans, X-rays, and MRIs, while nuclear imaging encompasses SPECT and PET scans.
Practicing Intelligent Patient Care
When seeking medical imaging options, it is important to find a provider that practices intelligent patient care. In other words, the goal for any good provider is to create a patient-focused environment that uses resources effectively and efficiently and keeps patients off the waiting line. To do this, providers must utilize a central planning system that is intelligent by design, tailored for the individual and not the other way around.
The goal of patient care in medical imaging comes down to achieving fast and accurate results that can be used to build a management plan for the individual.
Using the Best in Medical Imaging Technology
Due to the nature of modern day medical imaging, it is necessary to have access to the best technology, while remaining flexible enough to upgrade, should technology advance or the office expand. Equipment should also be housed to maximize optimum efficiency, while remaining available to all patients in need of diagnostic scans.
