At Tristar, we have access to the latest medical technology and are equipped to run a wide range of diagnostic tests on site. We offer x-rays, MRIs, Ultrasounds, PET scans, and CT and CTA scans. Get a clearer image of your health with these services.
X-ray images are digital images of the internal composition of the body produced by passing electromagnetic waves through the body. Different types of tissues absorb more radiation than others, which is why we are able to see the bones so clearly with x-rays and other tissues less clearly.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging uses powerful magnets and radio waves without ionizing radiation to create detailed, cross section images of the bones, blood vessels, and soft tissues within the body.
Ultrasounds use sound waves and no ionizing radiation to visualize the structures in the body.
Positron emission tomography scans involve using a radioactive tracer consumed by the patient and a special camera to show where that tracer collects in the body tissues. Concentrations of the tracer indicate high chemical activity, and often disease. These scans can reveal a lot about the body’s structure and function in just one imaging session.
Computerized Tomography and CT angiography scans take cross-sectional x-rays from multiple angles to produce a picture of the inside of the body more detailed than that of a classic x-ray.
