Radiological imaging helps doctors diagnose and treat a number of illnesses and injuries. Carolinas Medical Center (CMC) offers the latest testing equipment and highly-trained technicians and physicians who oversee the process.

This includes:

  • Diagnostic X-ray exams provide single images of a designated area.
  • CT Scan shows multiple pictures of an area or internal organ.
  • Ultrasound uses sound waves to map an internal abnormality.
  • MRI uses magnetic fields to produce images.
  • Nuclear Medicine uses radioactive medication to create images.
  • PET Imaging also uses radioactive medication for image production.
  • CMC's comprehensive Digital Imaging Network organizes, tracks, and stores patients' radiological images for easy access.
  • Interventional Radiology provides imaging guidance for targeted treatment of some diseases.
