Via Radiology

Via Radiology, Seattle Radiology, Diagnostic Imaging, Medical Imaging
Via Radiology, a Seattle radiology team of board-certified physicians and dedicated medical staff provide quality diagnostic imaging and image-guided therapy.
Bone Density Exam - Via Radiology, Seattle WA
Bone Density What is a bone density exam? The bone density examination is a method used to determine how much mineral is in a person's bones. This number can then be compared to a similar reference population to determine whether a patient has osteoporosis.
Seattle Mammography, Breast Imaging, Via Radiology
Breast Imaging When should I have a screening mammogram? We at the Seattle Breast Center, along with the American Cancer Society and the American College of Radiology , recommend annual screening mammography starting at age 40.
CT Scan Seattle, Computed Tomography, Via Radiology
Computed tomography, or CT, scanning is a popular and effective way of examining any part of the body to detect the presence or absence of disease. It is extremely useful in the evaluation of acute injuries to the head, chest, abdomen, spine and pelvis.
Fluoroscopy - Via Radiology, Seattle WA
Fluoroscopy is a radiological technique where a low dose of x-rays are combined with an image intensifier to create an image on a monitor which allows real time evaluation of several parts of the body.
Interventional Radiology - Via Radiology, Seattle WA
Patient Guide Interventional Radiology Spine & Joint Injection Information click here Interventional Radiology Interventional radiologists (IRs) use their expertise in reading X-rays, ultrasound and other medical images to guide small instruments such as catheters (tubes that measure just a few millimeters in diameter) through the blood vessels or other pathways to treat disease percutaneously (through the skin).
MRI Seattle, Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Via Radiology
MRI What is MRI? Magnetic resonance is a type of imaging system that utilizes radio waves and a strong magnetic field to generate images of the body. A powerful computer is used to create these images by controlling the interaction of radio waves within the magnetic field and displaying these interactions as a series of pictures or images.
Nuclear Medicine Seattle, Examinations, Via Radiology
Nuclear Medicine What is Nuclear Medicine? Nuclear medicine examinations evaluate both body anatomy and function. The images are produced by xray emissions from radioactive substances given to the patient, either intravenously or by mouth. Generally, radiation to the patient is similar to that resulting from standard x-ray examinations.
PET Scan Seattle, Positron Emission Tomography, Via Radiology
Positron emission tomography, also called a PET scan, is an examination that involves producing physiologic images based on the detection of radiation from the emission of positrons. Positrons are tiny particles emitted from a radioactive substance administered to the patient. The subsequent views of the human body developed by PET are used to evaluate a variety of diseases.
Screening Services - Via Radiology, Seattle WA
Via Radiology is a team of board certified, subspecialty trained physicians and dedicated staff committed to providing the highest quality of diagnostic imaging and image-guided therapy in the Puget Sound Region. Exams and services include Vertebroplasty, Laser Vein Ablation, Bone Density, Breast Imaging, CT, Fluoroscopy, Interventional, MRI, Nuclear Medicine, Ultrasound, X-ray.
Ultrasound Seattle, Diagnostic Imaging, Via Radiology
Ultrasound What is Ultrasound Imaging? Diagnostic medical ultrasound is a way to create images of anatomic areas for the purposes of measurement or diagnosis. It uses no radiation but instead transmits high frequency sound waves (2 to 12 MHz) into the body, and the returning echoes are processed by a computer into pictures which are interpreted by a radiologist.
X-Ray Seattle, Digital X Ray, Radiography, Via Radiology
X-ray What is an x-ray? The x-ray has been called one of the most significant advances in all of medical history. It is used in many different ways in medical diagnosis. An x-ray image, or radiograph, is produced when a small amount of x-ray radiation passes through the body and strikes a sheet of sensitive film placed on the other side of the body.
Uterine Fibroid Embolization - Via Radiology, Seattle WA
Uterine Fibroid Embolization What is Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE)? When very common non-cancerous growths called uterine fibroids develop in the muscle wall of the uterus, they can occur with and without symptoms. The fibroids are usually diagnosed during an internal gynecologic exam and confirmed using either ultrasound or an MRI exam.
Vertebroplasty - Via Radiology, Seattle WA
Vertebroplasty, an innovative non-surgical procedure for vertebral compression fractures, can help treat back pain safely and effectively.

CT Scans and How They Work

Do you ever wonder what it means when your physician tells you that you have to have a CT scan done? All the information you need to know about CT exams can be found here. From what to wear to a scan to what to expect is covered!

Ultrasound Seattle, Diagnostic Imaging, Via Radiology

Ultrasounds are a great way to look into the body without using any radiation. Ultrasounds instead transmit high frequency sound waves into the body. Learn more about how an ultrasound works and what to expect during your appointment!

Nuclear Medicine Seattle, Examinations, Via Radiology

Nuclear medicine gives doctors the ability to evaluate both body anatomy and function. During this process, a camera takes a picture of a patient after a radioactive substance is ingested into the body. Find out more about nuclear medicine and how it works here!

X-Ray Seattle, Digital X Ray, Radiography, Via Radiology

Digital x-rays give the x-ray technologist the ability to immediately tell if the image is acceptable and electronically manipulate the image for improved detail and accuracy of interpretation.
