Diagnosing Your Pain

If you’re having trouble bending, lifting, standing or even just sitting still, don’t ignore your pain. Our orthopedic specialists are ready to help you find out what’s wrong and how to make it right.

Advanced imaging technology – from head to toe

The Radiology and Diagnostic Imaging Department at Mary Greeley Medical Center offers advanced diagnostic and pathologic equipment and techniques to diagnose orthopedic problems from head to toe.

Just a few of the high-tech tools we use to detect and diagnose orthopedic-related conditions include:

Computed Tomography (CT)

Computed tomography, also known as CT or CAT, directs multiple narrow beams of X-rays (radiation) around a specific body site that creates a multidimensional view of a patient’s body. Learn more about CT scans

Diagnostic X-ray

This general diagnostic X-ray uses radiation to produce pictures of the body’s bones. Learn more about X-rays

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a radiation-free, usually noninvasive way to produce high-quality pictures inside the body from multiple planes. MRI picks up the body’s radiofrequency signals and converts them into three-dimensional images. Learn more about MRIs


Ultrasound is a medical imaging technique that uses sound waves and their echoes. An advantage of ultrasound is that it visualizes internal structures without using radiation, and it can guide procedures such as biopsies. Learn more about ultrasounds
