Why Are Diagnostic Imaging Services Important?
Diagnostic imaging services are valuable screening and assessment tools for physicians. They are important for the timely and appropriate management of many diseases and disorders in all areas of medicine, from orthopedics and oncology to neurology and women’s healthcare, and play a key role in reducing healthcare costs.
Diagnostic imaging utilizes a variety of non-invasive methods to look inside the body to help determine a disorder (such as an injury or illness) and causes of symptoms, and to confirm a diagnosis. It may be requested for a number of different reasons, from identifying a fracture to diagnosing cancer, and allows your doctor to identify, diagnose, treat, monitor, and rule out many different complications.

The dedicated medical team at Starling Diagnostics offers a wide range of radiology services. We utilize the most advanced diagnostic imaging equipment, such as digital X-ray, which can help to reduce healthcare costs by shortening examination times, reducing image storage costs, and the chance of recalls in the future. Advanced radiology equipment ensures consistently high-quality images, reducing the need for repeat imaging studies and unnecessary costs. It also improves overall patient satisfaction.
Our patient and physician’s portal allows easy access to imaging studies and results.

What Imaging Services Do We Offer?
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) uses a large magnetic field, radio waves, and a sophisticated computer system to create detailed images of the different organs, tissues, and structures inside the body. It can be used for almost any part of the body, including the brain, spine, bones, soft tissues of joints, and blood vessels.
A computed tomography (CT) scan uses multiple X-rays taken from different angles to create detailed, cross-sectional images of organs and tissues. The scan enables doctors to detect, diagnose, and pinpoint the source of pain, injury, or any abnormalities, such as internal injuries, spinal problems, osteoporosis, infections, and diseases.
X-ray is used to identify and monitor a wide range of diseases and injuries, such as bone fractures, infections, and some forms of cancer. It works by passing small, highly controlled amounts of radiation through the human body to create images on a photographic plate. Digital X-rays are more advanced, cost-effective, and efficient than conventional X-rays. They use special X-ray-sensitive plates to directly capture data and reduce ionization exposure. Information is instantly transferred to a computer system that produces the images.
A 3D mammogram uses multiple breast X-rays to generate a three-dimensional image of the breast. It provides clearer and more detailed images of the breast compared with traditional mammograms, and is particularly useful for detecting any abnormalities in dense breast tissue.
Ultrasound works by transmitting high-frequency sound waves into the body to provide a detailed look at internal organs and structures. It creates real-time video images of organs and tissues, and can also monitor fetal health and development during pregnancy. Ultrasound may be used to detect blocked arteries, diagnose vascular problems, locate tumors and growths, and identify problems in organs such as the liver, kidneys, gallbladder, pancreas, prostate, and testicles.
Bone Density Scans
Dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) bone density scans are used to detect osteoporosis and other bone-related problems. It is a simple scan that uses a very low dose of ionizing radiation to identify signs and create images of low bone mass.
