Advanced medical imaging
Lower out-of-pocket costs compared to hospital and hospital-affiliated imaging facilities
Two imaging locations:
Our studies are interpreted by board-certified radiologists.
Some of our studies include CT Urograms, X-ray Cystograms and Renal Ultrasounds. We are ACR accredited at both imaging locations by the American College of Radiology, which indicates that our Imaging Centers produce high quality studies and adhere to strict national guidelines regarding radiation use and exposure to patients.
Our Imaging Centers provide the highest quality Computed Tomography (CT) services with a competent and caring staff. Our scheduling is simple and accommodating, and results are available quickly.
Computed Tomography (CT) is a technology that acquires a series of two-dimensional images of the body using beams of x-ray. These images allow the physician to diagnose many different types of disease. CT scans can be obtained with or without contrast agents. Contrast agents can be introduced to the body by either drinking a liquid or with an intravenous injection. This contrast can complement the non-contrast scan by highlighting specific areas of the body making them more visible. This increased visibility helps the radiologist determine the presence and extent of disease or injury.
Our Imaging Centers enjoy an affiliation with Riverside Radiology, which is comprised of highly trained, board-certified radiologists who analyze and professionally interpret all the diagnostic CT scans produced at Central Ohio Urology Group.
The physicians of Central Ohio Urology Group have the ability to perform ultrasound imaging at both of our medical Imaging Centers in Gahanna and Worthington, Ohio. An ultrasound uses reflected sound waves to reproduce a picture of the organs without the use of radiation. Typically, this is performed by placing an ultrasound probe on the skin with ultrasound gel with the probe positioned in specific areas of the abdomen and back to better evaluate intrabdominal organs such as the kidneys, bladder, prostate, liver and associated organs of interest.
X-ray | Digital Radiography
Digital Radiography (DR) is the latest advancement in radiography. DR technology quickly transfers images to the computer so you can view and diagnose without wait time. DR systems can be fixed or mobile. These systems are perfect for any clinic or mobile practice. Digital radiography systems are more expensive than Computed Radiography, and they come with many advantages.
