The Regenerative SportsCare Institute has the unique advantage of having a comprehensive suite of imaging technologies in-house. This capability allows RSI physicians to diagnose and treat many of our patients in the same day.
Our imaging capabilities include:
RSI employs the latest low dose X-ray imaging on site to allow for rapid diagnosis. Patients may take their images with them at no additional cost.
Ultrasound imaging uses sound waves to produce images of muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints. Ultrasound imaging is used to diagnose sprains, strains, tears and other soft tissue conditions. Ultrasound is safe, noninvasive and does not use ionizing radiation. While some physicians perform ‘blind’ injection procedures that may reduce the likelihood of a successful outcome, the RSI care team uses ultrasound guidance for several injection procedures to ensure that regenerative therapies are introduced into the precise, desired location.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), is a technique used to create detailed images of the human body. MRI continues to be the standard of care for imaging ligament, cartilage, and bone abnormalities. RSI has its own in-house, environmentally-engineered, open architecture MRI designed to reduce claustrophobia by creating space above the patient’s head and body. Moreover, this particular unit does not require cryogens to cool the magnet, reducing its environmental impact.
Fluoroscopy is a type of medical imaging that provides real-time X-ray imaging. During a fluoroscopy procedure, an X-ray beam is passed through the body, transmitting the image to a monitor to allow the physician to visualize an anatomical structure in detail. Our physicians use fluoroscopy to guide a variety of diagnostic and interventional procedures.
