Accurate Imaging for Peace of Mind

Delivering high-quality medical imaging is imperative in the diagnosis and treatment of injury or illness. Superior technology and a highly trained staff makes Astera Health an outstanding, local option for this critical work. Diagnostic imaging is a process used to create images of the human body for clinical purposes. More than 25,000 procedures are performed annually by the Astera Health staff that includes several registered radiologic technologists; one cardiac registered sonographer; four registered sonographers; and three registration and scheduling staff.

Special Procedures

Using minimally invasive techniques that involve tiny incisions, small catheters and/or needles, Astera Health can target and treat problem areas in nearly every organ system. Procedures involve less pain, less risk and shorter recovery times.

Our experienced special procedures team offers advanced technology and precise techniques to help you get the best possible diagnosis and treatment, often without surgery. Procedures offered at AH include:

Medical imaging used in the evaluation of joints.
Imaging-guided techniques or computed tomography (CT) increase the precision of back and joint injections. These techniques can provide better results and reduced complication rates.
This non-invasive procedure allows for accurate assessment of bone density and detection of clinically significant changes in bone mass or conditions such as osteoporosis.
Also called an echo test or heart ultrasound, this is a test that takes “moving pictures” of the heart with sound waves.
Nuclear cardiology uses non-invasive techniques to evaluate how well a heart is pumping, analyze the presence and severity of coronary plaque and fat, visualize the size and location of a heart attack, and measure myocardial blood flow.

This is a procedure that uses mammography to precisely identify and biopsy an abnormality within the breast. It is normally done when the radiologist sees a suspicious abnormality on a mammogram that can’t be felt in a physical exam.

An image guided biopsy is generally performed when an abnormal mass or lump has been found in an organ (thyroid, liver, kidney, lung, etc.) or body part (bone, abdomen, pelvis, lymph nodes, etc.). A biopsy is the most definitive way to determine if the abnormal tissue is cancerous.

Astera can assess your clinical situation through a thorough history, a clinical examination and, in many cases, a duplex ultrasound examination of your venous system. Vein Ablation is a minimally invasive outpatient treatment for venous insufficiency that is performed using ultrasound guidance.
