Complete Care, Convenient Locations

Here’s a look at some of our imaging services.

Endoscopic Ultrasound
The UConn Health Center has the newest generation of endoscopic ultrasound to allow physicians to examine the lining and walls of the upper stomach. It is an excellent diagnostic tool to find cancer in its earliest stages.

DEXA Scan
This is the gold standard test to measure bone density and diagnose the presence of osteoporosis. It is a critical tool for UConn’s world renowned osteoporosis team.

Mammography
Digital mammography and conventional mammography are available in Farmington. Conventional mammography is also available in the East Hartford office of UConn Health Partners at 99 Ash Street. These imaging technologies are the best available tools to detect changes in the breast and find breast cancer at its earliest stages.

Multi-Detector, High-Resolution CT Scanners
CT Scans, or computerized tomography, show a slice or cross-section of the body, using computerized imagery. This technology provides detailed, three dimensional images of the most intricate anatomical structures and systems in the body.

Nuclear Imaging
Nuclear imaging includes several modern tests that provide images based on the body’s chemistry. These are excellent tools in the diagnosis of cancer, especially tumors of the bones and the thyroid. Nuclear tests can also be used to determine the stage of a particular cancer.

Open MRI
Magnetic resonance imaging is a noninvasive tool that uses strong magnets and computer imaging to diagnose diseases. UConn offers high-field, high-resolution MRI and a new, high-resolution Open MRI that allows for faster scanning, more detailed images and more accurate diagnoses.

PET/CT Scan
The combined PET/CT scan allows physicians to see a three-dimensional view of an organ and the location of a growth or tumor in the organ. It is also a critical diagnostic tool for UConn cancer specialists.

PET Scan
Positron Emission Tomography is a newer imaging technology that allows experts to measure the metabolism, or chemistry, of organs and other tissues. It is an especially important diagnostic tool for many types of cancer, neurological conditions and cardiovascular disease.

TomoTherapy
UConn now offers TomoTherapy, a precise radiation oncology treatment for certain types of cancers.

X-ray and Ultrasound
X-rays and ultrasounds are diagnostic staples for physicians looking at a wide variety of conditions, from broken bones to stomach ulcers. The UConn Health Center offers comprehensive, modern radiology services.
