Musculoskeletal imaging services at the Lennar Foundation Medical Center, part of the University of Miami Health System, focus on advanced diagnostic and therapeutic imaging services for conditions affecting the bones, muscles, and joints. Building on our commitment to state-of-the-art technology and patient-centered care, our mission is to improve the quality of patients’ lives through early diagnosis and treatment.
Imaging Services Offered
We offer a wide range of specialized imaging technologies to give patients precise and understandable results. Our highly qualified team is available to provide additional details about our offerings. Review our cutting-edge services below.
Bone Density Scan
An important tool for assessing bone strength and mass, our bone density scans aid in the early detection of osteoporosis and risk assessment for fractures. It also lets us know if osteoporosis treatment is working.
Computed Tomography (CT)
Computed tomography (CT) scans use a series of X-rays and a computer to create detailed images of the bones and soft tissues. CT scans allow us to see things that won’t show up on regular X-rays.
Fluoroscopy shows real-time footage of tissues inside the body on a monitor. This helps us see the body’s systems in action and provides visual guidance for certain procedures.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
We use magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to take detailed images of internal structures. MRI is noninvasive and helps evaluate and diagnose conditions affecting bones and soft tissues.
We use ultrasound imaging to diagnose musculoskeletal conditions like tendon injuries, muscle abnormalities, and arthritis. Ultrasound is also a safe and common method for viewing babies in the womb.
Ultrasound guidance lets us see nearby structures in the body and deliver medication to the exact trigger point. This precise approach quickly relieves pain and inflammation where you need it.
Women's imaging includes diagnostic imaging procedures that help diagnose conditions common in women, such as breast or gynecological cancers. We offer mammograms, ultrasound, breast MRI, and image-guided biopsy.
X-ray uses invisible electromagnetic waves to produce images of internal structures, particularly the bones. It uses a very small amount of ionizing radiation to produce these pictures.
We ensure the safety and security of all patients, team members, and visitors. This includes radiation hygiene, interventional procedures using imaging guidance, and using contrast agents for improved visibility. Policies and procedures that ensure safety and security are established through administrative controls and oversight.
All imaging exams performed at Lennar are interpreted by experts who are certified by the American College of Radiology in MRI, CT, ultrasound, and PET scans. Our experts have specialized training in musculoskeletal imaging, ensuring top-notch diagnostic and therapeutic services. Our experts are also nationally recognized for their contributions to radiology.
Experienced radiologists can detect subtle X-ray findings early, before they progress and become more obvious. This enables early diagnosis and treatment, ultimately leading to improved outcomes and reduced costs.
