Imaging Services We Offer
- 128 channel CT or CAT Scans Computerized tomography (CT scan) combines a series of X-ray views taken from different angles and computer processing to create cross-sectional images of the bones and soft tissues inside the body.
- 3D Mammography with Digital Breast Tomosynthesis Mammagraphy is an X-ray picture of the breast used to check for breast cancer. Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel offers 3D Mammography with Digital Breast Tomosynthesis (Tomo), considered a breakthrough in mammography, providing a clearer more accurate view of the breast, leading to better detection, fewer call backs and greater peace of mind.
- Endoscopy Used to see inside the body’s organs or hollow cavities, the small instrument, called an endoscope, is a flexible tube that usually includes a small scope at the end to take pictures and a cutting tool to remove tissue. The endoscopy procedure involves inserting the small flexible tube into the mouth or the anus to examine the organs. While this concept is used to diagnose conditions throughout the body, the name of the procedure differs depending on which organs are being examined. Florida Hospital physicians use endoscopies to diagnose and treat conditions from inner ear issues to stomach cancer.
- Bone Densitometry Bone densitometry is used to measure the bone mineral content and density. This measurement can indicate decreased bone mass, a condition in which bones are more brittle and more prone to break or fracture easily. Bone densitometry is used primarily to diagnose osteoporosis and to determine fracture risk. It is recommended that all women aged 65 and older should be screened for osteoporosis. Additionally, it is recommended that bariatric surgery patients be tested prior to surgery and regularly assessed. There may be other reasons for your doctor to recommend bone densitometry.

- Fluoroscopy During a fluoroscopy procedure, an X-ray beam is passed through the body to create a continuous image on a monitor.
- 3T MRI A procedure using magnetic fields and radio-wave energy to generate detailed pictures of the body. Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel is home to a 3T MRI, which allows for quicker more accurate diagnoses.
- Digital X-ray X-ray imaging works by directing radiation through body tissue to create images of internal structures, allowing physicians to view bones, muscles and organs.
- Ultrasound and 3D Ultrasound (Vascular, General and OB/GYN) Ultrasound works by beaming sound waves into the body to generate images of internal organs and blood vessels.
- PET A type of nuclear medicine measuring the metabolic activity of cells and used to evaluate tumors.
