Medical Imaging & Radiology

Medical Imaging & Radiology Orlando FLThe key to effective treatment for any health condition lies in an accurate diagnosis. In some cases, the diagnostic process involves medical imaging. For instance, when evaluating an illness or injury, Dr. Toni “Muzzi” Muzzonigro – the board-certified family practice physician at Optimum Direct Care – may order an imaging test, such as an:

X-Ray

Used for diagnostic purposes for more than a century, X-ray technology is continually growing more sophisticated and precise. X-ray images remain a vital tool for diagnosing many common illnesses and injuries, such as pneumonia and bone fractures.

Computed Tomography (CT) Scan

Combining multiple X-ray images taken from various angles, a CT scan provides highly detailed, cross-sectional views of the inside of the body. In addition to revealing complex bone fractures and internal bleeding, a CT scan can help a doctor diagnose heart disease, emphysema, or cancer.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Scan

Unlike X-rays and CT scans, which use radiation, MRIs use a powerful magnetic field, radiofrequency pulses, and a computer to produce highly detailed images of soft tissue structures near and around bones, blood vessels, and organs.

Ultrasound

Also known as sonography, ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves that travel freely through fluid and soft tissues but bounce back from denser objects, such as solid tumors and gallstones. The resulting “echoes” are then collected and used to create images of the body’s inner structures. Ultrasound technology has many applications; for instance, it can be used to evaluate the heart, blood flow, a breast lump, or fetal development.

“Dr. Muzzi knows me. She knows what I do for work, where I travel, sports and activities, our pets, what I wear to Burning Man and even knows my Dad (who approves!). Taken at face value, this may seem like a cute note to show that we’re friendly. But this depth of knowledge is organically woven into the care she provides every time we speak and my health is better for it. ”

“The switch to Dr. Muzzi took some getting used to. I am not accustomed to Doctors actually calling me back promptly nor spending quality time with me analyzing my complete medical make up. In this medical era of “get them in and get them out quickly”, her approach is professionally refreshing.”
