We offer the following chest scans:
CT scans performed by SMIL board-certified radiologists offer a more precise, noninvasive visualization of the structures in your chest like the lungs.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans performed by SMIL board-certified radiologists offer a noninvasive medical test that helps physicians diagnose and treat medical conditions relating to the chest. Detailed MR images allow physicians to evaluate structures in the chest from almost every angle.
SMIL performs ultrasound imaging to help detect abnormalities in the chest.
