Diagnostic Imaging


Ultrasound imaging, also known as sonography, is a procedure at Toll Gate Radiology in which a water-soluble gel is placed on the area to be visualized. Most patients think of ultrasound during pregnancy, but this diagnostic imaging tool has a wide range of uses.

Ultrasound uses high frequency sound waves that pass into the body and sends echoes back to produce images of your internal structures with no radiation exposure. Ultrasounds can also show internal motion such as blood flowing through the veins and a beating heart.

Toll Gate Radiology incorporates the use of various multi-frequency transducers, with Doppler and color flow that allows us to perform ultrasound exams on all areas of the body.

Because our sonographers have over 20 years of experience, Toll Gate Radiology can ensure that you will have the best possible ultrasound exam obtainable.

Diagnostic Imaging X-ray


X-rays have been used for decades and are still the most common imaging study ordered today. Toll Gate Radiology uses equipment that produces digital diagnostic images of your body that let your doctors view and assess broken bones, sports injuries, and possibly early forms of bone cancer.

Toll Gate Radiology offers walk-in service for all general x-ray exams – no preparation or appointments are needed.

CT Scan

Better known as a “Cat Scan”, computed tomography (CT), combines low-dose x-rays with computer technology to obtain images of almost any part of your body for examining injuries and abnormalities, guiding needle biopsies, and aiding in surgical preparation.

CT scanning is an invaluable tool in the early detection of lung cancer because of its abilities to detect the smallest tumors, potentially before the patient notices any symptoms. Therefore, this painless diagnostic imaging tool may save your life.

Toll Gate Radiology also uses a new state of the art 128 Slice Philips Incisive Ct Scanner for these three advanced applications:

  • CT Angiography – An accurate picture of blood flow through the vessels of the head, neck, chest, abdomen, pelvis and extremities.
  • 3-Dimensional Imaging – A clear 3-D view of bone structure, assessing degenerative or traumatic alterations.
  • Calcium Scoring – A statistical estimate of your risk for having a heart attack.

During a CT scan:

  • The patient is positioned on a table on his or her back, side or stomach, and may be provided with pillows for comfortable support.
  • The table moves very slowly through the large doughnut-shaped CT scanner.
  • The X-ray beam inside the CT unit spirals slowly around the patient on all sides, creating 360-degree images or “slices” of the area being examined.
  • As the patient moves through the unit, many slices are captured.
  • The images are then combined to produce a highly detailed, three-dimensional digital image on areas as small as 1/100th of an inch.
