Treatments & Services

Many medical conditions require that the physician observe the body’s internal structures in order to make an accurate diagnosis. At Jupiter Medical Center, our team of experienced radiologists have access to leading-edge imaging technology that allows us to see inside a patient without an invasive surgery. Imaging devices create detailed images or, in some cases, real time video footage of areas the doctor needs to examine before moving ahead with treatment. These procedures are extremely safe and allow doctors to make important decisions more quickly.

Imaging-Assisted Treatments

In addition to their diagnostic purposes, imaging services can also be used for various medical treatments. A popular form of imaging-assisted treatment is minimally invasive surgery. In these operations, surgeons use real time video feed from an imaging device to perform surgery. Instead of cutting a patient completely open, the doctor can use the image technology to make small, strategic incisions and guide the procedure using the nearby monitor. Imaging can also be used to determine the effectiveness of a patient’s treatment by observing their body’s internal changes over time.
