Imaging

Gottlieb offers a full spectrum of imaging services by our board-certified radiologists and highly experienced technicians. Our imaging services range from the simplest radiographs and ultrasound images to the most complicated and high-tech computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and nuclear medicine.

Electronic images are available instantly to physicians through an electronic medical record system for efficient consultation.

To make an appointment, call 708-538-4917.

  • CT scan (computed tomography) — A CT scan combines a series of cross-sectional X-rays, which allows your doctor to visualize your bones, blood vessels and soft tissues in order to diagnose disease or injury and create an effective treatment plan.
     
  • Fluoroscopy — Fluoroscopy uses continuous X-ray technology to produce video images of your skeletal, urinary, digestive or respiratory system. Your doctor may use a fluoroscopic study for the evaluation of the skeletal, digestive, urinary, respiratory or reproductive system. Learn more about fluoroscopy.
     
  • MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) — This technique uses radio waves and a magnetic field to produce detailed images of your organs, tissues and skeletal system. MRI does not use radiation.
     
  • Nuclear Medicine — These services include all aspects of imaging including cardiology, sentinel node detection and therapies.
     
  • PET-CT scan (positron emission tomography) — Loyola Cancer Care & Research at the Marjorie G. Weinberg Cancer Center at Gottlieb offers one of the world’s most sophisticated PET scanners for detecting cancer and other conditions. This nuclear imaging study is used to show how the organs are functioning through the use of a tracer that highlights abnormalities or disease. PET-CT is performed  Mondays and Tuesdays.
     
  • Ultrasound —  Using high-frequency sound waves, your technologist can produce moving images of organs, bones and soft tissues. Ultrasound technology uses high-frequency sound waves to create images of structures within your body.
     
  • X-ray — This technology is efficient and painless in providing images of your bone structures and tissues that can be used to detect bone fractures, cardiovascular conditions, cancer and pneumonia. A contrast medium may be used to show greater detail.

  • 3D imaging lab — The lab constructs three dimensional models from CT and MR images.
     
  • Cardiology Diagnostics — Full diagnostics are available for cardiovascular health.
     
  • Interventional neuroradiology — The department offers high-tech, minimally invasive treatment for neurological problems - such as brain aneurysms, blood clots and tumors - that can prevent the need for surgery.
     
  • Interventional radiology — Using imaging technology and very small instruments, radiologists treat a variety of disorders without surgery, such as balloon angioplasty to open blocked blood vessels, embolization to stop bleeding or block blood flow to an aneurysm or tumor, and radiofrequency ablation to kill cancerous tumors.
     
  • Pediatric radiology — This service focuses exclusively on radiological imaging of pediatric patients.
     
  • Women’s Imaging — Screening and diagnostic imaging is performed in a facility dedicated exclusively to women’s imaging. Mammograms and other procedures are offered, including image-guided breast biopsies and osteoporosis screening.
