ELECTROMYOGRAPHY & NERVE CONDUCTION STUDIES
In December 2016 Regional Imaging added EMG/NCS. If your physician has ordered electromyography (EMG) and nerve conduction velocity (NCV) to help evaluate and treat problems related to your nevers and muscles Regional Imaging can take care of you. The test is usually carried out when an individual is experiencing unexplained weakness of the muscles. This helps to know the true weakness that is affecting the muscles. During the test, the electrical currents/signals are translated by an EMG, which features devices called electrodes for detecting and transmittting the signals. The test also allows the strength and speed of the signals to be determined through a process called nerve conduction study. Our Board Certified Therapist is Shawn Humphries.

If you have ever had a traditional MRI scan, you may have felt a little uncomfortable or confined in the small enclosed space of the machine. With modern advancements in technology and medical equipment, scans do not have to be performed in this manner any longer. At Regional Imaging, we have modern open MRI machines on site for our patients who would like a little extra room during the procedure. But by choosing an open MRI, patients can be more relaxed and comfortable for the duration of the scan. If you need to have a scan completed, be sure to contact Regional Imaging of Thomson, GA today to schedule your appointment.
No special preparation is needed prior to undergoing MRI imaging. Contact our diagnostic imaging center for more information on the policies and procedures to keep in mind before your scan.

At times, people can feel claustrophobic or confined in a small MRI imaging machine, leading to anxiety. There is nothing to fear when having the exam done. It is completely painless. If you or a loved one is still concerned about the confined space in a traditional machine, please consider our open MRI machines.

PROVIDING YOU WITH ALL YOUR ULTRASOUND NEEDS
Ultrasound imaging is also known as “sonography”. It is a safe, simple and painless imaging procedure that bounces high-frequency sound waves off parts of the body and captures the returning “echoes” as images. There is no radiation exposure associated with ultrasound diagnostics and there are no injections. Our ultrasound services are able to provide moving images for the following areas or concerns:
Female & Male Reproductive Systems
If your specific reason for having an ultrasound ordered is not listed, call our office, and our friendly staff at Regional Imaging will be more than happy to help.
