Excellence from Head to Toe

Wake Radiology combines clinical expertise and advanced radiology technologies to provide a full range of leading-edge imaging studies to detect, diagnose and stage disease for acute and chronic conditions.

Procedures for the Abdomen

Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Ultrasound Screenings

Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) screenings use ultrasound to easily detect these aneurysms. This type of aneurysms usually occur in the aorta, just below the kidneys. The largest of these aneurysms can burst and lead to death within a few minutes.

Barium Enema

A barium enema is an x-ray study that uses a non-toxic contrast liquid to highlight organs, like the large intestine, that need to be studied.

Colon Cancer Screenings: Barium Enemas

Barium enema exams are an alternative for patients who cannot tolerate the sedation required for a colonoscopy. This procedure uses barium to provide contrast inside the colon. X-rays can reveal polyps or other abnormalities.

CT Scan

CT scanning—sometimes called CAT scanning—is a noninvasive medical test that helps physicians diagnose and treat medical conditions. Wake Radiology’s CT program follows strict dose reduction guidelines for both adult and pediatric CT exams.

Central venous access devices are small, flexible tubes placed in large veins for people who require frequent access to the bloodstream. They allow medications to be delivered directly into larger veins, are less likely to clot, and can be left in for long periods.

Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy is the most common treatment for both spider veins and varicose veins. This outpatient procedure causes the vein to shrink and is eventually absorbed by the body. Sclerotherapy is performed at our Vein Center in Cary.

Ultrasound

Ultrasound imaging is a non-invasive imaging modality that helps physicians diagnose and treat many medical conditions. Through the use of sound waves, not radiation, ultrasound images are capable of showing everything from the structure of major organs in the body to blood flow through blood vessels.

Varicose and Spider Vein Consultations

Both spider and varicose veins can be effectively treated with both lifestyle changes and medical procedures. For severe symptoms and to improve how your legs look, a consultation with our vein specialist can help determine proper care.

Varicose Vein Ablation

Varicose vein treatment, or endovenous ablation, is an outpatient patient, minimally invasive treatment that uses radiofrequency or laser energy to cauterize and close abnormally enlarged veins in the legs.
