Imaging services are offered on-site at North Star Lodge to help diagnosis or monitor changes in your condition. Those services include CAT Scans and X-Rays. Both use highly charged particles to "take a special type of picture" of bones and/or tissues and organs.

X-Rays use Gamma rays, which are reflected on a metal plate. X-rays can be taken of any area of the body, and can reveal suspicious areas or changes the doctor is watching.

A CAT Scan is a computerized axial tomography (close-up slice of tissue) of an organ or system in the body. CAT Scans allow doctors to view tumors (abnormal tissue growths) or changes to tumors or organs.
