Coronavirus Update,March 18, 2020

Covid-19, 2020The team at RAVE imaging is actively monitoring the continuous changes related to the novel COVID-19 virus. Our focus is on the health and well-being of our patients, staff, and colleagues. We continue to treat patients with a variety of illnesses completely unrelated to COVID-19. 

We continue our normal routine of wiping all treatment surfaces with medical-grade antibacterial and antiviral cleansing agents after each patient visit. Each night, our patient rooms are cleaned, during which all surfaces are wiped with the highest grade antibacterial/antiviral cleansing agents available. Our staff has been instructed to stay at home if they are having any cold or flu-like symptoms, as well as if they have traveled out of the country or have been on a cruise within the last 14 days. We will also begin monitoring their temperature daily while at work. We will continue to follow the recommendations of the CDC for any staff member to self-quarantine in the future if they have been exposed to an individual diagnosed with COVID-19. We would strongly encourage our patients to follow these same recommendations. If you are ill, please contact our office to have your appointment rescheduled. 

We are taking several additional steps in order to keep you safe and observe proper social distancing. Upon arrival, patients will contact our front desk to check-in. We will keep patients in the waiting room to a minimum and everyone else will be asked to wait in their car and be individually invited into the office when they are ready to be seen. We will not be able to image or treat anyone with a fever at this time. If you have a fever it is recommended that you contact your primary care provider for further instruction/care.

For those of you who are presently scheduled for procedures and/or diagnostic imaging, we are fully operational and continue to provide a safe and germ-free environment. For those patients who have circumstances requiring rescheduling of their exam, we will work with you to arrange an alternate date. 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call us at our office (941) 488-7781. Any of our staff and physicians will be glad to speak to you.

Coronavirus COVID-19 Update:

Covid-10 update 2020We want to keep you and your family safe and want you to be familiar with the current recommendations for COVID- 19.

The latest updates on COVID-19 and its potential spread in the United States, visit the CDC’s designated COVID-19 website: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html


Please call your primary care provider first and speak with our clinical staff to determine if you need an appointment or home care advice.

Protect yourself and your community by:

  • Washing your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.
  • If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
  • Avoid making contact with your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • If you are sick, stay home to help prevent the spread of disease.
  • Always cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze.
  • Try to cough or sneeze into a tissue and throw away.
  • Avoid sharing personal household items and frequently disinfect high touch areas.
  • Monitor your symptoms and call the office before seeking care.

Wearing masks:

Generally speaking, wearing a mask is not necessary when going about your day-to-day life. In fact, masks can actually increase the risk of catching a disease. They can become uncomfortable, which usually means people touch their mouth and nose more often to adjust the mask. But if you are sick, wearing a mask can help prevent the spread of germs to other people.

The best way to fight the COVID-19 is to wash your hands.

September is prostate cancer awareness month


Your physician may recommend a Prostate MRI if you have elevated PSA levels in order to determine if you have prostate cancer. If you have already been diagnosed with prostate cancer, an MRI may be used to localize the tumor and determine if it has spread outside of the prostate gland. It may also be used to evaluate other prostate conditions such as an enlarged prostate, infection of the prostate, complications after pelvic surgery or other abnormalities. In some cases, a Prostate MRI is used to help plan prostate cancer treatment or monitor the prostate to determine if cancer has returned.

Peripheral Artery Disease


Posted June 21st, 2019

Many people who have peripheral artery disease (P.A.D.) don’t have any signs or symptoms.

Even if you don't have signs or symptoms, ask your doctor whether you should get checked for P.A.D. if you're:

  • Aged 70 or older
  • Aged 50 or older and have a history of smoking or diabetes
  • Younger than 50 and have diabetes and one or more risk factors for atherosclerosis
  • Intermittent Claudication

People who have P.A.D. may have symptoms when walking or climbing stairs, which may include pain, numbness, aching, or heaviness in the leg muscles. Symptoms also may include cramping in the affected leg(s) and in the buttocks, thighs, calves, and feet. Symptoms may ease after resting. These symptoms are called intermittent claudication.

During physical activity, your muscles need increased blood flow. If your blood vessels are narrowed or blocked, your muscles won't get enough blood, which will lead to symptoms. When resting, the muscles need less blood flow, so the symptoms will go away.

MRI vs. CTWhat is the difference between an MRI and CT Scan?

Posted February 6th, 2018

MRI uses a strong magnetic field, radio waves and a computer. This enables MRI to make very detailed pictures of bone, organs, soft tissues and any other body structures. Differences between normal and abnormal tissue is often clearer on an MRI image than a CT.

CT uses a very thin special X-ray beam to produce detailed, cross sectional views of the area being studied. CT is often the preferred method of diagnosing causes of pain and many different forms of cancer.

CT ScanLung Cancer Screening at RAVE!

Posted January 31nd, 2018

If you have been a heavy smoker, then you are at significantly increased risk for developing lung cancer. CT can find small lung nodules that might be cancer before they can be found by any other test. If you are between the ages of 55 and 75, then national experts recommend you undergo low dose CT screening for lung cancer. These recommendations come from many groups of medical experts including the National Lung Screening Trial Research Team, the American College of Chest Physicians, and American Society of Clinical Oncology.

At RAVE we are committed to you and your family’s health. If you wish to undergo a lung cancer screening, you can either ask your doctor to order it or you can contact us directly at (941) 488-7781.
