Specialties

Dr. Michael D Coffey has the following 3 specialties

  • Diagnostic Radiology

    Radiologists help doctors get a closer look at what’s happening inside your body. If your primary care doctor wants to investigate your symptoms further, they may refer you to a radiologist to get an ultrasound or x-ray. Some radiologists specialize in mammography and breast imaging, which is who you see when you need a mammogram. A Radiologist can also determine if bones are broken or fractured after any kind of accident.
    Radiologists are trained to perform MRIs and CT scans, both of which are used to determine the presence of diseases or disorders and help your doctor properly diagnose you. They can detect anything from tumors, bleeding and infections to bone and muscle disorders.

  • Neuroradiology

    Neuroradiologists focus specifically on diagnosing conditions related to the nervous system, spine, head and neck through radiology. They can identify abnormalities in these areas and help doctors properly diagnose the presence of tumors, aneurysms and even dementia.
    It’s also common for them to consult with patients with persistent headaches or back pains, trauma to a certain area, or any issue that can affect brain function, such as a stroke. Like any radiologist, they are trained to perform x-rays, cat scans, ultrasounds and MRIs, but they work closely with neurologists and neurosurgeons.

  • Nuclear Medicine

    Nuclear medicine specialists are doctors who have extensive training in the use of nuclear substances, like radiation, to diagnose and treat certain illnesses.
    These specialists perform diagnostic tests in which a small amount of a radioactive substance is injected into a vein, inhaled or taken orally by the patient. The radioactive substance then enables the nuclear medicine specialist to use a scanner to detect the radiation level in the part of the body being examined in order to create an image of it with a computer. The images tell the physician whether there are abnormal changes in metabolism which indicate whether a disease or injury is present. These tests are often used to detect cancer.
    In addition to detecting cancer, substances like radioactive iodine can be either injected into the blood stream or taken orally to fight cancer and other diseases. After being ingested, the substance is absorbed by the thyroid gland and abnormal thyroid tissues are destroyed.

Patient

Dr. Michael Coffey COMPLETELY ignored the Tarlov Cyst on my MRI, even though the doctor SAID that was a reason for the MRI. The MRI technician told me that he took EXTRA "pictures" of it. It's INEXCUSABLE for Dr. Coffey to decide that it was irrelevant! There is NEW research and clinical evidence regarding Tarlov Cysts. They are not just an "incidental" finding on an MRI! Dr. Tarlov himself said that he was WRONG for "assuming" they were always asymptomatic. MRI's take TIME and MONEY and aggravate painful back conditions. For Dr. Michael Coffey to decide that the Tarlov Cyst was unimportant is appalling and inexcusable. Dr. Michael Coffey needs to re-read my MRI. Accurately this time.
