Treatment Begins with a Comprehensive and Accurate Diagnosis.
Today, advanced imaging plays a major role in diagnosing and treatment of all health related issues. For the surgical services provided at Baylor Medical Center at Uptown, access to advanced diagnostic imaging is absolutely essential.
Advanced imaging tools such as:
– X-Rays are a form of radiation used to create images of patient’s bones and soft tissue structures. This is a quick and painless non-invasive procedure that can look inside the human body. X-ray images help the radiologist (a physician who reads X-Rays) diagnose the patient’s illness or condition (fractures, dislocations, spinal abnormalities, etc.).
CT (Computed Tomography)
– A CT scan (also known as a CAT scan or Computed Tomography) is a special kind of X-ray that takes cross-sectional pictures of your body or body parts. CT scans may be used to find certain conditions that regular X-rays cannot find. CT scans also can be used to monitor progress during or after medical treatment for some conditions. The CT scanner is comprised of an X-ray tube that moves around your body. The CT scanner then sends signals to a computer to create a computer image.
MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging)
– Magnetic Resonance Imaging, or MRI, is a noninvasive, painless way to look at organs and tissues inside the body. A MRI is a test that can find changes in your body and can lead to early diagnosis and treatment of disease. Not every patient can have an MRI; for safety reasons all patients are screened extensively to rule out any metallic foreign objects. MRI does not use radiation; instead it uses a large magnet, radio waves and a computer to create images of your organs and tissues.
– Ultrasound (also know as Sonography) is used to create images of soft tissue structures using sound waves. It can also measure the flow of blood in the arteries to detect blockages. A Technologist with specialized training in Ultrasound, works closely with a Radiologist to interpret ultrasound images to help diagnose and treat certain conditions.
