Types of Imaging Services Offered

At Memorial Hermann, our imaging services encompass a wide range of technology, including:

  • Open MRI: An open MRI machine consists of two flat magnets positioned above and below you, creating a spacious area to lie comfortably. This design provides open space on both sides and helps alleviate the feeling of claustrophobia that many individuals may experience with closed-bore MRI machines.


  • CT Scan: This is a type of computerized X-ray imaging where a thin beam of X-rays is directed at a patient and swiftly rotated around their body. The machine’s computer then processes the signals to create cross-sectional images called “slices.”


  • Ultrasound: An ultrasound is a non-invasive imaging procedure that uses sound waves to create images of your body’s organs, tissues, and other structures. It lets your healthcare provider see inside your body without surgery. Ultrasound, also known as sonography, is a safe and painless procedure.


  • Digital X-Ray: This creates an instant digital image on a computer. Instead of traditional film, it uses x-ray-sensitive plates to capture data during the examination.


  • Fluoroscopy: This medical imaging technique involves passing an X-ray beam through the body and transmitting the resulting image to a monitor. This allows us to observe the detailed movement of body parts, instruments, or contrast agents as they traverse the body.


  • Myelogram: This imaging test is used to detect issues in your spinal canal. A special dye is injected into the spinal canal to help highlight specific organs, blood vessels, and tissues on an X-ray image.


  • Arthrogram: This test examines the inside of a joint for injuries or other issues. It captures images that provide doctors with a view of the soft tissue within a joint, which a regular X-ray cannot accomplish.
