Memorial Hermann’s Imaging Services: A Closer Look

Now that we’ve established the value of advanced imaging technology, let’s explore the services offered at Memorial Hermann Surgical Hospital First Colony.

  • Arthrogram: An arthrogram is an imaging procedure primarily used to diagnose joint problems. It involves injecting a contrast dye into the joint and using computerized tomography or magnetic resonance imaging to capture images.
  • CT Scan: A computerized tomography (CT) scan is a medical imaging procedure that utilizes X-ray technology to produce cross-sectional images of the body. These images provide detailed information about bones, organs, and tissues.
  • Digital X-rays: Medical X-rays are utilized to generate highly detailed images of internal body tissues and structures, providing valuable insights into the intricacies of the human anatomy. The process is quick, and images can be viewed immediately, making it useful for emergencies.
  • Fluoroscopy: This is a specialized medical imaging technique that displays a real-time X-ray image on a monitor, providing continuous visualization of internal structures. It is typically used to guide medical procedures such as biopsies and catheter insertions.
  • Myelogram: Myelography uses real-time X-rays and a contrast material injection to evaluate the spinal cord, nerve roots, and spinal lining. It is valuable for post-surgical spine assessment and examining disc abnormalities in patients without an MRI.
  • Open MRI: Our open magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machine is designed to cater to patients who may experience claustrophobia or discomfort in traditional MRI machines. It provides high-quality images while allowing for a more comfortable experience.
  • Ultrasound: Ultrasound imaging uses high-frequency sound waves to produce images of internal body structures, especially soft tissues. It is commonly used in prenatal care and diagnosing conditions in the abdomen, pelvis, and blood vessels.
