Computed Tomography:
Computed tomography (CT) is a test that combines x-rays and computer scans. The result is a detailed picture that can show problems with soft tissues (such as the lining of your sinuses), organs (such as your kidneys or lungs), and bones. CT is available at our inpatient facilities as well as our our Outpatient Diagostic Center in College Station .

Scheduled outpatient procedures are available from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM, Monday through Friday. Emergency services are available 24 hours a day. A radiologist is available 7am-8pm Monday through Friday and available "on-call" after hours and on weekends.

Diagnostic Radiology:
Diagnostic Radiology offers all aspects of diagnostic services including flurorscopy, tomography and routine x-ray. Fluoroscopy is available at our inpatient facilities. Routine radiographs (general diagnostic x-rays) are available at our inpatient facilities, family medicine clinics, urgent cares and our Outpatient Diagostic Center in College Station. Tomography is available only at the acute care hospital in Bryan.

Scheduled outpatient procedures are available from 7:30 AM to 5:00 PM, Monday through Friday. Emergency services are available 24 hours a day. A radiologist is available 7am-8pm Monday through Friday and available "on-call" after hours and on weekends.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI):
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a test that lets your doctor see detailed pictures of the inside of your body. MRI combines the use of strong magnets and radio waves to form an MRI image. MRI is available at the acute care hospital in Bryan as well as our Outpatient Diagostic Center in College Station.

CAUTION: The magnet used in MRI can cause metal objects in your body to move. You may be asked about any of the following:

  • If you've had any previous surgery
  • If you have a pacemaker or other implants
  • Metal splinters in your body
  • Tattoos

Scheduled outpatient procedures are available from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM, Monday through Friday. Emergency services are available 24 hours a day. A radiologist is available 7am-8pm Monday through Friday and available "on-call" after hours and on weekends.

Nuclear Medicine:
Nuclear medicine scans provide information about both the anatomy and the function of organs in the body. When the patient undergoes a nuclear medicine scan, he/she will be given a chemical compound which contains a small amount of radioactive substance. It is most commonly administered either by injection into a vein in the arm, by swallowing a pill, or by inhaling the compound through a breathing device. There are a number of different radioactive compounds used, depending on what part of the body or which organ system is being evaluated. Each test uses a specific compound and method of administration. Side effects or adverse reactions are very rare. The patient will not feel anything from the radioactive substance itself.

Scheduled outpatient procedures are available from 7:30 AM to 5:00 PM, Monday through Friday. Emergency services are available 24 hours a day. A radiologist is available 7am-8pm Monday through Friday and available "oncall" after hours and on weekends.

Ultrasound:
Ultrasound is the non-invasive imaging technique which uses high-frequency sound waves for visualizing the normal and abnormal anatomical structures of the body. Ultrasound was originally developed in the late 1950's and as technology has improved the images have acheived excellent detail and clarity.

The Ultrasound department at our inpatient facilities and our Outpatient Diagostic Center in College Station, offers a wide variety of exams including:

  • pregnancy, abdominal, renal (kidneys), pelvis
  • complete and transesophageal echos with color doppler
  • small body parts including breast, scrotal (testicular), thyroid (neck), prostate, optical, and neonatal heads # vascular studies including carotids, venous and arterial flow and graft evaluations

Scheduled outpatient procedures are available from 7:30 AM to 6:00 PM, Monday through Friday. Emergency services are available 24 hours a day. A radiologist is available 7am-8pm Monday through Friday and available "oncall" after hours and on weekends.

Women's Imaging Services:
Women's Imaging includes complete imaging services in digital mammography, stereotactic mammography, and bone densitometry.

The Women's Diagnostic Services Department located in Suite 325 of St. Joseph Professional Building, performs both diagnostic and screening mammograms and all invasive procedures relating to the Breast, i.e. Stereotatic breast biopsy, needle localizations, and galactograms.
