Sophisticated technology and clinical expertise give Methodist Hospitals highly accurate diagnostic capabilities. Our radiologists and clinicians have received advanced education and certifications, and provide comprehensive, interventional, therapeutic and consultative access to physicians and their patients.
Diagnostic services include:
Radioimaging providing superior three-dimensional studies of internal organs and structures; enhanced visuals of arteries and pulmonary studies, in minutes.
A noninvasive imaging technique, MRI is an invaluable tool in the early diagnosis and evaluation of a broad range of conditions.
A PET scan is a high energy nuclear medicine imaging technique that measures important body functions, producing a three-dimensional image. It is most often used for medical imaging of tumors and the search for metastases in the early diagnosis and staging of cancer.
Ultrasound provides the most efficient and effective means of pre- and post-procedure planning. It is key to providing visualization for accurate placement of implant needles and seeds required for optimal treatment in High Dose Rate (HDR) Brachytherapy.
