Diagnostic Imaging Technology at Texas Health Flower Mound
The Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Imaging Center offers several diagnostic imaging services accessible to both medical professionals and the general public.
- MRI - Magnetic Resonance Imaging (1.5 Tesla) - MRI is a non-invasive imaging technology that produces three dimensional detailed anatomical images without the use of damaging radiation. It is often used for disease detection, diagnosis, and treatment monitoring. It is based on sophisticated technology that excites and detects the change in the direction of the rotational axis of protons found in the water that makes up living tissues.
- CT Scan - Computed Tomography (64 slice/16 Slice) - Computed tomography (CT) of the body uses sophisticated x-ray technology to help detect a variety of diseases and conditions. CT scanning is fast, painless, noninvasive and accurate. In emergency cases, it can reveal internal injuries and bleeding quickly enough to help save lives.
- CT - Guided Procedures - A CT-guided a procedure by which a physician uses computed tomography (CT) scanning to guide an instrument during a procedure.
- General Nuclear Imaging Studies - Nuclear medicine imaging is a method of producing images by detecting radiation from different parts of the body after a radioactive tracer is given to the patient. The images are digitally generated on a computer and transferred to a nuclear medicine physician, who interprets the images to make a diagnosis.
- Cardiac Nuclear Imaging - Cardiac nuclear medicine imaging evaluates the heart for coronary artery disease and cardiomyopathy (diseases of the heart muscle). It also may be used to help determine whether the heart has been damaged by chemotherapy or radiotherapy.
- Ultrasound – General - Ultrasound imaging uses sound waves to produce pictures of the inside of the body. It is used to help diagnose the causes of pain, swelling and infection in the body's internal organs and to examine a baby in pregnant women and the brain and hips in infants. It's also used to help guide biopsies, diagnose heart conditions, and assess damage after a heart attack. Ultrasound is safe, noninvasive, and does not use ionizing radiation.
- Ultrasound - Guided Procedures - A Ultrasound-guided a procedure by which a physician uses ultrasound to guide an instrument during a procedure.
- General Diagnostic Radiology - Diagnostic radiology is a medical specialisation that involves undertaking a range of imaging procedures to obtain images of the inside of the body. The diagnostic radiologist then carefully interprets these images todiagnose illness and injury. ... MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) scans.
- Fluoroscopy - The study of moving body structures--similar to an X-ray "movie." A continuous X-ray beam is passed through the body part being examined. The beam is transmitted to a TV-like monitor so that the body part and its motion can be seen in detail. Fluoroscopy, as an imaging tool, enables physicians to look at many body systems, including the skeletal, digestive, urinary, respiratory, and reproductive systems.
- Interventional Radiology - "Interventional Radiology" (IR) refers to a range of techniques which rely on the use radiological image guidance (X-ray fluoroscopy, ultrasound, computed tomography [CT] or magnetic resonance imaging [MRI]) to precisely target therapy. Most IR treatments are minimally invasive alternatives to open and laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery.
- Cardio and Pulmonary Testing - Clinical imaging exams of both the respiratory and cardiovascular systems using advanced imaging modalities, such as detailed CTA and CT exams.
- Angiography Studies - Imaging procedures that identifies narrowing of the coronary arteries compared to traditional coronary angiogram.
Our Approach to Medical Imaging
Texas Health Presbyterian is committed to providing the highest level of medical imaging services possible. In addition to board-certified radiologists, the hospital also has a highly experienced and tenured imaging specific staff that provides quality services with a personal touch.

Benefits of Advanced Technology
Diagnostic imaging provides a number of significant benefits over traditional physical examinations. Medical scans enable Doctors to make more accurate diagnoses and to develop a more effective treatment approach.
Radiology technology also reduces the costs of diagnosis and healthcare. By enabling doctors to make more accurate diagnoses, these and other imaging technologies make it possible to formulate a more efficient course of treatment – saving both time, resources and money.
