Advanced Imaging Services

Texas Health Harris Methodist Outpatient Center Burleson offers an array of advanced imaging services for your diagnostic needs, including:

Before your appointment, be sure to review our Things to Know.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
MRI studies are exams that allow physicians to obtain detailed images of any part of the body without the use of x-rays. MRI uses a large magnet, radio waves, and a computer to create images. The procedure is safe and painless.

Texas Health Burleson offers Hitachi Oasis High-Field Open MRI — the only high-field open MRI in the Tarrant/Johnson county region. Open MRI is beneficial for those who experience claustrophobia and for children as its open design allows for unobstructed views of the technologist, and room to see around you throughout the exam.

Preparing for your MRI Exam
Prior to your MRI exam, you may engage in your daily routine and take your usual medications. Most patients eat and drink as usual the day of the exam, but in some instances you may be asked to fast for a few hours prior. Depending on the exam, you may be asked to change into a patient gown to eliminate metal objects such as zippers, buckles, and metallic thread that will interfere with the magnet. Glasses, hairpins, watches, and jewelry will need to be removed. We encourage you to leave your valuables at home or with a family member, as valuables cannot be taken inside the exam room.

Metal and the MRI
Metal objects can drastically affect MRI test results. If you have a pacemaker, surgical clips, prosthesis, metal implants, metal fragments or any other metal objects in your body, it is imperative that you inform your doctor or technologist performing your study.

Computed Tomography (CT)

Computed Tomography (CT)
Computed Tomography (CT)
A CT scan is a test combining x-rays with a computer to create images that appear as "slices" or cross sections of the body.  The result is a detailed group of images that help diagnose problems with soft tissue, organs, and bones.

Preparations for your CT study may vary depending on the area of the body to be scanned. You may be asked to fast for four hours before the exam. When you arrive for your appointment, you may be asked to drink contrast half an hour or an hour prior to your procedure if you are having an abdominal or pelvic CT study.

Flouroscopy
This imaging technique uses very low doses of radiation to provide physicians a clear image of various body structures.

Please ask your physician for information and preparation related to your procedure. You may be asked to fast prior to your exam or to arrive early for contrast preparation.

  • Results: Your study will be interpreted by a board-certified radiologist, who will give the report to your doctor. Your doctor will discuss the results of the imaging study/ exam with you. Unless your doctor instructs you otherwise, you may resume normal diet and activities after your scan/exam.
  • The Day of the Imaging Study: Unless otherwise specified by your physician, please plan to arrive at Texas Health Burleson 15 to 20 minutes prior to your study. This will allow you to get comfortable and take care of a few remaining details. During this time, you will be asked to complete your admission paperwork, sign consent forms, and meet with a technologist to complete an initial questionnaire.
