Radiology Services

The diagnostic radiology services offered at Texas Health Allen include radiographic procedures that range from routine chest X-rays to more complicated procedures, such as:

  • X-Ray: Also called radiography, involves exposing a part of the body to a small dose of ionizing radiation to produce pictures of the inside of the body. X-rays are the oldest and most frequently used form of medical imaging, and chest X-rays are among the most common diagnostic x-ray examination performed
  • Arthrography: Used to evaluate the structure and function of a joint and determine the possible need for treatment, which may include surgery
  • Intravenous pyelography (IVP): Used to examine the urinary tract including the kidneys, ureters and bladder
  • Barium studies/Upper GI series: Used to examine the gastrointestinal (GI) system, the esophagus, stomach, small bowel and large bowel [link to Barium Enema Examination form]
  • Myelography: Used to detect abnormalities of the spinal canal, cord and nerve roots
  • Lumbar punctures: Used to help detect tumors, or locate areas of inflammation

The department has one dedicated fluoroscopy room and two additional routine X-ray rooms. In addition, X-rays can be taken during surgical procedures, using a C-Arm.
