High Field (1.5 Tesla) MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging)
The GE Horizon Echospeed 1.5 Tesla produces high quality imaging and allows for faster imaging and decreased time in the machine. The phased array coils are designed like multiple antennas connected together; the coils increase the area and depth of the image.
Other MRI services include magnetic resonance angiography and diffusion scanning. MRA, Magnetic Resonance Angiography, services image blood vessels and can get screenings of carotids, aorta, etc. Diffusion scanning, used predominantly in the brain, enables radiologists to detect cerebrovascular accident/stroke early on in the diagnosis.
CAD (Computer Aided Detection) Mammography
In 2004, Texas Health Cleburne implemented a "Computer Aided Detection" software, ImageChecker® in the radiology department. The assistance of the software has provided a leap in technology for breast cancer detection.
The ImageChecker® CAD system from R2 Technology is the first FDA-approved computer-aided detection system for screening and full view diagnostic mammograms. The pattern recognition software identifies characteristics in medical images associated with cancer and marks them for radiologists. This system has the potential to detect cancers up to two years earlier, helping to reduce the mortality rate of women with breast cancer.
According to the American Cancer Society, an estimated 215,990 women in the U.S. will be diagnosed with breast cancer; 40,110 will die. Of those, 12,980 women will be from Texas, according to the Cancer Therapy Research Center.
Our mammographers have 98 years of combined experience. The hospital successfully passed inspection and received its certification from the Bureau of Radiology Control.
