The Imaging/Radiology department at Texas Health Harris Methodist
Hospital Hurst-Euless-Bedford offers a wide variety of advanced
diagnostic services and is accredited by the American College of
Radiology in Computed Tomography (CT), Nuclear Medicine and
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI).
Highlights of equipment include:
- 64-slice GE Light Speed® CT scanner with ASiR technology,
which can reduce your radiation dose during a CT scan by as much
as 40 percent. The scanner produces up to 64 cross-sectional
images ("slices") that are reconstructed to form a complete,
precise image at a lower dose of radiation.
- GE Signa Excite 1.5 Tesla HD MRI, which provides faster scan
times and extremely high resolution images. MRI is a medical
imaging technique used in radiology to visualize detailed
internal structures. Unlike traditional X-rays, MRI uses no
radiation. Instead it uses a powerful magnetic field to align
protons in the body and radio frequency fields to construct an
- GE Infinia camera with nuclear diagnostic imaging studies.
Nuclear medicine is the imaging of the body using nuclear
pharmaceuticals to create a picture. Tests can vary in length,
and most tests require an injection or ingestion of some kind.
The most common nuclear medicine studies performed are bone
scans, lung scans, gallbladder, kidney, and thyroid exams.
- Two GE Logic 9 Ultrasound units with two-dimensional and
color Doppler imaging capabilities. During the ultrasound
examination, a transducer is used to view the target organ and
produce pictures for study. The transducer emits sound and
detects the returning echoes.
- Picture Archiving and Communications System (PACS) and Voice
Recognition Dictation system. These advanced electronic
diagnostic imaging systems allow physicians to remotely access
and review images and reports online, which can lead to improved
- Electronic Medical Record (CareConnect) is a computerized
record of patient health information generated by one or more
visits to our facility. The immediate access to all of your
medical records allows us to provide you with the highest quality
To provide patients with inclusive radiological care, registered
and licensed health care professionals administer diagnostic
tests under the supervision of board-certified Radiologists.
Texas Health HEB also offers Interventional
Texas Health HEB is proud to feature the 64-slice
GE Light Speed® CT scanner with ASiRTM technology. This cutting
edge technology can reduce your exposure to radiation during a CT
scan by up to 40 percent.
This configured system offers exceptional image quality, giving
your physician the performance they need for confident patient
diagnoses. The hardware and software advances in this configured
system provide enhanced clinical advantages, exceptional image
quality, lower radiation dose levels, and optimal coverage. It is
ideal for whole-body imaging and neurological imaging needs.
If your physician has ordered a CT scan for you, ask about having
your procedure done on the low-dose 64-slice GE Light Speed® CT
scanner with ASiRTM technology available at Texas Health HEB.
