At Houston Metro Urology we provide imaging services that complement the specialty of urology. For those conditions that urologists treat, the imaging modalities of a CT Scan, Ultrasound, and Dexa Scan provide the best information necessary in order to make a diagnosis; one that can promptly be assessed and treated. Our Imaging Center is within our Cancer Center, which is located at 4223 Richmond Avenue; just inside Loop 610. Our team of board certified radiologists, who are located on site, are constantly, throughout each day, interpreting the studies; providing our urologists with immediate feedback, both verbal and written, as to their findings. The close collaboration of the physician team only serves to address the needs of our patients in a more timely manner.
Radiation Dose Information
Recently there have been concerns regarding the amount of radiation that individuals receive while undergoing CT Scans. Perhaps you have read an article or seen a television special addressing radiation dosage. We can assure you that we are concerned about our patients’ safety and have taken pro-active steps to insure that the appropriate safety measures are in place. Our radiologists and radiation physicists have reviewed our protocols and the CT imaging done here at Houston Metro Urology operates below the dose limits set forth by the American College of Radiology (ACR). Our facility is also accredited by the ACR and we take pride in running our facility well within all of the guidelines set forth.
Additionally, our team of board certified radiologists, who are present in the facility, provide up to the minute imaging interpretation and verbal collaboration with our urologists. Our main focus is patient care and our imaging center exists to make certain that comprehensive urological care is available to all of our patients.
