Care ProvidedUT Medicine Radiology takes pride in providing quality care. If you have any questions or suggestions to help us improve our service, please feel free to contact Mary Lou Jew, our Radiology Services Director at 450-6000.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging is an imaging device that uses a magnetic field to create images of any part of the body. Some scans require an injection of an IV contrast material. The length of the exam can take anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour per procedure depending on the exam ordered. NO types of metal, keys, credit cards, watches, jewelry, coins, pacemakers and certain types of surgical implants are permitted in the MRI room at anytime. If you have problems with claustrophobia, please discuss this with your physician prior to your scan. Please wear clothing that is free of metal buttons and zippers. Exams are scheduled Monday-Friday 7:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. and Saturday 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Please call the radiology department for scheduling and instructions at (210) 450-6000.

Computed Tomography (CT)
We have a 64 Slice CT scanner that provides superior and faster diagnostic information with less radiation and higher resolution resulting in superior image quality and greater diagnostic confidence. Some CT scans require special preps; ex: NPO, oral contrast, pre-medication if allergic to iodine. Please call the radiology department for scheduling and instructions at (210) 450-6000. Exams are scheduled Monday-Friday 8:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.

Ultrasound imaging, also called ultrasound scanning or sonography,involves exposing part of the body to high-frequency sound waves to produce pictures of the inside of the body. Ultrasound exams do not use ionizing radiation (as used in x-rays). Because ultrasound images are captured in real-time, they can show the structure and movement of the body's internal organs, as well as blood flowing through blood vessels.

Bone Densitometry, also known as DXA scan is used to determine bone mineral density in patients. This is used in diagnosing osteoporosis, a disease that affects millions of Americans, primarily postmenopausal women. DXA also determines fracture risk by measuring sites in the body that are most common for adult fractures. The GE Lunar Prodigy Advance is a very safe, state of the art, low dose x-ray machine that produces images of the spine, hips, forearms, or even the whole body. The painless test takes only a few minutes. Please call the radiology department for scheduling and instructions at (210) 450-6000. Exams are scheduled Monday-Friday in the afternoons.
