Corpus Christi outpatient imaging services

Our imaging centers are equipped with advanced imaging tools and technology that give your physician a better view of what is happening in your body.

Imaging is used in every field of medicine and can be used to diagnose and treat people with back and neck pain, breast cancer, endometriosis, gastrointestinal disorders, heart disease, lung cancer, orthopedic injuries and vascular disease.

We offer a comprehensive suite of specialty imaging services, including:

  • Breast MRI and breast ultrasound
  • Bronchoscopy: An endoscopy exam to look at the airways in your lungs.
  • Computed tomography (CT) scan: A CT scan is an X-ray technique that makes 2-dimensional slices or cross-sectional images of your body. CT scans can diagnose possibly life-threatening conditions such as hemorrhage, blood clots or cancer.
  • Digital mammography, including 3D mammography
  • Electrocardiography (ECG or EKG): One of the simplest and fastest tests used to evaluate the heart by measuring its electrical activity. It can detect heart attacks and heart rhythm problems.
  • Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) with a 6000-pixel probe: Combining X-rays and upper GI endoscopy, ERCP is used to diagnose and treat problems of the bile, pancreas, gallbladder and liver.
  • Endoscopic ultrasound: An endoscope, or thin tube with a tiny camera attached, is guided through your digestive system to take detailed images of the digestive tract and surrounding organs and tissues, including the lungs, pancreas, gall bladder, liver and lymph nodes.
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI): This non-invasive imaging test uses powerful magnets and radio waves to create detailed images of nearly every internal structure inside the body, including organs, blood vessels, muscles and bones.
  • Ultrasound: Ultrasound scans use high-frequency sound waves to make pictures of organs, tissues and other structures inside your body. They can be used to monitor the health and development of an unborn baby, to guide certain biopsy procedures and to evaluate conditions like breast tumors and gallbladder disease.
  • X-ray: It is the oldest and most common form of imaging. This painless technique uses electromagnetic energy beams to take pictures of organs, bones and internal tissues. X-rays are used for many reasons, including diagnosing fractures, infections, or gastrointestinal problems.
