With our 3D/4D Ultrasound Equipment, we are able to provide the first pictures of babies to their mothers. By providing high quality, clear images, we do everything we can to make the first pictures of your baby as perfect as your baby.
An Echo-Doppler is an ultrasound that uses a small, hand-held microphone to send sound waves into the body. The sound waves are recorded, converted to moving pictures on a monitor and then measured. The measurements help your doctor determine how your blood is flowing through your heart, whether any of the valves of your heart are having issues, and whether there are any blockages that are preventing blood from flowing well. We are proud to work in conjunction with The Heart Place to provide you and your doctor with interpretations of our exams.
X-Ray technology allows your doctor to see through your tissue to your bones. X-Rays help your doctor determine whether you have a broken bone, a cavity or whether your child has swallowed a foreign object. An X-Ray camera uses the same film as a regular camera but the special X-Ray light sets off a chemical reaction that creates the images of your bones.
True Medical Imaging is the only facility in the Coastal Bend to offer the Upright Positional Open M.R.I. Our M.R.I. offers patients a more comfortable imaging experience and provides doctors with the best quality, most accurate images possible to assist in their diagnosis. Children may even be accompanied by their parents during the M.R.I. scanning process and our M.R.I. can scan adults up to 500 lbs.
A stress electrocardiogram (“EKG” or “ECG”) is a test that allows your doctor to check for changes in your heart while your heart is under stress such as exercise. Sometimes abnormalities can only be seen when your heart is under stress. Your heart is a muscle and, when you exercise, your heart works harder than it does when you are resting. A stress EKG translates your heart’s electrical activity into line tracings on paper. The spikes and dips can then be read by a cardiologist to find abnormalities. We are proud to work with The Heart Place to provide your doctor with interpretations of our exams.
CT scanning, sometimes called CAT scanning, is a non-invasive scan that helps your doctor diagnose and treat various medical conditions. A CT scan combines x-ray equipment with computers to produce multiple images, or pictures, of the inside of the body. Our CT scanner is a 16-slice machine. That means that is can provide 16 sections of each image it takes. CT scans of organs, bones, tissue and blood vessels can help your doctor by revealing more details than a traditional x-ray is able to reveal.
We offer a Bone Mineral Density. This exam is extremely helpful for doctors to check for osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is a disease when the bones become brittle and fragile. It especially affects women and the elderly. This test takes only moments and shows how much calcium and other minerals are in the bones.
GE 1.5 Tesla MRI offers an alternative to our Upright MRI. This high field strength MRI is reliable, convenient, and time-efficient.
