Diagnostic Imaging Services in Dallas
Southwest Diagnostic Imaging Center provides radiology services to patients throughout the Dallas/Fort Worth area Our services include MRI scans, CT scans, X-rays, ultrasounds, mammograms and more. Call (214) 345-6905 to schedule an appointment.
Four MRI scanners OPEN 7 days a week to better serve our patients. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) uses a strong magnetic field and radiofrequency pulses to provide clear and detailed diagnostic images of internal body organs and tissues.
Two state-of-the-art low dose, 64 slice CT scanners open Monday – Saturday. Computed Tomography (CT), formerly known as a CAT scan, is a radiology technique uses X-ray and computer equipment to produce cross-sectional images of body structures, tissues, and organs.
Automated Breast Ultrasound
While mammograms are effective in detecting most breast cancer, sometimes women have dense breast tissue that can render mammography less useful. Fortunately, there are other diagnostic imaging tools that can be used to help detect breast cancer in women that are asymptomatic for breast cancer.
Walk-ins welcome with a doctors order. Express Check-in/out available. X-ray is the oldest and most frequently used form of medical imaging. At SWDIC, we perform digital X-ray imaging, which is the “gold standard” of today’s medical imaging practices.
Five spacious sono-rooms for your comfort and ease of exam efficiency. Ultrasound imaging (also called Sonography) is a method of obtaining diagnostic images from inside the human body through the use of high-frequency sound waves.
Our NEW PET/CT facility is now open at the Texas Health Cancer Center. Positron Emission Tomography (also known as PET/CT) is a nuclear medical exam that produces a three-dimensional image of functional processes in the body.
Two digital scanners with late evening and Saturday appointments available. Mammography (also known as a mammogram procedure) is the examination of a breast using low-dose X-rays. Most medical experts agree that successful treatment of breast cancer is often linked to early diagnosis, and mammography is considered the most effective tool for early breast tumor detection.
Dual-Energy X-ray Absorptiometry (DEXA) is a tool used for measuring bone density. DEXA calculates Bone Mineral Density (BMD), a measurement used to estimate bone strength and the likelihood of breakage and/or fracture. Our DEXA scanner offers more than just Bone Density testing it also offers Body Fat Analysis (BFA).
Thyroid FNA Analysis
SWDIC uses Thyroid FNA (Fine Needle Aspiration) Analysis to determine whether a lump (nodule) in your thyroid gland is likely to be benign or malignant (cancerous). Although most thyroid nodules are benign, the only way to be sure is to look closely at the cells that make up your nodule.
