“I’ve had a lot of MRIs (due to an ongoing condition), and Touchstone Imaging Plano is the best place I’ve ever been! The facility is clean and bright, and the staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. I went during COVID precautions, and I felt completely safe at every point. They are being very fastidious and they care about your health. Eric at the front desk is probably the best front desk person to ever live; he is kind, friendly, and patient. I even called him on a separate occasion with some questions and he was happy to speak with me. What a gem! My MRI technician was also upbeat and encouraging, and as far as MRIs go, it was a fairly pleasant experience. This entire operation is patient-oriented, trustworthy, and professional. I am very impressed and won’t go anywhere else now!” Sunny W.
This Open Bore 3T MRI produces a high-powered magnetic field. Because they are the highest-powered MRI machines, they require special considerations or protocols to fulfill certain diagnostic criteria for the referring physician. 3T MRI scanners produce clear images that can be conducted quicker. 3T MRIs are ideal for imaging small bones, breast tissue, musculoskeletal structures, spine, and vascular flow. Its large 70cm open bore enhances patient comfort to reach a wider range of patients including larger bodies and those who struggle with claustrophobia.
A Wide Bore MRI scanner is designed to benefit claustrophobic patients, or patients that simply do not feel comfortable in a traditional MRI machine. The 1.5T has half the teslas of a 3T MRI machine making them great for visualizing the brain or abdomen, where artifact is more likely to occur and is safer for those who have implanted devices — joints, pacemakers, stents, etc. — or other metal in their body, including bullets or shrapnel.
A CT scan, also known as a CAT scan or Computed Tomography, is a special kind of X-ray that takes pictures of a cross-section of a part of your body. CT scan images provide more detailed information than traditional X-rays are able to. CT scans are used to quickly examine people who may have internal injuries and may be used to observe internal organs and tissues of the body to diagnose disease or injury.
Ultrasound is a safe and painless procedure that is used to produce images of the inside of the body using sound waves. Ultrasound imaging, also called ultrasound scanning or sonography, involves the use of a small transducer (probe) and ultrasound gel placed directly on the skin. Ultrasounds are useful to scan internal organs, fetuses, and breast tissue.
An x-ray (radiograph) is a quick, painless medical test that helps physicians diagnose and treat medical conditions. Radiography involves exposing a part of the body to a small dose of ionizing radiation called electromagnetic waves. The various body tissues absorb the radiation differently, creating different shades in an image to produce pictures of the inside of the body. Calcium in the bones absorbs radiation the most, so bones appear bright white while soft tissues absorb less and look gray. Air absorbs the least, so lungs and empty spaces appear black. X-rays are great for looking for broken bones or scarring in the lungs.
Fluoroscopy uses injected contrast dye and an X-Ray machine to take a continuous series of X-rays instead of individual snapshots. It is most commonly used to evaluate parts of your body that are moving in order to create a short video of your body system in motion. It is particularly useful for observing the digestive, urinary, respiratory, and reproductive systems and their functioning.
