Radiology and Imaging Services in Texas

Exceptional Emergency Center is proud to provide state-of-the-art radiology and imaging services for patients throughout Texas. Our board-certified physicians can adeptly use CT scans, x-ray machines, and ultrasound machines, and they can also perform COLA-certified stat lab testing. We have locations in Fort Worth, Livingston, Brownsville, Sachse, Harlingen, Port Arthur, Beaumont, Amarillo, Orange, and Lubbock, TX to meet the urgent medical lab needs of you or a loved one. Each facility operates around the clock because we know medical emergencies do not only happen during daylight hours. If you have an emergency after your primary family doctor has closed his or her practice for the day, do not fret. Each of our 24-hour facilities has an attending physician available at all times, as well as highly-trained nurses and friendly staff, to address your situation. If you need medical or diagnostic imaging, visit one of our convenient locations.

We Can Use CT Scans to Evaluate Your Condition

The advanced technology at each of our Texas clinics includes state-of-the-art CT scans. This resource allows our physicians to scan your body to produce images of organs, bones, and other tissues in great detail. Such medical imaging can create pictures from many different angles to evaluate a plethora of conditions. If you suffer an injury from a fall, CT scans can detect bone or joint problems that may be contributing to your pain. The equipment can also help our team identify internal injuries or bleeding following an accident and the location of infections that are causing discomfort. Our radiology specialists will ensure your comfort during the scan, which can take as little as a few minutes or as long as a half-hour. Once complete, we will use the information to develop a treatment plan.

Exceptional Emergency Centers Feature X-Ray Machines

Among the most commonly utilized forms of medical imaging technology is the x-ray machine. Though it has been in use for decades, technology is continually advancing and improving, providing more clarity and depth as it does. Each Exceptional Emergency Center facility in Texas has modern x-ray machines to help diagnose, monitor, and treat a range of medical conditions. Most people think of using x-ray imaging to detect broken or dislocated bones, but their benefits extend far beyond that. Reasons our specialists use x-ray technology include:

  • Arthritis
  • Bone cancer
  • Breast tumors
  • Blocked blood vessels
  • Lung conditions
  • Digestive problems
  • Enlarged heart
  • Infections
  • Osteoporosis
  • Retrieving swallowed items

Our Team Uses Ultrasound Technology for Examinations

Another type of medical imaging technology we employ at Exceptional Emergency Center offices throughout Texas is ultrasound. Otherwise known as sonography, an ultrasound scan uses sound waves to produce internal images of your body. Ultrasounds differ from x-rays and CT scans because they do not use radiation. Many expecting mothers have ultrasounds during pregnancy to monitor their developing fetus. But ultrasounds are also used for patients who have pain, swelling, or concerns about internal organs, such as:

  • Bladder
  • Brain
  • Breasts
  • Gallbladder
  • Kidneys
  • Liver
  • Ovaries
  • Pancreas
  • Spleen
  • Testicles
  • Thyroid
  • Uterus

Our Labs Perform COLA-Certified Stat Testing

If you are suffering from an infection or illness that requires blood work or testing, Exceptional Emergency Center in Texas should immediately come to mind. Our highly-trained specialists are always present at each location to perform COLA-certified stat lab testing. Stat tests are time-sensitive and can provide vital information related to a patient’s treatment. Not all sudden illnesses or emergencies have an easily-recognizable cause. We can quickly perform blood tests to understand the reason behind a patient’s shortness of breath, confusion, fatigue, or other symptoms. Our COLA certification helps you rest assured that our testing facilities and practices comply with federal and state regulatory requirements. Most tests yield results within an hour. When time is of the essence and primary care offices are closed, Exceptional Emergency Center is standing by to help assess your condition using expert blood testing techniques.

COVID-19 TESTING UPDATE:

The Exceptional Emergency Room staff and physicians care about you and your loved ones. We are here 24/7 for all your emergency care needs.

  1. If you are experiencing fever, shortness of breath, chest pain, dizziness, weakness, numbness, sensory loss, or any other emergent medical problems, please call 911 or seek medical care immediately at your nearest Emergency Room.
  2. To provide the highest quality emergency medical care to our communities, we are directing all routine COVID testing to outpatient community resources.
  3. Testing through local resources, including your primary care doctor, urgent care, walk-in clinic, or local health department, is appropriate under the following circumstances:
    1. If you have been exposed to a person known to have COVID, and you do not have symptoms, we recommend that you self-quarantine at home and seek testing 4-5 days after exposure. It often takes this long for the infection to be detected by routine lab testing.
    2. If you have no symptoms or very mild symptoms, outpatient testing is also typically appropriate.
    3. Please follow this link for local COVID testing resources.
  4. If you have tested negative, you should still self-quarantine for 14 days from the day of suspected exposure as it can take anywhere from 2-14 days to come down with symptoms of this infection.
  5. Please kindly limit your phone time with our Emergency Rooms as the phone lines are needed to communicate with other health care entities and to provide patients their test results. Thank you for your understanding during this trying time.
