  • ULTRASOUND Abilene, TX | West Texas Health

    ULTRASOUND IN ABILENE Ultrasound imaging is a safe and effective means of evaluating internal organs. Also called sonography, this imaging method allows physicians to high-resolution images of internal organs to aid in the diagnosis of a range of medical conditions, from gall stones to breast cancer. It is also the most common imaging method for pregnant patients to track the health and development of the unborn baby and to assess symptoms experienced in pregnancy. Ultrasound is uniquely valuable in evaluating causes of gynecological symptoms ranging from abnormal uterine bleeding to pelvic pain and menstrual disorders. At West Texas Health, we are proud to offer medical ultrasound exams performed by experienced technologists and interpreted by expert Breast and Gynecological Imaging doctors. ​ ​ What to Expect During Your Visit ​ Every ultrasound exam is conducted in a comfortable facility. Depending on the type of and reason for your ultrasound, the exam can take between 20 and 60 minutes. A water-based gel is spread over the body area to be examined, and then the sonographer moves a wand-like device over the skin. This device bounces harmless sound waves off the body's internal structures and picks them back up to create images. The entire process is painless, and it is safe for patients of all ages. ​ ​ When to Schedule a Breast Ultrasound ​ We also are happy to work with patients who need a breast ultrasound as part of their breast cancer screening regimen. A breast ultrasound is often needed when your physician needs imaging to determine if a growth in the breast is a fluid-filled cyst or a solid breast tumor. Ultrasound features help the Breast Imaging specialists to determine if a biopsy of a breast lump is needed. As breast ultrasounds do not expose patients to radiation, they are often recommended for patients who need breast cancer screening while under 30 years old. Following the ultrasound results, further steps can then be explored between you and your physician. ​ Why Choose West Texas Health for Ultrasounds ​ For over 50 years, West Texas Health has been a key part of the Abilene community.

Call Now Comprehensive X-ray Exams for the Whole Family West Texas Health is committed to providing expert care across a range of conditions and situations. Our X-ray technologists and staff have extensive training and expertise in conducting safe, effective X-ray imaging. If you are needing an X-ray near you in Abilene, the health care team at West Texas Health is here for you. ​ What Are X-rays? ​ X-rays serve as one of the most useful forms of medical imaging. They use a form of electromagnetic radiation that can pass through most objects. This property allows X-ray technologists to generate imaging of many of the body's inner tissues and structures, such as bones. For example, a back X-ray can quickly determine if a disc is damaged or misaligned. An X-ray machine sends a safe amount of this radiation through the part of the body to be imaged. Some of these X-rays are absorbed by the body's tissues, while others pass through and are absorbed by a special surface. Images are then generated based on the X-rays that pass through the body. Healthcare providers then can view the resulting images to evaluate conditions and provide diagnoses if applicable. ​ The entire process is quick and painless, with the X-rays passing through the body without any sensation on the part of the patient. We use precise technology, so only the area of concern will be imaged. For example, a hand X-ray will only image the bones in the hand, with the rest of your body protected ​ Common Types of X-rays ​ Gener al & Routine X-rays : In our non-emergency cases, X-rays can be generally used for specific diagnostic situations. Bone X-rays : Targeted exam to look for breaks or fractures. Back X-ray​ Neck X-ray Hand X-ray Knee X-ray Shoulder X-ray ​​ ​​ Chest X-ray: Examines the heart, lungs, and skeletal structures of the chest (e.g., ribs) Mammogram: Exam for evaluating health of breast tissue Bone Density: Exam for evaluating bone strength ​ When to Have an X-ray ​ X-ray imaging is only ordered when patients have a suspected condition that requires imaging for diagnosis or treatment. In most cases, X-rays are used to examine potential breaks or fractures in the bones, but they can also detect some issues in soft tissues, such as your organs. For example, X-rays are useful in detecting masses or tumors on organs (via an abdominal or chest X-ray). ​ If you have sustained any physical injury, an X-ray might be ordered. Hand X-rays and neck X-rays are highly common, as even less traumatic damage to these areas can result in fractures or breaks that need to be caught. General or routine X-rays can be part of an overall plan for screening for conditions for select patients. Not everyone needs a routine X-ray regimen, but patients with even low or mild risk for certain conditions may benefit from routine X-rays. Are X-rays Safe? ​ Safety and patient well-being are always of utmost concern at West Texas Health. While X-rays do emit and use radiation, the risks are minimal when imaging is performed by an experienced technologist. Most patients will only have a handful of X-rays throughout their lives, which tends to produce only minimal radiation exposure within safe limits. In fact, we are exposed to radiation continuously every day, a nd the amount of radiation exposure in an X-ray is only about the same as 10 days of routine natural exposure. ​ Pregnant patients and their developing babies can also safely have X-ray imaging, as long as the abdomen and pelvis are not exposed. If these areas require imaging, then your healthcare provider may order a different imaging modality (e.g., an ultrasound). ​ Preparing for an X-ray ​ Your technologist will provide complete instructions before you have your X-ray, but it is helpful to know a few things in advance about preparing for your visit. Avoid skin products (e.g., lotions, creams) Take off any metal or electronic objects Dress in comforta bl e clothes ​ Why Choose West Texas Health for General X-Rays? ​ West Texas Health has dozens of qualified physicians on our staff, each providing quality health care to our patients.
