Imaging CenterNew Caney, TX
Treating an injury or illness with at-home remedies may work for minor health issues, but it will not work for serious ones. By seeking professional medical care, you can receive a professional examination of your body to measure the extent of the health issues. In order to do so, we will need to take images of the internal systems in the body. An imaging center has physicians that can use medical technology to take digital images of one’s body.
Imaging center services are offered at Texas Urgent Care & Imaging Center in New Caney and surrounding areas. By offering urgent care with an imaging center in the office, our patients do not need to go to a separate facility to receive X-rays or CT scans as part of treatment. With diagnostic imaging, we can get a more precise and detailed view of the patient’s body to enhance the treatment.
If you need urgent care treatment or are unsure of what is causing you pain, visit us or call to learn more about how we can help.

At Texas Urgent Care & Imaging Center, we offer three main forms of diagnostic imaging services including X-rays, CT scans . These allow us to help enhance our treatment of patients by gaining a more detailed view of their body, health and injury.
Taking X-rays is generally a quick and painless process that allows us to take still images of the structures in the body. X-ray beams cannot pass through bone or metal, which is why these show up on an X-ray image much more clearly than anything else in the body. With X-rays, we can examine the body for various conditions, such as:
Also known as a computerized tomography scan, CT scans take a variety of X-rays at different angles around the body. The computer processes the images to create a cross-selected set of images of the body. With CT scans, we can:
A CT scan is especially effective following a car accident for signs of internal injuries. With a CT scan, we can plan a customized treatment approach for the patient.
A diagnostic ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves that produce images of the body. Also known as a sonography, this procedure involves placing a special gel on the area of the body before running a small tool over said area. The soundwaves are harmless, and this procedure will go fairly quickly. With an ultrasound, we can:
