We’re ahead of the curve in radiation safety.
2008, we have been increasing awareness among physicians and technologists on the
need to decrease radiation doses – especially during CT scans - to patients. We
have standardized our protocols, paying special attention to pediatric
Each Memorial Hermann Imaging Center is accredited
by the American College of Radiology, which shows patients and physicians that
our facilities have undergone a rigorous review process and meet nationally
accepted standards of care.
radiologists interpreting the CT images work closely with physicists,
technologists and other physicians to ensure that all exams are done with
the least possible exposure to radiation without compromising the diagnostic
quality of the image.
educated and credentialed technologists use the ALARA (As Low As Reasonable Achievable) method when providing doctors with quality images
while keeping radiation doses low.
physicists are experienced in maintaining high quality images while
reducing radiation dose to patients.
