The UTMB Radiology Imaging Center in Pearland recently celebrated its opening with a ribbon cutting ceremony.
Dr. Garland Anderson, UTMB executive vice president, provost and dean of the School of Medicine, was joined by members of the Pearland Chamber of Commerce in marking the grand opening of the state-of-the-art center, located at 1635 Broadway (FM 518) near Dixie Farm Road.
The new Radiology Imaging Center offers convenient and comprehensive outpatient imaging with an experienced radiologist on site, same-day availability and reports available within 24 hours. The center uses the latest imaging equipment, including 1.5T open magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), 64-slice computed tomography (CT), digital mammography, bone density scanners and ultrasound.
Radiology services available include pediatric, musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, abdominal/body, breast and neuroradiology.
“An on-site radiologist is a great resource for patients and clinicians,” said Alejandro Rojas-Sosa, UTMB administrator for radiology and radiation oncology. “It’s a great convenience for the patient and clinician in the case of any significant issue or finding.”
UTMB’s department of radiology is accredited by the American College of Radiology in MRI, CT and Ultrasound.
The center complements the newly opened Radiology Imaging Center at Victory Lakes in League City, offering patients more convenience.
