ICON Hospital recently added state of the art imaging equipment to better serve the Humble and surrounding communities. ICON offers fast, dependable services with accurate results.
The following is a list of some of our services:
X-Rays are a form of electromagnetic radiation, just like visible light. In the health care setting, an X-Ray machine sends individual X-Ray particles through the body. We provide various x-ray services.
CT (Computerized Tomography)
CT imaging, sometimes called a "CAT Scan", is an advanced imaging test that helps physicians diagnose and treat many medical conditions. CT Scans use a series of X-Ray views taken from different angles to produce multiple images of the inside of the body. A computer then joins these images together in cross-sectional and 3-D views of the area. CT Scans are very effective in viewing internal organs, bone, soft tissue and blood vessels to provide greater clarity than conventional X-Ray exams.
Ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to produce moving images of soft tissues of the body. It produces images of exceptionally high quality and allows physicians to visualize small differences in tissue characteristics, which is especially useful in the diagnosis of disease conditions. Ultrasound is painless and is considered one of the safest diagnostic tools available.
The ICON Wound Program offers many treatment options for patients with skin integrity problems such as burns, ostomies, non-healing wounds, post-surgical wound compli- cations, fistula management and decubitus ulcers. At ICON Hospital, we understand the hardships of these skin problems. Our approach to wound management combines the services of a dedicated Wound Ostomy Specialist, the expertise of our team of surgical specialists, nutrition protocols and access to the most effective advances in wound healing technology.
