ACR-accredited diagnostic imaging center, Green Oak Diagnostics has introduced the city’s first ultra-low dose Computed Axial Tomography machine in the Houston area outside of the Medical Center, shifting the paradigm in patient imaging.
Commonly referred to as CT or CAT scans, Computed Tomography Scans are the standard physician’s tool for locating and diagnosing abnormalities, diseases and injuries within the human body. Houston’s Green Oak Diagnostics can now perform CT scans with radiation exposure reduced by as much as 70% of a typical traditional CT machine, depending on the part of the body.
“Fast, painless and non-invasive, this new technology allows us to perform CT scans with radiation exposure reduced by unprecedented levels,” said Green Oak Diagnostics COO Gracie deLeon. “While we stay a leader on the forefront of technology, we equally pride ourselves in providing the most comfortable patient experience. And we hope to leverage this competitive advantage to set a standard for best practices in safe imaging,” she added.
“This low dose CT technology produces the same high quality results without image compromise, at a fraction of the radiation level. This fact becomes even more important in light of studies published to the American Archives of Internal Medicine reporting that as many as 29,000 cases of cancer could be directly correlated to repeated traditional CT radiation exposure,” says Dr. H. B. Spangler, Medical Director of Green Oak Diagnostics. “We continue to help bring ongoing awareness to safe imaging and setting new standards in the community.”
