Why Choose Us?
The latest technology, reliable results, compassionate care, and a highly qualified staff are all excellent reasons to choose Southwest Diagnostic Imaging Center for your imaging needs. But why settle for a great choice when you can have the very best? Here is what sets us apart from other imaging centers in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex:
Southwest Diagnostic Imaging Center's mission is to provide unsurpassed patient care, the most advanced diagnostic imaging technology, and the highest standards of quality.
No two patients are exactly alike. That is why Southwest Diagnostic Imaging Center tailors every exam to meet the specific needs of each individual patient. We gather clinical information about each patient prior to their appointment. The radiologist reviews the records and the referring physician's request to customize the exam or preventative screening that best treats that patient's symptoms based on their health history. Our exam studies are detailed and extensive, ensuring all health screenings are done correctly the first time. Because of this individual attention, physicians receive the best possible images, patients never pay for services they do not need, and few additional scans are ever required.
While some imaging centers in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex only offer one or two services, Southwest Diagnostic Imaging Center offers many - including Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Computed Tomography (CT), formerly known as a CAT Scan, Obstetric/Gynecological and General Ultrasound (Sonography), Digital Mammography (breast screening), General Radiology, and Bone Densitometry (DEXA) - all under one roof. Our long history in diagnostic imaging, ACR accreditation, multiple certifications, and affiliation with Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas has helped us earn preferred provider status with many insurance companies in the market today - and what's more, we can handle most pre-certifications on a "one-call-does-it-all" basis. Our Radiology Information System (RIS) tracks and provides all the necessary information for each patient from the time they first arrive at our imaging center, offering unparalleled convenience for physicians and their patients.
When selecting an imaging center, we believe that the way we treat our patients is just as important as the accuracy of the images and the qualifications of our staff. We understand the effects that stress and anxiety have on a patient's well-being, and our goal is always to make the best impression possible - whether we are creating an image of a patient's heart or helping to put their mind at ease. Our mission is to provide unsurpassed patient care, the most advanced diagnostic imaging technology, and the highest standards of quality.
Personal touches, such as refreshingly furnished changing areas and private waiting areas for diagnostic studies, can help patients feel more relaxed in our facilities. Family members or relatives will be allowed to accompany patients in exam rooms whenever possible. When necessary, sedation is available for MRIs and CTs, a service not offered by most imaging centers in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, but one that makes exams more comfortable for many of our patients.
If patients are surprised to discover our accommodating office hours, they are truly amazed to discover the efficiency of our operations. The ability to schedule an appointment for an Ultrasound, Mammogram, CT scan, MRI scan, or any other exam at a convenient time is great. To actually be seen at that time - well, it is nothing short of extraordinary. We know that scheduling and keeping appointments around a patient's schedule is an unusual concept in healthcare - but then again, we have never been content with being ordinary.
We understand the impact a prompt and accurate diagnosis has on the decisions our patients make. Through the speed of digital imaging, the days of waiting weeks for test results are over. With our Picture Archive and Communication System (PACS) and Caregate, a Web portal that allows authenticated users to access Southwest Diagnostic Imaging Center images, results can now be transmitted to referring physicians more quickly and easily than ever. These systems enable physicians to share patient information and improve the accuracy of diagnoses by comparing their studies, reports, and results with others in the network.
Southwest Diagnostic Imaging Center is pleased to offer the following quick and easy ways to access digital images: For patients and physicians, our PacsCube Solution System transfers images from our database to CD, allowing dynamic viewing. In addition, physicians may access the PACS database from their office computers using Caregate, or from one of the PACS clinical workstations located throughout Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas, as well as other Texas Health Resources (THR) affiliated hospitals.
