Sophisticated Technology

Spine Center patients benefit from Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital’s sophisticated diagnostic and therapeutic technology and state-of-the-art systems for patient comfort and safety.

Three whole body 3-Tesla MRI scanners—the industry’s most powerful technology typically found only in the nation’s top academic medical centers — provide state-of- the-art image resolution and motion correction while reducing exam times.

Four CT scanners, two of which are 64-slice scanners and are the first units of their type in the Houston area, allow more detailed views and the ability to complete two neurological exams with only one contrast injection.

Advanced technology is just part of the picture. Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital has dedicated fellowship trained neuroradiologists who are specially trained to diagnose spine and neck problems and provide sensitive, compassionate care. In addition, our technologists and radiologists hold the most recent certifications and licenses and are involved in continuing education.

State-of-the-Art Operating Rooms

Operating rooms that are state-of-the-art feature the latest lighting and ancillary equipment. Ventilator support is available that features uninterrupted ventilation during pulmonary mechanics measurement, which reduces the risk of infection.

Spine Center patients can also benefit from active electrode monitoring (AEM) instrumentation for all laparoscopic surgeries – a state-of-the-art monitoring system that shields patients from electrosurgical burns. Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital was the first to bring this type of technology to Fort Bend County and set the standard.
