At Houston Methodist Hospital, we know that to be truly leading medicine, we must stay abreast of new technology. By providing the best, most up-to-date equipment and services, we are better able to help the patients who seek treatment for some of the most challenging and complex cases. This is why Houston Methodist offers state-of-the-art neuroimaging technology in the form of a 3T magnet and 64-slice CT scanner, as well as treatment options such as stereotactic conformal radiotherapy, image-guided therapies, TomoTherapy, and linear accelerator technology.

By stewarding technological breakthroughs and using the technology we already have at hand to the best advantage, we are confident that we can realize our goal: taking care of the eyes of tomorrow through our hard work today.
