About the Imaging Center

UT Health Austin's Imaging Center is a part of the whole-person focus you receive from our specialty care teams. There is no need to make an appointment days or weeks in advanced or leave to get your imaging done at another location. If your provider orders an imaging study, in most cases, your imaging can be performed as part of your scheduled appointment. By offering the services you need at the time of your appointment, this efficient, collaborative model of care helps to save you precious time.

Lab and Test Results

Your imaging results may appear in your MyUTHA Patient Portal before your provider has had a chance to review them and make recommendations. Your provider will notify you through your patient portal once they have reviewed your results.

Advanced Imaging Options:

  • CT (Computed Tomography) - Diagnostic imaging test used to create detailed images of internal organs, bones, soft tissue, and blood vessels.
  • MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) - MRI produces detailed images of the body's internal organs, muscles, or bones that are clearer and more detailed, enabling your provider to identify or see the characteristics of disease.
  • PET/CT (Positron Emission Tomography - Computed Tomography) - Diagnostic imaging test that helps your provider evaluate body changes at the cellular level. PET/CT may detect the early onset of disease before it can be detected on other imaging tests.
