Digital X-Ray

If you think your child has swallowed something or you think you may have broken an ankle, Hospitality Health ER has digital X-Rays onsite to give you the results you need—fast. Digital X-Rays reduce your exposure to radiation by up to 80 percent compared to film-based systems.

Unlike film, digital X-Ray images can be magnified, sharpened, colorized, or displayed as a negative which helps our radiologist make a more precise diagnosis of your condition. Digital radiography is also much faster than film, which means faster results.

X-rays can be used to diagnose:

  • Conditions Affecting the Lungs
  • Enlarged Heart
  • Fractures
  • Infections
  • Blood Clots
  • Swallowed Items

Depending on the images needed, the X-Ray technician will ask you to lie, sit, or stand in several positions during the process. You will be asked to hold your breath and remain still while the images are being taken. This provides the clearest images possible. * We have digital X-Ray machines at both our Longview and Tyler ER Centers.

CT Scan

Computed tomography (CT) is an imaging procedure that uses special x-ray equipment to capture detailed pictures, or scans, of areas inside the body such as bones and tissue. It is also called computerized tomography and computerized axial tomography (CAT Scan).

  • Injuries
  • Stroke
  • Organ Failure
  • Blood Clots
  • Infections
  • Digestive Problems
  • Blockages
  • Tumors

What to Expect:

You will be asked to lie on a table inside a doughnut-shaped machine, which allows the patient to remain in an open environment, unlike an MRI. * We go beyond the services of most urgent care clinics to provide CT scans onsite at both our Longview and Tyler emergency care centers.

Ultrasound

For pregnant patients experiencing bleeding or other abnormal symptoms, we have onsite ultrasound capabilities to assess the status of the baby. Ultrasound imaging (sonography) uses high-frequency sound waves to show what is going on inside of your body in real-time. The scan shows the movement of your internal organs and the blood flowing through your blood vessels.

  • The health and vitals of your baby
  • Abdominal and pelvic organs
  • Muscles and tendons
  • Heart and blood vessels

What to Expect:

When you undergo an ultrasound exam, the technician will apply gel to your skin as a conductor and then use a transducer (probe) to capture the image. * We provide ultrasound testing onsite at both our Longview and Tyler emergency rooms.

EKG

Is it a panic attack or a heart attack? Just like a hospital ER, HHER is equipped with an electrocardiogram (EKG or ECG) onsite to measure the electrical activity of the heartbeat. An EKG tells how fast your heart is beating, the timing of electrical signals as they pass through each part of your heart, and whether you have a steady or irregular heartbeat rhythm.

What to Expect:

EKG is a painless, risk-free test that just takes a few minutes and is performed while you are awake. Electrodes (small, plastic patches) are placed directly on your skin at different locations on your chest, arms and legs. These electrodes are connected to wires that communicate with an EKG machine. * We provide EKG testing onsite at both our Longview and Tyler emergency rooms.
