The Only Fluoro CT Scanner in Laredo, Texas

April 10, 2014

Now, with the acquisition of the newest and only Fluoro CT scanner in Laredo, all the procedures can be guided with the latest and most accurate technology available, like the entirety of pain management procedures and medication delivery, biopsies, abscess and fluid collection drainages and will be the only practice to offer CT guided Radiofrequency Ablation of Tumors with the latest and just FDA approved Microsulis “ACCULIS” probe (www.microsulis.com), not available either in San Antonio or Houston, TX yet. This allows for better accuracy, faster procedure performance, less invasiveness, better heat delivery and decreased radiation exposure. No other practice or hospital can surpass our technology, equipment and experience. Also, this new Scanner can obtain some of the most accurate and sophisticated studies that will be interpreted by specialized and fellowship trained Diagnostic Radiologists in most areas, not just as someone that reads CT’s as part of their general Radiology practice. The continued advancements and incorporation of new equipment and technology makes the set-up and practices of Drs. Flavio and Wilfrido Castaneda, one of the most advanced in South East Texas. “The Medicare data clearly show that more transfusions and intensive care utilization, longer length of stay, more repeat procedures or amputations and higher costs result when treatment is not performed by Interventional Radiologists” and that’s in an inpatient setting. In ours, 100% of the procedures are done on an outpatient basis and with the pre-and-post-procedure care, by dedicated and experienced personnel, free of bureaucracy or prolonged delays and in a caring and compassionate environment. We are all about patient centered care, experience and best procedure outcomes. Drs. Flavio and Wilfrido R. Castaneda both have over 70 years of experience in performing and teaching these Interventional Radiology Procedures to others, in some of the best academic centers of the world and have performed hundreds of thousands of these procedures, in their careers.
