Houston Methodist Clear Lake Hospital MRI Scheduling

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) uses magnets and radio waves to produce images of organs, soft tissue structures and bones, in order to diagnose spinal cord, bone and joint conditions, and injuries. MRIs do not use ionizing radiation.

The MRI facility at Houston Methodist Clear Lake Hospital offers the following best-in-class MRI technology and machines for superior imaging studies:

  • 3 Tesla MRI
  • 3 Tesla Wide-Bore MRI
  • 1.5 Tesla Wide-Bore MRI

Call Houston Methodist Clear Lake MRI scheduling at (281) 333-8858 to set up a time to complete your MRI that is convenient for you.

After completing your MRI study at Houston Methodist Clear Lake, please call Dr. Rios’ clinic at to set up a follow up appointment to discuss the results and treatment options specific for your condition.

MRI study follow up appointments can be done in person at the clinic, or virtually via video or telephone consultations with either Dr. Rios or his Nurse Practitioner. If your study is done at a Houston Methodist facility, our office typically receives the MRI films and radiologist diagnostic report 3-5 business days after you complete your MRI study. Therefore, your MRI study follow up appointment is typically scheduled 3-5 business days out from your study date.

If you decide to have your MRI study done outside of a Houston Methodist facility, we ask that you please instruct that facility to give you a CD copy of the MRI films before leaving their facility and have them fax the radiologist diagnostic report to our fax number at: (281) 333-2490. This process may take 7-14 days to process.

Please bring the CD copy to our office located at 18123 Upper Bay Blvd, Suite 200, Houston, Texas, 77058.

Please allow 5-7 business days for your MRI study to be approved by your medical insurance company.

If you have any questions regarding your MRI study, please call our MRI scheduling department at .
