he Radiology Department offers a wide variety of state-of-the-art diagnostic and specialty services performed by over 16 board certified Radiologists and many more highly trained and experienced Technologists.
Due to a recent renovation, patients can now undergo their testing in a new and more comfortable environment. The department has two CT scanners, one located near and dedicated to the Emergency Department, which operates on a 24 hour basis, 7 day per week. The other CT, a 64-slice scanner, is located in the Radiology Suite. This non-invasive imaging system allows Radiologists the ability to obtain diagnostic digital images in about ten seconds and produces clearer and more accurate images. The computer and software technology allows for quicker manipulation of images and data and can produce images in 3D. The scanner has the ability to perform cardiac imaging procedures which can eliminate the need for a patient to undergo an invasive Cardiac Catheterization. The 64-slice CT scanner can also be used for patients undergoing reconstructive facial surgeries and orthopedic procedures.
The Radiology Department also features a digital PACS system, which allows Radiologists to easily share images with a patient’s primary doctors and can be read from multiple off-site locations.
