Direct Digital Imaging
Avera Sacred Heart Hospital was the first and only imaging center to utilize Direct Digital imaging to become a completely digital and filmless hospital in the Yankton region. The Same Day Surgery Center is completely digital which provides better quality images in less time than a film-based system requires. Physicians can access diagnostic images immediately after they’ve been taken – regardless of the physician’s location – the surgery center, their clinic or the hospital.
Avera Sacred Heart Hospital invested over two million dollars in digital imaging equipment to enhance its medical imaging capabilities.
