A Acuson Sequoia 512 Ultrasound Echocardiography System was added in December 2000. The Acuson systems are specially designed to help perform radiology, obstetrics, and gynecologic, cardiac, and/or vascular exams. The system displays a two-dimensional image of tissues that lie within the scan plan and because the system displays images in real-time, organs can be observed in motion. Doppler capabilities allow you to monitor the flow of blood through vessels or within the heart.
A diagnostic imaging cat-scanner was added to the Radiology Department in January 2000. The new scanner incorporates leading-edge-imaging technology and supports a full range of clinical applications including diagnosis of disease, internal abnormalities and trauma.
The Cat-scanner provides excellent image quality and the clarity of the images produced provides more diagnostic information for the detection of cancer, spinal injuries, pediatric conditions and trauma change.
