Newly installed digital equipment has made the Providence Medical Center Radiology Department one of the first rural hospitals in our area a filmless department. Exams are now stored on computer.
Digital imaging benefits patients as well as the hospital. Digital manipulation of images can greatly reduce the need for repeating images which decreases patient exposure to x-rays. Patients are also able to obtain much faster results with PMC’s Teleradiology service. All digital images are sent daily via computer lines to the radiologists in Lincoln for timely interpretation. Digital images include MAMMOGRAPHY, CT Scans, Ultrasounds, Vascular Ultrasounds, MRI’s, PET/CT and routine radiographic exams.
Radiologists from St. Elizabeth’s hospital in Lincoln visit Providence Medical Center twice a month to perform special procedures.
