Mammography – Our digital mammography unit in the Women’s Imaging Center at Wayne Memorial Hospital and our highly trained staff are fully accredited by the American College of Radiology. We offer 3D mammography via the GE Senographe Pristina system, at the hospital, in our Pike County Medical Center and in our mobile unit.
The 3D Pristina mammography equipment from GE is designed for safety, comfort and clarity. This digital breast tomosynthesis system (DBT) reconstructs a 3-dimensional image from a single scan and delivers “superior diagnostic accuracy at the same dose as 2D mammography, the lowest patient dose of all government approved DBT systems,” according to GE. Moreover, with rounded edges, a thinner receptor plate and armrests instead of hand grips, the Pristina reduces much of the discomfort of earlier mammography systems.
Mobile Mammography – The 3D system is also in our mobile unit, which travels to Carbondale, Hamlin, Forest City and Lake Como.
To make an appointment for mammography, with a prescription from your provider, call 570-251-6689.
Ultrasound – Our three new Siemens Acuson Antares Ultrasound Systems deliver superb image quality and allow for a full range of fast, non-invasive diagnoses. Some clinical applications for this imaging technology include:
- 3D/4D Imaging
Diagnostic Section (X-RAY) – General Electric XRD Revolution equipment allows for direct digital capture of x-ray images. Each image is available for review within 3-5 seconds, allowing for maximum efficiency in diagnosis and treatment. Digital radiographic/fluoroscopic equipment and computed radiography units linked to our picture archiving and communications system, allow for immediate access to x-ray studies anywhere within the healthcare system.
Bone Density Testing Section – Our new Hologic QDR 4500 DEXA-Scan unit offers the most accurate diagnosis and screening of osteoporosis and other bone disorders.
Nuclear Medicine – Two gamma cameras, an ADAC Vertex Plus Dual-Head SPECT Gamma Camera and an ADAC ACR 3000 with Pegasus 20 Technology use minimal radiation to provide the most accurate diagnoses of conditions involving the heart, lungs, biliary system, gall bladder, kidneys, thyroid and bones.
Computerized Axial Tomography (CAT SCAN) – Our newly acquired state-of-the-art Aquilion PRIME from Toshiba is capable of producing 160 images or “slices” per rotation. It provides faster exams at the lowest doses of radiation that are reasonably achievable while producing high-quality images for precise diagnoses.
The speed of the Aquilion PRIME allows clinicians to obtain critical patient information faster than before. Shorter exams mean less contrast and radiation are required, making the procedure much safer. The equipment also offers more comfort for patients and expands the range of patients who can be imaged—from pediatric to bariatric– partly because of the Aquilion PRIME’s large bore opening and the industry’s widest couch.
Some typical procedures performed include:
- Angiography studies
- Trauma/emergency room/chest pain management
- Stroke workup
- Oncology/cancer care
- Pulmonary emboli
- Inner ear ailments
- Spinal injuries
- Abdominal injuries
- Pediatric assessment
- Kidney exams
- Liver exams
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) – A GE 1.5 Tesla, with Excite High Definition Technology provides a quantum improvement in the speed and resolution of MRI studies. These improved studies allow doctors to diagnose a wide range of conditions including:
- Cardiac and vascular disease
- Abdominal disorders
- Brain disorders
- Spinal injuries
- Musculoskeletal injuries; knee, shoulder, elbow, wrist and other joint injuries
This technology also allows radiologists to perform breast biopsies with MRI guidance.
PET/CT Scans—positron emission tomography with computer-assisted tomography. This imaging procedure, used to determine the location and stage of cancerous tissue, can help prevent unnecessary surgery, biopsies and inappropriate treatments. PET/CT has a major impact on the clinical evaluations of cancer patients, and in many cases will enable physicians to begin treatment earlier and increase the odds for successful patient outcomes.
The precise images obtained with PET/CT are not available with other technologies, such as X-ray, MRI, or CT alone. The PET/CT equipment combines or “fuses” the images of a PET scanner (metabolic function of cells) with the CT scanner (anatomic location of body structures) into one extremely detailed image.
