A technologist at ImageCare sets up the CT scanner for an exam and explains to the patient what she should expect during the procedure.
When the new state-of-the-art CT scanner arrived in August at the ImageCare offices in Richland Northeast, doctors and staffers alike knew they were answering the top two concerns patients have when receiving this type of diagnostic service. The new multi-slice scanner delivers the lowest radiation dose possible and reduces procedure scan times dramatically. Once again, this proves that ImageCare is dedicated to providing the best possible care to its patients. When you rely on ImageCare for fast, high-quality medical imaging that provides you with the answers which will expedite your treatment and care, they deliver time and time again.
Another benefit to the new scanner is its ability in accommodating obese patients, an epidemic afflicting one in three Americans. The new system meets this challenge by offering a very large opening for the patient and a 660-pound table weight capacity. The scanner also allows CT Angiography, which is a painless examination of arteries and veins without the discomfort and necessity of an admission and sedation for an invasive examination.
While technology is always changing and advancing, the one thing that never changes at ImageCare is the level of care. From the moment you are greeted in the reception area until the time you leave their office, the highly trained physicians and professional staff deliver what they often call “big city service” with hometown care.
