GGH Enhances Diagnostic Imaging Services
Geneva General Hospital (GGH) has made significant upgrades to its radiology and diagnostic department as part of its commitment to be the best health system of its size in the United States.
GGH is proud to announce the installation of a new Siemens AS + 128 slice CT scanner. The scanner offers the latest in radiation dose reductions, as well as efficiencies, and software upgrades to allow for extremely quick scan times. GGH is the first to provide this magnitude of CT scanner. “Patients will not have to be in the department as long and their physician will be able to receive the results sooner to be able to assist in diagnosing their patients,” states director of diagnostics, Jeff Fultz.
GGH has also installed a new Siemens Full Field Digital Radiology X-Ray room, providing the latest state-of-the-art digital radiology technology in the region. There is no film required, eliminating the wait time for film processing. The images acquired can be viewed by the technologists within seconds, and then are sent to the ordering physician and radiologists immediately via the state-of-the-art digital picture archival system (PACS). This allows for quick diagnosis of injury and/or disease and reduces the wait time for patients and families.
GGH also purchased a new fully digital portable x-ray unit to be able to more efficiently provide needed diagnostic imaging information to the Emergency Department providers while they are bedside in the patient’s room. The physicians will be able to view the images while the equipment and radiology staff are still in the room, greatly reducing the time between acquisition and viewing. If additional procedures or imaging is required, the physician will know within seconds. These images can then be wirelessly sent to a radiologist from the patient’s room, allowing the Emergency Department physician to consult with them immediately if necessary.
GGH will be providing ultrasound services in the newly renovated emergency room area, while still providing ultrasound services in the primary radiology area, cardiology, and Women’s Health department.
All of these services will be available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and will now be located just off of the main hallway in the new Emergency Department, in space previously occupied by the old Emergency Department.
