Before Remodel After Remodel
Lucas County Health Center (LCHC) is proud to announce that its radiology department has upgraded from computed radiology (CR) to digital radiology (DR), resulting in better quality, lower dose radiation images and improved patient care.
The upgrade allows digital images to be quickly shared between physicians and specialists. A diagnostic interpretation by a radiologist can then be provided and lead to a quicker diagnosis.
“Ultimately our patients will be benefitting because our providers will be able to have better quality, quicker, more accurate answers while also receiving a lower dose of radiation,” said Melissa Ryan, Radiology Manager.
The new system replaces an older computed radiography system used to perform x-ray exams. Full implementation of the new system, including equipment upgrades and room renovations, will be completed this week.
“This technology is an important step for Lucas County Health Center,” said Brian Sims, CEO. “It not only allows us to improve our patient experience, but it improves our systems so employees and providers can focus on what they do best – caring for our patients.”
