In the world of health care, new technology is bringing the human body and its processes into sharper focus, giving doctors better tools with which to diagnose countless health conditions through more precise imaging. By integrating leading-edge medical technology with a space designed specifically for the growing needs of the community, Washington Hospital's new Outpatient Imaging Center located in Washington West, offers both high quality diagnostic programs and outstanding service and convenience.
Washington Outpatient Imaging Center offers the most advanced, all-digital imaging technology available in one convenient location. Click on the links below to learn more about the diagnostic services available.
The centerpiece of the Outpatient Imaging Center is the state-of-the-art 64-slice computed tomography (CT) scanner. While current generation CT scanners are fine for most applications, the newly installed equipment creates 64 high-resolution anatomical images per rotation. This will decrease scan times to several seconds which allows almost all patients to be scanned in high resolution. The slices are as thin as a credit card and support advanced cardiac studies, among other applications. These images are combined to form a three dimensional view of the patient's anatomy, allowing physicians to view such things as blockages in the coronary arteries, as well as the motion and pumping action of a patient's heart.
In addition to advances in imaging technology, the transition from traditional film-based radiology to digital images through the Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS) greatly enhances the service provided by the Outpatient Imaging Center. PACS offers a much faster turnaround time, not only for capturing images, but also for getting the results from the radiologist who read those images to the patient's physician.
Additionally, necessary diagnostic imaging services for patients at the Washington Women's Center can easily be coordinated with the Outpatient Imaging Center, which is only steps away. Primary benefits of the outpatient environment included extended hours of service Monday through Friday and efficient scheduling that helps reduce appointment delays.
