Imaging Library

The Diagnostic Imaging Library manages patient records for all procedures performed within Diagnostic Imaging including General Radiography, Fluoroscopy, Computed Tomography, Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Ultrasound, Mammography and Special Procedures.

When your procedure is completed, the images are stored in the hospital computer system referred to as PACS. Our radiologists provide a report using voice recognition software after examining the images.  Reports are distributed to your doctor from the hospital fax system.  In addition, many physicians have the capability to view the hospital images and reports from their own office.
