Health technology advances at a rapid pace and GVMH makes a point to keep pace with technology when it benefits our patients. GVMH is committed to technology and that commitment is one of our strategic advantages. We may be rural hospital but our technology rivals that of leading academic medical centers.
We launched new imaging technology that will benefit our community when we installed the Discovery NM/CT 670 in early October. The combined nuclear camera and CT will enhance our cardiac imaging, oncology imaging, orthopedic imaging and be safer and more comfortable for patients. The new camera produces better images with less radiation dose than any comparable camera in the area.
Here’s a picture of the new equipment.
To provide you a comparison with how far our Nuclear Medicine imaging has come over the past 40 years I’ve provided a photo of where we were when the services were initially offered…(can you guess who’s in the picture) Here’s a hint: She’s providing the same great care today that she was then.
