Our Radiology Department offers a wide variety of services including diagnostic radiology, 64-slice CT scanner, ultrasound, digital mammography, nuclear medicine, Open Bore MRI, angiography and stereostatic breast biopsy. Radiological services are provided 24-hours a day, seven days a week by skilled technologists. Readings of exams are performed by a team of highly qualified physicians, trained in many specialties. They are available at all times, either on-site or through teleradiology, to provide timely and accurate results.
Perry is using the Picture Archiving and Communications System (PACS) to obtain, view and distribute radiology images and accompanying data electronically. Benefits of this system include film cost savings since images are produced without the use of x-ray film; increase the accuracy and timeliness of the Radiologists’ reports; all of the patient’s test results and information will be available to the physician within minutes after an exam is completed; and the results and information can be sent electronically to other hospitals.
