The Radiology Department at Springhill Medical Center
Springhill Medical Center has a legacy of being at the forefront of technology, and our
Radiology department exemplifies that standard. We have utilized digital imaging throughout the entire department since 2004. Digital images allow your physician to view your study online through a secure website from anywhere. They can even view the images while discussing the study with one of our board certified radiologists who is looking at the same image at the same time. Another advantage of digital imaging is that we can burn your images to a DVD for you, but we will continue to store the original image.
In December of 2011, we added more advanced technology that is beneficial to you
as our patient; a new dictation/reporting system that allows our radiologists the ability to dictate, transcribe, and sign your study report all at the same time. There is no ‘turnaround time’ waiting for a transcriptionist to type a report. This means that the report will be in your physician’s hands in the least amount of time possible, improving communication and patient care for everyone.
In 2008, Springhill Medical was the first non-research hospital in the United States to install a Toshiba Aquillion One 320 slice CT scanner. This highly technologically advanced CT scanner gives us the ability to capture whole organs (16cms) in a single rotation. Why is this important to you? It’s the fastest scanner available, so you are on the table the least amount of time. Due to this rapid acquisition of images, children can now be imaged without the use of sedation. The Aquillion One also utilizes Adaptive Iterative Dose Reduction technology (AIDR), which ensures that our patients receive the lowest radiation dose of any CT scanner on the market.
In 2002 our MQSA
certified Women’s Diagnostic center was the first digital mammography center on the Gulf Coast. Digital mammograms are faster than film mammograms
, because there is no film to develop. Because it is so much faster, we are almost always able to take walk in appointments! Call The Women’s Center directly at 251- 460-5258 for an appointment, or stop by to see if we can get you right in.
According to a study performed by the National Cancer Institute comparing film and digital mammography, digital mammography is more accurate than film at finding cancer in women less than 50 years old, and women who have dense (not fatty) breast tissue. Digital mammography uses less radiation than traditional film mammography, reducing your lifetime exposure to x-rays.
