Images are captured by Digital (DR) Imaging. Our (DR) Equipment offers Dual-energy chest exams for anyone 50 years and over. Dual-energy subtraction imaging allows better visualization of a variety of entities, including nodules, bone lesions, vascular disease, pleural disease, mediastinal and hilar masses, tracheal and airway abnormalities, complex chest disease and indwelling devices. Dual-energy subtraction chest radiography improves the radiologist’s ability to detect and accurately diagnose a wide variety of chest lesions.
A Picture Archival Communication System (PACS) is available for all exams performed and images can be electronically transmitted to your West Jefferson physician's office for your convenience via the Hospital Web.
