Garrett Regional Medical Center has recently upgraded its technology as part of an ongoing effort to ensure best practices in providing state-of-the-art care for the Garrett Region. The different technology purchases impact patient care in the areas of radiographic imaging, emergency care, surgical and anesthesia services as well in the critical care areas.
Steven Peterson, VP and Chief Information Officer explained, “Our radiology services have advanced from Computed Radiography (CR) to Digital Radiography (DR) which immediately captures a sharper image for diagnostic purposes. The hospital also procured two state of the art c-arms for surgical services, which are mobile x-ray devices that are named because of their shapes, and also a mini c-arm that will be used for faster diagnosis in orthopedic cases in the Emergency Department.”
On the heels of these upgrades, Garrett Regional Medical Center announced the start of new PET/CT Imaging Services. The PET/CT is often able to detect diseases, specifically used for Cancer Care in the very early stages allowing for early treatment. It is also used to show a patient’s response to a disease intervention. This new mobile service is being provided in cooperation with Alliance Healthcare Radiology. Appointments for this new service can be made by calling 866-245-5995.
