New scanner technology at Lynn County Hospital District helps fight against Osteoporosis
Administrator Stace Holland is excited to announce that a GE Lunar Digital IDEXA Bone Densitometry machine has been recently installed at Lynn County Hospital District. The scanner features the latest digital technology in the fight against Osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is a gradual thinning and weakening of the bones that can lead to bone fractures. Osteoporosis affects nearly one-half of all post-menopausal women, the largest group at high risk for osteoporosis. Malena Vitolas, Director of LCHD Radiology states “This new digital densitometer measures bone mineral density, which relates directly to bone strength. In just 30 seconds this highly precise densitometer aids in identifying osteoporosis risk and in determining the effects of osteoporosis treatment.” The procedure is painless and only takes a few minutes. Along with the new digital bone densitometry scanner, Lynn County Hospital Radiology offers diagnostic radiology, ultrasound, vascular ultrasound, echocardiograms and computed tomography. For more information call LCHD Radiology at 998-4533 x412. Please remember we can send your reports to any referring doctor.
LCHD Radiology has implemented digital technology with its new PACS System!
The radiology department at Lynn County Hospital District is technologically advanced with a staff that is happy to assist the residents of Lynn County and the rest of the entire South Plains with their imaging needs. Our imaging department has implemented a PACS system paired with CR imaging. PACS is an all-digital, film-less imaging process that provides electronic image of all radiology routines including x-rays, CT scans and ultrasound. This system allows imaging modalities to be integrated, displayed and digitally stored. Authorized users, such as our physicians and family nurse practitioners are able to view the images either from the LCHD Radiology department or from their own offices.
Imaging services offered at LCHD are diagnostic x-ray, computed tomography, vascular, cardiac, and diagnostic ultrasound. Our licensed and fully trained imaging personnel are available onsite 24 hours a day and seven days a week. Imaging tele-radiology services are also available to our medical staff 24 hours a day and seven days a week.
Our technologists are registered with the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT)
All these services are offered right here in Tahoka. Why drive all the way to Lubbock when most of your diagnostic imaging needs can be met at LCHD?
