The hospital provides direct digital mammography, which has been proven to be a significantly better screening and diagnostic tool than traditional film mammography according to a study by the National Cancer Institute. Plus, the Mammographic Imaging department has received accreditation for quality and safety by the American College of Radiology (ACR), Texas Department of Health Services (TDH), Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA), and Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Other advanced equipment in Radiology Services includes a 16-slice GE CT scanner, which produces up to 16 cross-sectional images ("slices") that are reconstructed to form a complete, precise image.
Images in Radiology Services are captured, transmitted and stored in the hospital's Picture Archiving and Communications System (PACS).
