Phase II of our Construction Project is focused on the Imaging department. Diagnostics are a very important part of our Health System. The majority of our Computed Tomography (CT) studies are performed on an emergency basis. Our board of directors recently approved the upgrade of our CT scanner to a 64-slice, GE VCT scanner that will allow us to run tests faster, at safer doses of radiation, with a broader spectrum of testing options. We have also recently added a GE LogiQ 8 ultrasound machine to perform both scheduled and emergency ultrasound studies. The renovation and enhancement project is not just defining the facility we will operate in, but will transform the services we offer to our communities and patrons.
