Diagnostic Imaging (Radiology)
Advancements in radiology technology have taken the art of diagnosing disease
well beyond the simple X-ray, and Coshocton Regional Medical Center’s Radiology
Department has set our sights on keeping pace. We have focused on maintaining
an advanced level of imaging technology you can count on for accuracy,
precision and timely results. Our commitment to diagnostic technology
has included many recent enhancements including:
Our conversion to digital imaging enables us to capture a digitalized image
instead of using film. In this format, the image can be quickly viewed
for accuracy before you leave, greatly reducing callbacks for additional images.
Once your X-ray is taken, the image is transmitted to the radiologist for
review. With digital technology, the radiologist can zoom into an area
of interest with great clarity and can readily make comparisons to other
images or films you have on record. When the radiologist’s analysis
is complete, the report and images are electronically transmitted over
a secure connection to your physician to complete the diagnosis. The resulting
benefit is timely access by our team of radiologists with a visual image
response back to your physician. Further, the technology used in sending
information via secure transmission saves precious time once spent in
film development and transportation.
It’s a new age in radiology and Coshocton Regional Medical Center is proud to use
a broad range of new technologies to benefit our patients. If you have
