Lincoln Medical Center
Lincoln Medical Center’s Department of Diagnostic Imaging Center offers 24-hour services for emergency patients and for hospital inpatients.
Diagnostic Imaging offers a variety of state-of-the-art services, including diagnostic and therapeutic procedures (mammography, x-rays, nuclear medicine, CT scanning, sonography and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
Some of the department’s other advanced technology includes a Digital Stereotactic Biopsy Unit, which allows breast biopsies to be performed quickly and easily without surgery. In addition, the department now offers a LightSpeed computed tomography (CT) system that provides highly detailed images of the human body.
The mammogram department now uses a CAD (Computer Aided Detections) which works as a “second set of eyes” while reading mammograms. It marks any area that has an extra thickness to it for the radiologist to review along with his original readings.
Lincoln Medical Center is now offering digital mammography as a service to their patients. Digital mammography is a new and powerful technology used for the detection of breast cancer. It’s fast and easy, and provides both accurate and detailed images. Compression is less, and the images are clear and easy to read. An excellent view of the breast is offered; especially near the skin line, chest wall, and in women with diverse breast types.
Superior images, faster diagnostics, and greater patient comfort are what Lincoln Medical Center is all about.
