Jackson County Memorial Hospital recently installed a new 128-slice GE CT Scanner, one of the most technologically advanced CT Scanner in Southwest Oklahoma. This new scanner offers lower-dose radiation, faster exam times, and incredible detail that improves diagnostic capabilities.

­Other machine highlights are 3D and metal artifact reduction which reduces metal implant glare for easier delineation between abnormal and healthy tissue.

Frank Festa, Director of Radiology, says, “Low-dose radiation is a big deal. This new machine allows us to focus on the area we need to image while minimizing exposure to the patient’s healthy tissue. The images are top-notch and allow your physician to see an amazing level of anatomical detail that assists in treatment and diagnostics.”

The new CT Scanner complements JCMH’s already impressive lineup of modalities including MRI, Nuclear Medicine, and Mammography. JCMH also offers general radiology and ultrasound as well as bone density testing and flouroscopy.

“Our mission is to improve patient safety and quality so that JCMH is the best place for patients to receive care. High quality diagnostic tools such as the new 128-slice CT scanner, help our physicians diagnose diseases and disorders more quickly and accurately than ever before,” says JCMH President and CEO Steve Hartgraves.
