New CT Scan Technology, Now Available at Alice Hyde Medical Center
Alice Hyde Medical Center continues to fulfill its mission of providing the North Country with Advanced Medicine and Compassionate Care. The Medical Center has invested in a new, state of the art GE 128-slice CT Scanner. The Optima CT 660 is GE’s latest generation intelligent CT system.
Alice Hyde Medical Center’s new scanner provides exceptional image quality while reducing patient radiation dose. The Medical Center is the first hospital north of Glens Falls to have this technology. “We are proud to bring this technology to the North Country,” said Douglas DiVello, President at Alice Hyde Medical Center. “This new technology provides patients with the very best in imaging capability, close to home.”
The CT Scanner is a 128 slice scanner, which is an upgrade from Alice Hyde’s current 64 slice GE CT scanner. The increased number of slices provides a higher resolution 3-D image, allowing for clearer images of patient anatomy in the same amount of time. The new CT scanner also uses ASiR Technology, which helps reduce the patient’s dose of radiation significantly, while not compromising the clarity of the images. Alice Hyde Medical Center invested in GE’s DoseWatch technology, which helps monitor a patient’s lifetime dose of radiation. “DoseWatch will allow us to access a patient’s dose history, and then determine the appropriate dose levels for each procedure,” said Dr. Mordi Rehany, Chief Radiologist at Alice Hyde Medical Center. “The patient benefits by receiving their high quality diagnostic procedure at the lowest reasonably achievable dose,” said Rehany.
The new CT Scanner is now in use. For more information on CT services at Alice Hyde Medical Center, visit www.alicehyde.com or call the Medical Imaging Department at 518-481-2304.
