Rice Medical Center has a New CAT Scan Unit. The GE Multislice 16 Slice Lightspeed CAT Scan has improved image quality, smaller slice thicknesses that gives more detailed information to the Radiologist and faster scan times.
PACS
(Picture Archive and Communication System). This allows us to store the images on a server and the Radiologist to view these images on any computer. Along with the CAT Scan, our MRI and Ultrasound are tied into the PACS. Rice Medical Center has also purchased a Computed Radiography system, which has made the radiology department filmless. All x-rays are taken on special cassettes that are processed by a computer and sent to the PACS to be viewed. Ordering physicians on staff at Rice Medical Center are now able to view their patient films over the web on our secure site from their office.
