New York Imaging Service has completed its second installation of multi-level integrated digital imaging systems for New York Methodist Hospital in Park Slope, Brooklyn, NY, the company has announced.
In 2012, the hospital upgraded its existing technology with six wireless detectors purchased through New York Imaging Service, planning to revisit the technology within 3 to 5 years. The latest project adds to existing wireless platforms to integrate x-ray systems, orthopedics, and fluoroscopy into one system, allowing physicians and radiologists to view images at the point of care for rapid diagnosis.
A member of the New York-Presbyterian healthcare system, the hospital has 651 beds and offers care to 40,000 patients per year. New York Methodist’s imaging department completes over 180,000 studies per year, and the facility has institutes in the following areas: advanced and minimally invasive surgery; asthma and lung disease; cancer care; cardiology and cardiac surgery; digestive and liver disorders; family care; neurosciences; orthopedic medicine; surgery; and women’s health.
“Upgrading our technology with these new imaging systems will allow our facility to continue to provide a very high level of care for our patients while ensuring our radiologists and doctors have access to the most advanced technologies that will allow high resolution imaging, decreased waiting times, and overall increased throughput,” said Anthony Mungo, administrative director of radiology for New York Methodist Hospital.
