Logan Regional’s nuclear medicine services are accredited by the American College of Radiology (ACR). The nuclear medicine camera is able to offer details to a physician on both the structure and function of internal body parts. To obtain the images, radioactive materials are introduced into a patient’s body. This material collects in the area of concern, where it gives off energy in the form of gamma rays. This energy can then be detected by the camera.
How does being accredited benefit patients?
Patients who come to Logan Regional Hospital for accredited imaging services can expect a higher standard of care than receiving non-accredited services. They can be assured:
- The equipment being used to determine the extent of their illness or injury is being calibrated daily to ensure high-quality, consistent images of the body.
- The radiologists who read the images participate in peer-to-peer reviews so that there is consensus and accuracy among their colleagues on diagnoses.
- They will receive the proper dose of radiation in accordance with FDA recommendations.
- The technologists are experts in their field and in using the imaging equipment.
Emergency diagnostic imaging services are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
