Imaging Center

 

The Imaging Center at Rusk County Memorial Hospital provides state-of-the-art digital imaging services for our patients. Our services include:

In-house Radiologist coverage is offered five days per week. Teleradiology coverage is available around the clock for emergency cases if a radiologist is not in-house to read the images.

Digital Technology Means Better Care for Patients

Up to the minute information is essential to quality healthcare decisions. In November 2006, the Imaging Center at Rusk County Memorial Hospital became the first site in Wisconsin to be 100% filmless for all diagnostic imaging including MRI, CT, Ultrasound, Mammography, Nuclear Medicine and General Radiography studies. By using a Fuji Synapse Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS), Rusk County Memorial Hospital physicians are allowed instant access to all images and reports from anywhere in the hospital, their clinic, or from their home.

Image Portability

Rusk County Memorial Hospital's PacsCube Lite CD burner allows for the distribution of digital images to patients, referring physicians and institutions requesting patient studies. The burner records the digital images onto a CD and viewing software so images can be reviewed by physicians from any computer.

Vitrea 3D Workstation

Rusk County Memorial Hospital has a Vital Images 3D Vitrea workstation. This highly specialized computer technology is utilized to reconstruct CT and MRI images into a 3D format. The 3D image can be manipulated to help clearly define any area of concern and assist in providing an accurate diagnosis.
