Radiology Suite Receives $1M Upgrade

Plainview Hospital has built a new interventional radiology suite and revamped its three recovery rooms to give its patients access to state-of-the-art technology and a more patient-centered experience.

The $1 million upgrades enable physicians to capture and view detailed 3-D images through the use of an innovative angiographic X-ray lab. As a result of this new technology, the Plainview Hospital interventional radiology team will obtain improved-quality images when performing neurological, cardiovascular and endovascular procedures. The radiology team will also be able to perform most studies using significantly less radiation without compromising image quality.

“Patients are now able to receive state-of-the-art care in our interventional radiology suite close to their homes,” said Melonie Longacre, RT, administrative director of radiology at Plainview Hospital.

“This suite is for both inpatient and outpatient procedures and will be a great asset to Plainview Hospital and the community,” said Michael Fener, executive director of Plainview Hospital. “We are delighted to be able to bring to the community this level of advanced imaging service.”
