Digital Equipment Upgraded at UHS Delaware Valley Hospital
In keeping up with technology advances, UHS Delaware Valley Hospital (DVH) has purchased two new replacement x-ray machines. This new equipment is the first in our area to enhance image quality through high definition. In addition to this, the new machines produce 25% lower dose of radiation than the previous devices.
Another technological advancement its specialized software for scoliosis. Scoliosis is a sideways curvature of the spine. With the new software, one view allows the radiologist to see the entire spine. This is more efficient because it does not require the technologist to make an adjustment for several images.
UHS Delaware Valley Hospital offers some evening and Saturday hours for many of its imaging services. Patients’ doctors do not have to be affiliated with UHS Delaware Valley Hospital in order for patients to have their testing done locally.
