SRMC offers imaging in Columbiana
SALEM – To provide area residents with more convenient access to advanced medical imaging services, Salem Regional Medical Center (SRMC) has launched its new, next generation CT imaging service in Columbiana at Firestone Farms TownCenter.
The new CT scanner is the latest addition to the advanced imaging services provided at SRMC’s free-standing Imaging Center in Columbiana, which offers 2D and 3D digital mammograms, DEXA bone density scans, ultrasounds and x-rays.
“Salem Regional Medical Center is well-known for providing many of the latest advances in medical imaging technology at our main location in Salem; and we now provide these high-caliber imaging services in Columbiana at our Imaging Center,”explained Dr. Anita Hackstedde, SRMC President/CEO.
“Our medical imaging services are accredited by the American College of Radiology, which assures that our services are nationally-recognized for high-quality and safety,” Hackstedde said. “We are very proud to be able to provide this new CT scanner as an addition to the wide-range of x-rays, 3D mammography and other imaging services available at our Columbiana facility.”
One of the best ways to treat disease is to find it as early as possible and the new CT scanner in Columbiana helps detect diseases in their earliest stages.
“With our advanced medical imaging technology, we can see what other imaging centers cannot see, leading to faster diagnosis and treatment,” said Dr. Peter Apicella, Chair of SRMC’s Department of Medical Imaging. Columbiana area residents, who take advantage of this new CT scanning technology, will benefit from high-quality, faster imaging and up to a 40% reduction in radiation dose.”
