Sentara Virginia Beach General Hospital’s department of radiology offers several technological upgrades that have taken patient care to the next level. Since January 2003, the Voice Recognition System allows physicians to dictate their reports electronically, greatly improving the turnaround time and accessibility of this vital information. Working in conjunction with PACS (Picture Archive and Communication System) that allows physicians to easily view digital images and an online radiology information system, sharing patient knowledge has never been easier.
Another innovation is the use of CAD equipment to help radiologists spot breast cancer. This device flags possible areas of concern on the image, therefore providing a second set of eyes on the mammogram.
The Comprehensive Breast Center at Sentara Virginia Beach General Hospital features a variety of breast imaging services for breast cancer screening and diagnosis. Also on campus, the Advanced Imaging Center offers a full array of outpatient imaging services.
