DEXA Service in Radiology.


The Radiology department is pleased to announce that a new Hologic DEXA scanner was installed in the department for GP Direct Acess in October 2008.  This unit will now provide access to DEXA scans for GP patients with osteoporosis.


The scanner is located on the 1st floor of the Clinical Services Building adjacent to Mammography and out-patient ultrasound services.
Initially the service is operating two half-day sessions per week with a view to increasing it (based on demand) in early 2009.

The scanner will be networked to the existing RiS/PACS within the hospital, with a view to utilising the HealthLink function.
