HCHC celebrates radiology staff during National Radiologic Technology Week

Nov 04, 2016

Henry County Health Center (HCHC) is celebrating the important role that diagnostic imaging has had in the field of medicine and the invention of the X-ray during National Radiologic Technology Week, Nov. 6-12.

Diagnostic imaging has greatly improved since the X-ray was first discovered in 1895. According to Todd Steenblock, HCHC Imaging Services Director, the invention of the X-ray plays an instrumental role in providing high-quality patient care.

“Most people know that the X-ray is used to produce images of inside the body,” Steenblock said. “But the general public often doesn’t know about the various advanced radiology systems that perform sophisticated medical tests using X-rays, such as Cardiac Catheterizations and interventional and therapeutic treatments.”

The radiology staff at HCHC is composed of radiologists and radiologic technologists. Core services performed at HCHC include: X-ray, CT, MRI, 3-D Mammography, Ultrasound, Nuclear Medicine, PET/CT and Fluoroscopy.

“X-ray technology allows us to produce high-quality images that help physicians quickly and accurately detect, diagnose and treat injury and illness,” Steenblock continues. “Our team is extremely dedicated to providing the best possible patient care, and we’re excited to celebrate our achievements during National Radiologic Technology Week.”
