We provide services fro newborns through geriatrics with both diagnostic and emergency procedures.

Digitalized imaging called picture archiving and communication system (PACS) has moved LRMC well ahead of other area hospitals, including those in Huntington and Charleston.

Prior to the PACS system LRMC had a problem shared by most hospitals. All imaging studies were only in hard copy (film and paper). Efficiency suffered because images had to be requested and retrieved, and only one person at a time could view them. Often reports were misplaced or not returned by the users, leading to incomplete records. Patients, too, were inconvenienced. The many steps involved in imaging, interpreting the image, dictating a report and communicating the report to the patients physician could take several days, which increased the patients' anxiety about the results and delayed the next stage of their care.

This new system allows immediate viewing of the image and quicker review by a physician. The image can also be viewed by physicians off-site or a CD can be sent and accessed on their computers.

Nancy Godby, RT ( R) Director of Radiology, is a driving force behind the advancement of radiology services at LRMC. "The entire department has been upgraded, but the PAC system is really state of the art," she says.
