Howard Memorial Hospital is one of the few hospitals in Arkansas that offers digital imaging for a wide variety of diagnostic procedures. This gives HMH the advantage of providing physicians with clean, clear images to aid in determining the extent of an injury or medical condition. Our digital imaging technology includes:
• CT scans
• Bone density
• Nuclear medicine
If you have any questions, comments or concerns regarding our diagnostic imaging department, please contact our radiology director: Stacy Harberson at 870-845-8070.
In 2018, HMH upgraded Digital Mammography to the Genius3D system, a more accurate screening exam in the fight against breast cancer. With the new system there are fewer unnecessary callbacks, greater accuracy, comparable compression and exam time, better and earlier detection. More accuracy means that it detects 20-65% more invasive breast cancers compared to 2D alone.
In 2019, HMH will be upgrading to a 128-slice CT scanner, which provides better images, quicker scans and decreased radiation exposure. The 128-slice technology captures more precise details, and dose reduction capabilities in radiation for every exam. It also has specific pediatric protocols to decrease radiation exposure for children. It will also provide cardiac testing.
