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
In 2014, HMH invested in a new Hologic® Selenia® Dimensions digital mammography machine. The advanced technology allows HMH to capture the highest quality images and detect even subtle changes in breast tissue, improving accuracy and our ability to provide an early diagnosis for breast cancer. Plus, its quick image capture reduces exam length and increases patient comfort.
64-Slice CT Scanner
Also in 2014, HMH upgraded to a 64-slice CT scanner, which provides better images, quicker scans and decreased radiation exposure. The 64-slice technology captures more precise details, and the dose reduction capabilities provide at least a 40 percent reduction in radiation for every exam. It also has specific pediatric protocols to further decrease radiation exposure for children.
