To make the best possible decisions affecting patient health, doctors depend on a variety of tools to diagnose illnesses.
Today, through medical advances, there are ways to pinpoint certain diseases and disorders through diagnostics. Whether it is a lab test, an X-ray or an MRI, physicians rely on the expertise of Fisher-Titus Medical Center's medical professionals to find the answers they need to help their patients. And, through a shared electronic network and its Picture Archiving System (PACS), physicians have immediate access to a patient's diagnostic images wherever a computer is available. FTMC's physicians can have the results of their patients' tests faster than ever.
Today, diagnostic imaging is one of the most commonly performed medical procedures, with more than 300 million exams performed annually. Medical imaging is used for everything from measuring bone density to pinpointing brain tumors and from diagnosing breast cancer to checking on fetal health during pregnancy.
