The Picture Archive and Communication System (PACS) and digital imaging (DI) equipment are stored in secure electronic systems. As x-rays, ultrasounds and mammograms are captured digitally during your exam, they can be quickly shared with your health care provider.

By having this system in place, your health care provider can:

  • Provide faster diagnosis and decisions relating to your treatment.
  • Consult in real time with specialists from different locations over your images.
  • Enlarge and focus on specific portions of your image.
  • See your images in higher detail than film.
