Whether in our outpatient diagnostic imaging center, here as an inpatient or in our Emergency Department we are dedicated to the highest level of patient comfort and superior imaging. The technology we employ is a full spectrum of the latest technology in diagnostic imaging to ensure trust and confidence from our referring physicians and their patients.

Palestine Regional Medical Center recently acquired a 64-slice LightSpeed® VCT (volume computed tomo-graphy) system from GE Healthcare. The VCT is now the hospital's sole CT system, handling both inpatient and outpatient imaging. "It was selected because it aligned with the top priorities of the imaging department", explains Jason Stringfield, manager of diagnostic imaging. "First and foremost, we strive to make PRMC the healthcare choice in the community we serve."
We provide state-of-the-art services so patients don't have to travel far for care. Our new VCT allows us to deliver remarkable care to the community because of the quality images and the diagnostic tools it provides for physicians. For the patients, ease of use, low dose of radium, along with the quality technology, make this a simple choice to use our facility. Patients with multiple traumatic injuries can be evaluated more quickly and with more confidence using the VCT.
In addition to the CT, imaging technologies at PRMC include:
- State-of-the-art digital and computed radiography
- Nuclear medicine
- Digital mammography
- Bone mineral densitometry
