RGH installs nuclear medicine imaging technology

Bon Secours Rappahannock General Hospital recently installed an all purpose, dual detector nuclear imaging system, the GE Discovery NM630.

“This highly advanced unit gives healthcare providers the outstanding capability to deliver excellent care to their patients,” said RGH imaging manager Chris Shepperson. “With doses as low as half those of standard nuclear medicine scanning protocols and the potential for significantly less time on the table, this is truly top of the line imaging technology.”

Nuclear medicine is a medical specialty that is used to diagnose diseases in a safe and painless way.
