Implementing UW protocols at our facility has provided many advantages for our staff and patients.
Having these protocols, along with our GE scanners, allows my staff to confidently choose protocols for each patient that will produce much higher quality images with lower radiation doses than we could offer in the past. We were also afforded a learning and growing experience in comparing these protocols with what we were currently using. As a team with our GE applications specialists, we were able to identify areas in our practices that we could slightly alter for better and more ideal imaging. We are proud to tell our patients, staff, and community about what we can offer them with our new equipment and UW CT imaging protocols.
