Updated PET/CT Technology with Enhanced Imaging and Lower Radiation at EasternWoods Outpatient Center

12.26.2018

EasternWoods Outpatient Center, a division of Blanchard Valley Health System (BVHS), recently updated its PET/CT scan technology to improve patient experience. This diagnostic system will allow providers to give more accurate diagnoses with 3D imaging, enhanced imaging with wider fields of view and improved lesion detectability. Additionally, patients will receive less radiation and complete scans in a faster amount of time.

“EasternWoods Outpatient Center and BVHS are committed to obtaining advanced technology to provide the highest quality and comprehensive care to patients,” said Jill Jaynes, BVHS service line director of cardiovascular and imaging services.  

To receive this updated technology, BVHS joined forces with Shared Medical Services as its new vendor for PET/CT services. “BVHS switched vendors to both improve care outcomes and collaborate with the Vantage Group of Ohio, a collection of eight hospitals committed to searching for opportunities of quality improvement and cost savings in health care,” said Chris Keller, president of Bluffton Hospital and vice president of BVHS clinical services and supply chain.

EasternWoods Outpatient Center also offers other imaging services to meet patient needs including MRI, digital mammography, ultrasound, EKG and more. To schedule an appointment, call BVHS Central Scheduling at 419.423.5323.
