HCHC’s Radiology staff will celebrate the important role that diagnostic imaging has had in the field of medicine and the invention of the X-ray during National Radiologic Technology Week, Nov. 5-11.
Diagnostic imaging has greatly improved since the X-ray was first discovered in 1895. The invention of the X-ray plays an instrumental role in providing high-quality, effective and efficient patient care. The radiology staff at Henry County Health Center is composed of 15 radiologic technologists with a combined total of 170 years’ experience in radiology and performs 18,000 radiology exams annually, servicing 13,000 patients.
X-ray technology allows us to produce high-quality images that help physicians quickly and accurately detect, diagnose and treat injury and illness. HCHC’s team is extremely dedicated to providing the best possible patient care, and we’re excited to celebrate our achievements during National Radiologic Technology Week.
