Trinity Radiology Offering Enhanced Access to PET/CT Services
Fort Dodge, IA – UnityPoint Health – Trinity Regional Medical Center is proud to announce their Radiology department will now offer PET/CT services Monday through Friday.
Early in January, Trinity started offering PET/CT services five days a week. Before this addition to Trinity Radiology, this service and technology was available only one day each week which meant patients would have to wait or travel. The enhanced access not only provides convenience but improves patient care for timely clinical decisions. The PET/CT services are provided by Trinity’s nuclear team.
“No one likes to wait. This is especially true when waiting for a health diagnosis. The, “what if’s,” can be extremely stressful for patients,” shares Troy Martens, COO of UnityPoint Health – Trinity Regional Medical Center. “Now Trinity Radiology has a way to eliminate some of that wait and anxiety for our patients by providing access to PET/CT Monday through Friday.”
PET/CT scans help doctors evaluate a patient’s organs and tissues to see how well they are working. PET scans are most commonly used to detect cancer, heart problems and brain disorders.
