The UPA (Emergency Department) in the Cordeiros area, in Itajaí, on the north coast of Santa Catarina, began serving the public from this Thursday (16th) with a new digital x-ray machine. A group of radiologists was trained to work with the new model.
The transition from analog to digital is aimed at providing greater flexibility in providing services to the public and more accurate diagnostics. With the new device it will be possible to generate images of higher quality and faster.
In addition to this innovation, the site’s radiology department underwent a complete renovation, with increased insulation on the walls and the use of a special floor.
For patients, switching to digital radiography provides better results, as the diagnosis is made immediately, which increases the chances of successful treatment.
For clinicians, the main benefit is image quality, which is sharper and more contrasty, making exams easier to visualize and maximizing the accuracy of diagnoses.
In addition to the Cordeiros branch, the CIS (Integrated Medical Center) in San Vicente already has digital X-ray equipment to provide an even better service to the population.
