1. Trauma Centers Always on Standby


    from Lee Memorial Health System Added 15 0 0

    An untimely accident can turn a regular day into a tragedy. One misstep, collision or miscalculation can land someone in serious trouble. “Certainly summertime is coming up and the water is going to start warming up again and people are going to want to get back in their pools and there’s always a possibility of hitting your head when you dive,” says Dr. Robert O’Connor, a trauma surgeon with Lee Memorial Health System. Head injuries that impact the spinal cord are among the critical incidents requiring the fast, specialized care which only a trauma center can deliver. “Everybody knows if you’re a trauma alert, you’re going to Lee Memorial Hospital which is the regional Trauma Center,” explains Michael Marcus who is the trauma program manager. The trauma center model is built on research. Critically injured people have the best chance of survival if they get the help they need within one hour. To achieve that, only a dedicated facility will have a proper team of specialists on standby, waiting. “We are always prepared; there is always a team available. Not just a primary team, but also a backup team. Ready to go in case we have multiple incidents going on which frequently happens,” says Marcus. That includes trauma surgeons, neurosurgeons, orthopedic surgeons, anesthesiologists, radiologists and nurses. A core team is 10 professionals; up to 20 may be involved - for a single patient. “We’ve had some miraculous outcomes and I literally use the word miraculous but there’s times when patients that don’t have a lot of potential to recover and they literally walk back into our office six months later,” says Dr. O’Connor. The proof is all around us; people alive and well, thanks to the effort of the trauma team.

        BIOPSY CHOICE SURGICAL JOB OR IMAGE GUIDED NEEDLE MINIMAL INVASIVE Dr Jared Christensen Medford Radiology Providence Medical Center Hi I am Bill Keefer, living in the Medford Oregon area, just recently had a VA Cat Scan that showed number swollen Lymph Nodes, the VA wanted to do a surgical biopsy, but I selected a local option and at Providence Hospital in Medford, Dr. Christensen performed a non invasive biopsy using a CT scan machine and image aided a small needle to extract biopsy tissue. I got into the Cat scan room and it only took 20 minutes or so for the procedure. I was on twilight drugs and was awake for the procedure. No pain, and I didn’t even know they had done the procedure as they were rolling me out to recovery room. Providence Hospital, Medford Radiology and Doctor Christensen is the best. For me this minimal invasive biopsy, is far superior to being cut open and have the old style surgery that looks archaic by comparison. Dr. Jared Christensen (Medford Radiology) interventional radiologists uses modern minimally invasive medicine. Using X-rays, CT, ultrasound, MRI, and other imaging methods, interventional radiologists obtain images which are then used to direct interventional instruments throughout the body. These procedures are usually performed using needles and narrow tubes rather than by making large incisions into the body as in traditional surgery. Image-guided biopsy. An image-guided biopsy is a procedure in which the doctor uses imaging technology, such as ultrasound, fluoroscopy, computed tomography (CT) scan, x-ray, or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan, to determine the exact location of the tissue that needs to be removed for analysis. A needle is used to obtain a sample of the tissue; it may be a fine needle, core needle, or vacuum-assisted needle. An image-guided biopsy may be used when a tumor appears on an imaging scan but cannot be felt by the doctor or when the area is located deeper inside the body. The type of imaging technology used depends on the location of the suspected cancer site and other factors.

          • Diversified Musculoskeletal Specialty Radiology


            from Neal Browne Added 38 0 0

            Diversified Radiology is staffed with highly-trained sub-specialty radiologists who read musculoskeletal patterns with precision. They are some of the best anywhere in noticing patterns, abnormalities, and small details that escape even radiologists generally trained. It's part of their expertise---they read scans in their highly focused specialty usually more than 90% of the time. That gives them, and the physicians, surgeons, and medical staff a far more accurate and quick read, and benefits the patient is making the treatment more specific and accurate.

                    • Going 3D: the Latest in CT Scanners


                      from Lee Memorial Health System Added 189 0 0

                      It’s the most advanced imaging scanner in Lee County. When doctors need quick access to better see what’s going on it the body, they can now rely on a new 3D scanner. 3D images are going from the movies into the exam room. “What we’re seeing here is a 3D representation of the arteries in a patient’s neck. And what you can see is that the image is actually rotating.” Diagnosing everything from heart disease to stroke, doctors are making use of high tech CT scanners. “A CT scanner uses x-rays to make an image of a patient non-invasively. So we take x-ray images of the patient over 360 degrees and then mathematically reconstruct that into an image or a slice of a patient,” says Dr. Cory Duffek, a radiologist with Lee Memorial Health System’s medical staff. “This is the latest version of CAT scan imaging. This is a 128-slice CAT scan machine, and this is extremely important to Gulf Coast Medical center because we’re becoming the stroke center for Lee County,” says radiologist Dr. William Hearn. The benefit of this particular scanner is speed and accuracy. In under 20 minutes, the detailed image is complete and in the hands of a doctor. “One area that it really plays a big role in is a work up of acute stroke. We are able to not only identify whether its ischemic or hemorrhagic stroke, we can then take it one step farther and identify which blood vessel is occluded causing the stroke. We can also image the patient’s physiology using this and watch the blood flow into the brain,” says Dr. Duffek. The patient is only in the machine for a matter of minutes, which means less exposure to radiation. But the brief time has opened up new windows of opportunity. “Radiologists are all about imaging. We’re about quality and speed. And this allows us to treat our patients in a different way than we’ve had the opportunity before,” says Dr. Hearn. And 3D scanners are giving doctors the best seat in the house.
