RCMC updates radiology department with bone density scanner

1/9/2012


LEBANON, Va. – Russell County Medical Center (RCMC) is updating its radiology department this month by adding a DEXA scanner. A DEXA (dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry) scanner is an enhanced form of X-ray technology that can measure bone loss. The test is usually performed on the lower spine and hips, or sometimes the whole body.

“We’ve recently added a new fluoroscopy machine (used to examine the tissues and deep structures of the body by X-ray), digital mammography and now DEXA to our recently updated radiology department,” said Eddie Greene, AVP/administrator for RCMC. “With key service improvements like centralized scheduling and precertifications, we hope to continue to make RCMC the facility of choice for our community.”

For more information, please call the RCMC radiology department at 276-883-8140.
