With the addition of the new 64-slice CT scan and MRI there was much to celebrate. This advanced diagnostic equipment provides shorter exams and greater comfort for patients, while providing higher diagnostic confidence for doctors.
“These additions complements and extends the range of quality diagnostic services that Hallmark Health System offers residents north of Boston,” said Eric Henrikson, MD, chairman of Imaging Services at Hallmark Heath System. “It provides us with vastly improved image quality and imaging speed, and enhances overall diagnostic confidence we have in all of our studies.”
In addition to the new equipment, John Seccareccio, manager of imaging services at Hallmark Health, unveiled 14 prints that are displayed on the walls of the Imaging Department at Melrose-Wakefield Hospital. Seccareccio created and framed these colorful and unique prints of modalities like MRI, CT scan and X-ray to complement the modern clinical diagnostic environment.
