Imaging services are a vital element of the diagnosis and treatment process. They allow doctors to get detailed images of the body’s internal structures. At Winter Park Memorial Hospital, our Imaging Department offers a complete spectrum of advanced technologies in radiology services, including our new PACS system for digital imaging and our high-field open MRI, the first of its kind in Central Florida.
When it comes to imaging, the difference is clear. Winter Park Memorial Hospital offers the preferred digital imaging system for referring physicians in Central Florida, and performs more exams than any other imaging facility in the area. All of our staff members and radiologists are certified by the American College of Radiology on mammography, CT, MRI and ultrasound scans, and all of our breast imaging centers are part of the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers. We accept most insurance and provide a self-pay discount, payment plans and our own Breast Cancer Care Fund, which covers diagnostic breast imaging for women in need. In fact, most insurance plans cover preventative screenings with no copay.
For our patients, that means we have experts on the imaging of different body sections, and these board-certified radiologists have a higher accuracy rate than general radiologists. We also have some of the fastest and most cutting-edge technology available, which both increases the quality of the images and improves our patients’ experiences. For instance, we have fewer call-backs than the national averages for mammography and other imaging exams, which means that with us you’re much less likely to have to return to the hospital for another test than with some other facilities in the area.
Helping Those in Need
We also strive to make our facilities accessible and convenient for all. For women and men in our community who cannot afford mammograms, the Winter Park Memorial Hospital Mammography Scholarship Fund may be able to help. This program, funded by Pink Out Winter Park, raised more than $65,000 since 2011 enabling 180 of our neighbors to receive free mammography services.
