Ultrasound Services Upgraded at UHS Delaware Valley Hospital
In keeping with its plan to keep pace with technology upgrades, UHS Delaware Valley Hospital just purchased new ultrasound equipment. In addition to enhancing image quality, the new equipment allows the technician to view other types of radiological images while performing the ultrasound test. For example, if a woman is having an ultrasound in follow up to a mammogram, the tech can view the mammogram on the ultrasound’s screen as she also views the ultrasound image. This can be very helpful in locating the precise area that needed further study, at the same time the exam is being performed.
In addition to breast ultrasound, patients can also have ultrasounds of their carotid arteries (neck arteries), abdomen, vascular system (veins) or gynecological and/or obstetrical images. Echocardiograms are also offered.
The hospital is also pleased to welcome Ultrasonographer, Nina Alexopouls to its staff. Nina moved to the area from downstate and says, “I love it here. Everyone is so kind and nice. I am excited about caring for patients at Delaware Valley.”
UHS Delaware Valley Hospital offers some evening and Saturday hours for many of its imaging services. Patients’ doctors do not have to be affiliated with Delaware Valley Hospital in order for patients to have their testing done locally. Appointments can be made by calling 607-865-2126.
UHS Delaware Valley Hospital is a 25-bed facility based in Walton and offering diagnostic and treatment services, acute care and 24-hour emergency care. The hospital is a member of UHS, a locally-owned, not-for-profit, 916-bed hospital and health care system serving the greater Binghamton area from more than 60 locations around New York's Southern Tier.
