DELRAY BEACH, Fla., Jan. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- More than 100 local VIPS, physicians and medical staff gathered on Friday, January 25 at Diagnostic Centers of America (DCA) Delray Beach medical facility to commemorate its installation of a revolutionary breakthrough in cardiac and diagnostic medical imaging, enabling physicians to obtain clearer images of the heart in less time than it takes to beat and without the need for beta blockers.
Mayor Rita Ellis cut the ribbon at the medical "open house" party to mark the installation of the new SOMATOM Definition dual source CT system from Siemens Medical Solutions. Diagnostic Centers of America is now the only medical imaging facility in South Florida offering patients the world's most advanced computed tomography (CT) technology, following the more than $2 million installation.
"We were one of the first facilities to bring digital mammography to the area and the first center in South Florida to introduce High Field Open MRI. Now DCA boasts the world's most advanced diagnostic scanner with an optimal combination of the lowest radiation exposure of any medical facility in South Florida and the fastest examination time," said Diagnostic Centers of America CEO Steven Shullman.
"We were extremely pleased that Mayor Ellis could mark the occasion," said NewsMark Public Relations CEO Mark Hopkinson whose PR firm has been retained to showcase the medical facility.
The medical 'Open House' party at 6298 Linton Boulevard presented attendees with a first-ever look at the latest breakthrough in cardiac and diagnostic imaging. Dual X-ray sources supply twice the imaging power while reducing radiation exposure by as much as 50 percent than the most advanced single-source CT systems. It also serves patients not previously eligible for cardiac CT exams because of conditions that preclude use of beta blockers and can reduce the need for invasive diagnostic cardiac procedures. The highest image quality can also be obtained when examining patients who are obese, short of breath or who have elevated heart rates.
