The Imaging Department at Maryland General Hospital performs a wide range of diagnostic procedures. The department utilizes a state-of-the-art Picture Archiving and Communications System (PACS) that digitally store the images produced.
Most procedures can be scheduled or performed on the day they are requested. For most studies, a formal report is available on the day the exam is completed. Images and reports can be viewed by a physician connected to the PACS network. This gives your doctor quick and convenient access to the information he or she needs.
