The Radiology Department of the Knoxville Hospital and Clinics will soon receive an upgrade on equipment thanks to a substantial gift by the hospital foundation. The $20,570 gift will go toward an upgrade of the hospital’s Picture Archiving Communication System, which was put in place three years ago. Amy Heimbaugh, Director of Radiology says the real advantage of the system is the huge increase in efficiency it provides. She says the system makes the images available for viewing much faster and enables physicians in different locations to access the same information simultaneously.
