January 6, 2009 – Despite looming reimbursement cuts to outpatient imaging scheduled to go into effect in 2010, one outpatient center group announced another a new outpatient imaging center in Westbrook Health Center, in Waukesha, Wisc.
The new center allows Center for Diagnostic Imaging (CDI) to expand services to include high-field (1.5T) MRI, multi-slice CT and X-ray, with plans to add digital mammography and ultrasound to its portfolio in early 2010.
Part of CDI’s strategy has been to focus on upgrading its clinics and equipment. These enhancements have enabled the delivery of advanced imaging services, such as 3-Tesla MRI and 20-slice CT, to patients in accessible outpatient settings, says James E. Youker, M.D., CDI radiologist and medical director, Medical College of Wisconsin. According to Dr. Youker, updating equipment enhances its diagnostic accuracy and provides faster, safer care for our patients.
