Mille Lacs Health System has installed a new, updated, state-of-the-art radiographic (X-ray) system on their Onamia campus. Aligning with its Mission Statement to be “the best place to give and receive care,” the Radiology Department will now have digital radiology available to patients who need radiographic imaging.
Radiology is one of the main diagnostic tools used in health care today. MLHS experiences approximately 177,000 patient encounters in one year. Some of those occur in the neighborhood clinics, and over nine thousand of those occur in the ER or Urgent Care. Of those, over six thousand patients will end up needing an X-ray.
