Notice of Misaddressing Emails
On April 24, 2018, Dignity Health discovered that an emailing list formatted by Healthgrades, a business associate, contained a sorting error. This sorting error caused an email notice intended for a select group of patients to be sent to the wrong person. The email was meant to notify recipients that they can now schedule appointments online with their physicians.
With diagnostic imaging, an x-ray image
is produced when a small amount of
radiation passes through the body and
strikes a sheet of sensitive film placed
on the other side of the body.
Interventional radiology is a
subspecialty of radiology in which
minimally invasive procedures are
performed using image guidance.
A PET CT uses special x-ray equipment to obtain
image data from different angles around the
body. The computer takes the data and creates
a visual image of each slice of information.
The radiologist is able to review the slices of
information in sequence, which creates a
two-dimensional image of the inside of your body.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a safe diagnostic
imaging technique which uses a magnetic field and radio
waves to produce pictures of your body. X-rays are not used.
Our ultrasound system generates an advanced
level of image quality to help your physician
diagnose your condition with confidence.
Mammography is an X-ray examination which uses extremely low doses of radiation to obtain accurate images of the breasts. It is the best way of detecting small cancers even before they can be felt.
