PHC Sets Mamo Tracking System
Peninsula Hospital Center Board Member and Benefactor, Lucy Salpeter, recently received a hands-on demonstration of the new Mammography Reporting System (MRS) recently implemented at the Hospital Center, located at 51-15 Beach Channel Drive in Arverne.
This new MRS, purchased through a “generous gift” from Salpeter, is the most widely used tracking and reporting system in the world for all breastrelated procedures including mammo-graphy and ultrasound.
Patricia Murray, RT (R)(M) (seated in photo) explained to the benefactor how the MRS System automatically tracks cases, generates patient results as well as recall letters.
Every added note by the radiologist or physician becomes part of the patient’s permanent medical history throught the use of the new sysem.
Saltpeter says she choose her ift to the hospital center carefully and with purpose.
“I wanted to give a gift which would be used by many people at the Hospital Center,” said Salpeter. “This is a wonderful addition to the already-excellent Department of Radiology and it is another way to make sure the Hospital Center’s patients receive the best care available.”
Jeff Papkin, RT (R)(MR), Acting Director, Imaging Services Dept. at PHC agrees wholeheartedly.
“This MRS system is accurate, easy to read and assists our department in making extra sure that our patients’ follow ups are done timely and that their records are clear, precise and current. This new system is state-of-theart and we are very grateful to Mrs. Salpeter for her generosity.”
A spokesperson for the hospial center said that “many people will benefit from this extra safeguard.”
The spokesperon added that the new system is particularly timely since October has been designaed as s Breast Cancer Month.”
