Imaging and Women’s History Month

What do Women’s History Month and medical imaging have in common?

Marie Curie.

The first woman to win a Nobel Prize (actually two), Madam Curie was the champion of developing x-ray imaging as well as many cancer treatments. Because of her research and studies we have the modern x-ray machines in use daily around the world.

Here at Frontline ER, we are proud of our imaging capability and of Madam Curie’s legacy.  Our imaging capabilities include not only x-rays and radiological services, but CT scans (including low radiation) and ultrasounds (including fetal ultrasounds).  This capability allows us immediate results, so our physicians can diagnose and treat each patient more quickly.  Couple this with our comprehensive laboratory services and care is quick and thorough, 24/7/365.

Not only did Madam Curie work to develop the x-ray, she was also a pioneer in the treatment of battlefield injuries during World War I.  And you might call her the mother of mobile radiography, as she built truck-based x-ray units during the war.  In a way, she pioneered emergency field ER services.

Emergency medicine has long been a place where women health care professionals have not only served but excelled.  With women representing half of all medical school student bodies and almost half of all physicians, if you seek emergency care, chances are you will be treated by a woman.

Frontline ER is an acute care emergency room providing healthcare services to the communities we live and work within. Give us a call or contact us through our website should you have more questions about our services.

Medical Imaging and Ultrasound Capabilities
Medical Imaging and Ultrasound Capabilities 819 1024 Neal

When you are seeking out acute care, you want to be assured that you will be getting the best care.  Part of that care should include appropriate diagnostic tools.

Frontline ER’s medical imaging and ultrasound capabilities are among the best in healthcare.  Being able to diagnose and provide appropriate treatment in a speedy fashion for your ailments is at the top of our list. Consequently, we have equipped our locations with state-of-the-art capabilities in this area.  This allows us to provide care in a time-critical fashion.

Our locations are equipped with:

  • Computed tomography (CT or CAT Scan)
  • Ultrasound
  • Radiography (Computed X-ray)

CT allows us to quickly and non-invasively scan and review all or part of a patient’s anatomy.  Results are available almost immediately and speed the diagnostic process.

Soft tissues and organs are best reviewed and evaluated via ultrasound and give us a broader capability.

Radiography or X-ray is a more traditional method of evaluation.  Coupled with the other capabilities, our physicians and techs can have a complete and clear review of our patient’s (your) condition.

Give us a call or contact us through our website should you want more information on this capability.
