Obstetrical Ultrasound celebrates 30 years of helping to welcome new generations
Obstetrical Ultrasound is celebrating 30 years of stand-alone service at the JGH, independent of Radiology. It performs about 13,000 scans on at least 3,900 women a year for routine fetal development and possible high-risk complications.
New clinic offers fast track for testing and diagnosis of certain conditions
Quicker care for certain medical conditions is now offered by the JGH Clinical Access Service, as an alternative to the Emergency Department. It handles referrals from family doctors whose patients have serious problems that require prompt attention.
Applying artificial intelligence to cancer diagnosis
A pioneering research program is connecting artificial intelligence with the new field of radiomics to heighten the effectiveness of cancer treatment by gleaning as much information as possible from radiological imaging technology.
Surgery + imaging in one room = Safer, more effective procedures
If a stripped-down term like “hybrid surgical suite” doesn’t quite convey the versatility or sophistication of the JGH’s newest operating room, just think of it as the Swiss army knife of surgical facilities.
Becoming a “bridge over troubled waters” in support of cancer patients
Even as a little girl, I knew I wanted to work in a hospital. And this is where I’ve ended up—helping cancer patients and their families at Hope & Cope.
It is with great sadness that everyone in the JGH family notes the passing on April 1 of Dr. Max Palayew, who was Chief of the JGH Department of Radiology from 1971 to 1992.
