The hospital uses a Teleradiology system. We send exams to be read by the Radiologist via DSL line. This decrease the turn around time healthcare givers have waiting on patient reports. Our diagnostic images are digitized while our CT and Ultrasound are captured directly.

Austin Peay State University began a two-year Radiology Technology program in 2004 and PCMC, along with five other facilities, became a site for clinical training. Roy Duncan is the Clinical Instructor and was voted "Instructor of the Year' by the graduating class. We are working to ensure the future of healthcare is of the highest quality.
