Morrill County Community Hospital Cardiopulmonary Department would like to announce the addition of our extended echocardiography services! Our new technologist, Brett Hoppes RDCS, will be performing various different types of echocardiography imaging up to 3 days weekly. Brett will be using the top of the line Philips EPIQ CVx cardiac ultrasound system which provides the sharpest imaging and most thorough testing results! This machine also boasts myocardial strain capabilities, a set of enhanced imaging that better defines disease in the heart muscle called cardiomyopathy that makes pumping blood more difficult. Myocardial strain is also important to assist in early detection of cardiotoxicity, or direct damage done to the heart muscle as a result of certain cancer drugs or treatment. Our hospital is blessed to be the only facility in our area currently using this machine. This testing requires an order from a health care provider and insurance authorization. For questions or more information call the Cardiopulmonary Department at (308) 262 1616 ext 126 or Specialty Clinic at (308) 279-7010. Your provider can fax order to (308) 262 2966. We look forward to these added services providing even more complete cardiac care to our patients, community and surrounding area Right Here At Home!
