MMH introduces a new machine that is the only one of its kind in the country
The state-of-the-art architecture of OMNI legend provides crystal clear images with the earliest possible disease detection
ODESSA, Texas (KOSA) -Midland Health has a new toy that is the only of its kind in not just the region, and not just Texas, but the entire country
The all-digital OMNI legend PET/CT scanner is used to identify a variety of cancers including breast cancer and even pelvic cancer as well as diagnose diseases like Alzheimer’s.
The state-of-the-art architecture of OMNI legend provides crystal clear images with the earliest possible disease detection.
Early detection can catch the disease before it spreads in the body, allowing doctors to begin treatment sooner rather than later.
“It is the number one thing you can do. There are so many things you can do healthily wise but if you don’t know what’s going on it kinda sets you back. But with this scanner, we’re able to know what’s going on immediately so we’re able to get treatments to get people feeling healthy” says, Humberto Molinar, Imaging Nuclear Medicine
This machine has only been at the hospital for a month and already helped dozens of people.
“We’ve done at least I wanna say 50 patients or more and just looking at the images and seeing the data we get from it there are a few things that we prior fully would’ve missed on the old system that now we can detects” said Molinar
The new system can catch something that’s 1.6 millimeters small, that’s less than an inch.
And with this being the only one of its kind in the country, other hospitals in the area have already contacted MMH about it.
“It’s happened a lot. I’ve gotten a lot of phone calls and people wanna know how the images look, how it’s working, and how the patient’s benefitting from it. We get a lot of those. If they wanna see hands-on what we experience it’s all been positive” said, Molinar
OMNI Legend is the most advanced scanner available, and MMH has one of the first in the entire world.
