CRMC Foundation presents $299,082 for Medical Imaging Project

The Coffeyville Regional Medical Center Foundation recently presented CRMC CEO Brian Lawrence with $299,082 for upgrades to the Medical Imaging Department.  The Foundation began an 18 month campaign, “Imagine the Future in Focus” in September 2018 to support expanded services in Medical Imaging through Interventional Radiology and new equipment which provided upgrades to the department making it completely digital.

The majority of funds received during the campaign were through donors who participated in the Kansas Community Service Tax Credit program.   Through the tax credit program, donations made to the CRMC Foundation of $250.00 or more qualified for a 70% credit on Kansas Income Taxes.  The Kansas Community Service Tax Credit program is a great benefit to both the organization receiving the donations and the donor making the gift.

“If you are suffering from chronic or acute pain caused by a known injury or illness, Coffeyville Regional Medical Center now offers many innovative types of interventional radiology treatments to provide you with effective pain management, and in some cases, eliminate the source of your pain altogether”, said Dr. David Gutschenritter, Interventional Radiologist.

Coffeyville Regional Medical Center and the CRMC Foundation are thrilled with the success of this project and the new and enhanced services available to the community. The “Imagine the Future in Focus” campaign completed the transition of our Medical Imaging Department from computed radiography (CR) to 100% digital radiography – meaning CRMC now provides 100% digital imaging to our patients. Digital radiography enables the near-immediate rendering of high-quality medical images, right at the point-of-care. Digital radiography is the gold standard for x-raying patients.

The campaign allowed for the installation of the Siemen’s Artis Zee Multi-Purpose Fluoroscopy System, which is specifically designed to meet the escalating demands of interventional radiology and fluoroscopy – it is a multi-purpose imaging solution. It allows expanded pain management procedures such as Epidural Steroid Injection, Facet Joint Injections, Medical Branch Blocks, Nerve Blocks, Spinal Cord Stimulation and Other Neurostimulation Approaches. New Interventional Radiology procedures include Chest Tube and Chest Port Placement, Gastrostomy Tube Placement, Nephrostomy, Radiofrequency Ablation and Cryoblation for Tumors, Vascular Access Procedures and more. CRMC also added a two-bed patient prep and recovery area for interventional radiology. Other upgrades were made to current x-ray equipment to digital radiography and CRMC added additional x-ray packaging for orthopedic patients.

Earlier in 2019, CRMC installed a new state-of-the-art Hologic Genius 3D Mammography unit. A 3D exam allows doctors to examine your breast tissue layer by layer. So, instead of viewing all the complexities of your breast tissue in a flat image, as with conventional 2D mammography, fine details are more visible and no longer hidden by the tissue above or below.

For more information about our 100% digital Medical Imaging Department, call Christy McCullough, Interventional Radiology Nurse, at 620-252-1179.

Patient Pat Layton, is very delighted to have such services in Coffeyville as she had to travel in the past for procedures she is undergoing currently for her pain management.

“I have been undergoing pain management treatment for the past 25 years due to a failed back surgery with nerve damage. To get pain relief I needed a special treatment and at that time CRMC didn’t offer the service I needed, so I traveled over an hour each treatment time for the past 10 years or so. I am very pleased now that I can receive my pain management treatment in my hometown of Coffeyville. I really enjoy working with and seeing Christy McCullough, Dr. Gutschenritter and staff when I receive my treatment. All my treatments have had zero wait time, the Doctor was very thorough and I was in and out in know time. If someone is in need of pain management I would highly recommend going to CRMC and speaking with the pain management team and see what they could do for you, I am glad I did.”
