St. Cloud Hospital in Minnesota Adds Second Endoscopy Room with Radiation-Saving Technology

St. Cloud Hospital in Minnesota recently added a second advanced endoscopy lab based on a system from Omega Medical Imaging. The E-View.AI is the most advanced interventional endoscopy system available and is the only ERCP fluoro system proven to reduce radiation exposure by up to 84% – reducing the radiation risk to staff and patients alike.

Founded in 1886, St. Cloud Hospital has a longstanding commitment to providing personalized, compassionate care for the people of Central Minnesota. As the largest healthcare facility in the region, the Hospital is committed to providing patients with the highest quality care in the safest and most effective manner possible.

At St. Cloud Hospital, they work with three key questions patients may have regarding their care: will it be safe, will it be an effective treatment, and will they be satisfied? A patient’s safety is central to every aspect of care at St. Cloud.

As the only full-service gastroenterology practice in Central Minnesota, the CentraCare Digestive Center provides care that can be trusted. Their expert staff and physicians perform over 40 procedures a day. Procedures such as ERCP, EUS, and Barrett’s Ablation. The Center has been recognized as a high-performing hospital for gastroenterology and GI surgery by U.S. News & World Report’s Best Hospitals rankings.

As part of the CentraCare system, St. Cloud Hospital is able to provide the latest advancements in care, technology, and treatments. That is well represented in the commitment to add a second endoscopy room with the latest technology offering the best in imaging and radiation safety.

The Omega E-View.AI offers several advantages that conventional, non-AI systems cannot:

  • AI detects the doctor’s region of interest – allowing for hands-free operation
  • Maintains the full field of view (FOV) while delivering the highest level of image quality for the region of interest (ROI)
  • Automatically reduces radiation exposure to patients and staff by up to 84%

The E-View.AI is the only lab designed with features specifically developed for ERCP and image-guided endoscopic procedures.

  • ERCP motorized table for better patient positioning
  • Large field-of-view flat-panel detector offers superior image quality
  • Exclusive scatter radiation protection for staff
  • Pivots out of the way for full patient access and for non-X-ray procedures

But what makes St. Cloud Hospital and CentraCare special is more than their facilities and technology, it’s their people. They live in the communities they serve. They are neighbors, friends, and family to the patients in their care. And it shows in their commitment to patient safety.

St. Cloud Hospital has been an Omega customer for over a decade and we are honored to be a part of their commitment to patient safety and superior care.
