About Us

The digital imaging technologies at Newton-Wellesley allow for the electronic transmission of imaging data from one location to another at the click of a mouse. Images are then stored electronically in our Picture Archive and Communication System (PACS). PACS allows images to be instantly accessed by radiologists and other Hospital physicians and departments, leading to quicker and more accurate interpretation of images.
