Hawkeye Nuclear Medicine
271 Carew Street, Springfield, MA 01104
413-748-9200

Hawkeye is a combination of two diagnostic tools in one powerful system. This new technology can help doctors pinpoint the exact location and nature of the disease to help provide effective cancer and cardiac care.

Mercy Medical Center's Hawkeye Functional Anatomic Mapping combines computed tomography (CT) and the nuclear scanning technique, positron emission tomography (PET). The Hawkeye system uses the strengths of each technique to examine both the physiology and anatomy. This results in two different kinds of images (without moving the patient) to allow doctors the ability to correlate the two images precisely.

By pinpointing the disease locations, Hawkeye imaging can help physicians plan surgery and radiation therapy, then track the progress of follow-up treatments. Hawkeye studies can aid highly accurate diagnoses which can potentially reduce the number of tests and surgeries.




ACR-Accredited Facility
Mercy Medical Center has been awarded a three-year term of accreditation in nuclear medicine as a result of a recent survey by the American College of Radiology (ACR).

The ACR, headquartered in Reston, Virginia, awards accreditation to facilities for the achievement of high practice standards after a peer-review evaluation of its practice. Evaluations are conducted by board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field. They assess the qualifications of the personnel and the adequacy of facility equipment. The ACR is a national organization focusing on the practice of medical imaging and radiation oncology and the delivery of comprehensive health care services.
