Qualifed, Competent Professionals

Medical imaging procedures must be accurate and precise. An image is only as good as the person who takes it; the treatment is only as effective as the individual who administers it. We have a board-certified radiologist on site that can consult with your ordering provider about any of your test results.

How can you be sure that your imaging exam is being performed by a qualified, competent professional? Just ask. When you meet the person who will perform your examination, ask if he or she is certified by a national agency or licensed by the state. In addition to asking about qualifications, you should ask questions about the procedure you’re scheduled to receive. A competent radiology technologist will be able to explain the procedure in detail, help you prepare for it, and tell you what to expect.
