Our team of radiologists, physician assistants, radiology practitioner assistants, radiology technologists and nurses use imaging technology to diagnose and treat diseases.
Radiology equipment includes CatScans, MRIs and ultrasounds. There are also traditional x-ray machines, DEXA, nuclear medicine, PET scanners, and "cath labs". MRI and ultrasound machines use radio waves (MRI) and sound waves (US). The others use x-rays. We always use the least amount of radiation whenever we use x-ray equipment.
As you can imagine, the radiology equipment is very expensive. We spend a good deal of time determining how best to spend the resources we have. We want to ensure that all of our patients are imaged appropriately, using the most up-to-date equipment. With a few exceptions, we have chosen to mainly work with equipment from Philips Healthcare. Philips has exceptionally advanced imaging equipment and is a leader in reducing radiation dose – both to patients and to the radiologist.
