Radiologists are highly trained medical
doctors who specialize in diagnosing and treating disease and injury by using
medical imaging techniques. As with many areas in medicine, correct diagnosis
and treatment often depends on the experience and training of the physician, and
therefore it is important to choose carefully for your imaging needs.
Reports are typically available within an hour
of scanning, and our radiologists are always available to review studies with
referring physicians. You can rest assured that all studies performed at Hoag
and Newport Imaging Centers will be interpreted by an NHRA radiologist.
Our Picture Archival and Communication System
(PACS) allows every study to be reviewed by sub-specialized radiologists no matter
where or when it is performed. We utilize 100% digital imaging systems including
64-slice CT, CT-PET fusion, 3T MRI, digital mammography with computer-aided detection
(CAD), and high-resolution ultrasound.
All of our radiologists are board certified and
fellowship trained and many have additional subspecialty certifications. They
hold a variety of academic and teaching appointments at California medical schools
and they are frequently invited to lecture at local and national conferences.
Several are involved with clinical research projects.
