Subspecialty Trained

Not all radiologists are alike. Our radiologists are subspecialty trained. They specialize in imaging specific body regions and processes. Subspecialization also means that their interpretation is more detailed and specific, and apt to be more helpful in determining the course of treatment. Their expertise helps you avoid unnecessary imaging exams that can increase your exposure to radiation.
