Our Services

Radiology is a medical specialty that uses different techniques to obtain images of the human body. Radiologists interpret these images to diagnose patients and guide their care. After completing a radiology residency, many radiologists choose to subspecialize to gain further expertise in specific areas. Becoming a subspecialized radiologist involves focused training and additional education beyond the standard radiology residency training (usually 1-2 years). Here are some common radiology subspecialties:  

Pediatric Radiology: Pediatric radiologists specialize in imaging and diagnosis of conditions unique to children and infants, from birth to age 18. 

Breast Imaging: Breast imagers specialize in breast cancer detection and the diagnosis and management of many benign breast conditions. 

Nuclear Medicine: Nuclear medicine radiologists use radioactive material to create images that evaluate various body functions as well as diagnosing and treating diseases.

Neuroradiology: Neuroradiologists specialize in interpreting imaging of the brain, spine, face, eyes, neck and peripheral nerves in order to diagnose conditions such as stroke, tumors, aneurysms and neurodegenerative conditions.

Body Imaging: Body imaging radiologists use their expertise to aid in diagnosis and patient care throughout the chest, abdomen and pelvis. This includes the fields of pulmonology, cardiology, gastroenterology, gynecology and oncology. 

Musculoskeletal Imaging: Musculoskeletal radiologists image and diagnose conditions involving joints, bones, muscles, ligaments and tendons. Additionally, we offer many image-guided treatments for musculoskeletal pain.
