- Outpatient services. These are usually less invasive minimizing your length of stay. By reducing recovery times you can get back on your feet and to your daily routine quickly and safely.
- Fast turn-around times. We use a variety of processes and procedures designed to get results that are as fast as they are accurate.
- Safety. Our radiologists follow strict protocols to ensure that necessary diagnostic procedures minimize radiation exposure, keeping it at safe levels without compromising the effectiveness of the test.
- Voice recognition. We use advanced voice-assisted technology that significantly reduces the time required to process imaging results. Radiologists simply dictate their interpretations into a system that automatically recognizes their voice and creates a report.
