When it Comes to a Radiologic Test or Procedure, Quality Matters

When it Comes to a Radiologic Test or Procedure, Quality MattersThe quality of your medical care is of utmost importance, and that extends to the radiology practice you or your doctor chooses to perform your diagnostic test or interventional service. At RAO, we go above and beyond the standard quality controls demanded by the industry, and it shows in all aspects of your care.
State-of-the-art technologies and equipment – RAO continually investigates and adopts the most advanced diagnostic and therapeutic technologies available. From 3D mammography™ examinations to high-field MRI to 64-slice helical CT, we offer some of the safest and most accurate systems ever created, and we keep our focus on the future so we’re never behind the curve of technological discoveries and breakthroughs. When it comes to elements of vital importance like the early discovery of disease, technological progress can make all the difference.
Board certified doctors who sub-specialize – Our team of radiologists is composed of licensed physicians who have completed four years of medical school, at least a year of internship and four years of residency in general radiology and sub-specialty fellowship training. A number of our radiologists have gone on to earn Certificates of Added Qualification from the American Board of Radiology, which denotes proficiency and ongoing education in evaluations and treatments designed to detect and manage diseases and disorders. Our radiologists have the education and skill to work directly with neurologists and surgeons to help plan – and even perform – specific treatments.
Highly trained technologists – RAO’s team of radiologic technologists is trained and experienced in an array of diagnostic imaging procedures and therapeutic radiation treatments. Each technologist possesses at least two to four years of fundamental education in anatomy, equipment use, patient positioning and comfort, and radiation and other safety protocols. All have passed a national exam certifying his or her qualifications, and receive ongoing education to ensure the highest degree of image quality, accuracy and safety.
ACR Accreditation – RAO maintains continuing accreditation in key diagnostic services, including Positron Emission Tomography (PET), Nuclear Medicine, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Computed Tomography (CT), and Stereotactic Breast Biopsy from the American College of Radiology, so you can feel confident regarding the safety and accuracy of your care.
Our excellence in women’s diagnostic imaging has earned RAO’s Women’s Imaging Center and TimberRidge Imaging Center the Breast Imaging Center of Excellence designation from the American College of Radiology, an honor given to only a select few healthcare providers in Florida.
Advanced Vascular Care – RAO’s Center for Vascular Health (CVH) offers a spectrum of quality vascular and non-vascular care, for a full range of treatment options. We are a radiologic services provider at both Munroe Regional Medical Center and Ocala Regional Medical Center, two of the most respected facilities in Central Florida.
When you consider getting a diagnostic scan or interventional treatment, look to RAO for the region’s latest technologies, caring, experienced doctors, highly-trained technologists and an extensive line of services designed to provide incomparable medical care.
