Women tend to be especially interested in the quality of their healthcare, and likely to perform intensive investigation about the providers they choose. We at Radiology Associates Imaging strongly encourage this research. You’ll find that RAI’s Women’s Diagnostic Centers are highly comprehensive, full-service centers dedicated to women’s diagnostic services.
What does this mean for you? It ensures that you benefit from the collaborative experience and information-sharing of RAI’s team of Board Certified radiologists, who subspecialize in all aspects of women’s imaging and deliver exceptional training, education, experience and commitment to every test, every patient, every time.
Only Experienced and Highly Trained Specialists
RAI’s Women’s Diagnostic Centers are led by an experienced team, some who are women, who lend a personal understanding and experience to the diagnostic team. They make it part of their job to confirm that every test is performed with empathy and respect, and that all images are diligently scrutinized for accuracy. And every member of the Women’s Diagnostic Services team, subspecialize in one or more women’s imaging services, including diagnostic radiology and breast imaging protocols.
This is especially important when you consider that many diagnostic practices send their images out to be read by individuals outside their oversight. Not at RAI’s Women’s Diagnostic Centers. Here, all images are reviewed by a doctor who specializes in that particular area, such as breast imaging, who can engage in a personal conversation with a patient’s clinician and directly assist in treatment planning when needed. That’s the kind of care we demand for every patient we see.
Only Advanced, Safe and Accurate Diagnostic Services
RAI was among the first regional providers to offer 3D mammography™ exams, also called tomosynthesis, which produce multiple images of breast tissue from varying angles, for greater detail and accuracy. The superior clarity is especially beneficial to the estimated 47% of women with dense breast tissue, which can both conceal tumors and create shadows in healthy tissue. 3D mammography™ technology is up to 40% better at discovering invasive breast cancer, and produces far fewer false positive results, reducing both supplementary exams and patient anxiety – and is the standard of care at RAI.
RAI also remains at the forefront of other women’s diagnostic technologies, including the latest in stereotactic breast biopsy, breast MRI, breast ultrasound, pelvic ultrasound and DEXA bone density scanning.
RAI maintains ongoing accreditation from the American College of Radiology for safety and accuracy in breast ultrasound, stereotactic breast biopsy, MRI and other diagnostic testing specialties. These and other factors are why RAI is one of the few regional women’s diagnostic practices to be designated a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology.
Only One You
If you need a diagnostic imaging test, from a routine walk-in 3D mammography™ exam to a doctor-referred exam like image-guided biopsy or pelvic ultrasound, do your research, and you’ll discover that RAI’s Women’s Diagnostic Centers are an excellent choice.
