A radiologist who subspecializes in body imaging conducts imaging exams between the throat and the pelvis.

Collaborating With the Patient and Referring Physician

The role of the body imaging subspecialist varies according to the personal physician’s preferences, the radiologist’s experience, the health issue and the patient. At Radiology & Imaging, we prefer to have our radiologists as actively involved in diagnosing and considering treatment options as possible. Our radiologists have extensive training and experience. Their high degree of expertise can greatly benefit the referring physician and other physicians. Radiologist consultation in diagnosis and consideration of treatment options gives the patient the best opportunity for long-term health.
