Medical Imaging Operations

Soup to nuts. We know Medical Imaging.

Start at the beginning; A clinician with a patient problem. Clinicians make diagnostic and therapeutic decisions in the absence of complete information. Medical imaging tests are one very powerful tool they have to gather more information. The goal of the medical imaging team is to reduce the uncertainty of that clinician. Medical Imaging does this by satisfying the request (order) for imaging services in a way that delivers actionable information. Easier said than done. At the same time, the medical imaging service line is an important business unit with a complex P&L. Technical and professional revenues still contribute greatly to the institutional bottom line when balanced against expensive facility, equipment and staff costs.
