Radiologists offer more than just a radiology report.
Our Board Certified, Fellowship Trained physicians are a vital part of the care team needed to confidently diagnose and treat illnesses in the communities we serve.
Advancements in imaging have transformed the practice of medicine and radiology. Keeping pace with these advances has led to the formation of DRA, to combine the experience and knowledge of over 45 providers and growing. DRA physicians have trained at the nation’s most prestigious institutions and include a team of Board Certified Diagnostic and Interventional Radiologists with fellowship training in all essential subspecialties. In addition to the specialty of radiology, our physicians include two Board Certified and Fellowship Trained Vascular Surgeons.
DRA provides comprehensive medical treatments paired with exceptional continuity of care collaboration and support. We are committed to top-quality patient care which includes providing timely and accurate communication of information to physicians and specialists.
By accessing prior exams, communicating with other physicians and specialists in the area, and understanding the patients’ needs, DRA Radiologists serve as well-informed experts in diagnostic and interventional care, and are advocates for keeping up with the latest technology to provide the highest quality services.
DRA offers over-read interpretation services to physician practices who own or lease their own imaging equipment. Services are provided by Board Certified, Fellowship Trained subspecialized radiologists who are committed to delivering high quality, cost-effective radiological services. All overreads are dictated by DRA physicians and reports provided.
Among our over-read services is dental Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT). The professional component services associated with interpretation of CBCT scans includes both the planning and findings related to disease and abnormalities demonstrated on a CBCT scan study. We offer over-read services to support diagnostic requirements that may introduce professional medical liability risk. Having scans read by an experienced and credentialed Radiologist provides peace of mind in ruling out or identifying any extra-dental findings.
PET (positron emission tomography) scans are utilized to diagnose and keep a careful watch on a variety of illnesses. PET scans are most commonly used to detect cancers, heart problems, brain disorders, and problems with the nervous system. PET scans utilize molecular imaging, which is a very precise way of detecting disease on the cellular and molecular level. PET scans work by injecting a tiny amount of radioactive tracers into the bloodstream, which the PET scan machine can then detect and analyze via 3D images. PET scans take between 2-4 hours to complete. PET scans are excellent at analyzing the biological processes of the body and at detecting pathology such as cancer at the very earliest stages.
DRA provides PET support in the following areas:
- Supervision Interpretation
- Protocol Development
- Technology Selection
- Obtaining NRC Licensure
- PET Program ACR Accreditation
- Fixed and Mobile PET
