Images are done right here -- the first time. Patients who have their imaging done elsewhere may find they need their exams repeated, this time by our top technologists, because their images are not accurate enough to proceed with their treatment. When this happens not only are you exposed to radiation again, but the need for a repeat study ultimately causes the total cost of your care to be more expensive, not less.
