Our Radiologists

 

At Cardinal Points Imaging of the Carolinas, we know that accurate answers are the most important factor in choosing an imaging center. As independent imaging centers, Cardinal Points Imaging partners with Greensboro Radiology to provide the highest level of expertise, experience and dedication to our referring providers and their patients.

All exams performed at CPIC’s locations are reviewed and interpreted by Greensboro Radiology’s sub-specialized radiologists. Greensboro Radiology is a large, growing group of 75 radiologists subspecialized in body (thoracic and abdominal), breast/mammography, musculoskeletal, neuroradiology and interventional radiology. In addition to interpretive services, they provide on-site radiologist coverage at each of our four locations. While the group comes from Greensboro, they have broad coverage throughout North Carolina including radiologists who live, work and play in the Triangle.

With the support of our radiology group, Cardinal Points Imaging will elevate our services by consistently offering the following benefits:

  • Interpretations by sub-specialized radiologists for every exam, every time.
  • Onsite radiologists at every one of our four locations every day.
  • Potential expanded hours for contrast studies for greater appointment access.
  • Enhanced breast radiology services with every mammogram read by specialized breast radiologists and expanded diagnostic and screening exams for more streamlined access to care.
  • Easy access to radiologists for consultations via a dedicated radiologist line answered live 24/7.

 

Our radiology partner’s mission, leading radiology excellence through personalized and compassionate care, aligns exactly with that of Cardinal Points Imaging.  For us, it is all about providing elevated imaging experiences for our patients and our providers.

For Patients

 

At Cardinal Points Imaging of the Carolinas, we know that accurate answers are the most important factor in choosing an imaging center. As independent imaging centers, Cardinal Points Imaging partners with Greensboro Radiology to provide the highest level of expertise, experience and dedication to our referring providers and their patients.

The additional training, experience and expertise of Cardinal Points Imaging’s radiologists make them uniquely qualified to diagnose complicated conditions that may go undetected by someone with less training and provide confident results to critical health screening exams.

 

Why does it matter which radiologists read the exams?

It takes a skilled technologist and advanced technology to produce clear, high-quality images from a screening or diagnostic imaging exam. But it is the skilled training, experience and expertise of a specialty-trained radiologist to provide accurate answers for the proper diagnosis, treatment and care of a patients’ medical condition.

 

What is a radiologist?

Radiologists are medical doctors that specialize in diagnosing and treating injuries and diseases using medical imaging (radiology) procedures (exams/tests) such as X-rays, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), nuclear medicine, positron emission tomography (PET) and ultrasound.

Radiologists complete at least 13 years of training, including medical school, a four-year residency, and most often, an additional one- or two-year fellowship of very specialized training, such as radiation oncology, pediatric radiology, or interventional radiology. They are certified by the American Board of Radiology, and they have exacting requirements for continuing medical education throughout their practicing years.

 

What does a radiologist do?

A radiologist studies and interprets the images people have taken of various parts of the body in order to diagnose and treat patients. Radiologists can be onsite or offsite, but many people prefer onsite radiologists so they have the opportunity to interact directly with their radiologist.

What is a subspecialized radiologist?

When it comes to radiology, there is more than meets the eye. While there are general fields of radiology, there are also specific subspecialties a radiologist can choose to specialize in after their regular schooling and training to become a radiologist. To specialize in one of these subspecialties, a radiologist must undergo additional training.

What are some radiology subspecialties?

  • Breast imaging: breast imaging focuses on radiology used to diagnose breast issues including mammography, ultrasound, biopsies, and more.
  • Body imaging: body radiologists employ imaging to diagnose and help other physicians treat diseases and conditions located in the chest and abdomen. These radiologists use many types of radiology to examine abnormalities and issues in all the major organs, except the heart.
  • Musculoskeletal imaging: MSK radiology provides additional depth in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases or injuries of the joints, bones, muscles and spine in both adult and pediatric patients.
  • Neuroradiology: a subspecialty of radiology that focuses on identification and diagnosis of issues related to the nervous system, spine, and head and neck using specific neuroimaging methods.
  • Pediatric Radiology: pediatric radiologists specialize in the diagnosis of illnesses, injuries, and diseases found in infants, children, and teenagers using imaging.
  • Interventional Radiology: interventional radiology uses minimally invasive image-guided procedures to treat diseases in the body. The idea is to be able to treat patients using less invasive methods.
  • Cardiac radiology: a cardiac radiologist interprets medical imaging to diagnose diseases related to the heart such as heart disease and other defects related to the heart.
