Imaging and Breast Center
A radiologist is a medical doctor who specializes in diagnosing and treating disease and injury through the use of medical imaging techniques such as x-rays, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), nuclear medicine, positron emission tomography (PET), fusion imaging, and ultrasound. Radiologists play a crucial role in your healthcare by acting as an expert consultant to your referring physician aiding him or her in choosing the proper examination, interpreting the resulting medical images, and using test results to direct your care. TPMG radiologists are board-certified by the American Board of Radiology, an indication of a high level of training and demonstrated excellence in the field. Additionally, TPMG Imaging Centers in Williamsburg and Newport News, are accredited by the American College of Radiology (ACR). ACR accreditation ensures that the physicians supervising and interpreting your medical imaging meet stringent education and training standards. ACR accreditation also signifies that the imaging equipment is surveyed regularly by qualified medical physicists to ensure that it is functioning properly and that the technologists administering the tests are certified.
