Imaging and Breast Center
Radiology is the field of medicine that focuses on diagnosing and treating disease and injury using medical imaging techniques: X-rays, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasound, and nuclear medicine. These techniques can be used to detect breast cancer, cervical cancer, cystic fibrosis, and lymphoma, among other conditions.
Radiologists act as expert consultants 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 (ABR). This indicates a high level of training and 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 equipment is surveyed regularly by qualified medical physicists to ensure that it is functioning properly and that the technologists administering the tests are certified.
TPMG Imaging and Breast Centers are widely known for their affordable and convenient services:
