Why Choose BayCare Imaging?
Not all imaging centers are created equal. It’s important that you choose an imaging center that will get you accurate results the first time you go. This will save you time, money, and unnecessary exposure to radiation. Here are a few reasons why you should choose a BayCare imaging center.
- BayCare believes in the importance of using the most up-to-date, current technology. While some imaging centers may skip upgrades and use equipment that is past its prime, BayCare continuously upgrades its equipment to ensure we are offering the highest standard of care to our patients.
- Your exam is only as good as the radiologist who is reading it, and all our radiologists are board-certified. Many are also fellowship-trained in specialty areas such as breast, musculoskeletal, neurology and vascular interventions.
- While many imaging centers have radiologists off-site, our board-certified radiologists are always on-site. This gives our technologists who are performing your exam direct access to the radiologists for consultation. This ensures we provide the best images possible for the most accurate diagnosis.
- BayCare’s imaging technologists are not only compassionate and caring; they are accredited in their field and participate in ongoing education, ensuring they are up-to-date in their specialty area.
