Why do I need a Radiologist?
Radiologist is a doctor, who is especially trained in the interpretation of medical images. WRH is contracted with Diagnostic Medical Imaging; a physicians group who's specialty is the interpretation of CT scans, MRI and Mammography. They provide imaging exam interpretations and consultation services to local physicians, as well as emergency readings via a remote network. The radiologists are on-site every Monday through Friday. After-hours and weekends interpretation services are provided by contract to ensure rapid response whenever the need arises.
All of WRH medical images, except mammography, is digitally archived and can be viewed remotely. Disks or hard copy films can be sent to referring physicians.
