||Diagnostic Radiology is the branch of medicine that utilizes various advanced technologies to develop high-quality images from which the radiologist can diagnose existing disease processes or abnormalities. These diagnostic interpretations of images are critical in assisting physicians with treatment and care of their patients. The technologies employed in Diagnostic Radiology at Calvert Memorial include modalities such as radiography, computed tomography (CT Scanning), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasound, vascular ultrasound, nuclear medicine, interventional radiology, central venous access device or PICC services, interventional radiology clinic services, and diagnostic cardiac catheterization.
The Radiology Department of Calvert Memorial operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year for most modalities. Some examinations are done by on-call staff or by appointment only. Images are acquired on modern equipment and archived on a Picture Archiving Communication System (PACS System) thus making it possible for information to be shared with other areas of the hospital and physician offices.
Our department is staffed with board certified radiologists from 8:00 am until 6:00 pm Monday through Friday. One full-time radiologist is on duty every Saturday and Sunday. Telemedicine services through the American Radiology Associates physician group is used for readings after hours.
Staff members in the Diagnostic Radiology Department carry credentials and applicable state licenses to ensure the highest level of expertise and continuing competency needed to provide quality patient care. Annual education is completed by each staff member of the department.
