Doctors in specialized divisions of the department provide diagnostic and interventional imaging services. Radiologists, physicists, technologists, nurses and other support staff who have expertise staff the divisions. This team approach allows examinations to be performed, interpreted and delivered to your doctor on the same day in most cases.
