All Radiologists are not Created Equal!

When you walk into an imaging center, it’s nice to receive a warm welcome at the front desk and be made comfortable by the technologist conducting your exam, but what about the Radiologist who reviews your exam?

 

There are 2 areas to consider when it comes to Radiologists: training & certification.

 

Training & Certification

 

The major element that separates a good radiologist from a great radiologist is his or her training and certification.

 

Fellowship and/or Subspecialty-Trained

 

When a radiologist is fellowship and/or subspecialty trained, he or she has gone through additional years of in-depth training, which takes place after medical school and residency. He or she is trained in a specific area of radiology, such as magnetic resonance imaging or nuclear medicine, and/or a specific area of the body, such as breast.

 

American Board of Radiology (ABR) Certified

 

A radiologist who is board certified by the ABR is required to:

 

- Stay up to date when it comes to advancements in the field and new practices in his or her specialty area
 
- Maintain a high level of quality in their practice, as each ABR certified radiologist is closely monitored and held to specific standards

 

The Clermont Team
