Are D.C. radiologists qualified to give expert testimony?

Yes. We are board-certified experts in our field and have had numerous courtroom appearances.

Can we access your PACS system to retrieve the reports ourselves or check the status of the reports on our patients?

Yes, we can provide your office with a login and password to access our PACS, retrieve the reports in digital format, and copy directly into your office software.

Do D.C. radiologists read for physicians other than D.C.'s?

Yes. We read for D.C., D.O. and M.D.'s of various specialties such as orthopedic surgeons, psychiatrists, and neurologists.

Can I send digital x-rays to your office to be read?

Certainly. As long as your system is DICOM-compatible, we will provide you our DICOM send information via email to enter into your system to send through a VPN. You will need our IP address, AE title, and port number to send. Once this information is entered, it should be easy to send a patient’s x-rays with a few clicks of the mouse.

What is your turnaround time for radiology reports?​

We attempt to read all the studies that are checked in on any given day unless they are received late in the day. They are typed shortly thereafter; and when approved by us, the reports are sent back to the referring doctor. Some minor delays may be expected in cases of illnesses, vacation, holidays, and weekends.

Can we access the images of our patients on your PACS system and retrieve the reports?

Yes, we can provide your office with a login and password to access the PACS, giving you the ability to see any of the images from your patient’s study as well as any annotations we place on the images. In addition, you can choose to retrieve a PDF copy of the approved reports. Individual images can also be printed in your office directly from our system.
