About Radiology & Imaging
Radiology / Imaging plays an often critical role in the correct diagnosis
and treatment of many conditions, so the experience and training of the
radiologists interpreting studies and performing image-guided procedures
is paramount. Our radiologists are all board certified, fellowship trained,
and sub-specialized. Many hold academic and teaching appointments at California
medical schools, are involved in clinical research projects, and are asked
to lecture at local and national conferences.
A Higher Standard
Unlike many other Radiology / imaging centers, Hoag hospitals and outpatient
centers meet the strict requirements set by the DNV NIAHO Accreditations
Program. Hoag Breast Care Center is the only breast center in Orange County,
and one of few nationwide, to be designated a Certified Quality Breast
Center by the NQMBC. Our Picture Archival and Communication System (PACS)
allows every study to be reviewed by sub-specialized radiologists no matter
where or when it is performed. We utilize 100% digital imaging systems
including 64-slice CT, CT-PET fusion, 3T MRI, digital mammography with
computer-aided detection (CAD), and high-resolution ultrasound.
All Radiology & Imaging can be scheduled through our centralized call
center and Hoag's locations throughout Orange County offer added convenience.
Our technologists and support staff are dedicated to patient-centered
care. Reports are typically available within an hour of scanning, and
referring physicians can choose to receive reports by fax the moment they
are finalized. Critical results are always called to the referring physician
