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 immediately.
