Emergency Radiology involves performing and interpreting imaging examinations on acutely ill and injured patients seen in the Emergency Department.
These tests include the use of the most modern and advanced technology available, such as computed tomography (CT) scans, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasound, nuclear medicine, and digital imaging.
Emergency Department physicians frequently include these examinations as part of the initial evaluation of patients with illnesses such as pneumonia, to severe, life-threatening injuries from motor vehicle accidents.
Our radiologists provide services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
We provide personal consultation with staff physicians and physicians-in-training, as well as services to other hospital emergency departments through the use of PACS (Picture Archiving and Communication System that allows the electronic transmission of images from remote locations) any time of the day or night.
Our subspecialized physicians are available to provide expert interpretations at over 90 locations across West Michigan; all accredited by the American College of Radiology.
Our Emergency Radiology imaging team is board-certified and has a combined 535 years of experience.
In 2016, our ER radiologists read and interpreted ER studies for over 240,000 patients.
This experience speaks to accurate, high-quality results for our patients.
