When the region's physicians need a clearer picture of their patients' medical situation to assist with a diagnosis, they need look no further than Charlotte Radiology. From our sub-specialized radiologists to our certified technologists, our commitment to patient care and accuracy is not just an expectation, but rather the vision embraced by each employee and physician.
National organizations such as American College of Radiology (ACR) and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) have begun supporting specific quality indicators and safe practices in the area of radiology. We are one of the first groups to utilize these national resources and measurement tools to help us benchmark our outcomes.
You can be an informed patient! Learn more about how to identify a quality radiology practice at the American College of Radiology Web Site: www.acr.org
We also survey our patients who visit our outpatient facilities. This assessment takes into account factors including your communications with the care team, their responsiveness to your needs and questions, and other factors you observe. Your input ultimately helps us improve our services!
Research consistently shows that patients ask friends and family members who they recommend for a physician. We are pleased to share that more than 95% of our outpatient patients surveyed would recommend us!

All of Charlotte Radiology's technologists have undergone a minimum of two years of additional schooling and are certified in their fields of imaging.
Collectively our physicians have years of training. Most radiologists train for a minimum of 13 years to prepare for their careers in imaging. Charlotte Radiology's physicians have taken that training one step further. 100% of our board certified/eligible physicians are sub-specialty trained and many of them have become experts in their specific areas of imaging by completing fellowship training programs. This ensures you are receiving a high-quality study and more accurate diagnosis. These focused areas include:» Body Imaging (heart, lungs, digestive system)
» Diagnostic Radiology
» Emergency Imaging
» Interventional Radiology (vascular imaging and procedures)
» Interventional Oncology
» Nuclear Medicine
» Orthopedic Imaging
» Pediatric Imaging
Facility & Equipment Accreditations
Like our people, our equipment and technology also go through lengthy accreditation programs to ensure quality. Accreditation processes usually involve onsite evaluation by external agencies based on a set of performance standards. Each of our centers also conducts rigorous testing of their equipment and adheres to national accreditation programs, including:
Breast Imaging Center of Excellence
Each of our Charlotte Radiology diagnostic mammography centers have voluntarily gone through a rigorous review process to assure we meet nationally accepted standards. You can be confident our staff is well qualified, through both education and certification, to perform and interpret your medical images. And, you know that our equipment is appropriate for the test or treatment you will be receiving and our centers meet and exceed quality assurance and safety guidelines.
"Accreditation assesses the overall quality of a practice, including personnel, equipment, quality assurance activities, and ultimately the quality of patient care," said Arl Van Moore, Jr., M.D., FACR chair of the ACR Board of Chancellors and President of Charlotte Radiology. "Accreditation is a clear indication to patients and referring physicians that this facility is committed to providing the highest quality care."
