ARA Diagnostic Imaging traces its roots to 1954, when its founder, Dr. Robert Snider, became the first full-time radiologist at Seton Hospital. He aimed to make imaging services convenient and wanted Austin to have the best medical imaging technology possible.
Today, ARA is one of the largest providers of inpatient and outpatient imaging services in central Texas. Its 110+ radiologists include physicians with subspecialized training in interventional radiology, neuroradiology and neurointerventional surgery, body imaging, digital mammography and women’s imaging, musculoskeletal imaging, nuclear medicine, and pediatric radiology.
ARA is committed to investing in the latest imaging and information technology in order to provide the highest quality of care to patients in central Texas and their referring physicians. ARA has a history of being the first to bring imaging related services to the market.
The staff at ARA takes special care to assure that exams are scheduled quickly, conveniently, and are conducted in a professional, caring manner. The staff strives to meet the physical and emotional needs of patients and to address concerns with compassion and respect.
