Strategic Radiology practices have more subspecialized radiologists combined than any other radiology provider in the country.
Nuclear Medicine/PET Physicians
Chest and Cardiac Radiologists
Radiologists look for the presence of disease or pathology in medical images to the best of their professional ability. The most highly skilled radiologists have high accuracy rates and a low percentage of false positive exams. There is some evidence to support the idea that subspecialization in radiology improves quality by:

Our member practices have access to an in-house Subspecialty Reading Network for Strategic Radiology members that provides after-hours and weekend subspecialized coverage in the following subspecialties:
SR Subspecialty Reading Network provides a better platform for the long-term hospital relationship, eliminating the ‘we/they’ finger-pointing scenario.
Every key stakeholder on the hospital side of the equation has remained extremely pleased with the clinical quality of the service and appreciates the fact that it is an extension of our group through Strategic Radiology, and not an unaffiliated, third-party entity.
The cornerstone of Strategic Radiology’s Subspecialty Reading Network is its ability to quickly establish a strong foundation of trust and mutual respect between its radiologists and member group hospital affiliates. Because the SR after-hours Subspecialty Reading Network is owned, staffed, and used by Strategic Radiology practices, it’s held accountable to delivering the exact same high standards of clinical service quality shared by member practices.
