As a radiologic technologist, I am frequently asked, “What did you see?” Throughout the years, my answer to this question has remained the same. I always explain that as a technologist, I have been trained to capture and provide the best quality images possible for our highly trained subspecialty radiologists. It’s this group of physicians who interpret the images we take and offer a diagnosis. I assure our patients that they can take comfort in the training of our registered technologists – all of which have met the standards set forth by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) or American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonographers (ARDMS). Our primary job is to obtain the best images possible. I’m always happy to share that the expertise and training of our radiologists is unmatched as we have some of the top doctors in the country working at Wake Radiology. Our areas of imaging subspecialty include:
- Body Imaging Radiologists- specialize in PET-CT, MRI, CT and ultrasound.
- Breast Imaging Radiologists- specialize in traditional and 3D screening and diagnostic mammography, as well as breast ultrasound, breast MRI, aspirations and biopsies.
- Musculoskeletal Radiologists (MSK) – specialize in bone, cartilage, muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints in the body. This includes rheumatology and bone densitometry (DXA).
- Pediatric Radiologists – specialize in pediatric x-rays, ultrasounds, low dose fluoroscopy and CT’s and MRI’s. Our Pediatric Imaging Center in West Raleigh is the only pediatric outpatient center of its kind in the Triangle.
- Vascular and Interventional Radiologists- specialize in placements of ports and PICC lines, vein treatments (spider and varicose veins) and biopsies of superficial organ.
- Neuoradiologists- specialize in MRI and CT of the brain and spine, myelography, lumbar punctures and angiography.
- PET-CT Radiologists- specialize in PET-CT imaging at our Cary location, the only one of its kind in the Triangle area.
As you can see, answering the “what do you see” question is not always easy to answer. What’s most important, is that we want you to know that the experts at Wake Radiology are explicitly trained to capture and read your images. All of my colleagues agree with me when we say “No One Sees You Like We Do.“
