RSN radiologists harness their collective wealth of clinical expertise to deliver fast, accurate, and personalized imaging services. By working in tandem with other clinicians on the healthcare continuum, we can ensure the most thorough and appropriate patient exams, eliminate unnecessary utilization, and be vigilant for other related health concerns.
To schedule an appointment, please ask your physician to contact the scheduling department at one of our locations.
Diagnostic imaging provides essential information in the care of patients. Diagnostic imaging physicians complete 1 year clinical internships prior to their 4 year diagnostic radiology residencies.
This clinical training and experience provide the radiologist with a valuable perspective as a consultant, helping referring physicians integrate advanced imaging into the diagnosis and treatment of their patients.
Many diagnostic imaging radiologists pursue further subspecialty fellowship training to hone their skills in areas of particular interest or need. These radiologists are skilled in a broad range of sophisticated imaging techniques, ranging from x-ray and fluoroscopy to MRI and CT scanning.
RSN works in consultation with neurosurgeons, neurologists, and primary-care physicians to interpret patients’ neuroradiology exams and determine the best course of treatment.
Our neuroradiology capabilities include:
- Evaluation of atherosclerosis, arterial aneurysms, intracranial aneurysms, and other vascular pathology
- Identifying skull fractures and brain injury in trauma patients
- Diagnosing blood clots or bleeding in stroke patients
- Identifying blockages in the carotid arteries
- Diagnosing disc problems, spinal tumors, spinal abscesses, or other spinal problems
- Diagnosing dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, and other neurologic conditions
- Assessment of suspected or proven brain tumors or seizure foci
- Localization and staging of head and neck tumors
“Because of the vast number of neurologic conditions, a high level of expertise is needed when it comes to diagnosing them.”
— Dr. Ronald Kizziar , Neuroradiologist, RSN
“Each modality offers its own particular advantages for the diagnosis and evaluation of neurologic disease, and we are uniquely trained and know which exams are most appropriate for our patients’ individual needs.”
— Richard Koesel, MD, Neuroradiologist, RSN
Musculoskeletal (MSK) radiologists are specially trained to diagnose conditions of the bones, joints, and soft tissue in the extremities, resulting from circumstances such as accidents, sports injuries, heredities, and lifestyle.
Our MSK capabilities include:
- Evaluation of trauma and sports-related injuries
- Evaluation of inflammatory and degenerative conditions
- Evaluation of the large and small joints
- Examination of muscles, tendons and ligaments and the soft tissues and fluids that surround the joints
- Evaluation of avulsion fractures, stress fractures and ligament and tendon injuries
- Diagnosis of tumors and diseases of the skeletal system
- Evaluation of unexplained joint pain
- Evaluation of postoperative knee and shoulder problems
“When you are looking for a diagnostic resource for patients with problems related to the musculoskeletal system, it’s important to establish a relationship with a radiology group that is skilled in a variety of modalities and capable of interpreting images correctly.”
— James Hasenauer, MD, MSK Radiologist, RSN
As part of RSN’s philosophy of partnership, we strive to collaborate with referring physicians and other specialists involved in the patient care continuum in order for the most effective treatment program to be tailored to the needs of the individual.
- Diagnosing, staging and restaging of various cancers with CT, MRI, nuclear medicine bone scan, and PET/CT
- Determining the presence and size of a tumor to assist with surgical and/or radiation treatment planning
- Evaluating the effectiveness of chemotherapy, radiation, surgery, or medication
- Functional imaging of the body with nuclear medicine to localize a site of intestinal bleeding, find a stress fracture, and evaluate gastric emptying, and measure gall bladder function
- Functional imaging of the heart with nuclear medicine, MRI, and CT
“It’s no secret that when it comes to cancer, early detection is paramount. Early detection means early treatment, and early treatment saves lives. This was why I became a radiologist and why I chose my subspecialty. This is about people—people who deserve my best.”
— David Greenberg, MD, Oncologic Imaging Radiologist, RSN
Compassion and excellence. Our patients can feel confident that they will be treated with the utmost compassion by our specialized team of radiologists, technologists, nurses, and support staff. Our comprehensive breast imaging centers have all received the Breast Imaging Center of Excellence designation from the American College of Radiology.
We are devoted to the diagnostics and treatment of diseases and conditions unique to women. Our goal is to provide each patient with an exceptional imaging exam and state-of-the-art technology in a relaxed, comfortable environment. We provide excellent comprehensive breast imaging, including digital mammography, breast ultra-sound, and breast biopsy.
RSN’s women’s imaging services include:
- Screening and diagnostic mammography using 3D-Mammography
- Diagnostic breast ultrasound
- Breast MRI for screening high risk women, problem-solving breast complaints, and determining extent of disease in cancer patients
- Image-guided biopsies with mammography, 3D-mammography, ultrasound, and MRI
- DEXA scans for determining bone density
- Ultrasound for pregnancy evaluations
- Pelvic ultrasound
- Hysterosalpingograms for fertility issues
- Cystodefecography for pelvic floor problems, including incontinence
“One of our goals is to decrease the time needed for diagnosing breast cancer. We know that the clock starts ticking the moment a woman receives word that her screening mammogram may be abnormal. That’s why we work hard to complete the evaluation from diagnostic mammogram to breast biopsy as expeditiously as possible. We strive to provide answers that allow women to take control of their lives.”
— Michael Neuman, MD, Women’s Imaging Radiologist, RSN
Interventional radiology (IR) provides minimally invasive image-guided diagnosis and treatment of disease. Although the range of procedures performed by interventional radiologists is broad, the unifying concept behind these procedures is the application of image guidance and minimally invasive techniques in order to minimize risk to the patient.
