Community Radiology

The Community Radiology Specialist Division provides services at all of the Emory Hospitals. The Division is the predominant provider of imaging services to Emory Johns Creek Hospital and Emory Saint Joseph’s Hospital, and is poised to provide comprehensive coverage for other hospitals, outpatient imaging centers, and other ventures in the future. The Division concentrates on providing outstanding customer service and subspecialized imaging expertise - both for patients and referring physicians. Comprised of subspecialty fellowship-trained, board-certified radiologists, emphasis is placed on clinical service with bidirectional use of PACS infrastructure to promote efficiency without sacrificing the quality of subspecialized interpretations. The division is vibrant, growing, and is playing an increasingly important role in radiology services in the greater Atlanta area.
