The radiologists at Desert Medical Imaging use the knowledge they gain from treating patients to work toward innovative diagnostic techniques and treatments. Some of our radiologists also work with the companies who design and manufacture the imaging machines and systems we use, to fine-tune the performance and capabilities of future machines, so they offer radiologists more capabilities to work with.
