Washington Radiology Associates has 90 medical imaging technologists on staff located throughout our six clinical offices in DC, Maryland and Northern Virginia. These individuals have specific training and expertise in medical imaging including MRI (magnetic resonance imaging), CT (computerized tomography), bone density (DEXA), mammography, sonography and general x-ray.
WRA imaging technologists are educationally prepared, clinically experienced, and fully certified in their respective modalities. They are graduates of degreed programs from accredited institutions and maintain updated continuing education (CE) and continuing qualifications requirements (CQR) to ensure they have the most current training in state-of-the-art imaging technologies. WRA technologists are CPR-certified and licensed in DC, Maryland and Virginia. They are certified by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT), the largest radiography credentialing body in the country, and the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography (ARDMS) which is the foremost authority on sonography standards of excellence and professionalism. WRA meets all federal regulations for imaging technologists as required by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), Mammography Standards Quality Assurance Act (MSQA) as well as American College of Radiology (ACR) Accreditation requirements. Together, these standards help ensure the highest level of ethics, professionalism and patient care within the WRA organization.
WRA technologists are proficient in multiple clinical procedures. They are charged with obtaining detailed information about the patient’s history to ensure that we are providing the very best exam available. This expertise requires careful listening and precise attention to detail. On the most basic level however, our technologists are on the front line of providing care to our patients in a way that reveals empathy and concern for each individual’s unique needs. Keeping the emotional needs of the patient at the forefront of the exam is equally as important for the technologist as providing good positioning, a comfortable procedure, and education about the specific study they are performing.
By guiding patients through each step of their evaluation, our technologists ensure that we are capturing the highest quality image possible. This contribution of high-resolution, clear images helps fulfill WRA’s mission for our radiologists to provide the most accurate interpretations to help diagnose medical conditions quickly and efficiently.
