Our mission at Summit Radiology is to provide our community with state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging services in a safe, comfortable and welcoming environment; one in which we would be happy to treat our own families.
Summit Radiology has been awarded accreditation in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT) and Mammography by the American College of Radiology (ACR). The ACR accreditation “seal” is awarded to facilities for the achievement of high practice standards in imaging. When you see the seal, you’ll know the personnel are well qualified, through education and certification; the equipment is appropriate for the test or treatment you will receive; and the facility meets or exceeds quality assurance and safety guidelines
We focus on offering a high quality, service-oriented alternative for your diagnostic imaging needs. Physicians choose Summit Radiology because we offer exceptional quality in clinical services, images and diagnoses, and ease of scheduling. Patients choose Summit Radiology because we offer compassionate care and convenience at an affordable price.
>> One Bill: When a patient goes to the hospital or other facilities for an outpatient imaging procedure they will receive two bills; one for the scan and another for the radiologist’s interpretation. This often results in the patient having to pay more money out of their pocket. At Summit Radiology we will bill both the scan and the interpretation on one bill which means lower costs to the patient. In other words, NO SURPRISES- our lower overhead costs allow us to pass the savings on to our patients.
>> Exclusive Technology: We took great care in choosing the equipment to bring to the Rockford community. The Siemens Espree 1.5T Open Bore MRI was chosen for the advanced imaging technology, wide, 70cm bore, as well as the 550 lb. table limit. This means a comfortable environment for our patients (especially those who are larger or claustrophobic) and high-quality images for our physicians. Our Siemens Somatom CT offers advance 3D imaging capabilities, lower radiation dosage and shortened scan time. Our newest addition is GE Healthcare’s technology for mammography. We’ve equipped our facility with a comprehensive mix of screening and diagnostic technologies to provide accurate and timely care. With GE’s technology, there is no increase in dose from a 2D standard mammogram to a 3D view, which means there is no increased radiation to patients during a breast exam. We have also added an advanced technology that enables us to perform contrast-enhanced spectral mammograms. Summit Radiology is the only facility in the region to offer this specialized exam.
>> Fast, friendly and efficient service: Our on-site radiologists allow us to deliver the interpretation report in 24 hours or less. In addition, we accept STAT appointments and can turn reports around quickly when needed. We strive to leave room in our schedule to handle add-ons and allow for flexible scheduling.
>> Non-clinical environment: We have created a spa-like atmosphere that helps calm and welcome our patients. Warm colors, comforting decor, and peaceful surroundings help make the experience less stressful. Easy access to our facility and no long wait times.
