PATIENT SAFETY

Inland Imaging takes strong measures to ensure each patient is safely treated or examined. A full-time staff is dedicated to monitoring the quality of each exam and daily evaluates patient results. This includes data collections of report turnaround time, radiation dosages, clinical accuracy, and tracking communication with referring physicians.

Each Inland Imaging staff member, whether it be a technologist or radiologist, is specially trained in their specific exam and continually participates in ongoing education, becoming more familiar with new protocols or updated health care indicators associated with their modality.

Inland Imaging equipment and facilities are meticulously maintained and must meet high measures of industry standards set by government and health care officials. Upgrades to software and medical imaging machines are done regularly as to meet strict guidelines.

Inland Imaging also evaluates the risk versus benefit of any exam before it is performed. Tests are conducted in a controlled setting and are targeted to limit radiation exposure to a specific part of the body. Patient history and age are major factors taken into consideration and evaluated before any exam will proceed as ordered.

Inland Imaging radiologists and other medical professionals have long recognized risks associated with some imaging procedures. For this reason, there have been rigorous standards implemented for each modality. In most cases, an associated risk is small relative to the diagnostic information obtained from most exams.
