In discussing safe ways to place inferior vena cava filters with IR colleagues in SR, we found that we could do this on completely anti-coagulated patients if we used the jugular vein and ultrasound for guidance. There is no need to stop the patient’s anticoagulation medicine due to the risk of puncturing the femoral artery during venous catheterization. It’s been a huge advantage for patients, referrers, and our practices.
We are a national coalition of independent, private radiology practices representing more than 1,700 radiologists. Our member groups are 100% owned by radiologist shareholders.
It’s been a phenomenal year of growth for one of Strategic Radiology‘s newest members, Summit Radiology in Fort Wayne, Ind., which grew from 60 to 80 subspecialized radiologists and from 21 to 26 hospital contracts in the past 12 months. President Daniel Branam, MD, attributes the surge to three things: 15 years of investment in building IT infrastructure and personnel, vigorous experimentation in radiologist practice models, and a confluence of current radiology events.
