A central, founding principle of Strategic Radiology is the preservation of the independent radiology practice. We believe that all medicine is local and that the innovation and independence of private practice medicine is in the best interest of patient care. Our clinical platform and network, and our management services company are being designed to support local radiology with a national quality infrastructure.
Our practices invest in the health and wellness of their local communities by sponsoring, supporting, and participating in local community wellness and charitable events. Strategic Radiology practices employ more than 4,000 employees in more than 425 office locations nationwide and are active in local chambers of commerce, convention and visitors bureaus, and other community organizations.
Strategic Radiology practices operate more than 125 outpatient medical imaging centers, many in partnership with hospitals and health systems, providing convenient access to the full range of modality imaging, including breast- and lung-cancer screening for early detection of cancer.

Private practice provides a rich environment for innovation in radiology, and many Strategic Radiology physicians hold patents on innovative software, technology, and techniques. For instance, elite athletes from all over the world fly into Casper Wyoming for a minimally invasive treatment offered by a novel non-surgical MSK clinic operated by the smallest SR member practice.
Strategic Radiology provides a unified voice for private practice radiology advocacy for more than 1,200 private practice radiologists practicing medicine in more than 100 Congressional districts. Our Advocacy Committee coordinates Strategic Radiology participation in state and national advocacy through our member practices, issue stagtements, and local activism.
Our members are individual private practices that have come together around the following core values:
