Your Extended Care Team


Radiologists are specially trained doctors who read and interpret pictures of the inside of the body to help understand your condition. They use medical imaging procedures such as computed tomography (CT), interventional radiology, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), nuclear medicine, positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT), X-ray, and ultrasound.



Pathologists are doctors who specialize in diagnosing conditions by examining tissues taken from a biopsy and bodily fluids such as blood and urine.


Nurses and Nurse Coordinators (RNs)

A nurse care coordinator is a nurse who specializes in organizing patient care and treatments by incorporating all members in the care team.
