Dr. Jennifer L. Pierce, talks about the importance of sub-specialty focus at UVA Radiology and Medical Imaging. The advantage at UVA is that our board certified radiologist physicians (MDs) have specialized training in reading and interpreting images from the specific area of your body being scanned.
“Every study, every time, is read by a radiologist with specialized fellowship training.”
All radiologists complete general training, but UVA radiologists complete an additional fellowship year and have comprehensive real-world experience in their specialty. Every scan a patient receives at UVA is interpreted by a doctor who exclusively focuses on that area of the body — helping to ensure accuracy and decreasing the need for additional imaging.
