Center of Excellence

Rhode Island’s First and Only Diagnostic Imaging Center of Excellence

The American College of Radiology (ACR) has named Rhode Island Medical Imaging (RIMI) one of the first outpatient diagnostic imaging Centers of Excellence (COE) in the country and the first in Rhode Island.  The rigorous COE process takes accreditation to a much higher level and offers recipients the unique ability to set the benchmark for superior quality in diagnostic imaging.  As a COE facility, you can be sure that RIMI:

  • Provides patients with the utmost confidence that they will receive the highest levels of imaging quality, safety, and care
  • Offers excellence at multiple levels — the professional staff, technology, policies, and procedures
  • Has exceeded the standard requirements of radiology accreditation
  • Has an ongoing process for self-assessment (and improvement) including participation in the ACR Dose Index Registry® and General Radiology Improvement Database

Moreover, this award formally recognizes RIMI’s ongoing commitment to providing the highest quality of medical imaging in Rhode Island.  RIMI’s world class radiologists combined with state-of-the-art imaging technology offers the people of Rhode Island the ultimate outpatient experience in diagnostic imaging – unrivaled by any other imaging center in the state.

World class medical imaging…… focusing on quality.

As a radiologist who specializes in the lungs and heart, I have seen too many examples of how devastating lung cancer can be for patients and their families. Many of my patients have been smoking for decades, starting when they were very young, or even kids.
